Bryan Hermansson and Richard Brewer-Hay, two SF-based beer brewers (no, really), talk about the state of home-brewing and beer culture in the Bay Area and beyond. Bryan is trained as a Bio Engineer, but has evolved into a beer brewer. He is located on Clara St. in “amazing San Francisco, CA,” and has been homebrewing for 4 years now. You can follow his blog to hear more about his brewing expansion and inspiration. Enjoy!
Since 2003, the residence of Alyson and Richard Brewer-Hay has been known to family and friends as The Elizabeth Street Brewery. Located in Noe Valley, the ESB is a home brewpub for the people, by the people. In February, Imperial Jack, a strong version of Richard’s ESB recipe (named after his Grandfather – “Grandpa Jack” and brewed with past Sound Bites guest Shaun O’Sullivan) will be available to 21st Amendment customers as part of Strong Beer Month.
