Strange Green Beer

Monday 9th May (1960)

...
Subsequently, the whole party returned to the University for dinner, and I arrived back in San Francisco quite late. Nevertheless, this was to be the only time available to visit the famous North Beach and to see the beatniks in residence there. The colony appeared much the same as one can find in London or Paris, and the beatniks are certainly harmless. I hope the same can be said of the coffee-and-mead and the strange green beer that I consumed in their various haunts.
