Hung up

Hangar One

In the pursuit of all things cocktail and interesting local food/drink. Lisa and Kerry found Hangar One and the St. George Distillery. After a good nom in the Ferry building, including a beautiful tasty latte from Blue Bottle Coffee, we boarded the ferry to Oakland with the monkies and seven of their friends.

The ferry exposed us to a side of the Bay Area that most don't see on a tour of San Francisco. The port of Oakland is quite impressive with several huge container ships and tons and tons of containers.

Once we got off the ferry, it was short walk over to the Hangar.

Yep Hangar One is in an old Hangar on the retired Alameda Air Base. The tasting room and the distillery is a really cool space with lots of character. We got to taste all of the different brandies, liquors, and liqueurs that they offer including some kickin' absinthe.

Kerry and Isaac's friends are as cool as Kerry and Isaac so you know we had a great time.
