We spent last saturday at the 2013 World Cup of Beer Awards celebration over at Linden Street Brewery in Oakland. The annual homebrew competition is hosted by Bay Area Mashers and this year took in over 600 submissions.

Earlier in the year we had submitted seven different beers for judging against some pretty impressive competition and we’re pretty pleased with the results. ¬†We took home a 2nd place award in the spiced beer category with our New Mexican Green Chile Pilsner and we received 1st place in the dark lager category with our Schwarzbier!

It was a great day for us and we had a great time hanging out with so many other talented homebrewers and friends. Cheers!

Let There (Hopefully) Be Great Beer

After watching from the sidelines, we’re throwing our hats in the ring and are starting a brewery! After 7 years of home brewing, we are going to start a community brewery with a focus on teaching San Franciscans about great beer.

The goal is have a small 3 or 7 bbl production brewery in the mission district of San Francisco. Open to the public two days a week for tastings and growler fills, we hope to provide a direct educational channel between beer fans and the art of making interesting beers.

Here are some of our fellow breweries who provide us inspiration.

Expect more details about our plans in the coming months…
