SF Beer Week 2013 at Suppenküche and Biergarten, Feb. 8th-17thclick image for gallery


It’s February. So, once again it’s time for Beer Week in San Francisco (Feb. 8th- 17th). For the forth year in a row Suppeküche and now Biergarten have partnered with world-class Bavarian Weisses Bräuhaus G. Schneider & Sohn

Suppeküche will host a Schneider Bier inspired menu on Wednesday the 13th of February. Each food item will be paired with an offering from the Schneider range of wheat beers. An amazing special treat at Suppenküche the night of the 13th is a chance to taste Schneider’s ultra-super-rare (only 120 bottles total in the U.S.) red wine barrel aged Aventinus Eisbock: Eisbock Barrique, 12%ABV! Also on offer is the only slightly less rare: Mein Cuvee Barrique, 9.5%ABV (a red wine barrel aged blend of Aventinus and Aventinus Eisbock), as well as the unique Schneider Weizenbock: Nelson Sauvin, 7.3%ABV.

Biergarten will have (for the first time on draft) Schneider’s Doppelbock Weisse Bier: Aventinus, 8.2%ABV, avaliable during SF Beer Week. A special beer in- spired menu item will also make the scene: Aventinus brined and glazed Prather Ranch beef short rib sliders! Yes.

Biergarten Burger


Every Wednesday at the Biergarten we are serving 1/2 pound (Prather Ranch) 100% Grass Fed Beef Hamburgers. Each week will showcase a different burger configuration on an organic bun, baked fresh daily by Firebrand Artisan Breads.
