Every Friday morning, SFGATE finds the biggest headlines in local (and sometimes national) beer. Check back here weekly for news, events, and information about special releases from your favorite local breweries.

The day has almost arrived: Sante Adairius is on the brink of opening their long-awaited Santa Cruz taproom. The new space has a Facebook page, and its hours are listed as being open Tuesday through Sunday when it does eventually open. Co-founder Adair hopes that day will come sometime next week. Sante!

Temescal Brewing has filled the shoes left behind by outgoing head brewer and cat enthusiast Wade Benker-Ritchey. The new guy —Mike Makris — is, well, not new at all; he comes to the 1-year-old Oakland brewery from The Rare Barrel in Berkeley, where he worked as a cellar manager. As the post announcement reads, Makris is “excited to continue brewing the crisp pilsners, robust dark beers, and soft, balanced hoppy beers that our customers love—though he’s got a few new tricks up his sleeve, too.” Wade will indeed be missed locally, possible by none more than brewery co-founder Sam Gilbert. “Wade’s a unique soul and an incredibly talented brewer, and we’ll miss him dearly,” he told SFGATE. “He’s left quite a legacy, which Mike is excited to build on.” The crew is waving goodbye to Wade via this Wade Out IPA, “a liquid tribute to our departing brewer.”

Speaking of The Rare Barrel, there are lots of happenings underway out there in the East Bay. The sours producer is rolling out its Ambassadors of Sour club sign up a little differently this year; interested drinkers can visit the taproom in person to add their name to the list, between now and October 8. Then, on October 10, enrollment will be opened up to all, online. Additionally, the crew is beginning a new chapter as they deliver the O.G. rarest barrel — the storied pH1 — to Purpose Brewing and Cellars in Fort Collins, Colorado:
