San Francisco is home to more than thirty craft breweries, and the San Francisco Brewer’s Guild is making it easy to sample some of their locally made products.
The free Drink SF Beer shuttle, which runs the third Wednesday of the month in different neighborhoods throughout the city, returns to Bayview September 20. Riders can get on and off at stops as they please.
This go round, the shuttle will visit Ferment.Drink.Repeat, Barebottle Brewing Co., Laughing Monk Brewing Co., and Seven Stills Brewery & Distillery. The shuttle runs in a loop from 6:30-10:30 p.m. and stops every five-to-ten minutes at each brewery.
Here’s a little more about each stop.
Ferment.Drink.Repeat.: The night will kick off at 6 p.m. at Ferment.Drink.Repeat (2636 San Bruno Ave.) with Meet the Brewers night. This 21-year-old brewery, which was founded by Army veterans Kevin and Shae Inglin, focuses on excellent customer service and “innovative, exciting, top-quality handcrafted products.”
Barebottle Brewing Co.: This brewery at 1525 Cortland Ave. finds inspiration for new beers throughout the Bay Area and asks the public to vote on select groups of pilot beers. This method, the brewers believe, has resulted in some “amazing beers.”
Laughing Monk Brewing Co.: Focusing on an innovative blend of California and Belgium brewing traditions, Laughing Monk Brewery (1439A Egbert Ave.) uses local, seasonal ingredients to craft a growing array of unique beers.
Seven Stills Brewery & Distillery: Founders Tim Obert and Clint Potter serve both craft beer and whiskey made from their craft beer, which results in a variety of unusual flavors. Customers rave about Seven Stills’s products, which recently included “saison dolores” and “blueberry dogpatch sour” whiskeys. The brewery is at 1439C Egbert Ave.
The Drink SF Beer shuttle is a great way to get to know neighborhood breweries, enjoy a night out, and taste some of the most interesting and innovative beers in San Francisco.
