Headlands Brewing Co. Launches with a Beer Dinner at Southpaw BBQ

Posted By on Mon, Jul 8, 2013 at 3:50 PM

Personally, we're of the "more local beer, the better" mentality. We won't be satiated until every neighborhood has a brewpub, you can meet your neighbors for a pint on every corner, and the streets run golden with tasty, fizzy elixir. Until that glorious day, we'll be happy to see more and more industry vets and ambitious homebrewers striking out in new directions. In the last year we've seen many craft beer players trying on new projects. Whether it's Pete Slosberg (of Pete's Wicked Ales) working on a new line of session beers or Bruery alums working on an all-sour project, more diversity in our local brewing scene is always welcome.

The newest addition to the Bay Area craft brewing scene is Headlands Brewing Co., based right here in San Francisco. The company is a collaboration between Patrick Horn (previously of Pacific Brewing Laboratory) and Phil Cutti, head brewer at Southpaw BBQ. Named after the Headlands of Marin County, the operation aims to dial-in traditional beer styles while also dabbling in experimental beer production. Their starting lineup consists of Hill 88 IPA, Pt. Bonita West Coast Lager, and Group G Belgian RyePA. Horn and Cutti and both fans of outdoor activity and local exploration, and hope to tie that interest into their line of beers.

"Beer is a social and cultural thing, and part of our objective is to bring that concept to life by connecting people and maybe even playing a part in their new adventures," says Cutti. Tomorrow (July 9), you'll have your first chance to personally connect with the Headlands team with a beer dinner launch at Southpaw. Also, mark your calendars for their tap takeover on July 14 at the SOMA Streat Food Truck Park (428 11th St.) from noon to 4 p.m. The details for tomorrow's introductory dinner, below:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
