had a perfect friday lunch, on a sunny sf day, at recently opened southern pacific brewing in the mission. the space is beautiful, huge, and manages to find the perfect balance of cold steel and concrete, and warm wood and greenery. there’s tons of natural light, outdoor seating, brewing on-site, a full bar, and food all day. making me even more stoked on the place is the fact that an old friend happens to be the owner. my burger with pickled veggies and garlic-sage fries hit the spot, as did the house brewed helles lager. i’m already looking forward to going back and sending everyone i know.
new to hayes valley’s proxy project is the long anticipated biergarten by the folks at suppenkuche, a great spot for a rotating selection of german beer and snacks. and its worth mentioning its san francisco’s only actual outdoor biergarten, and a nice addition to the limited outdoor drinking scene.
finally checked it out on what was likely to be one of the last hot afternoons of the year and it really felt like being in europe. had a light lager, refreshing radish salad, potato salad, and a really incredible and perfectly flavor balanced pickle..
