Screen grab from 7X7SF

Sac Brew Bike featured in San Francisco’s 7x7 magazine

Published: Tuesday, May. 20, 2014 - 2:27 pm

It’s official: San Francisco knows too much. Every tiny taqueria in the Mission District has long been scouted out by food-thrill seekers, pop-up restaurants can’t be kept a secret for more than a few minutes and all the top pho joints have been uncovered by Yelpers from Walnut Creek and city-dwelling tech workers alike.

So what’s a hungry San Franciscan to do when in search of new food and drink? Head to Sacramento.

Less than a week after San Francisco’s 7x7 magazine noted Sacramento as a culinary destination for farm-to-fork restaurants, this insider’s guide to the best of the Bay Area comes back with this feature on the Sac Brew Bike.

As noted in this early May interview with Sacto‘s own Cowtown Eats blog, this eco-friendly 15-passenger bike is something like a pub crawl with pedals. Music bumps from speakers while passengers head from brewery to brewery. The owners are UC Davis alumni who launched this centipede-like bike for tours on May 16.

Along with the love from 7x7, the SF Weekly and San Francisco Chronicle have recently shouted out Sacramento’s cocktail scene, and the SF Chronicle also ran an extensive piece about Sacramento’s thriving local food scene in January of 2013.

Thanks for stopping by, San Francisco! Feel free to stay a while and look around some more.
