Cocktail Menu: Third Rail in San Francisco

From the folks at Range restaurant comes Third Rail, located in the Dogpatch area of San Francisco.  The bar is scheduled to open in early December.

"The thriving and revitalized Dogpatch area of San Francisco welcomes Range restaurant’s newest family member — Third Rail this December. The principals consist of Jeff Lyon, former bar manager at Range, and Phil West, Range’s owner and chef.  Third Rail will focus on category-driven craft cocktails, local beers both on draught and in the bottle, and regional wines on tap.  The design/build team from Paxton Gate has remodeled the former Retox Lounge space into a classic, comfortable urban neighborhood bar with mid-century touches and art deco motifs inspired by “old” and “new world” train stations." 

I got hold of the cocktail menu. I see: sherry, armagnac, and vermouth.

It's not in "Seasonal" but the "Ol 55" looks like a fantastic fall drink. Presumably that's a rich (as opposed to dry) Oloroso.
