We ❤ San Francisco
Black Hammer was founded in San Francisco on the principles of balance, precision and creativity in beer making, while steadfastly promoting inclusivity and radical self-expression.
Black Hammer's brewing team has been crafting fine lagers, incredible ales and award-winning hard seltzers with love in San Francisco, California since 2015.

Indoor Sausage Garden and Beer Hall
Our restuarant in the Castro neighborhood, Willkommen, is San Francisco's premier indoor sausage garden and beer hall. Now offering delivery within 30 minutes of fresh beer and German comfort food, but you should probably stop by. Fresh sausage is the best sausage.
What people say about Us
If extraterrestrials were to descend on Earth and wanted to know what a craft brewery looked like, Black Hammer would be a perfect exemplar.
The San Francisco Chronicle
It's a very welcoming space that has great energy. Not to mention their beers are amazing!
Great vibe, free wifi, outlets everywhere and nice interior design. Oh, and the beer... I love the Nautilus.
This is my favorite craft brewing beer spot in the entire city. Really love the vibe and ambiance.
More than beer. It's science and love.
Black Hammer Brewing focuses on superbly balanced lagers, ales and hard seltzers at our brewery in San Francisco, California. We are considered the only Burner Brewery in existence today, and our name comes from the nickname of our co-founder, Jim "Hammer" Furman, semi-portmanteaued with the name of Burning Man's iconic Black Rock City. Our quest is to promote radical inclusivity as well as radical self-expression, through our brewery & beer, our staff, locations, guests and events, and to ensure that you feel as welcome and appreciated as you truly are.
