Rachel’s Ginger Beer is now available in these ridiculously appealing 32-ounce growlettes. Whether you use it to make cocktails or drink it straight is up to you. Photo courtesy of Rachel Marshall.

On Tuesday May 1, San Francisco drink-slinger Brooke Arthur will be stepping behind the bar with resident barman Erik Carlson. Arthur currently manages the bar at Wing Ho General Store, a newer spot from Asian food and cocktail master Charles Phan (also the owner of the Slanted Door). The duo will be mixing it up from 7 until midnight, and Arthur will create a special cocktail menu to serve up alongside Carlson’s impressive concoctions.

Moe Bar
The Capitol Hill venue (which is opening a brand-new space, by the way) is screening Coachella today through Sunday. While set times vary, the streams will generally start at 3pm. Concidentally (or not), so does happy hour, which runs till 7. Well drinks and microbrews are $3, domestic beer is $2, and the cover charge is $0.

Rachel’s Ginger Beer
Is it possible for a growler to be adorable? Apparently, hell yes. Local ginger beer doyenne Rachel Marshall (also co-owner of Montana bar) now offers her bracing drink in a 32-ounce “growlette” size, a quantity well-suited to two-person households. Find the growlettes at Montana, the soon-to-open ginger beer dispensary next door, and area farmers markets, where these vessels will replace the 12-ounce glass bottles. Marshall says these reusable containers are also more environmentally friendly. She will be on of many welcome attractions when the Broadway Farmers Market returns on Sunday.
