Quality is extremely important to us, please reach out so we can make it right! If possible, include the following information about the beer in question so we can pass it along to our Quality Team:

  • Beer style
  • Package style (six-pack or twelve-pack)
  • Purchase location
  • Time and date stamp on the bottom of the can
  • Batch number on the bottom of the can (the four digits following the pound sign)

The date inked on the bottom of our beer cans, and stickered on our six-packs and twelve-packs, is the date the beer was packaged.

We recommend consuming your Fort Point within these timeframes for maximum freshness.

  • Within 90 days from package date: Animal, Villager, Dipper, Cool
  • Within 120 days from package date: KSA, Park Series, Westfalia, Sfizio, Strawberry Darling
  • Within 180 days from package date: Export

We don’t run any industry standard testing for gluten levels so we can’t make any claims about how high or low gluten levels are in our beers. However, we do use an enzyme to control haze levels in a few of our beers that indirectly lowers gluten content.

The beers that occasionally use this enzyme are Cool, Dipper, Sfizio, Animal, Park, and Villager.

If you have a Fort Point gift card, lucky you! That gift card can be redeemed at any of our taprooms. Gift cards can also be used for Fort Point Direct, our online store. If you’re having trouble using your gift card online, please email us at shop@fortpointbeer.com with the gift card number, your name, email, and balance on card (if you know it).

All of our taprooms are first-come, first-serve, and do not take reservations.

Yes! Both are welcome.

We are following the below precautions for outdoor dining.

  • Guests are limited to 6 guests per party, up to 10 if from the same household.
  • Guests are required to order a meal to purchase alcohol.
  • Tables and chairs are sanitized immediately after guests leave and before new guests are seated.
  • Guests are instructed to keep masks on in between eating and drinking.
  • Our team wears masks at all times and works with heightened alertness of sanitation standards.
  • At all of our locations, we have a glass or plexiglass barrier in place at our ordering window between our team and guests.

Unfortunately, the Fort Point brewery is a production facility only and closed to the public. We’re located on federal land which makes it a bit tricky to host people or open a bar (trust us, we know you guys want it and that it would be awesome! 😉 Maybe one day.).

Not at this time!

We’re always looking for great people to join our team! Check out our open positions at fortpointbeer.com/jobs.
