The Gift That Gives...Well, a Good Hangover at Least

Having trouble finding a gift for that beer lover who has everything? Yeah, I guess you could go to Cost Plus and buy one of those "Beers of the World" gift pack for your geeky friend or family member, but...they will hate it. Just speaking the truth. The thought may be what counts, but knowing that the gift recipient is thinking, "Man, more beer I don't want" should be enough to dissuade you. How about giving this early Christmas treat instead: a spot at O'Niell's Nob Hill Stone Beer Dinner on Monday, December 16 at 6 pm. You'll be treating that beer lover to a five course meal that includes fanciness like "leek garnish" and "honey balsamic reduction". And that's just the stuff that goes on top of the dishes. Garlic cream shrimp and pomegranate BBQ pulled pork are just a couple of the highlights of the menu. The real highlight, of course, comes in the beers selected for the dinner: Vertical Epic 12.12.12, Red Wine Barrel Aged Double Bastard, Arrogant Bastard aged in Templeton Rye Whiskey barrels, Crime (that Lucky Basartd with chile peppers...little sips.), and the new Smoked Porter with Vanilla Bean. $65 gets you a lifetime of gratitude from your beer lover. Just make sure they have the 16th free or else you'll have to go yourself. Darn. To reserve spots, call 977-1836, email, or visit

Looks good, but too expensive. I thought $50 at Farina Alto was too much, but it did sell out, so maybe I'm just did it go from $35 at most places to $50 and $65 so quickly?
