If the now porta-potty free Zeitgeist still doesn't suit your needs in germanic al fresco drinking and dining, popular kraut joint Suppenküche will be bringing their completely outdoor operation Biergarten to the Proxy project in Hayes Valley just in time for the Indian Summer. According to Suppenküche owner Aaron Hulme, the sister spot to the restaurant at Hayes and Laguna will be "like a full-service restaurant with the roof ripped off." Which just sounds delightful.
As EaterSF, who spoke with Hulme today, reports: all the pieces are in order and the shipping container that will house the restaurant's operations should land sometime in the beginning of August. Which hopefully means the beer will start flowing sometime in the middle of August. As for the selection: expect half a dozen draft beers and the potential menu includes might-have-guessed items like sausages and pretzel sandwiches. They'll also be serving up spit-roasted entire-animal meals at some point because the head-to-tail dining trend is as popular now as it was with the Visigoths, apparently. No mention yet of what sort of bathroom facilities they're planning for the space next to Patricia's Green on Octavia Boulevard.
If you haven't checked out the Proxy Project yet, the cluster of food service-friendly, converted shipping containers is currently home to Smitten's futuristic ice cream making operation and a Ritual Coffee outpost. Forthcoming additions include a temporary food truck-specific parking spot, a bike kitchen and space for rotating pop-up shops.
