Apr 24, 2015 , Fort Point Brewing Company, Matt Colling

4:30-7:30 

No reservations necessary 

 

Please join us in the wine bar, Friday, April 24th any time between 4:30-7:30pm, when we welcome Eric McDonald of Fort Point Beer Company. Eric is the Bay Area Sales Representative and will present a flight of their delicious San Francisco brews.

 

Fort Point is a locally grown brewery in the beautiful Presidio of San Francisco. It was founded in 2014 by brothers, Justin and Tyler Catalana, who entered the beer world with their Mill Valley Beerworks business. That Marin County success encouraged them to expand their beer production and build a fuller scale brewery where they could continue their small craft brewing with a little more room to breathe. So they crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and landed in the Presidio, naming the brewery after historic Fort Point. “Being situated in this iconic landscape reinforces our pride in San Francisco and in the beer we brew. It sets the framework for high quality, well-made, thoughtful beers. The Presidio is a thoughtful place.” They brought Mike Schnebeck with them from Mill Valley Beerworks and promoted him to be Fort Point’s Head Brewer where he executes the Catalana brothers’ philosophy of brewing as the “confluence of creative expression and refined technique.”

 

Fort Point currently brews six main beers, along with different seasonal brews, ranging from light to hoppy to bold. We have proudly served many of these on tap since the beginning and are thrilled to be able to showcase another San Francisco original craft beer company. Since Fort Point doesn’t yet bottle their beers, they will only be available for tasting in the flight and not for retail sale.

 

 The cost of the flight will be $12 for a four ounce pour and will include the following:

 

Fort Point KSA Kolsch – 4.6% ABV

Not for retail sale – Bar Price: $4.50

 

Fort Point Westfalia Rotbier – 5.6% ABV

Not for retail sale -  Bar Price: $4.50
