ThirstyBear joined Amy on a rainy day that provided a special, misty setting for an adventure. In addition to examining yarrow and mugwort, Amy prepared a couple of different cold teas from the nursery's yerba buena plants. These were a treat for everyone there as they provided a great way to taste ways these plants can impart flavor into a beer. This walk was also one of the last times to see healthy plums on the trail, as the plums began to dry up at the end of July.
Through this walking series, the Sutro Stewards guided seven San Francisco area breweries, in addition to the Sirwisa Brewing Collective. There will be a tapping event in early October to showcase these San Francisco inspired beers, and we have a few other special announcements to make too. Stay tuned for the updates!
The summer hike series was free and open to the public, thanks to grant support from SHARP for educational tours. We would also love to give a huge thank you to Amy for leading all of the walks!
