As if SF Beer Week isn’t enough, there are two new places serving locally made brews. Open in the Outer Sunset is Woods Beer Co.’s fifth location, ~OUTBOUND~, a 750-square-foot space they’re calling the club car (with an outdoor patio that will open in the spring). On tap: they are pouring six to eight rotating taps of Woods Beer and hosting a 20-gallon brewing system onsite, plus a Crowler machine to package fresh beer to go. You can nab some delicious El Porteño empanadas if you need a bite. They are planning a variety of events, so follow along for updates. Open Mon-Wed 4pm-10pm, Thu 4pm-12am, Fri 3pm-12am, Sat 11am-12am, Sun 11am-10pm. 4045 Judah St. at 46th Ave.
Opening this week in Civic Center is ~FERMENTATION LAB~, a gastropub offering craft beers, fermented foods, and pub fare. Hoodline mentions the project is from Jeannie Kim of Sam’s Diner, who brought on the Beer Chef Bruce Paton (look for some unique and rare California beers, thanks to his many relationships with the brewer community). On the menu: pickled vegetables, deviled eggs, burgers, salads, and sandwiches. Open Tue-Sun 4pm-12am. 1230 Market St. at Grove, 415-626-1592.
