|Biergarten in San Francisco|
After reading an article in Atlantic Cities a while back about a Pop-up beer garden in San Fran, I thought to myself, what a fun concept. Especially in a time where so many real estate deals are slow in the making, the idea of using the land temporarily in bring life to the site/neighborhood seems brilliant. The cost; a retrofitted shipping container, electricity source/lighting, a few sets of chairs and tables and beer. Lots and lots of beer. Many throw in some salty friend chickpeas or wasabi popcorn. Seems easy enough, right? But alas, the article was published in November and with the Pittsburgh winter looming (who knew it was gonna be 55 in February?!?), I shelved the idea for a later date.
So where do you think this would work best? What location do you think would have the best draw for crowds if it was open Wed-Sun afternoon? What Pittsburgh brewing operation would you want to see on tap? Cheers!
