Meet the Brewer: Olfactory Brewing


Join us on Thursday, 11/30 from 4-7pm for the next installment in our Meet the Brewer series, this time around with Phil Emerson, co-founder and brewmaster of one of San Francisco’s newest breweries, Olfactory Brewing and Blending. Olfactory brews an outstanding array of hoppy ales and decocted lagers at its Dogpatch brewery, many of which feature Admiral malt, and we’ll have a great selection of those beers on tap and available in cans for this event.

We’ll also be tapping a cask of a special collaboration beer Phil brewed with Admiral’s Dave McLean. Pearly Baker’s Best Bitter is an homage to Dave’s beer of the same name brewed at Magnolia many years ago. This new version is 100% Admiral on the malt side (Felblume, Pacific Victor, Gallagher’s Best, and Maiden Voyage), bittered with Styrian Goldings in the boil, and dry hopped with aromatic Southern Cross and Rakau.

But wait, there’s more: have a pint of Pearly Baker and keep the special, commemorative glass! Pearly’s been true…
