Preview: Lots of Sausages and Lots of Beer at The Hog’s Apothecary

The Bay Area’s bar food scene has evolved to the point where boozehounds don’t even blink when they encounter menu items like roast pheasant or poached halibut cheeks served inside a little glass jar. But classic is classic, and recent openings in Oakland reflect a resurgent interest in the tried-and-true pairing of sausages and beer: Uptown’s Telegraph and the new Rosamunde Sausage Grill outpost in Old Oakland.

The Hog’s Apothecary (375 40th Street), an “American-style” beer hall coming soon to Temescal’s 40th Street corridor, will be the latest contender to enter this meaty, boozy fray.
