Philosophy

Tradition & Innovation

Fort Point Beer Company is a New American brewery - the product of a thriving American craft beer culture, shaped by deeply San Franciscan values: quality craftsmanship and a spirit of innovation. We create balanced, thoughtful beers that reference traditional styles but are by no means bound to them. For us, brewing is the confluence of creative expression and refined technique. We want our beers to tell a story, inspire an idea, and be thoroughly enjoyable.

Fort Point Beer Company was founded in 2014 by brothers Tyler and Justin Catalana in the Presidio of San Francisco. The brewery resides in an historic Presidio building that was formerly used as an Army motor pool. Being situated in this iconic landscape reinforces our pride in San Francisco and in the beer we brew. Head Brewer Mike Schnebeck has developed a deft and impassioned brewing style over the past years at Mill Valley Beerworks and leads the pioneering spirit of our beers.
