Falling in love with craft beer in SF
Bartender Stellar Cassidy has made craft beer her specialty. You will not find a sign with Church Key’s name on it, but if you search enough North Beach storefronts, you may eventually stumble across the illuminated, old-fashioned key that subtly announces the presence of this cozy beer bar. Originally from Southern California and educated at the University of San Francisco, bartender Stellar Cassidy is no stranger to cool things that fly under the radar. Her work has appeared in numerous alt-lit magazines, she has published two books of poetry and her involvement in the local spoken-word scene has included hosting open-mic nights at Brainwash and performing street poetry at 16th and Mission streets.
