We have events regularly here at D&H and the Backroom Brewery Event was by far one of our most successful. We were packed to the gills with regular clients, jewelry designers and beer enthusiasts. Everyone had a good time catching up with old friends and making new ones.

Our goal is to foster a feeling of community. We want people to feel good about keeping their dollars local. Most of the jewelry artists we feature are local to the Northern California/Bay area. Our bar, The Rose Cut Wine Bar, has become a great place for social networking. Our clients have the opportunity to meet one another and the artists who create their jewelry.

Our venue was perfect for Julia Claggett, the brewer of Backroom Brewery, to debut her “Haight St. Hefeweizen”. She and her partner, Christene Banda, currently brew out of their apartment in the Mission district. Judging by the impressive flavor of their beer and the reaction from the crowd that night, they are going places. A client couple of ours enlisted them that night to brew a signature beer for their wedding.

We also gave Audrey Thompson, a local real estate agent for Coldwell Banker, the opportunity to sponsor the event. It was fantastic networking for her and she provided hors d’oeuvres for us.

Combining her love of beer and science, Julia Claggett initially started brewing as a way to pass time while obtaining her PhD in yeast biology.  After moving to San Francisco last March, she switched her focus to brewing full time.  Along with her partner, she created the Backroom Brewery in the small backroom of their Mission apartment. The only thing she enjoys more than making beer is teaching the process to others; so if you’d like to learn or just fill up an empty growler, please join us!
