Although the Steep Brew taproom at the Whole Foods in Potrero Hill has been open for business for a few weeks, the official opening is on Friday, March 30, from 5-7 p.m. Steep Brew features 16 beers on tap and many others in bottles. Also, you can buy a bottle in the market upstairs and have it served in the appropriate glassware for $1 corkage.
On hand to help inaugurate the new taproom will be local brewers from Magnolia, which makes some very nice English-style session beers, among others, and Pacific Brewing Laboratories, notorious for such exotic brews as Hibiscus Saison, Squid Ink Black IPA, Chamomile Ale, Lemongrass IPA and Szechwan Peppercorn red ale.
In addition to the beer, you'll be able to sample some “sweet and savory bites.” Food is also available on Steep Brew's seasonal menu and in artisan cheese pairings. There will also be giveaways and raffles in support of the Whole Planet Foundation.
Steep Brew also has beer and wine flights, and you can try sampler pours of the beers as well. For those in need of a caffeine fix, there's also an espresso bar at Steep Brew.
