LUCKY HAND BREWING @ SF BEER WEEK!

SF Beer Week runs from February 10 until the 19th this year.  It's a madhouse of meet-the-brewer events, special dinners, food and beer pairings, and even a fun run with pit stops to sample new brews.  I was asked by Lucky Hand Brewing Company to document some of their events this week and it has been a blast! 

Lucky Hand is an organic beer company with two different beers thusfar... the Cali Common, a California Common Lager, and their Black Lager, a dark but very drinkable Schwarzbier.

The first event I photographed was a tasting event at Electric Mayhem on Mission St.  Adam and Bill of Lucky Hand poured samples of Cali Common and the Black Lager.  Electric Mayhem also made special onion rings using Cali Common in the batter.

After sampling the fare at Electric Mayhem, we headed over to Q Restaurant on Clement St.  Q was hosting a meet the brewer event, with a keg of Cali Common tapped and bottles of both beers available as well.  The specials for the evening also included food and beer pairings... Lucky Hand Black Lager and molasses braised beef medallion with Cypress Grove goat cheese on mashed potatoes, for example ;)

I was also able to sample Q's apple crisp, which was awesome... I would highly recommend a visit.  Check back for more beer week posts.  There will be more food and beer images to drool over ;)
