Beakers, tubing, and propane tanks, oh my! In their SOMA workplace, the guys from Pacific Brewing Laboratories are harnessing the power of science for the good of San Francisco revelers. Open to the public twice per month, the brewery resembles a speakeasy run by a high school chemistry teacher. Along with other nanobreweries in S.F., this operation embodies the DIY spirit — a craft brewing farm league that embraces grassroots homebrewing culture. Mad scientists Bryan Hermannsson and Patrick M. Horn share the fruits of their labor with locals who are welcome to subsidize the brewing habit via donation. With the likes of Squid Ink Black IPA and Hibiscus Saison, these brewers make beers for every palate. Pacific Brewing Laboratories changed its name from Clara Street Brewing Company when their aspirations outgrew the confinement of a single street — and we think they're going places. First SOMA, then the world.
