Our favorite morsel from the blogs.
I met brewers Patrick Horn and Bryan Hermannsson at a craft brew mixer in the test kitchen at Chow.com. Horn, of Pacific Brewing Laboratories, and Hermannsson, of Clara St. Brewing, are the kind of guys that make you realize what a fertile place for craft brewing this area is, and why. Serious home brewers seeking to bust out of the garage, they're the suds equivalent of chefs who turn to pop-ups or food trucks to launch self-expressive eateries. Thursday nights in SOMA, Horn and Hermannsson host a beer open house at Clara St., inviting in guests to taste what they've been working on (I've never been able to wrap up my SFoodie workload early enough to make it, but one of these weeks, I swear…).
