Twitter is headquartered in China Basin, the neighborhood in San Francisco that also holds the Giants Ballpark. It’s also where the brewpub 21st Amendment is located and the pair have teamed up to creat a tweet, er sweet, beer for Twitter.
From the press release:
Today, the 21st Amendment Brewery is brewing a special Twitter Brew for their neighbors in South Park at Twitter.com. “Spring Tweet” is a Spring-time ale, brewed with Barley and wheat malt with a subtle hop flavor and aroma and a very quaffable beer at a mere 5% alcohol by volume. The beer will be released on Monday April 6th.
“The Twitter community has been very supportive of the 21st Amendment and we really wanted to give something back to the community,” says Brewmaster and co-owner of the 21st Amendment Shaun O’Sullivan. The Twitter community has held many “Tweetups” at the 563 2nd Street location, across the street from the company’s headquarters in South Park. Tweetups are an opportunity for the Twitter community to meet up and come together in person, rather than over the 140 character limit on Twitter.
The 21st Amendment is active on Twitter and posts “tweets” at www.twitter.com/21stAmendment , and will be posting twitter updates and pictures throughout today’s brew of “Spring Tweet.” Search for #twitterbrew on the Twitter search at http://search.twitter.com/ . Twitter is supporting the brewing project, donating t-shirts and tweets to the 21st Amendment. “We even put out to the Twitter community a ‘name the Twitter brew’ contest and have received some excellent names and ideas for today’s brew,” says co-founder of the 21st Amendment, Nico Freccia.

Now if Shaun could only figure out how to tweet some of this
beer over to us in Texas, I’d love to try it. I’f tweeted a few brew days and I dig that 21A are joining in the fun.
