If you like beer and rock music -- and really, who doesn't? -- you should probably cancel your plans for this Saturday, Dec. 7, and check out the Bay Brewed instead. It's a daytime pairing of local rock bands (Mikal Cronin, Shannon and the Clams) with local beer breweries (Anchor, Almanac, Speakeasy, 21st Amendment, Headlands). And the way it works is, once you buy a ticket, you get to drink as much of any of the delicious varieties of beer on offer as you want. Since the cost of one ticket would cover the door charge plus maybe a handful of rounds at a normal show, this makes the Bay Brewed an excellent place to investigate both local bands and local beer.
