RateBeer Gallery is an ongoing series of Bay Area beer events focusing on what's in the glass and beyond. It's a forum for tasting new, beautiful, best and strange and also for brewers to discuss topics on beer culture, art, ethics, history, aesthetics, process, people and more.
We went to the last RateBeer Gallery event and it was a lot of fun, really a new spin on the beer fest. Also there were some really good beers available that have never been distributed here.
This time they will be offering selections from Modern Times (a top new brewer in the world), Sante Adairius, Almanac, Russian River, AleSmith (brewer of the year), Deschutes, Great Divide, Stone, Sierra Nevada, Drakes, Bear Republic and more...
