Our neighborhood craft brewers are justifiably proud of their product – and they’re making it really easy to come by for a visit.
The San Francisco Brewers Guild is sponsoring the free Drink SF Beer Shuttle as a feature of its monthly Meet the Brewers Nights, and it’s coming to Bayview April 19.
The popularity of craft breweries shows no signs of slowing down, and the Bayview Beer Bus will show us what’s going on in the neighborhood. Four breweries are in the lineup, each with its distinctive approach to making unique beers.
Meet the Brewers Night begins at Laughing Monk Brewing Co. at 1439A Egbert Ave. The free hop-on-hop-off shuttle arrives at 6:30 p.m. ready to carry riders to Seven Stills Brewery & Distillery (next door to Laughing Monk), then to Ferment. Drink. Repeat., and finally to Barebottle Brewing Co.
The shuttle stops every 5 or 10 minutes, so hitching a ride is no problem. The event continues until 10:30 p.m., so there’s plenty of time to sample at every stop on the list.
A bit more on each stop:
- Laughing Monk Brewing uses local, seasonal ingredients, employing brewing traditions of California and Belgium. Innovation and independence are watchwords.
- Seven Stills offers an unusual twist in that it not only brews craft beers but distills whiskeys from the beers. Visitors get to sample whiskeys along with the beers they were distilled from.
- The folks at Drink. Repeat. pride themselves in creating a comfortable, community atmosphere offering quality beer to be enjoyed by connoisseurs and the uninitiated alike. And they’re happy to answer any questions.
- Barebottle Brewing is based on the premise that homebrewers make some of the best and most innovative beers, an insight that inspired the creation of Barebottle.
The Bayview Beer Bus is a great way to see what’s going on among neighborhood brewers, to have some fun and learn a thing or two along the way. The Brewers Guild website offers more insight into San Francisco’s beer tradition and how today’s generation of brewers is upholding it.
