Pier 15 Embarcadero at Green St, San Francisco, California 94111
Join us at Pairings to experience our new Exploratorium x Fort Point Beer Company brew—crafted to inspire your scientific palate. Inspired by a collaboration between Fort Point, SeaGlass Restaurant, and the Hoppenheimers—a brewing club of Exploratorium employees—Living Lager is bright, crisp, and clean, and alive with unpasteurized yeast.
Drink in the science behind the beer with Fort Point’s co-founder Justin Catalana and head brewer Mike Schnebeck, and explore home-brewing how-tos with the Hoppenheimers. See and smell its key ingredients, and enjoy a sample of Living Lager followed by clams cooked in beer served with a side of bread.
Exclusive to the Exploratorium, Living Lager will be available for purchase throughout the evening on the Fisher Bay Observatory Terrace.
Justin Catalana is Co-Founder and CEO of Fort Point Beer Company in San Francisco. His interest in beer and fermentation began in college, where he studied bioengineering at the University of California San Diego, and worked as a yeast microbiologist studying epigenetics.
Mike Schnebeck is Head Brewer at Fort Point Beer Company. He’s overseen production since the brewery opened in 2014 and has helped lead the company to considerable year-over-year growth. Schnebeck’s team has won multiple awards for their beers, including a silver medal at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival and gold medals at the California State Fair.
The Hoppenheimers began brewing at Pier 15 in 2014. Named for Exploratorium founder Frank Oppenheimer—who famously fostered invention and play—this dedicated group of museum staff makes beer with the same sense of inquiry and adventure that inspires their daily work.
