Pucker up

High Water Brewing Le Petit Diablotin, Oakhaus

Illustration by Maria Ratinova

It’s only just opened, but Oakhaus has quickly become my go-to spot for an afternoon beer, what with its rustic-chic vibe and huge beer list. Many of its brews are German, of course, but I’ve gravitated to the Le Petit Diablotin ($9). Produced by the San Leandro-based High Water Brewing, this deep orange beer is aged in wine barrels with sour cherry and pomegranate juice. The fruity undertones, however, are subtle. This is a mouth-puckering, vinegary ale that’s tart and refreshing on a hot summer day. 3413 Broadway, www.oakhaussac.com.
