After announcing plans to indefinitely cease brewing, packaging and taproom operations on March 10, San Francisco’s Speakeasy Ales & Lagers has once again resumed production, according to an update posted to the company’s website and social media accounts. A court-ordered receiver — identified by a source familiar with Speakeasy’s financial situation as Jigsaw Advisors — was appointed to run the failing brewery on March 13 after the company neglected to make payments to Union Bank, its primary creditor, and other vendors.
