Local Brewing Co

Since I was staying in the SoMa neighborhood of San Francisco, I decided to go for a walk to checkout a few places, including Black Hammer Brewing, 21st Amendment Brewing and here, Local Brewing Co. The beer was pretty good and the space was large and amazing.

Additional Thoughts

This Brewery seems like it’s an adjustment from the what the neighborhood has been like lately. There is a HUGE indoor sports center across the street, and I heard that it’s been sold recently. Inevitably, the city block that the sports center comprises will most likely become street level retail with condos or apartments above. This brewery is placed in perhaps the best location for such a development. Though I’m sure that some in the neighborhood are not happy about this, such is progress…
