There are some great stories in it: SFoodie beer writer Jason Henry dives into the recent craze for sour beer, including some details on a few upcoming local projects devoted to the tart arts. Drinks writer Lou Bustamante explores the new bar trend of barrel-aging cocktails, and breaks down where to get an aged bevvy if you so choose. Wine writer Stevie Stacionis looks into interesting small-batch wines from California winemakers that go far beyond the usual grapes and styles. Plus there are listings galore.
