If you’ve ever needed proof that all you need to open an authentic Bavarian beer garden are two old shipping containers on a 2,000 sq. ft. concrete lot, then this is the place to look to. Here you’ll find the finest brews on tap, German pretzels, and long beer benches packed with rosy-cheeked beer drinkers chinking their tankards. All keeping with the Bavarian mantra of conviviality imported by Fabrizio Weist to the heart of Hayes Valley. His restaurant “Mutter”—a soup kitchen of sorts—is also worth a visit and is just around the corner.
