Snag a square slice of pie, street dog or Filipino sweet spaghetti at the recently opened SSP Beer Hall located at 59 9th Street, just 0.2 miles from NEMA San Francisco. This is one of the biggest projects to date from Dennis, David, and Daniel Lee, the brothers behind now-closed Namu Gaji, still popular Namu Stonepot and Sunset Squares Pizza. The new SSP Beer Hall will serve food from both of their ventures, Sunset Squares
sourdough pizzas, and Namu Stonepot
items, plus dishes from Filipino American pop-up Uncle Tito. To go with all that is a selection of beer on tap and in cans and bottles, focused on IPAs and sours.
In the former 5,000 square feet Perennial space, SSP Beer Hall has rearranged the original bar space being used for seating, with space for about 50 at a communal table, seats at the bar, and seats at a new window counter. Customers can walk in, snag a seat, and order directly from their devices.
Sunset Squares Pizza. On the menu are sourdough square creations like the General Mapo Tofu pizza, Clam Chowder Pie, and Bulldog pizza with tall crispy cheese walls. A few Chicago Pub Style 10" Grid Cut style favorites include the Jiangbing and Honey Butter Pub. There are also basic topping options like pepperoni or mushroom, as well as a Keto Cheese pizza. You can also order up a 20” round pizza, a variety of salads, wings, cheesy breads, sauces, and sweets.
Namu Stonepot. In addition to the Namu Stonepot menu of rice bowls, there's also a short menu of street food dogs, like the Sisig Dog and the Pork and Kimchee Dog. Wash it down with a Matcha Latte or Korean Tiger Boba Milk, available in 12 or 24 oz. Score cheesy lumpia or bulldog fries as an appetizer, and order a side of kimchee or sauces.
Uncle Tito. Dishes like garlic adobo chicken wings, sisig street fries, and lechon kawali will keep you coming back for more. More tempting signature dishes include Laing wontons, fried rice, Baon Boxes, Ube Cha Cha and a few sweet options.
SSP Beer. Featuring local craft brews with plenty of hops. The curated beer list features Cellarmaker, Harmonic, Far West Cider, and more. They’ll have about 10 beers on tap, vino, and a cold case full of cans.
The SSP Beer Hall is also going to have a digital art gallery component. There are seven screens hanging in the space which will display NFTs for sale. The Lee brothers claim that SSP Beer Hall is “the first physical NFT gallery in San Francisco,” and the first combined “beer hall and NFT gallery in the world.” NFT stands for non-fungible token, and it’s a way for artists to authenticate digital art, using the same technologies as cryptocurrency, EaterSF defers to friends at the Verge to explain better. SSP Beer Hall plans to feature monthly exhibitions, showcasing artists like Robness, Fewocious, Hackatao, Xcopy, and Beeple, and “foster a community around all things crypto.”
