Partner Spotlight: Eat, Drink and be Local—The TRU Story

7x7 Partner Spotlight

When the Trumer Brauerei Berkeley opened its doors in 2004, we worked hard to perfectly preserve the brewing process of our 400-year-old sister brewery in Salzburg, Austria.

We've successfully combined the heritage and tradition of our European roots with the excellence and passion of American craft brewing. So now you can enjoy a TRU European Pilsner imported fresh from Berkeley.

Brewed in your own backyard for your next backyard BBQ.

Well-balanced with a distinct hoppiness and crisp dry finish, Trumer Pils is a perfect pairing for a summer BBQ, dinner party or Sunday afternoon at the park. Pick up a 6-pack today and bring a local home.

A Guide to Open Studios

October in San Francisco features the sundress weather we never got in July, a subsequently confusing profusion of pumpkins, and local artists opening their studios to the public in every neighborhood we have, including some you might not know existed. (Mount Davidson, anyone?) There’s so much excellent art to see in so many neighborhoods that not even the most savvy googling can unearth everything - so we recommend you go where the whim strikes you to see local art at its origin. Here are the artists and neighborhoods that strike us.

First Bite: A Tale of Three Sandwiches

This week, a good proportion on my meals have been between two slices of bread. The sandwich is a satisfying creation, equally suited to breakfast, lunch and dinner and co-opted by nearly every culture in the world.

Brother Size at the Magic

Octavio Solis could be called the Midas of local theater - anything he touches turns to gold. It could in turn be argued that Tarell Alvin McCraney, the gifted playwright behind Brothers Size, doesn’t need any help. But judging from audience and critical response (across the board raves) - it certainly doesn’t hurt.

Look of the Week: Art Walk

You've always dreamed of traveling the world with friends, picking up artwork along the way. Unfortunately, paying rent, eating and your job have stood in the way.

Well, it's time to get a taste of la dolce vita during the SF Art Commission's Passport.

Hamlet on Alcatraz

For the ultimate in theater/venue mashups, you can’t do better than Hamlet on Alcatraz. After nearly two years spent juggling logistics (and dodging pesky birds), 29-year-old director Ava Roy is using the entirety of the infamous prison island to create a memorable rendition of Shakespeare’s tormented Dane.

Transported: Biking for Newbies

Welcome to "Transported," our new weekly series about getting places in San Francisco, whether you take the bus or the BART, bike or drive. Come here to find the skinny on secret parking spots, the new bike lanes and how to get across town on Muni without losing your mind.

So, you've finally caved, ditched Muni for good and gotten yourself a bicycle. You want to learn to bike the city without getting killed, right? First tip: Wear a helmet. Here are some more to get you started.

Easy bike routes to practice your skills:

The world-famous Wiggle is a gradually-climbing route that zig zags through the city and has long been used (on foot and on horseback) as an easy way to navigate San Francisco. It starts at the Ferry Building and takes you through major neighborhoods like downtown, the Castro, Panhandle, the Haight and Golden Gate Park. Use Market Street's new green bike lanes until you hit the Castro and Lower Haight. You'll be on Fell Street, a high speed, one-way road, for only one block before you hit the Panhandle, which will take you to Golden Gate Park. Once you're in the park, relax and enjoy the scenery.

WhiskyWeek Is Upon Us: Where to Imbibe

Thursday is the new Friday. At 1 pm, Jimmy Russell, master distiller at Wild Turkey, will be discussing his life, signing bottles, and educating whiskey devotees on the virtues of Wild Turkey at John Walker & Company on Sutter Street (where all Wild Turkey products will also be 15% off during the event).
