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

Dogbrick (11609) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Sample at Denver Rare Beer Tasting VII on 09/25/2015. Cloudy orange-gold color with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly to a sparse outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of citrus. oak, yeast and malt. Medium body with flavors of tart citrus and apples, yeast, oak and malt. The finish is moderately tart with a lemon and funky yeast aftertaste. Good beer all around.

hopdog (11602) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2007
750ml, corked and caged bottle, shared courtesy of Phatz (thanks!, I guess I owe you my next new born). Poured a medium and lightly hazy (darker haze as we got towards the bottom of the bottle) golden color with a smaller sized off white head. Upon the first whiff, I was greeted with a plethora of incredible aromas that instantly put me in that ‘special’ place in my mind! I could smell this one all day and night long. Aromas of cherries, grapes, apples, funky, brett, light yeast, citrus, and vanilla. All the aromas melded together perfectly. I was also getting a light spiciness, maybe cinnamon. Tastes of tart green apples, citrus, woody, light yeast and vanilla. Light and soft body.

kermis (11232) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2014
2007 vintage bottle shared. Pours cloudy orange with a ring off white head. Aroma of citrus, light barnyard, soft funk, peaches, light woody. Flavour is light moderate acidic, surely softened with age. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, it’s really good but this is surely very much softened with age in every way.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2010 Update: I got to taste the 2010 version at Lost Abbey and man this is a funked up release! Awesome horse blanket, barnyard. Really different this year! Bobby91 you are the man. Awfully nice to share a beer of this rarity. Damn fine. Dark gold pour wtih a white head. Vinegar up front wtih some tart apples, tropical fruit, lemon, wet earthy tones and some light funk. Flavor is sour, but the sourness does not detract from the fruitiness of this beauty. Its sour, don’t get me wrong. But the array of fruits that danced on my tongue with some soft yeasty notes provided a real drinking experience. But what would I know...I was drunk and I am not a sourhead...HAHA. I wasnt drunk when i tasted this one.

hopscotch (10644) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle... RBSG ‘08... This beer rocks!... Murky, straw-colored ale with little to no head. Lightly acidic, fruity nose affords notes of berries, cherries and pale grain sweetness with insinuations of toffee and butterscotch. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and restrained carbonation. The flavor is a perfect marriage of acidity and sugar; tartness and sweetness. The tartness wins out, but doesn’t rule the roost with an iron fist. A notation of cherry. The finish is tart and then dries out. Thanks go out to Tomme and all the folks at Lost Abbey who provided this beer and made us all feel like royalty!

2008 bottle thanks to Diego! Pours a cloudy orange with paperthin white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong funk, oak, lemon, and yeast. Thin mouthfeel with light sourness, oak, with lingering tart finish. Held up very well, so impressive.

2009 bottle @ Steve_0 during my 10k tick fest. Pours a murky yellow orange appearance with an off white head. A little acetic, fair amount of funk, lemon, cobweb, lemon, white grapes in the nose. Moderately tart, very funky. Tons of lemon, dust, and dank basement notes. Low sweetness. Some herbal notes. Pretty juicy. Nice.

KimJohansen (10423) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2008
Hazy orange with medium beige head. Sour aroma with notes of barnyard, orange, vinegar and wood. Sour flavour with notes of wood, barnyard and grapefruit. Sour finish. Misses the pureness that lambic has. Not dry enough.
