Looking for some west coast assistance. Anyone out there?

  • My wife and I are currently planning a trip to San Francisco from March 13 - 20, 2009. We have planned very little but we're obviously interested in great food and quality beer. For those of you who don't know, my wife works in a test kitchen for a food magazine so it's important that we plan the vacation around food as well as beer. I don't want to vacation with a hungry wife! I've been down that road a time or two and it's not pretty. No worries though, she loves beer too so it shouldn't be an issue.


    So far, we know we'll be hitting up Anchor and Speakeasy Ales & Lagers for breweries. We're also heading up to Napa for a night or two and eating at French Laundry, one of the best restaurants in America. So, if you have any recommendations, bring 'em on! We're looking for breweries, brew pubs, bars for beer people, quality restaurants for breakfeast, lunch and dinner and anything else you can throw at us. If you haven't been to San Fran, but know someone who recently has, please pass this post along! Or, if you know someone who lives there, even better! We would love to experience San Fran as the local beer and food people do. I think we'll fit right in!
