Twenty Tank Brewery
Last updated: December 5, 2000
316 Eleventh Street
San Francisco CA 94103
Opened September 7, 1990.
Closed May 1, 2000.
Brewer: Scott James.
2,000 bbl annual capacity.
Run by the Martin brothers from Triple Rock in Berkeley CA. 20 Tank is a good place to stop if you're going to a show at Slim's or the Paradise Lounge.
Directions: 20 Tank is "South of Market", on 11th Street between Folsom and Harrison.
Bad news: the local real estate was just too lucrative for San Francisco's techno-yuppies to pass up, the landlord tripled the brewery's rent, and this landmark pub closed in the summer of 2000.
My Opinion Of The Beers That I've Tried:
15.0 points overall
Style 7 - English Bitter
- 17 points - Beer #1-75, St.Mary's College Beer Festival, Moraga CA, June 13, 1993
Deep copper color and great head. Faint crystal malt aroma. The word "refreshing" comes to mind. Best 20 Tank I've had.
Kinnickinick Standard Ale
Style 4 - Mild / Brown Ale
- 16 points - Beer #1-74, St.Mary's College Beer Festival, Moraga CA, June 13, 1993
Deep yellow. Very thick head. Not amber. Fresh hop aroma. Nice and creamy. Full-bodied and well-balanced. This should be their Pale Ale.
Style 6 - American-style Pale Ale
- 12.5 points - Beer #1-73, St.Mary's College Beer Festival, Moraga CA, June 13, 1993
Very pale. Very tiny bubbles. A little musty from the hops. Thin. Malt first, hops last, poor balance.
