Life & Limb Beer in SF

lovebitessf Dec 8, 2009 06:42 AM

Has anyone tried the new collaboration beer between Dogfish Head and Sierra Nevada, Life & Limb? How is it? Who sells it? No, haven't started calling around to find it yet. Taking the shortcut of asking.

    There's a bit about this in the story on Chow about Sierra Nevada

      City Beer mentioned it in their newsletter a few weeks ago. They also tapped a keg of Limb and Life on the 24th but I imagine that's long gone.

        I liked it. It's definitely sweet with maple syrup, chocolate, and vanilla tones. It reminded me in some ways of Dogfish Head's Palo Santo Marron.

        Whole Foods Potrero Hill should a few left. BevMo on Geary lists one being available.

        Toronado had the second runnings beer, Limb and Life, on tap late last week. Not sure if it is still on.

          They had Life & Limb on tap at the Alembic earlier this week for $6 a glass. (I was there Wednesday.) It's a dark, sweet, sipper. In retrospect, I wish I ordered it with the bar's warm chocolate chip cookies--I think that would have been a killer pairing! A nice desserty beer for sure.
