City Beer Store Celebrates 7th Anniversary With Alpine Collaboration Beer – Magnificent Seven
San Francisco, CA – City Beer Store plans to release a specialty beer, Magnificent Seven, an IPA created by Alpine Beer Company for City Beer’s seven year anniversary. The seven year anniversary festivities will take place on Saturday, May 18, 2013 at City Beer Store beginning at noon.
Owners Craig and Beth Wathen traveled to Alpine, California to take part in the brewing process of Magnificent Seven with brewer Shawn McIlhenney. Magnificent Seven, a 7.7% ABV IPA, has seven distinct malts and seven hop additions. Magnificent Seven will be available in bottles and draft for sale during the anniversary celebration. Bottles will be exclusively sold at City Beer Store.
“We are honored to have the privilege to work with Shawn and Pat on City Beer Store’s Seven Year Anniversary Project. This collaboration is a celebration of the mutual respect and admiration we have with Alpine Beer Company.” Craig Wathen, owner.
City Beer Store, the original beer bottleshop and tasting bar, opened its doors in May 2006 in the SOMA neighborhood district of San Francisco. City Beer Store quickly attracted local beer lovers and others interested in educating themselves in craft beer. In October 2011, City Beer Store expanded their bottleshop and tasting bar into the neighboring space, creating more room for customers to taste, shop, and share beer stories with the City Beer Store community.
