Sandwiched between Temescal and Piedmont in what was once called the Jewel Box, Hog’s Apothecary is a New American Beer Hall brought to you by John and Tavia Stewart-Streit. Our menu features a regular selection of house-butchered porcine delights and farm-direct produce that ideally complement the most unique and well-curated draft selection in the state of California.
We take great pride in using the bounty and beasts of farmers who employ only the highest standards of sustainability.
Molly is the best! Food is great too!
Hogs’ sausages are delicious as are the newer items, the burger and Cuban sandwich. The beer selection is spectacular and the music carefully curated. Finally, the staff is awesome.
Good food, great beer options. Waitress not the friendliest
We love coming here for the delicious food, amazing beer selection and super nice staff! The weekend brunch with shrimp and grits smoky tomato sauce and sautéed greens melts in your mouth. Chicken and waffles are the best we’ve tasted by far. Keep up the good work -we can’t wait to come back!
Really enjoyed the addition of Cactus Pete to the energy of the place on a Saturday night!!
Great food (the chicken dinner) large portion (half a chicken) and a wonderful selection of craft beers to match.
The skirt steak was "to die for," according to my boyfriend and the dessert was "stupid good"...I was full from earlier, so I only had tastes, but the shoe string potatoes with the steak were perfect - probably the best I've had. Cheers!!
Just when I thought I had tried everything, they put a wonderful spinach salad on the menu, truly tasty, and the pork chop (still the best in town) sides were also creative and tasty. Fun to taste new Pilsners every time. Great job and value 👍
Great food and service but too loud
Always great service with a smile and a sense of humor. Tons of options for drinks and a well-considered menu. We shared three dishes - a beet salad, meatballs with creamy grits and a tomato sauce, and one of the most tender steaks I've ever had with the tiniest shoestring potatoes. All were delicious.
Hogs is a weekly necessity! Love the food and the staff.
Our server was amazing, food was fantastic! We will be back! Thank you!!
Food and service is great! Noise level over the top☹️
Everything was great. It would be nice if they invested in some blinds for the windows because the sun was shining right on us.
Always a nice experience. The meatballs were delicious! Highly recommend.
Service was good and I like the atmosphere of the restaurant. The beer selections are numerous.
We have had many good meals here. NYE was a mess. Understaffed including hte kitchen. Very long waits for uncoordinated preparation.
Great beers. Could taste before committing!
The fried chicken was amazing! Great beer selection too
Terrific little neighborhood restaurant, great food, amazing selection of beers, funky ambiance! It all works!
Good food with lots of choices for beer
Had the crab cakes salad and chopper (pork chop). Excellent blending of flavors. My boyfriend is on a health kick & the cabbage/sweet potatoes with the chop, were delicious & met his "no processed food/no starch" diet. Tasted truly of the holidays!!
Food was amazing.
Went with friends who are beer fanatics and they were very pleased. Food is good but not great; you're here for the beer and a good time. Sausages are housemade and may be seasoned differently than expected, but were all tasty. Menu is very short but adequate for a party of six. Service was good, stretched a little thin as it got crowded but no big negatives. Street parking only, no problem on a weekday evening.
Always enjoy the staff, atmosphere and food here at Hog’s! I’m not a particularly big beer drinker so I come for the excellent food. Chicken is outstanding and brat selection is delicious. Keep at it!
I love this place
This was the first time I've been here and I have to say this. Some of their staff was nice, friendly, and helpful. Very pleasant. The host, though, gave me the distinct impression he couldn't care less whether or not I was a patron. No eye contact, no expression. Just really cold. Maybe he had an off day? Being the first person I interacted with at this restaurant, I wasn't sure what I was in for.
I almost walked out because of him. I'm glad I didn't.
I loved this place. The ambiance, the vibe, and the FOOD. Oh, the food. High quality, delicious dishes full of flavor without being salty or sugary. Perfectly poached eggs with pastrami and sauerkraut (I think they were made in house) atop toasted levain with a delish mustard hollandaise - YUM. The potatoes were creamy on the inside. CREAMY! Biscuits with house made jam - flaky, tender, not to be missed. They do brunch right. It's comfort food with a delicious twist. It was really a treat to come here finally, and I enjoyed every bite.
Why did I not eat it all? Because I was trying #portioncontrol. Oh! That's why! Regrets!
TAH is fantastic! We went for brunch early-ish on a Sunday, having made reservations online just an hour before.
Our server (long beard, bald head) was funny, informative and so patient. Much appreciated. The food was excellent. I got the Apothecary Benedict. I am regretting not eating it all, but my hubby is happy that I brought some home to share. I'll be taking him back. No splitskies!
Took a friend for a belated birthday, because I knew she had never been and wanted to go. We had a reservation originally for 5:30 but got delayed. I called and changed to 6:45 but we were hung up again. They were super cool and offered to postpone our reservation until 7:45. When we arrived, the place was full but there our two reserved seats. Beers were delicious and we were offered multiple tasters before deciding on the Belgian ale. My friend had the pork chop which was to die for and I enjoyed my Italian sausage. To celebrate my friend's birthday, they brought a DELICIOUS huckleberry cheese, which they provided for free. Fantastic place. Can't believe I live so close and this is the first time I've gone. Will definitely return. Just a really great vibe and very very nice people who work there.
Hog’s food is delicious and the staff are courteous and fun.
We were lucky to reserve a table. Long tables are communal and larger parties can be accommodated. Our dinner was spur-of-the-moment and we wanted to try something new. The impressive list of beers was varied and comprehensive. Our waiter was super and knowledgeable about the food and the beer. It was noisy but the vibe was social and happy. Good food. I had the buttermilk fried chicken with Asian-style stir fry. My hubby had a burger with spicy grilled poblanos. Homemade potato chips were great. Beers to fin any taste and we were steered correctly to what we liked by our server. Great place in Temescal.
Would have been a 5, but they forgot the birthday.
One of my favorite spots! The food is exceptional, the ambiance is fun and lively, and the service is great. A super fun spot, never disappoints. Highly recommend!
I love this restaurant! Awesome appetizers. Fabulous beer!!!!
From the moment I checked-in, the host and ambience was filled with friendly urban characters that were witty and warm. The food was delicious and the time of service was impeccable. Will go here again!
Great beer selection! And grilled fish sandwich was sooo good!! Plus, their donuts with raspberry sauce were very yummy too!!!
Wow that was delicious. The fried chicken was amazing! The biscuits and gravy were not traditional, but also yummy. The gravy went great on the fried chicken too.
Excellent food and customer service. First time customer but will be back to try the lunch and dinner menus. I’ll bring my beer drinking friends.
Good service, and they have a few sour beers which I love. The Marmalade was delicious. The food was solid, although the salumieri plate was very sparse for the money. $31 and you get 3 tiny pickles between 4 people? C’mon. My friend’s $16 salad was tiny too. This is why they get 3 stars instead of 4. The meal came out way expensive for the amount of food we got. I’d go back in a pinch, but only for the beer and burgers.
Excellent service, great selection of beers on-tap (and some wines/ciders), and incredibly delicious food. Great from start to finish!
