San Francisco's Five Best Restaurants for Beer Geeks
Yes, you can order beer by the boot at Suppenküche, but it's a destination for German beer lovers as well as guzzlers. There are more than a dozen on tap, an ever-changing rotation -- from basic pilsners to bocks and rare hefeweizens, not to mention SFoodie favorite Köstritzer Schwarzbier -- and the Octoberfest selection of seasonal beers brings in geeks from all over the Bay Area. Suppenküche has always been as much about the food as the beer, though, with light, clean fare that shows its Californian influences. And no one looks askance at you if you accompany your Saturday-morning Nürnberger bratwurst with a half-liter of beer. Except your partner, of course.
