The 37th Annual Barrel Tasting

dm-image-ph Give in to barrel fever at next weekend's tasting. One of three major events that make up the Wine Road, Northern Sonoma County, the barrel tasting allows you to sample "futures," (aka wines before they're bottled and due for release), talk to winemakers and experience the Dry Creek, Alexander and Russian River Valleys. Oh, and you can preorder super-limited releases not otherwise available. The Barrel Tasting occurs over two weekends, with advanced tickets available for one or two-day excursions. Advanced ticket sales end March 2 (with higher prices at the tour), so plan accordingly. Wine Road Barrel Tasting, March 6 to 8 and 13 to 15, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; locations and prices vary

Opening of the Week

Sunset Reservoir Brewing Company

There's a new brewpub in the town, and we're guessing we'll quickly become regulars. The Sunset Reservoir Brewing Company opened its doors last Thursday, headed by Hilary Passman Cherniss of the beloved Devil's Teeth Baking Company. There are five house beers available, courtesy of Aaron Weshnak, who cut his teeth at the Russian River Brewing Company in Santa Rosa. Food offerings come from Gavin Braid (Mikkeller, Quince) and include beer-friendly fare like a meat and cheese board ($24), beer-braised pork with Sriracha spaetzle ($26), pan-seared McFarland Springs trout with bubble and squeak ($27), and grilled flatbreads ($11 to $14). Lunch and brunch are forthcoming, and there's a kids' menu for the beer-loving parents out there. Sunset Reservoir Brewing Company, 1735 Noriega St.; 415-571-8452

Get Out

Meat your match next Thursday and Friday, at Belcampo Meat Co., where chef Dirk Tolsma will be cooking a five-course prix fixe feast with chefs Zakary Pelaccio and Kevin Pomplun (of Fish & Game in Hudson, New York). This will be the first of Belcampo's Guest Chef Dinner Series and will showcase seasonal meat and produce. Tickets and reservations ($120 a person, plus $40 for wine pairings) are available here. 3/5 and 3/6; 1998 Polk St.; 415-660-5573

The Pour

The Alembic is kicking off a Girl Scout Cookie-centric cocktail series. There are four cocktails ($13; each includes two cookies), inspired by (and meant to pair with) a specific Girl Scout Cookie—like the Girl from Ipanema, a blend of cachaça, dry sherry, dark brown sugar syrup and lime, which nicely complements a coconutty, caramel-rich Samoa. The cocktails will be available two at a time, rotating weekly, for three to four weeks. 1725 Haight St.; 415-666-0822

Food Crush

Plan on taking a long lunch this week at trendy Japanese restaurant Ozumo: The waterfront spot is now serving ramen at lunchtime only, featuring multiple kinds of slow-cooked, homemade broth and fresh Sun Noodles. Sample creamy tonkatsu with bourbon-glazed pork belly, pork and seafood broth with salmon and head-on Hawaiian shrimp, and our favorite, a spicy miso chicken broth with a marinated egg. 161 Steuart St.; 415-882-1333
