Hannah with Greenbar Distillery

  • Local Cellar 2801 22nd Street San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

Come join Hannah as she pours a delicious swath of what Greenbar Distillery has to offer! While American small-batch distilleries today are having a major moment (rapid expansion in the once-stagnant industry has brought the number from fewer than 60 just 10 years ago to more than 600 today), most of these new operations are going back to stand-alone basics: good old-fashioned moonshines, 18th-century bourbons and traditional dry gins meant to be consumed spirit-first or, at the very least, plugged into a classic spirit-forward recipe that has survived generations without much alteration. In an era when most distillers and mixologists are intently focused on re-creating and showcasing the booze of our pre-Prohibition forefathers, Greenbar has for the last decade been doing exactly the opposite. From vodkas infused with celery, dill, fennel and other savory ingredients, to liqueurs fermented with white wine yeast and then infused with plants found on a hike through Griffith Park, to a whiskey aged on five more kinds of wood than any other whiskey that's ever been made before, Greenbar not only represents the inevitable post-modern response to the spirit industry's throwback obsession — it's pioneered it.

Tasting is free and available anytime from 5:00 - 7:00.  Must be at least 21 years old.
