Elizabeth Street Brewery Named “Best Secret Spot” in the Bay Area

All, As most of you know by now, yesterday the ESB was featured on NBC Bay Area as “Best Secret Spot” in the Bay Area. It was pretty funny to have TV cameras in the pub for a second time in the past 5 years… as I’ve been telling my wife since the spot aired […]
