Let’s go out! Social Kitchen and Brewery
How many times have you said to yourself, “Here I am in the Inner Sunset and all I want to do is sit at a super long bar and drink delicious, unique, independently brewed beer. Preferably with the option of ordering a plate ordering a plate of soft pretzels.”? I know! Too many times to count! Well, fear not. Where you once could drink Eldos’ beer, and then you could drink that other brewery that no one remembers’ beer, you can now drink Social Kitchen’s beer, brewed by none other than Rich Higgins. Fantastic.
Not to be missed are the Brewmaster’s Dinners: a once a month four course tasting menu paired with hefty portions of the house beers. I attended the one in early November and it was delightful (and a lot of drinking for a Wednesday night!). The menu was Italian themed, and along with our salad, two kinds of homemade pasta and sausage, and tiramisu we had the Old Time Alt, the L’Enfant Terrible (a dark Belgian and my favorite), the Simon Saison (ha! also, delish!) and Beetlejuice, a dark Belgian brewed with beets. I prefer to get my vegetables and vitamins through beer.
All in all, an excellent way to spend $40 and get your week’s worth of calories.
Social Kitchen and Brewery is located at 1326 9th Avenue, San Francisco California.
