Pangaea Bier Cafe
2743 Franklin Blvd.
Sacramento , CA 95818 916-454-4942
From lager lovers to doppelbock devotees, beer aficionados have been flocking to Pangaea since it opened in 2008 for its 29 rotating taps, which pour everything from an imperial coffee stout by Missouri’s Perennial Artisan Ales to a blonde ale by Belgian brewer Brasserie Dupont, as well as a constant selection of six sour ales. The food offerings at this lively tavern (which maintains a communal vibe with oversize wood bench tables and an intimate, rounded bar) hold up to the hearty beer list—try the buttery, chewy pretzel with melty beer cheese; the house-smoked bratwurst sausage with Dijon aioli and beer-braised peppers and onions; or the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich on a brioche bun with house-made pickles and habanero aioli. Pass under the dining room’s stone archway to the attached retail shop, where you’ll find almost 200 bottles of specialty suds from the likes of San Francisco’s Cellarmaker Brewing Co. and Capitola’s Sante Adairius.
