In sixteen years, Speakeasy Ales and Lagers has become a fixture in the Bay Area's beer scene. The company's logo, a pair of glaring eyes, brings us back to times of underground Prohibition-era pubs replete with sliding peepholes for scrutinizing potential guests. Today, those ubiquitous eyes peer out from countless neon signs, tap handles, and patchwork punk rock jackets throughout San Francisco and beyond. Drinking Speakeasy beer is akin to being in a city-wide cult, and pretty much everybody enjoys the Kool-Aid.
