Located in San Francisco’s little known Butchertown District, Speakeasy was founded in 1997. They started by delivering hand-filled kegs from the back of a van and now boast more than 30 distributors across the west coast and many metropolitan markets. Originally, Speakeasy embodied the perseverance of Noble Experiment era brewers with a single hoppy amber ale called Prohibition Ale. Today, alongside their timeless classic Big Daddy IPA, they brew a wide array of beers from sessionable pales to bourbon barrel-aged stouts. We’d love to tell you what they’re bringing to beer week, but they wouldn’t give us the password.
