When: Sat., Oct. 10, 5-7:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $42-$72
The greatest gastronomical debate of our times isn’t between Coke and Pepsi or Burger King and Mickey D’s, but rather between sour and bitter beer — at least if you’re a craft beer aficionado. For at least one afternoon, you won’t have to choose: The Trappist (460 8th St., Oakland) is hosting its second annual Sour/Bitter Fest in the bar’s parking lot. Ten breweries (including The Rare Barrel, Craftsman Brewing, and Sante Adairius Rustic Ales) will each pour a sour beer and a bitter beer — a total of twenty different brews that participants can taste as many times as they’d like with the purchase of a $42 ticket. Meanwhile, hungry beerhounds can purchase $2 “bites” meant to pair with sour and bitter beers, courtesy of five local restaurants, plus Highwire Coffee. Participating restaurants include Abura-ya, Chowhaus, Homestead, Ramen Shop, and Tamarindo. Tickets are available via — Luke Tsai
