Brewer Jeremy Tooker of Four Barrel - Biography
San Francisco, CA
Portland-native Jeremy Tooker got his coffee feet wet working in some of the Pacific Northwest's premiere coffee houses. He then headed south, teamed up with Elieen Rinaldi, and helped open Ritual Coffee Roaster in 2005, once of San Francisco's first progressive coffee establishments. In 2008 he moved on to his own shop, Four Barrel Coffee, which has become an institution in the vibrant Mission District. Tooker has plans to open two new shops and an additional roasting space in 2013, including a Portola-based coffee house that will include solar panels, wind powers, and a focus on eco-energy.
