The San Francisco brewing scene has got a new player.
Cellarmaker Brewing will be a 10 barrel brewery, featuring 12 taps and is based out of SOMA, in a former garage at 1150 Howard. They will have an "ever changing" lineup of beers, but expect to see a lot of IPAs.
The grand opening is slated for October 12th, and will feature four taps to start: a Stonefruit Petite Sour, Batch #1 Porter, an American pale ale called Questionable Origins #1, and a Hop Slangin’ IPA.
For more information, check out the SF Brewers Guild website here.
In other news, Goose Island, the famed Chicago brewery, is "migrating west," which includes coming to San Francisco.
I had the chance to interview Goose Island founder, John Hall, yesterday so look for a more in depth peek into GI in a subsequent article.
For now, though, you may want to check out Goose Island at a couple tap takeovers which will feature reps, and possibly some rare beers.
