Adding draught beers to Anthology’s bar is something that has been brewing for a while according to Anthology Beverage Manager Marc Canzoneri.

“We wanted to add to the Anthology experience by providing hand-picked premium beers,” Canozeri said “Chef Allison’s masterpieces are prepared using fresh, local ingredients, so we decided to do the same with our beers. Two of our selections come from two of California’s top microbreweries.”

Allison agrees.

“My home town of San Diego has become a beer Mecca and these beers are especially known for their food friendliness,” Allison said. “It will be like a great rhythm section backing up an instrumentalist during a hot solo.”

The beers making the cut are California natives Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA, and Anderson Valley Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout, and they will be joined by Anthology Michelob Amber Bock and Stella Artois,

• Bear Republic Racer 5 is a full-bodied American India Pale Ale from Healdsburg, Calif. that delivers a hoppy flavor and oily texture. This golden micro is brewed with American pale and crystal malts and hopped with varieties Chinook, Cascade, Columbus, and Centennial.

• Hailing from upstate in Boonville, Anderson Valley Brewing Company’s Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout is a complex, full-flavored dark brown-black beer to accompany the crispness of the season. This California award-winner introduces velvety smoothness and the sweet opulence of mocha juxtaposed with a slight hop bite.
