    4oz pours?, (and I see the beers they are so pick your wedgies and settle down). The bar manager needs to be flogged for that. All the 8oz pours are a bit out of hand too.

    Agreed. By the time I rub a little beer behind my ears, 4 oz is gone. And please post the name of the pub/brewery/house that you're posting the tap list from. Maybe I want to go there if I'm in that town!
    Noogie...Noogie...Noogie.

    The 4oz pours are for Drake's Black Label and Russian River Pliny the Younger. Both are extremely limited quantity beers that usually sell out on the same day they're tapped (they're only made in February.) Keeping the pours small means more people get to try it...plus they're both 11%+ ABV. Even buying those beers at the brewery will get you 8-10 oz pours.

    Similarly, the 8oz pours are high ABV and/or limited quantities. Same concept there.

    It's Harry's Hofbrau. Check out the one in Redwood City, San Leandro or San Jose. Good homestyle German food too.

    I know the logic, but still don't make it easy to live with. Yeah, yeah, supply and demand and all, but $6 for 4oz. of beer? I guess, but it still speaks to what I consider to be my major pet peeve of craft brewing/pubing. Too much exclusivity in the business. I know this is an old, dead horse for me to be beating, jt. I just can't stop myself. Good thing there is a lot of great beer to drink at most any pricepoint.

    Well said Slow Danger. I think Stone's Enjoy By is our savior - easy to procure when it's out (I recently had a keg of it), released fairly regularly, not crazy expensive, and just about as good as Pliny the Elder - I may even enjoy it more when you consider the satisfaction of not having to beg to be worthy enough to get some.
