DETOUR: San, Francisco, CA – Fort Point

DETOUR No. 019: San Francisco's Presidio is as historic as it is expansive. Located in the shadows of the Golden Gate Bridge and Fort Point sits a quickly growing brewing operation: Fort Point Beer Co. We paid a visit to their production facility and then to their Ferry Building taproom.

DETOUR No. 018: San Francisco's Magnolia Gastropub & Brewery. The legendary brewpub sits in the heart of the fabled Haight Ashbury neighborhood and has been cranking out English-inspired ales for two decades–all in one of the coziest brewspace setups around. Oh, and the food is fantastic.

The Almanac Beer Company was founded in 2010, focusing on their unique 'farm-to-barrel' brewing approach. Their method involves 'selecting the best in locally sourced fruit and blending it into beers inspired by the great brewing traditions of the world.'  Recently, this Northern Californian brewery began a lineup of cans, to celebrate their four flagship beers. To implement these new designs, ABC hired Los Angeles based design firm, DKNG Studios.
