Anything quick and decent in the hotel or within a block or so?



There’s a Mel’s Diner across the street
- probably your best bet for inexpensive, diner, morning food (opens at 6 am).

What about Friday day? There are a few places to hit after Anchor and Speakeasy. People don’t think much of SF Brewing Company but it is just a walk from Rogue and is very beer-culturally significant historically.

Also Thirsty Bear, 21st Amendment, Beach Chalet and retailers for bottle buyers.

Hi Chris,

I just set the bus itinerary here.

I’ve posted the bus details to the event page here:
http://ratebeer.com/event/9454/

Bus leaves Cathedral Hotel at 9.30-9.45am
Bear Republic - 11.15 - 1:00
Russian River - 1:35 - 3:20
Lagunitas - 4:00 - 5:30
Marin - 6:10 - 7:20
Grand tasting @ Drake’s- San Leandro 8:00

We are on an excellent and tight schedule, so I’ll be making a "last beer is in hand" announcement at each place 15 minutes prior to departure.

You might want to hit Dry Creek Kitchen in Healdsburg Saturday. It’s right around the corner from Bear Republic.

Further out but worth a little effort is the El Do in Sonoma. Girl and the Fig is very nice too on Sonoma Square.

French Laundry is a foodie mecca of sorts (doubtful you can get in - was filling up months in advance)

MrDick can probably fill you in on some local SF joints.


I’d try Dry Creek Kitchen if I knew how to incorporate that into the bus-riding schedule. But since the schedule has not been announced, I don’t see it happening.

Cyprus sounds great, but DINNER ONLY. Also wouldn’t necessarily need anything fine dining (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Just great food.

El Dorado Kitchen sounds great. In fact, that whole hotel looks quaint and delightful. But once again, I’m not sure if I can get there on this particular venture.

French Laundry has long been on my list. And I had a reservation a few years ago and then flaked out last-minute when we cancelled our weekend San Fran trip. Almost had to pay a hefty fee, if I recall. But it’s still on my list.

I love that place.


Even the $6 scoop of rice?

I’ll pass on that place.

That’s the Fizzy Yellow Beer tap handle at Pizza Port. Stick with the tapas, rube.

I hope I get a chance to go to Salt House so I can see how their poutine measures up.

Wow, nice. I walk by this place every day to and from work. Didn’t know they had poutine on the menu! Even if it is $11, ouch.
