Last night I found myself in Shotwell's Bar enjoying the finer aspects of life (such as getting drunk and eating MSG-filled snack mix), when I happened upon this
new beverage that's new to me. Not only is it organic and naturally caffinated (to the tune of one cup of coffee), the brew is owned by a Mission resident whom lives just a few blocks away from the bar (foodies, rejoice!). Top the whole package off with 7% alcohol, a $4 per pint sticker price, and the fact I felt like a well caffinated disaster after a few, I have to conclude we have a worthy successor to the Sparks/Four Loko legacy.
My only complaint is that it didn't taste like Sweet Tarts and actually tasted like real bar. The bartender offered to dump some sangria in my pint to alleviate my concerns, but I thought better. However, I encourage everyone to make that mistake and report back.
