Your training regimen paid off! You've survived to the last day of SF Beer Week. Everything you sip today is just gravy.

Begin your victory lap at 21st Amendment:

Brewers' Sunday Tea

Where: 21st Amendment Brewery, 563 Second St. (at Bryant), 369-0900

When: 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

Cost: A la carte

What: And by "tea," we mean "beer." Enjoy Fatted Calf beer sausages paired with strong ales from 21A and Magnolia. Sausage before beer, you're in the clear.

Your liver has become a lean, mean filtering machine. But you don't want the little guy to get complacent. For Day 10 of beer "week," throw it a beer-cocktail curve ball:

Beer Cocktails at Alembic

Where: The Alembic Bar, 1725 Haight (at Cole), 666-0822

When: Noon-2 a.m.

Cost: Pay per drink

What: Enjoy five cocktails made with beer and/or brewing ingredients. Highlights include a drink with house-made IPA syrup and a cocktail that melds Gosling's Black Seal rum with Anchor Old Foghorn barleywine.

Whiskey is pretty much distilled beer, right? Mix some more beer with it!

Booze and Brew Brawl

Where: 15 Romolo, 15 Romolo (at Broadway), 398-1359

When: 9 p.m.-midnight

Cost: Pay per drink

What: Support local bartenders from establishments such as Smuggler's Cove, 15 Romolo, and Bourbon and Branch as they compete in a beer cocktail mix-off. Featured ingredients include Firestone Walker beer and local St. George Spirits. This is a sporting competition SFoodie can get behind.
