New Healthy Spirits in the Inner Richmond [San Francisco]

pane Feb 23, 2013 12:17 PM

Was happy to see that Healthy Spirits had a healthy expansion, taking on a new location on Clement near 11th. The new spot is larger than the Divis/15th location, which had led to nice upgrades: much larger assortment of liquors, liqueurs and bitters; about 1/3 more refrigerator space, with a more expansive selection of ciders--I've already tried and disliked Crispin and Tieton (both too sweet) and am curious about West County and the three Normandie brands they carry. I was excited to see the entire Mikkeller yeast line-up 2.0 (they made 6 beers from the same malt, hops & recipe, but used a different yeast in each one). Good homework in advance of the Mikkeller bar opening.

Same selection of Middle Eastern dips & spreads made by the owners mom (I like the red pepper/eggplant one), ice creams and a few packaged goods.

    Great news! Any idea if they have "mystery boxes" of random beers like at their original location?

      By mystery box, do you mean their monthly subscription series? Not sure--I subscribe at the original location, so didn't inquire at HSmark2.

        I don't think so. A friend was telling me about it. She said she's seen it vary from $30 to $45.

          Hm, not sure then. The subscription series is a "mystery box" in a way, but a little more expensive (about $50 per month). You get a mixed box of booze, sometimes with a theme, and always with exceptionally well written PDF tasting notes from the beer manager. It's one of my favorite gifts to give beer lovers in SF.
