Last Thursday, I helped the San Francisco Brewers Guild put together a fun event at the Old Mint with Flipside and the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society called Hops and History. My part during the event included being the moderator of a panel discussion about opening and running a brewery in the city of San Francisco.
One of my favorite parts of the evening was a gallery showing of local breweriana, provided by my friend Ken Harootunian, along with some pieces from Anchor Brewing and some labels from SF Brewers Guild executive director Brian Stechschulte.

Today’s infographic is an interesting one. It was created by the makers of a new iPhone app, Beer Hunt, which looks to be giving Untappd a run for the money. It was created by Monkey Inferno, located in San Francisco. Essentially, it gives the stats of beer check-ins for Beer Hunt’s first ten days of use. It will be interesting to see it updated for the first month, first quarter, etc. to see how the data changes.
