Help finding Bell's Hopslam beer in San Francisco

empbw Mar 9, 2011 10:19 AM

For my husband's birthday I would love to find him some Bell's Hopslam. I know it has recently become available on the East Coast, but I am new to the Bay Area and have no idea where to look.

Most accessible areas would be along Market Street, Hayes Valley, the Haight, or Cole Valley.

Thanks in advance!

    Bell's from Kalamazoo? I double-checked at their web site but they still have no distribution in California. The closest is Arizona, so maybe you could find some if you go to spring training.

    It's too bad - Bell's has fantastic beer, as I was reminded during our vacation in Michigan last summer. I haven't tried the Hopslam yet. Maybe someday they'll expand to the Bay Area!

      City Beer is your best bet, but it is long shot. However, they have been known to make some road trips to pick up some beers that are not normally available in the Bay Area, so it might be possible. I tend to get my Bell's fix when I am in Arizona, as mentioned.
