History and production

Speakeasy was founded in 1997 by Steve Bruce and Forest Gray. cite news|publisher=Bay Crossings|url=http://www.baycrossings.com/news_archive_view_next.asp?id=1701&mon=12&yea=2006|accessdate=2007-08-02| title=Speakeasy Ales & Lagers: The Eyes Have It | Author=Joel Williams|date=December, 2006]

Speakeasy brands its beers with humorous reference to 1930s prohibition-era mobsters and organized crime. Prohibition is one of the more popular local beers in San Francisco, available in approximately 200 bars and restaurants and 1,000 stores in the San Francisco Bay Area, although bottled beer is available regionally in California, eleven other states and British Columbia as well. Its beers are flavorful and high in alcohol, ranging from approximately 5% to 10% alcohol content by volume. Unlike many others, it does not operate on-site sales, restaurants, or other retail operations except tours by appointment on Fridays, as well as a Friday happy hour that is open to the public. .
