Starting Monday July 5th, you’re going to have a great way to start your week at ~SOCIAL KITCHEN & BREWERY~ in the Inner Sunset. How great? Well, how about mimicking the way they do things in Köln and Düsseldorf, with a never-empty glass? That’s right: from 6pm-10pm, servers will be circulating throughout the room with trays of freshly-poured beers, serving you a nice cold one every time your glass is dangerously empty—so you never have to flag a server down again. SKB is going to be hosting this little recreation on their mezzanine (soon to become the mess-anine?), with Monday nights designated as Köln Nights, exclusively featuring Social Kölsch (4.8% ABV), and Tuesday nights will be Düsseldorf Nights, exclusively featuring Old Time Alt (4.5% ABV). Each glass of beer is $3, and will be tallied when you tap out. German appetizers (obaster cheese spread, sausages, pretzels, housemade mustard) will be offered, compliments of the house, from 6pm-7pm, and food may be ordered from the regular menu all evening. Meanwhile, if you want to partake in SKB’s other handcrafted beers, or prefer to order your beers one at a time, just stay put in the dining room. And for this launch week, brewmaster Rich Higgins will be on hand to answer any sudsy questions.

One more thing to note: the kitchen is now open until 11pm Sun-Thu, and until midnight Fri-Sat. Nice!

Pouring its first glasses of wine for the public tonight is ~INNER FOG~, a new corner wine bar in the Inner Sunset. I mentioned it back in November; it’s from John Nettesheim, who wanted to create a comfortable space where people could hang out and enjoy quality wines. He has 75 wines on the list, with 17 by the glass—look for an international selection of small production wines. There are 32 seats in all at the bar, tables, and in a few comfortable seating areas with couches. There are five kinds of cheese on the menu for now, and look for charcuterie, desserts, and other items to be added in time. Hours are Tue-Wed 2pm-10pm, Thu 2pm-11pm, Fri 2pm-12am, Sat 12pm-12am, and Sun 12pm-9pm. 555 Irving St. at 7th Ave., 415-682-4116.
