In a historic military building that once housed an Army motor pool, Fort Point Beer Company takes inspiration from its setting to produce three staple brews: The KSA Kölsch-style ale, Westfalia Nuremberg red ale and Park hoppy wheat. Brothers and cofounders Tyler and Justin Catalana, along with head brewer Mike Schnebeck, have grown the brand from hyperlocal to a major player in California by producing approachable quality beers with lower alcohol by volume (ABV) that pair equally well with an upscale meal or a football game. Sticking to a self-distribution model, the brewery opened a kiosk in the Ferry Building Marketplace in 2015 with growlers to-go, a tasting bar and a small beer garden. The expansion plan continues into 2018 with a large Mission District brewpub in the factory space occupied by bag company Timbuk2. The new brewpub will offer bar bites like sausages and specialty beers brewed on-site and offered only in the Mission.
