The latest San Francisco brewery and tasting room is up and brewing — and now softly open for business a few blocks from Civic Center BART Station.
Cellarmaker Brewery, which promises to someday offer barrel-aged bottled beers worthy of laying down in your cellar, has got four beers available right now: A fresh wet hop Mosaic pale ale, a chocolatey porter, a refreshing lightly kettle-soured Petit Sour, and a tasty IPA with Nelson Sauvin, Galaxy, Simcoe and Columbus hops. We previewed most of the beers before they were carbonated and thoroughly enjoyed each one of them.
Cellarmaker’s Grand Opening will be Saturday, October 12, from noon on. An additional beer, Peach Nightmare, will debut, along with cask preparations including Batch #1 Porter on Kenyan Kaiguri coffee beans from a nearby roastery, and the Sour, sitting on fresh raspberries.
It’s been fun seeing this place evolve, and taking some pictures along the way.
We’re happy to welcome Cellarmaker to our BARTing and walking guide.
The tasting room is about a block away from City Beer Store, making this one of the most interesting two-stop mini-pub-crawls in town. Cheers to new beer, and to Connor and Tim!
