Fergie's adds a beer garden

Wajih Abed and Fergus Carey at Fergie's new beer garden, 1214 Sansom St.

Everybody is getting into the pop-up beer garden act, Fergus Carey was saying to himself recently.

Fortunately he and business partner Wajih Abed have an empty lot next door to their Fergie's Pub at 1214 Sansom St.

Starting Wednesday, July 16, they'll have a tent, picnic tables, light strings, and 4 drafts (Sixpoint Apollo Wheat, Sierra Summerfest, Lagunitas Dogtown Pale Ale and Angry Orchard Cider, all $6).

Instant pop-up.

"I may not be the first and sometimes I am not last," he said on Facebook.

Runs Wednesday through Saturday (5 to 10 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 2 p.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday).

Menu includes beef or veggie hot dog ($2), seitan tacos with spicy corn salsa ($5 for 2), cheesesteak spring rolls ($8.50), corn on the cob ($2.50), pub fries with dip ($5), fried pickles ($6), fruit salad ($5), hummus with corn chips ($5.50), coleslaw ($2.50) and various desserts ($6.50).

Besides the aforementioned drafts, there are three cans, two wines and spiked lemonade.
