COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You’ve made it to 547 Haight Street. This destination is more San Francisco than Rice A Roni, Chinatown, and Lombard Street combined. Welcome to Broadway for brewers everywhere. Everyone who is anyone has poured their kegs here. For the last 20 years, this place has launched careers, confirmed legacies, and since 1987 the only name you need to know is David Keene. Take a seat. Tip Strong. Nod appreciatively and don’t ask stupid questions. Welcome to Big Daddy’s House known to most simply as "The T-Room." Here the bartenders are fluent in English, German, Flemish, French, Waloon and Czech. But they’re most known for their American Lip Service. Watch it. The lady with the jet black hair behind the bar eats idiots for lunch. At 547 Haight Street, you won’t find any Cable Cars except for this one. But if you’re standing outside the Dutch Doors of the World Famous Toranado, you surely found the most interesting place in all San Francisco. Its’ about RESPECT. Dave you continue to have ours. Here’s to 20 more years of punishing livers everywhere. Cheers Gina, Jim, Tomme, Vince and the Brewers of Port Brewing

Damned near perfect. So sour, and purposefully so I realize, but overwhelmingly at times. Otherwise, pure magic in a bottle. Very thankful to the bartender who went out of his way to try and hook me up with this bottle which for awhile didn’t seem like it was going to happen. Funk, apples, lemon, sourness all in the nose. Apples seemed to take over in the flavor department. So good.

@ Toronado 16-3-4: härlig syrlighet med toner av grape och gräs. Elegant balanserad med en trevlig eftersmak. Underbar.

Bottle at Toronado. 2014. Nose is full of funky, barny, hay, light lemon. A hint of cheese. Moderately hazy yellow with a medium white head. Taste is a wonderful compliment of hay, zesty citrus, lightly sour, and funk. Just amazing. Everything I dreamed it would be. wow

Bottle - Funky stone fruit. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Tons of tart stone fruit, light acidity and a bit of a dry finish. Nice and balanced.

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2015
2014 bottle at Toronado in SF. Pours a hazy light orange deep golden color with an off white head. Big sour aroma and flavor that lingers long into the finish, but not much character otherwise. Great beer overall, but honestly a bit disappointed seeing as that it hits #1 on the top 50 sours. Glad I got to try it though.

I’ve fortunate to have tried the first version of Cable Car and many others. Continues to be one of the best american sours. Perfect level of tartness and level of carbonation. Taste is that very sour, bitter and tart sour ale. Hit it hits your palate with a major hit of that tartness but leaves you wanting more. Look forward to trying new versions if made going forward. Cheers!

Sour grapefruit flavor, tart, raisins, woody, funky, grapes, oak, vinous, cheesy, lemon zest notes. Great balance in this one, glad to have tried it.
