Two beer-loving friends collided with fate back in 2012, and 47 Hills Brewing Company was born. Co-founders John Tucci and Drew Barrington pooled their resources that year in order to commandeer a 25-barrel brewing system from a defunct brewery in San Francisco. They had known each other for more than a decade as fellow musicians and felt the craft beer business was where they belonged together. With John’s long history as a professional brewer, and Drew’s wide-ranging knowledge of the construction industry, it was a match made in beer nirvana. An enormous warehouse in South San Francisco proved the ideal location to open up their brewery, a place to make massive amounts of beer – and for people to sample that beer in a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
