Our namesake means a lot to us.
Since 2008, we've been building our company and our community out of the San Francisco Panhandle neighborhood. Established by Ben Youngerman, Panhandle Productions was first run out of a studio on Golden Gate Avenue and is now headquartered in our Divisadero Street office. While we now work regularly with national clients, we take great pride in putting our energy into neighborhood projects and below is a collection of highlights over the years.

in 2011, The Matching Half (McAllister St @ Baker) featured Ben Youngerman's photo show "Golden." We had an amazing opening night party and are thrilled by the feedback we continue to recieve. All the photos in the show were captured around the Panhandle/NOPA neighborhood and represent the mix of character found between Divisadero & Masonic streets.

One of the main initiatives of the NOPA Neighborhood Association is to keep the Panhandle looking beautiful and to engage neighbors in community events. NOPNA has worked very hard to improve the condition of the Panhandle and to raise money and energy for ongoing initiatives. One very popular group is the Panhandle Park Stewards who meet every second saturday as a work party. Panhandle Productions volunteered with NOPNA to create a video that highlights the work of the park stewards and recruits new members.

A large two story building near the corner of Fulton and Masonic has sat vacant for years. About 10 years in fact. Over that time, residents in the area have long desired for something to bring new life and character to the neighborhood. When word got out in 2013 that Barrel Head BrewHouse would be opening in the space, excitement spread quickly. Very quickly.

Now, as Panhandle neighborhood residents eagerly await the Brewhouse's opening, there is growing curiosity as to what the space will be like. This video offers a few hints at the people, food, drink, and community that will shape Barrel Head BrewHouse.

Our second video for Barrel Head BrewHouse features chef Tim Tattan (formerly of Monk's Kettle) and the future menu.
