For immediate release:
Healthy Spirits San Francisco and Oakland's Ale Industries hatched the plan. Four Barrel, Philz, and Sweet Maria's coffee kept the soldiers alert. Buffalo Trace, Four Roses, and Colorado Gold distilleries supplied the artillery. Their movements were top secret, or so they thought.
Caught in an ambush it was too late when they found out:
San Francisco's ultimate beer, whiskey, and hummus purveyor teams up with the troops at Ale Industries for another exclusive barrel aged ale. SOMEONE TALKED! is a hyper-limited (fewer than 60 total cases) series of coffee-kissed imperial stouts aged in Healthy Spirits collection of world class bourbon barrels. Three distinct bottlings are available NOW at both Healthy Spirits locations (and draught at select SF Beer Week events).
1) WHITE or SILVER capped SOMEONE TALKED! went through a year of boot camp in a Buffalo Trace barrel with a Four Barrel Coffee addition.
2) RED capped SOMEONE TALKED! did a year-long tour in our Colorado Gold barrel with a touch of Ale Industries' house-roasted beans from Sweet Maria's Coffee.
3) YELLOW capped SOMEONE TALKED! counted 365 days in the brig with a Four Roses barrel with some Philz Coffee.
Any of the three offerings are available now in 22 oz. bottles for $18.99

Almanac sours nice up the shelves! A favorite has been restocked in the Bourbon Sour Porter, and THREE NEW SELECTIONS just in time to celebrate SF Beer Week!
Sourdough Wild Ale 375ml $12.99
Brewed with a mash of raw and malted barley, oats, rye, spelt and lemon, this beer was fermented in used wine barrels with a blend of Brettanomyces wild yeasts and Marla Bakery’s San Francisco sourdough yeast. The finished beer is dry-hopped with tropical Mosaic hops. This unfiltered ale is alive in the bottle: drink fresh for a bright, passionfruit aroma or age to develop the wild yeast funk.
Brandy Barrel Peche 375ml $12.99
Historically, fruit-infused sour beers were a way of preserving the summer harvest. In that tradition, this blonde ale was added to brandy barrels with high-summer peaches, hand-picked by the Loewen family at Blossom Bluff Orchards in Reedley, California. We aged this liquid gold for six months until we needed a reminder that summer will come again. Pair with Prosciutto, crusty bread and fruit preserves.
Valley of the Heart's Delight 375ml $12.99
This sour ale is inspired by the agricultural history of the Santa Clara Valley. Long before it became Silicon Valley, it was known as the Valley of The Heart’s Delight, a fertile basin overflowing with fruit orchards. Brewed with foraged apricots, loquats and cherries handpicked by the Garden To Table non-profit, this collaborative beer celebrates and supports their mission to promote urban farming in San Jose.

SF Beer Week approaches, a week dedicated to all things brewed. Capping this sudsy celebration is Toronado's Barleywine festival, an event unlike any beer gathering in the world. More than fifty taps are dedicated to the most revered, misunderstood, misrepresented, and missing-keys/wallet/friends/mind, beer styles. The concentrated nectar of grains and hops; Barleywine.
In 2008, Firestone Walker sucabA (then Abacus) took home the judges' Honorable Mention. The following year, a bronze medal. And in 2010 a silver medal. Though they never took first, this streak is proof that Firestone Walker sucabA is among the finest oak-aged beers in the world, and for a limited time, BOTH HEALTHY SPIRITS LOCATIONS have some.
22oz bottle in a handsome display box will set you back $17.99 plus tax and CRV. Two (2) bottles per person per diem limit, please, and phone reservations for club members only.
