Dogfish Head on Draft plus food

l

Has anyone had Dogfish Head 90-minute IPA on draft lately at a place that also has decent food? I can get it bottled at Alembic...and on draft at Toronado, but no food there.

    That's a pretty tall order. Not much distribution of Delaware-based breweries out here...

      that used to be the case, but Dogfish Head is pretty widely distributed nowadays, especially in pubs. Victory used to be hard to find too, but it's around now. The hardest beers to find are from the midwest, like three floyds, founders, goose island. I've not had much luck finding Brooklyn out here either

      Just bring some food to Toronado. The obvious choice would be rosamunds right next door, which is delicious and when ordered your asked "here, togo, or next door." Or the amazing Memphis Minnies is across the street. Theres some semi ok pizza close, and alibabas cave close as well.

        Yes, this is a very tall order, I know. Just enjoyed it on draft at some very nice eateries in DC this past week...and since Toronado has it...well, wishful thinking I suppose.

        I've been seeing bottles around a bit more at places like Anchor & Hope and Alembic, and recently bought a 4-pack at Andronico's.

        Ah yes! We often bring the Rosamunde sausages into Toronado. Always a great plan....

          Monks Kettle

          The Trappist has the 90 on tap but not much in the way of food.

            I have never eaten the food, but Pizza Inferno on Fillmore carries it.

          It's on the draft list on the Luka's Taproom Web site, and they have great food. I'd call before making a special trip, the list on the Web site is sometimes out of date. It's a couple of blocks from the 19th St BART station.

            I've definitely had it within the past two months.

            It's been on the board at Ben and Nick's on College near the Rockridge BART station. The food at Ben and Nick's is pretty-good pub fare.

              You ready for an awesome answer?? Sea Salt in Berkeley has it on tap, AND its $3 during their TWO happy hours (3-6 and 10-12 pm). Great bar snacks during those times, including the grilled oysters and ahi tuna slider, as well as the very awesome regular menu. go now.

                The Republic which is in the Marina has it on draft. It's a cute neighborhood pub/sports bar and the kitchen is actually really decent (if slightly overpriced).

                  Pacific Coast Brewery in Oakland had it on tap last Friday (don't love the food though).
