Speakeasy Celebrates 14 years of Great Beer this Saturday

This Saturday, the brew crew down at the Speakeasy Ales & Lagers invites you to celebrate their 14th anniversary and try out their latest creation, Butchertown Black Ale!

In honor of the new beer, Speakeasy is throwing a Butchertown Hoedown. The FREE Hoedown is where you will want to get down. I’m not sure what that really means – the last time I went to a Hoedown, I was in first grade doing a Square Dance performance amidst bails of hay. This event is all ages, but somehow I think this will be a bit more adult friendly and fun. On Saturday, August 27th from 12-7 pm, the Prohibition-themed microbrewery will become an outdoor block party with live bands, the best food trucks, local sponsors, and most importantly – kegs upon kegs of cold beer.

Speakeasy Ales & Lagers is a microbrewery in San Francisco founded in 1997. If you’re a fan of their infamous beers Prohibition Ale and Big Daddy IPA, you are sure to like the new Butchertown Black Ale. Come hang out at the Hoedown and check out their awesome location this weekend. Giddy up in there!

Heidi Smith - The Ultimate Scavenger

Originally from San Diego, Heidi migrated north to study journalism at SFSU and interned for the SF Bay Guardian writing music stuff. She later embarked on a study-abroad program in both Denmark and Holland, and basically never came home. For six long years, she froze her ass off in Oslo, Norway, pretending to be a viking princess, trying to figure out how to survive in the most expensive city in the world. The other two years were spent frolicking on the beach in Spain - sipping on sangria in between being tossed around Europe working as a stressed-out journalist. Heidi currently works at for a non-profit cultural exchange program, helping others experience life from a different perspective. She is thrilled to be back in SF, magnetizing the obscure, and scavenging the city for fun, free things to do.
