Welcome to the Mid-Week Menu, our weekly roundup of East Bay food news.
1) Following on the heels of yesterday’s news about Brotzeit Lokal, here is another sausage-and-beer-related item: Temescal’s Hog’s Apothecary (375 40th St.), which we previewed earlier this year, is in the final stretch of an ambitious $20,000 Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign that owners Bradford Earle and John Streit hope will pay for the finishing touches on the beer hall and restaurant. As of this posting, with six days left in the campaign, they’re a little more than halfway to their goal. Among the perks being offered to top-tier contributors: Free. Beer. For. The. Rest. Of. Your. Life. (There’s some fine print, but yes, you read that right.)
