Another source for North Coast’s Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout in San Francisco

Filed under: food,San Francisco — Tags: — Towse @ 6:10 pm

Before a chance met friend pointed me to the Kezar back in June 2011, the only place I knew to find North Coast’s Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout on tap was at the mothership, the North Coast brewpub up in Fort Bragg. That’s fine for the few times a year we go up for a few days, but not for those of us who think Old Rasputin is tops and would rather have it on draft than in a pricey dinky bottle.

For those who are searching for Old Rasputin on tap in San Francisco, we found it yesterday at Inferno Pizza, 1800 Fillmore St, corner of Sutter. (Tasty pizza there as well. …)

Old Rasputin is also available at the Kezar Bar (900 Cole @ Carl). (Not at the other Kezar Bar on Stanyan, I’ve been told.)

The Page at 298 Divisadero Street (at Page) also has it on nitro-tap, alleges the Web. We’ll check that out soon.

Know of any other places in San Francisco where Old Rasputin is on tap? Comments welcome!

Sunrise this morning. A surprise visitor.

Filed under: photographs,ships — Tags: , , , — Towse @ 5:11 pm

The first photo is a sunrise image on a perfect day with Mount Diablo in the background. A flash of something white to my left distracted me and I discovered the Sea Princess had snuck in overnight. Perfect day for our visitors, who will be leaving on the evening tide. Last photograph shows the ship an hour or so later.

Waning Crescent Moon

To the left, lit, the tower for the eastern span of the SF-O Bay Bridge, scheduled to be fully open in 2013. Center with all the lights is Pier 17. Piers 17 and 15 are being restored and rebuilt to house the Exploratorium. Across the Bay, the blaze of light is the incredibly busy Port of Oakland.
