handy delicatessen outer sunset

handy deli

heh, I wrote “outer sunset” like it was a different city.

this MLK weekend I managed to fit in a few beer-related events, including a bevmo run and a trip to magnolia with AP for some great eats and a kalifornia kolsch, oysterhead stout, proving ground IPA, and sara’s ruby mild.

however, the highlight of my weekend was discovering a great liquor store/sandwich shop in the outer sunsethandy delicatessen.

  • handy delicatessen is a little liquor store with a big local and european beer selection.  they stock the standard lineup but had plenty of hard to find beers (check out the pics!)
  • to top it off, they have a deli sandwich counter where you can order up some pretty decent, fat sandwiches on the cheap (I don’t think any were over $4).  just remember to ask if you want your sandwich hot (I didn’t think they made cold pastrami sandwiches, go figure…).
  • plus, they’re open till 2am – perfect if you’re in the area and want some late-night specialty brews and a good sandwich to finish off the night.
  • overall, handy deli is a good store to add to your city-wide beer hunt lineup, and a must-visit if you’re over on irving street near 19th.

    I’ve lived exactly 10 blocks from this place for over 2 years now and never knew about it. Time to take a walk. Thanks for posting about it.
