Meet Phil. Speakeasy Ale & Lager's new Head Brewer.

San Francisco, Calif. – Thursday, October 4, 2018Hunters Point Brewery and Speakeasy Ales & Lagers announce today Phil Cutti – current president of the San Francisco Brewers Guild and Founder of Headlands Brewing Company – joins their brewing team as the new Head Brewer. Former Director of Brewing Operations Clay Jordan leaves the company as his family welcomes a new baby. Phil Cutti is available for interviews upon request.

Following the brewery’s October 1 launch of the Hunters Point Fresh Series and its inaugural release Admiral Haze, Speakeasy Ales & Lagers releases a brand new draft-only beer, Fest Bier. Basking in the terroir of the West Coast and inspired by Bavaria, Fest Bier is brewed with 100% Admiral malts and Yakima Valley-sourced Spalter Hops. Exemplifying the exceptional barley hailing from local California farmers that’s floor-malted by Admiral Maltings, Fest Bier is a malt-driven pale lager with a light noble hop character. Fest Bier will be available on draft across San Francisco beginning this week with special cask and nitro versions available only at Speakeasy’s taproom in Hunters Point.

On Thursday, October 11, Ron Silberstein (Co-Founder, Admiral Maltings) and Phil Cutti (Hunters Point Brewery/Speakeasy Ales & Lagers) along with BrewTV host a discussion focusing on the importance of quality malt and how it has shaped Speakeasy’s latest beer releases.
