Beer is For Sharing

Black Sands is a brewery designed and constructed by homebrewers. Our brewery is built on the philosophy that beer is for sharing. Not just the final product, but the entire process of making it. You can watch us make beer, taste it fresh right out of our fermenters, see the recipe, and leave with everything to make it yourself. Our space is designed and planned so that everything is transparent, from beer to recipes to food. Our kitchen, like our brewery, is completely open. You can sit right up to our open kitchen and watch your meal being made. We serve California inspired dishes that pair perfectly with our house made beer. 


Teaching You Beer

As a brewery and homebrew supply store we are focused on beer and education. Beer is getting complicated these days, and we want to work to demystify it. We give away the recipes to every beer that we make at Black Sands. If you want to know whats in it or why it tastes or smells a certain way, we will literally hand you the recipe. You can take that recipe to our homebrew supply store and get all the ingredients and equipment to make our recipes at home yourself. We teach brewing classes to aspiring homebrewers and anyone who wants to get into the hobby of homebrewing. Our head brewer Cole Emde teaches group classes right out of our brewery.


Visit Us

Black Sands is located at 701 Haight Street. We are the corner building where Haight and Pierce street meet. Located directly on the famous bike route “the wiggle” we are a bike friendly, centrally located spot. Coffee and breakfast on the way to work, beer and dinner on the way home. We have two entrances, one on the corner of Haight and Pierce (look for the skull tile art) and the other on Pierce street. We also have a large garage door on pierce that opens up to our brewery that you may see open while we are brewing beer, or teaching a class.
