Don Barkley, New New Albion Beer, and the First SF Beer Week

Jay Brooks has posted photos of Don Barkley pouring/tasting the commemorative version of New Albion ale at San Francisco Beer Week.

I explored Don's connection with New Albion in chapter seven of Ambitious Brew, but here's a blog entry about his current venture, and another one from First Draft Follies about the brewpub in Mendocino, which is where he landed after the closing of New Albion.

Sidenote: I emailed Jack McAuliffe about this week's beer event, but have not heard back from him. Will update that end of the story as it happens.
