Menu for Happy Hour #0005 – Tonight!

Mala Hot Pot Double IPA

Four different types of hops give this ale a complex taste complimented by the influence of galangal, chili flakes and lemongrass. Sichuan peppercorns add a final tincture, lending each sip a gentle numbing effect.
(7.3% A.B.V)

Vanilla Orange Caramel Gluten-Free Saison

Eschew the usual intestinal adventures brought on by other farmhouse ales. Using orange-blossom honey, madagascar vanilla pods and home-made caramel, the floral and citrus aroma says “Never let gluten get in the way of a good time.”
(5.6% A.B.V)

Let Them Drink Kake

Hey Philly, we got your TastyKakes right here, in this here beer (two pounds of them in this one keg to be exact). We San Franciscans offer this as a symbol of an enduring friendship between cities based around a mutual hatred of the Dallas Cowboys and Terrell Owens. Wash down that Krimpet with a taste of honey, vanilla and lemon zest. For those about to boo Santa Claus, we salute you.
(6.7% A.B.V)

Il Birra Fernet (release candidate 1.3)

This is the next big thing: A beer inspired by an aperitif inspired by stomach medicine. There might not be enough space to list all the spices in this beer: chamomile, myrrh, Ceylon cinnamon, anise seed, gentian root, cardamom, wormwood, echinacea, peppermint, saffron, mugwort, Yerba Santa, Crystal hops and licorice root. Made it!
(6.0% A.B.V)

The People have Spoken, and they say “More Weizenbock, Please.”

We’re proud to announce that on Saturday, April 13th, 2013, Comrades Brewing took home the “People’s Choice” award at YPAC’s Brewtastic Bash for our Roasted Banana and Donut Bread Pudding Weizenbock, taking home a gorgeous trophy hand-made(!) by the talented Julie Vandermeer of Family House.

While we’re flattered even to be nominated, the real winners were everyone who attended, drank all the great beers at the event and who gave generously to Family House, an organization that serves as a home away from home for families of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses by providing physical comfort and emotional support, free from financial concerns.

To all those whom we met and raised glasses with, it was an awesome time and we hope to see you at one of our upcoming events. If you couldn’t make it, you were missed, but we have a busy summer ahead of us, and we hope to see you soon.

Before the award…


…and after! (Can you spot the difference?)


Food Menu For Happy Hour #0003

Happy Hour #0003 rapidly approaches. Feast your gustatory imagination on this menu by Mark Amezquita.

Grilled Rice Ball

filled with slow roasted pork or fried egg plant
with spicy mayo served on dressed greens

Grilled pizzas

margarita, hot coppa, eggplant, garlic,
available with green salad

Chicken adovada wings

in a spicy New mexican style chile rojo sauce
on top of crema jicama carrot slaw

These will all pair very nicely with our beers on tap this Friday evening. Come wash down some pork-filled rice balls with beer from beneath the underground.

Now Fermenting: The Birra Fernet and Some Old Favorites

Milled Barley

Comrades is gearing up for a busy spring, and while it is tempting to kick back and relax whilst serving someone else’s beer with our name on it, we feel that our comrades deserve a little something more. Thus, we brew late into the night to bring you…

The Birra Fernet

A tribute to the finest Italian Aperitif/Digestif/Fire-Water ever invented, you will relish its spicy pretentiousness.

The Smoked Salted Caramel Belgian Quadrupel

A delicious re-imagining of an old hit. Prepare to be smoked out of your own mind.

The (improved) NorCal Winter Gluten-Free Saison

We’ve tweaked our existing recipe to make it as dry and cool as a breezy spring evening in the East Bay.

The Mala Hot Pot Double IPA

Surely our most celebrated and sought-after beer, if you haven’t tasted this yet, you’ve probably never been to one of our events.

Comrades’ very best yeast is working 24/7 to get this beer properly fermented for your enjoyment at Comrades’ Happy Hour #0003 on Friday, March 29th. Don’t miss it!

You can taste it

Everywhere we go, people demand to know:

“Where is it that I can taste these ridiculous beers?”

So be it. We will tell you where (and when) to taste these ridiculous beers.
