Shaun O’Sullivan, 21st Amendment Brewery

October 25, 2009 // by soundbites

This week, I talked (and drank) beer with Shaun O’Sullivan of San Francisco’s 21st Amendment Brewery. If you don’t know about Shaun, he’s been making great beers for years in the Bay Area (check out his official bio here), and has recently put his efforts into transforming the reputation of canned beer by releasing some of his best brews in cans.

Shaun talks about how a childhood spent partly in Europe opened his mind to new tastes at an early age, discusses the beer career epiphany that took him from an LA law firm to the mid-90s craft beer scene in San Francisco, how his friends at legendary SF beer bar Toronado only carried his Watermelon Wheat beer one time (after he funked it up with some Belgian yeast), the ecological and practical advantages of canning craft beer, and what the future holds for 21st Amendment.
