  • 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.

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

We are not currently hosting any large groups for special reservations or organizing any private events at our taprooms for the foreseeable future.

You are still more than welcome to bring your group to one of our taprooms during our open hours if you'd like to visit.

Yes! Both are welcome.

We are following the below precautions for outdoor dining.

  • Guests are limited to 8 guests per party, up to 10 if from the same household.
  • Tables and chairs are sanitized immediately after guests leave and before new guests are seated.
  • Our team wears masks at all times and works with heightened alertness of sanitation standards.

Yes, we do!

At our Lower Haight taproom we offer new stainless steel Fort Point growlers for purchase, available with or without a fill of beer.

For refills, due to the pandemic, our current growler fill policy is to only do refills for growlers with a swing top to ensure the safety and health of our team and patrons at our taprooms.

We also offering customers the ability to purchase a brand new growler filled with 64 ounces of beer for delivery through Fort Point Direct.

Once the beer is first placed in a vacuum-sealed growler, it is good for up to 5 days. After you break the initial seal and the cap is opened, beer is best if consumed within 24 hours.

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
