A saison snack

Bier de Roots, Urban Roots & Brewing

Urban Roots & Brewing, located on a quiet downtown street in the Southside Park neighborhood, has earned rave reviews since opening—and for good reason. Co-founded by hops experts Rob Archie (Pangaea Bier Cafe) and Peter Hoey (Sacramento Brewing Company), the barbecue/beer joint is cavernous yet welcoming, hip yet family-friendly. Oh, and the beer is damn good. Try the Bier de Roots (or any other petit saison that happens to be on the ever-changing menu; $6 for a pint). With its light, floral finish, this is a low-octane brew that pairs nicely with the brewery’s crave-worthy cheese grits. Trust us, it makes for the perfect anytime snack. 1322 V Street, urbanrootsbrewing.com.
