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

2009 Bottle from Toronado in San Diego. Poured a light golden color with nice foamy head. Aroma of vinegar, spices, dried fruit, lemon. Nice tartness with some brett present. Very nice carbonation surprisingly. Overall very good, im glad I had the opportunity to get this.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2008
Bottle. Sampled at Monk’s Cafe Lost Abbey Dinner 2/12/08. When I arrived at Monks for the dinner and saw this beer on the menu, I was incredibly excited. I thought I’d never get to sample this beer; leave it to Monks to prove me wrong! Pours transparent golden, capped with a minimal off-white head. Nose is tart, with some wild yeast, citrus, and some earthy and herbal notes. Aroma is a bit restrained, and not over-the-top funky. Flavor is tart, with some citrus, grass, wild yeast, tropical fruit and white grape notes adding complexity. Lively carbonation. Finish is long and primarily lactic. This is really well crafted and seems to emphasize some of the more subtle character of American sour ales, rather that going for intense, mouth puckering tartness. Another all-star performance from Lost Abbey! (Rating #500)

Part of the incredible line up at Monk’s Lost Abbey dinner. Excellent beer, tart and mildy funky on the nose, tart and estery both coming together and showing just enough restraint. Thomme and LA have mastered the interplay of flavors and providing intracate but drinkable beers.

dogfish120love (1161) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 14, 2016
2016 vintage Pours a clear orange with a thin white lacing. The aroma is vinegar, cider/apples, lemon and oak. Rather tart and somewhat lactic with a thin yet fluffy mouthfeel. As it opens/warms there is definitely some grape and tree bark. This is a well made beer, but it lacks the complexity other beers within the genre

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - OCT 18, 2013
On tap at the Toronado. Aroma was clean Brett, freshly-squeezed Meyer lemon juice, Rainier cherries, and a slight funk. Flavor was very much the same with maybe the cleanest palate on a beer I've ever had. So crisp, so refreshing... I could drink a ton of this superb beer.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2009 Bottle at the SDT Room. Made the trip from LA expressly to have this bottle, and was not disappointed. Opens with an aroma of thick yeast, flour flowers, and lemon juice concentrate. Down into flavors of the same, plus very light mandarin orange, really slight unripe cranberry and a smooth finish. Carbonation is very soft, and the finish doesn’t linger. No mustard notes or particular funk.
