Friday, December 15
Speakeasy Brewery, San Francisco
3 PM, Ages: 21+
On December 15th, almost exactly 9 months since it was abruptly closed, The Tap Room at Speakeasy Ales & Lagers will once again open its doors – no password required.
The remodel is complete, the permits have been signed off, and they can’t wait to open their doors. With a brand new glycol draft system with 17 tap handles, reimagined lighting, copper tables, and a brand new Crowler Station, the tap room has never looked better.
Come join them on Friday, December 15th as they open at 3 pm. Have a pint with them and then take home a freshly filled Crowler from one of our tap room only beers, including Holdout Stout, Speakeasy Dark Lager, Speakeasy Saison, Bourbon Session Stout, Big Daddy’s Humidor as well as their flagship beers. Plus B&J’s Backyard BBQ will be selling food from 5-9pm on opening day.
But stay tuned, this is just the beginning. Speakeasy officially celebrates its return with a Grand Opening event at the brewery on Saturday, January 27, 2018.
