Hide Your Livers -- It's Strong Beer Month

Categories: Beer

21st Amendment
Last week we recommended girding your liver with Triple IPAs in anticipation of SF Beer Week. This week, we'll bolster your Beer Week training regimen with a slew of heavy hitting, high-ABV offerings.

Beginning February 1, Magnolia and 21st Amendment will each tap six strong beers (8.5 percent ABV is the minimum cutoff). Try all 12 beers and get your card punched, and you'll walk away with a commemorative glass, a profound sense of accomplishment, and possibly a crushing headache.

(Note that beers are not guaranteed to last all month, and glassware is only available while supplies last.)

This year will see some brand new brews, and the return of some old favorites, such as Magnolia Smokestack Lightning (which coincides with the opening of the new Magnolia Brewery and Smokestack BBQ in Dogpatch at the end of February).
