Magnolia's new brewery in the Dogpatch has been one of the city's most-anticipated projects since it was announced in 2010. In this video from BrewAge, owner-brewer Dave McLean discusses the need for the move, with plenty of intriguing footage of the new brewing equipment being set up in the space (with the help of a lot of instructive blue tape). Fun fact: In just one batch, McLean will be able to match the output he creates in one and a half weeks in the brewery's current home, Magnolia Haight's basement. The first beer from the new brewery, Maiden Voyage, appeared at the Haight location last week, and Magnolia's Dogpatch restaurant and bar, Smokestack, is expected in January.
