Celebrate: He'Brew Turns Eleven

If you're in the Bay Area this week, you'll want to do what you can to make your way to Haight and Filmore (in San Francisco) to take part in He'Brew's 11th anniversary party. Jeremy Cowan, a guy you can't help but like, will be there to tap the Jewbelation 11, along with a few other Schmaltz products.

Keeping with their tradition, "11" was made using eleven types of malts and eleven hop varieties - they wimped out by not going for 11 types of yeast if you ask me. Maybe in 2008 they'll man up and bring in water from 12 different streams - just a thought. I've thoroughly enjoyed the previous Jewbelation offerings and look forward to trying this years version, hopefully with Jeremy on his big day.

In addition to the "11", the Toronado will also have on tap a few other great beers to enjoy. According to his email, this is the lineup:
  • Jewbelation 11
  • Jewbelation 11 on Rye (soaked in Rye Whiskey barrels)
  • Vintage Jewbelation - from 2006
  • Origin (Pomegranate Strong Ale)
  • Bittersweet Lenny's RIPA
  • Lenny on Rye (also aged in Rye Whiskey barrels)
  • Genesis
  • Messiah Bold
  • Coney Island Lager
NOTE: I have tried the Lenny on Rye and found it to be utterly fantastic, a unique flavor profile to be certain.

Can't make this? Don't worry, Jeremy's got two other San Francisco events lined up for the week.
