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

Theydon_Bois (9944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s 30th celebrations, 08/02/13, big thanks to the birthday boy for sharing this one ! Hazed mid amber with a thin off white head that clears edgeward. Nose is sour tarte berries, wood, lemon, light vinegar notes, musty funky tones, sugars, burnt notes. Taste follows - lemon, citrus, sour apples, grandads shed, old beano’s, grape, light vinegar, wood. Medium in body with moderate carbonation lending towards a tarte and puckering finish. Great stuff!

JulienHuxley (3480) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle. Hazy gold pour with thin white head. Very funky, "clean" as in centered on the wild/funky aromas, not fruity, light earthiness, maybe a hint of something lemony. Flavor is on par with other cali sours of the same style I’ve had (temptation, beatification) as a very clean sourness, lemony, with a dry finish. Very good, but not mindblowing.

htnicholas (49) - California, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). 2012 vintage. Pours deep yellow straw color with a small poorly retained white head and some lacing. Aroma is slightly funky, with barnyard, oak and slight fruity notes. Taste is not too sour but with complex funky notes, citrus, oak, Brett and balanced sweetness. Mouthfeel is really dry, tart, and crisp. An outstanding wild ale. I loved it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ChinoSkillzian (167) - The Hills, California, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Sampled at Woodshop 2011. Pours a hazy bright golden color with minimal head. Aromas of grapefruit, lemonade, acid, medium funk, overripe lime. The palate is nice and drying, but not overly acidic, with flavors of tart peach, pink lemonade, slight funk. Well balanced.

2010 Bottle, 750 ML split a stupid amount of ways.

A - Straw yellow appearance. Small whisp of the head and leaves a nice 1 finger head that fades fast.

S - The nose is huge! A very acidic, lots of grape skin, hay, rope and leather. Super funky with lemon as well.

T - Taste is even better. I get a hint of butter but really, it’s a lemon lime funk bomb, a lot of rope, minor fecal taste (yes seriously) and I get a really great grapefruit rind, ropey and sweet.

M - Insanely dry, super bright carbonation and mouthfeel. Really excellent. This makes the beer amazing.

O - Well, I didn’t hype this one up too long or sit on it forever. I traded for it to enjoy on my 2,000th beer rating and BOOM enjoying it with some nice friends from RateBeer. Excited to have this with you all. Thanks!

AirForceHops (3519) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle shared by Adam Jackson during the RBNG. Hazy pale yellow color, still good carbonation level. Aroma of tart lemons, moldy oak, sour grapes.

Flavor is much the same as the nose with a sharp acidic sensation in the back of the taste buds. Very dry texture. I guess everybody goes nuts over this because of the rarity. It’s a great sour if you’re into that sort of thing.
