We created The Roost for SF Beer Week 2019 to show off how delicious HenHouse beers & how talented Bay Area chefs are. This is also why we are so extraordinarily excited to announce its return for SF Beer Week 2020!! Last year we began this partnership with Christina Alexis of the Pleasure Principle Supper Club & Dining Events. Chef Christina helped us settle in on a roster of some of the most exciting culinary stars in the Bay, and the Roost was launched. We held seven exclusive dinner services during SF Beer Week last year & this year's no different! On night #6, CHEF REDWOOD is cooking an epicurean homage to Afro-Futurism; specifically, the artists that exists within that genre. Think: Octavia Butler, Yrsa Daley-Ward, Me'Shell N'Dageocello... distilled through the recipes of her matriarchs. Our goal w/ "The Roost" is a delightful & decadent, educational experience. We will open each week night at 5:30 for a happy hour selection of beer & snacks, followed by dinner service at 7pm.
