Begin the Begin
This day has been a long time in the making. When Nico and I opened our small brewpub in San Francisco on 2nd Street, just two blocks from the SF Giants park, 15 years ago, we never thought that today we would be opening a fairly impressive production brewery with a tasting room here in San Leandro. The journey to this space and time has been long and hard that’s required the effort of many people from our 21A family and others to make this dream a reality.
We have been distributing our beer since 2008 when we brewed just 1,000 barrels at our partner brewery in Cold Spring, Minnesota with just two beers, Hell or High Watermelon Wheat and Brew Free! or Die IPA. The dream has always been to bring the beer back home to the Bay Area and that’s what we have done.
Our new San Leandro brewery gives us an opportunity to create new beers and really flex our creative wings. Both Nico and I got into brewing for the creative endeavor to make interesting beers that craft beer drinkers can enjoy and that certainly will be the case here at our new facility.
The first beers out of San Leandro will be exciting new releases, and we’ll also be experimenting with our San Leandro neighbors, Drakes Brewery and Cleophus Quealy, to produce some really inventive collaboration beers. We’re excited to make San Leandro a craft beer Mecca and destination.
Our tasting room is finally open, giving you an opportunity to come in and try our great beers in this new facility. We’ll be giving tours every hour as well. To start we’ll be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon to 9pm. Rotating food trucks will be ready to serve you delicious dishes perfect for beer pairings.
See you here and thanks for your support.
