The team behind Seven Stills, the local distillery and brewery operation with locations in the Bayview, Mission Bay, Nob Hill, and the Outer Sunset, is opening a fifth location in the Mission, in the brewpub space recently vacated by Almanac Beer Co.
As Eater reports, this is all happening as soon as next week, with Seven Stills loading its kegs over to 2704 24th Street with its innovative and unusual beers, and installing some Adirondack chairs and fire pits on the back patio.
The new location will only serve Seven Stills' beer (and perhaps its hard agua frescas), not its spirits, kind of like its Hard Frescos location in the Sunset. And thus far it's unclear what the food offerings may be, though the 24th Street location does offer a full bar.
There also won't be an beer brewed on site at the new location, according to The Chronicle, with most of that going on in the Bayview, and at Seven Stills' massive new 18,000-square-foot flagship on Hooper Street in Mission Bay, near the forthcoming Chase Center.
As the Chron notes, that Mission Bay location has the capacity to turn Seven Stills into the city's largest craft distillery, though they haven't reached that point yet. At the moment, that title still belongs to nearby gin house, Distillery No. 209.
In addition to its taprooms and production facilities, last year Seven Stills took over the operation of the bar at the Stanford Court Hotel on Nob Hill.
Seven Stills specializes in spirits made from craft beer byproducts, and beers like their Slo Flo Pils, Gimlet Kettle Sour, and 5 Pounds Hazy IPA, as well as many more found exclusively on tap.
