Rendering of Cellarmaker Brewing Company by Stephen MacMillan via Facebook.
A report from Dana Massey-Todd. As previously mentioned in tablehopper, there is a team getting ready to open ~CELLARMAKER BREWING COMPANY~ in SoMa. The project is from a pair of Bay Area beer veterans, Connor Casey (of Marin Brewing and City Beer Store, plus Fritz Winery and Press Club) and brewer Tim Sciascia (previously Marin Brewing, and Samuel Adams before that). As Grub Street reported back in February, they’re looking to open in late July. They’re planning to have 12 beers on tap, with a focus on unusual and “fun” beers. Look for a variety of hoppy beers, Belgian-style saisons, and aged stouts. They’re big fans of barrel-aged beers and sours, so there will probably be lots of those choices, along with local and seasonal fruit beers. These guys are gluttons for variety, so they want to have new beers rotating through their taps every three to four weeks.
The space has 25-foot ceilings, which will hold the many barrels they’ll be using for their aged beers. They’ve got some renderings on their Facebook page that show a spare, industrial space with exposed brick and metal seating. While they won’t be offering food, they’re hoping to get a rotating group of food trucks on board to come by. Beers will be available in small pours, pints, and in growlers to go. They’re hoping to have construction complete in August so that they can start brewing and open around Labor Day, but that could change. 1150 Howard St. at 7th St.
