San Francisco Beer spots, via The Beer Project

Here's a list of great spots to find locally brewed beer in San Francisco (and some neighboring spots a little further away). Some of our recent favorites include the super-micro brew going on at Cellarmaker (what's the term? craft beer? artisan beer? whatever, it's good stuff), and the usual high quality brews flowing at 21st Amendment.

San Francisco Beer Week Opening

New IPA on Tap
Dec 26, @ Cellarmaker Brewing Co.
New Beer comes out on December 26th – “Jagged Little Pale Ale” – An aggressively hopped borderline IPA at 6.3%. Loaded with piney American hops: Chinook, Centennial, and Simcoe in the boil as well as the dry hop and a dash of Galaxy and Summit in dry hop for added fruit + dank. This will be the least fruity hoppy beer we have made yet; it’s more of a classic American pine bomb. Cheers and Happy Holidays from Cellarmaker.

New Pale Ale, Questionable Origins #2 on Tap
Friday Dec 1, @ Cellarmaker Brewing Co.
We just put a new Pale Ale on tap and it’s drinking mighty fine. ”Questionable Origins #2″ features heavy doses of Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand. The beer itself gives off huge aromas of gooseberry and tropical fruit. We threw in some Centennial and Sterling hops for added floral, spice, and citrus notes.
Taco Hands IPA is here!
Friday Dec 1, @ Cellarmaker Brewing Co.
This Taco Tuesday, December 3rd is the release of our first collaboration beer… Taco Hands IPA! The details on this beer are listed below. It tastes fantastic out of the fermenter and we’re really proud of it. You weren’t afraid of the dank… don’t be afraid of this beer either....The base recipe is an IPA with a significant portion of corn in the form of flaked maize and taco shells. It is spiced with cumin, corriander, black pepper, sea salt, pasilla chiles, cilantro and the zest and juice of 140 limes. For hops we chose Citra and New Zealand Motueka to complement the floral, spicy, citrusy aspects of the beer.
