A Chowhound on a mission has traced the perfect route for beer geeks in San Francisco, no designated driver needed. It all started when bbulkow and friends vowed to walk to every brewery in San Francisco in a single day and try every beer. Their 10-hour walk to seven places ended up covering 11 miles (a couple of bus rides eased the longer stretches) and 50 beers. Among the highlights:
• A "strong adherence to style" at Social Kitchen—excellent sausages and a classic West Coast IPA.
• The stout at Southern Pacific, where they also picked up an "inverted root beer float."
• The amber-style house brew at Southpaw, which recalled Anderson Valley Brewing Company's Boont Amber Ale.
• Speakeasy's brewing warehouse, a top pick for those who love beers that showcase extraordinary hops.
