To enter to win tickets for you and two friends:
Send your answers to the following three questions to email@example.com.
1) Who is considered to be the first legal brewer in San Francisco?
2) How did early San Franciscan brewers cool their fermenting beer without refrigeration?
3) What is San Francisco’s oldest operating brewery and what is San Francisco’s oldest operating brewpub? Three lucky beer lovers will win admission to the 5/20 screening plus a tasting flight for winners and two friends.
Along with the Gold Rush in 1849, a San Francisco indigenous yeast strain “California Common” was developed as German immigrant brewers brought their cherished lager yeast strains to sell beer to the massed gold diggers. Without the Bavarian Alps close by for the typically cool fermentation of lagers, brewers had to improvise and ferment in the higher San Francisco temperatures. The result: lagers with the complexity of an ale.
