Truly Bavarian Biergarten
Hayes Valley

The guys behind Suppenküche did not rest on their laurels when they opened their Hayes Valley biergarten (that's "beer garden" for you non-German drinkers). There's good reason why the imported Regensburg tables are packed on sunny days: with six rotating German imports on tap, served up in steins by the liter and half-liter, and Bavarian treats galore, it's as close to perfect as outdoor drinking gets in San Francisco. And now the addition of a weekly Wednesday burger night is icing on the German chocolate cake.

"The beer is stellar, the ambiance festive, but the food leaves something to be desired."

"Get in line 20 minutes before opening, save a table and have a friend get straight in line."

Now, Biergarten brings burgers alongside beer and brats on Wednesdays. For $12, you can sink your teeth into a 100 percent grass-fed, half-pound Prather Ranch patty with toppings that vary weekly. Some recent combinations have included caper aioli, bacon, caramelized onions, house-made pickles, and little gem lettuce, as well as feta aioli, caramelized fennel, and pickled shallots.

Say guten Tag to traditional biergarten fare: pretzel knot sandwiches, potato or beet salad, and beer-poached bratwurst. Six brews on tap (they’ll rotate regularly), plus a bottled option (potential specialties not available at Suppenküche), create a veritable wunderland of German drinking choices.
