Cellarmaker Brewing (San Francsico)

New brewery that opened about a month ago in SOMA on Howard between 7th and 8th. I learned from a server that the brewer was a former assistant brewer at Marin.

At long last, some properly made San Diego style beers are available here. I didn't realize how much I'd missed them.

According to their website they'll be releasing a number of barrel-aged beers over time, but for now the offerings have been mostly pretty standard stuff, with the exception of two really nice Berliner weisse-style sours and a somewhat similar Belgian style I'd not heard of before called grisette.

All the beers I've sampled there have ranged from good to excellent.

If you're in the SF area I recommend heading down there to sample. Current favorite for me right now is a pale ale called Questionable Origins that is made with fresh hops. The Dobis Pale Ale and the IPA are also really good. They all have the lighter bodied, floral hop character typically seen in a lot of San Diego IPAs.
