Nice job wrapping up the first week of the new year.

Nice job dropping what you’re doing right now and making plans to drink a beer and eat duck liver mousse tonight.

Just a really nice job overall.

As for where all that quaffing and bread breaking will happen: here’s the Almanac Taproom, a new bar and restaurant from one of the city’s finest breweries that’s open right now and looks like this.

We’re confident that you’ve enjoyed an Almanac pint or two over the years. Their lineup of beers has earned them accolades since they launched in 2010, and no small amount of pressure to open their own drinking establishment has been applied.

That pressure worked. And their taproom, complete with a year-round beer garden and this menu of beer and beer-friendly food, is exactly where you’ll want to hang out from now on. The space feels personal, from the vintage San Francisco prints to the mural depicting Almanac’s brewery and bottle art.

But if it’s not beer garden weather, grab some seats at the bar and a round of taproom exclusives. Perhaps the New Taproom Smell IPA paired with some charcuterie. Perhaps a glass of Nectarine Cobbler paired with a duck sausage sandwich.

Perhaps something else if you want something else.

Lauren Sloss requires a climate that allows her to wear motorcycle boots daily. She likes her bourbon neat and her martinis dirty, and would like to be the lead singer of a punk rock band when she grows up.
