About Almanac Beer Co.

Founded in 2010 by Jesse Friedman and Damian Fagan, the San Francisco-based Almanac Beer Co. is known best for its Farm-to-Barrel Wild Ales including the Farmers Reserve series, which are produced using locally-sourced fruits from partnering farms throughout Northern California and then rested in oak barrels.
