SFGATE has launched a beer newsletter! Called the Taploid, it will contain some key stories from this column, as well as other, more nationally-spanning industry news. To sign up, head here, enter your email at the top, and check the box marked “Taploid.”

San Francisco Beer Week continues with the second half of its hundreds of events. Find your next stop here at the event’s official website.

Oakland’s Temescal Brewing has released a quirky little beer they’ve dubbed La Fizz. Sort of a beery take on a LaCroix water, the 3.8 percent, super light and highly attenuated ale utilizes the zest of grapefruits from Berkeley Bowl, and will be sold at their taproom and at a handful of retailers — at least, unless they receive a cease and desist before then.


Last year, National Geographic visited Santa Rosa and did a short profile of Fogbelt Brewing. They’ve just released the video, meant to promote tourism to the region:

Back in 2017 Nat Geo stopped by the taproom to film a Meet the Makers short. It was to be used to promoted California tourism. It is finally starting to be aired and we wanted to share it with you!

Black Hammer in San Francisco’s SoMa district has started canning! First up is their amazingly-titled Sparkle Pony Belgian blonde, which are now on sale at the brewery for $5 each.

The World of Beer, a chain of taprooms, is coming to the Bay Area with an ambitious plan to open numerous new locations. First up: Dublin.

In state news, Stone Brewing in Escondido is suing MillerCoors for calling their Keystone beer “Stone.” The suit, filed Monday, alleges that Keystone’s rebrand makes it too closely resemble a Stone beer. “”MillerCoors tried to register our name years ago and was rejected,” said Dominic Engels, chief executive of Stone Brewing in a statement. “Now its marketing team is making 30-pack boxes stacked high with nothing but the word ‘Stone’ visible. Same for Keystone’s social media, which almost uniformly has dropped the ‘Key.’ We will not stand for this kind of overtly and aggressively deceptive advertising.”
