A deep copper/red, single-hop pale ale with pronounced Maris Otter and caramelized malt character that offer balance to the assertive hop notes. The hops are 100% Cascade, the quintessential American variety, with multiple additions thought the kettle boil. The bright, citrus-like hops dominate the aroma with undertones of caramel malt. The unlikely malt/hop marriage continues in the taste with both grapefruit/citrus and candy/caramel sweetness, receding to a fairly dry, lingering finish. The name is an ode to the neighborhood pharmacy that occupied their Haight Street home until 1964. It's a versatile beer for pairing with food.
Food Pairing: It dovetails with the caramel/browning notes of anything grilled, roasted or braised while offering a palate reset for rich and fatty dishes
