Free Seasonal Cooking Demo & Tasting | Ferry Plaza Farmers Market
Hog’s Apothecary is a New American Beer Hall in the Jewel Box neighborhood of Oakland. The menu features a regular selection of entirely house-butchered porcine delights and farm-direct produce that complement their unique and meticulously curated West Coast draft selection. They take great pride in using the bounty and beasts of farmers and brewers who employ only the highest standards of sustainability.
After waiting tables through college at both Jeremiah Tower’s Stars and Judy Rodgers’ Zuni Cafe, John Stewart-Streit took a post-graduate job in advertising, but found that life unfulfilling. Reflecting on his time at Zuni and the huge inspiration from Chef Judy, he returned to the restaurant world, focusing his attentions on the kitchen. Since returning to the Bay Area in 2005, John has held positions at Delfina, Delfina Pizzeria, Foreign Cinema, and Pizzaiolo.
In September 2013, John opened the doors of the Hog’s Apothecary after spending nearly a year converting a run-down laundromat in his neighborhood of ten years into a fully-restored New American beer hall. The space’s design was modeled after the many community-based beer halls John visited in Germany, and his menu features seasonal, farm-to-table fare that changes daily.
