~THE BEER HALL~, a project from husband-and-wife team Andrew and Jennifer Hall, has opened softly in the Argenta complex at 1 Polk. There is a beer tasting bar, with a variety of craft brews from more than 15 taps and more by the bottle, and then a retail operation that sells unusual beers to take home. Look for offerings from Ommegang, Stone, Magnolia, and Bear Republic, to name a few. There are also a few wines on tap, if beer isn’t your style.
Gi Paoletti was the architect for the space, which seats 39, including 12 seats at the bar. The modern tavern vibe should appeal to the after-work crowd (read: folks who work at Twitter, which is right there). There will be some small bites too. For this week, it’s open Mon-Fri 6pm-10pm, but hours should expand soon. 1 Polk St. at Fell, 415-800-7416.
