Fancy beer bar Abbot’s Cellar coming soon to Valencia Street

Eater SF tells us about the new outpost from the Monk’s Kettle folks, coming this winter to Valencia near 18th (pictured above is the current incarnation, John’s Jaguars):

The “very focused” beer program will include 100 food-friendly bottles, some aged options, seasonal flights and 24 beers held on draft at the proper temperature. Beer geeks, please note two hand-pump cask engines will also be in the house.

Thank goodness.

[Thanks, Cole!]

I know you’re still curious. Tonight, you can find out at this show. Stay tuned for a follow-up post!
