As of last week, the next member of the Proxy shipping container project in Hayes Valley has opened: ~BIERGARTEN~ from the Suppenküche crew. Like the name sounds like, it’s a beer garden, with numerous communal and very authentically German tables on a patio—all in all, there’s room for 100 beer-drinking folks.

The menu includes six draught beers, some bottled selections, wine, non-alcoholic selections like Bionade, and a variety of beer-friendly vittles, from bratwurst to pretzels to chive and lardo on brown bread, plus some sandwiches and a trio of salads (potato, beet, and kraut). And you can finish the night with a bottle shot of Underberg. Enjoy the Indian summer evenings while you can. Tue-Sun 3pm-9pm. 424 Octavia St. at Linden.
