If you live in Culver City, Woody Harrelson wants to beer you. His new organic beer garden Sage Plant Based Bistro and Beer Garden offers live music, Kind Kreme (that’s a brand of premium dairy-free ice cream for the uninitiated), a menu of vegan comfort food and, of course, a selection of organic beers. Harrelson recently told The Huffington Post’s Xaque Gruber why he chose to collaborate with Chef Mollie Engelhart on this new venture:
“I loved the concept of an organic beer garden, but I didn’t invest in the concept, I really invested in Mollie…she’s amazing. All that you see, hear and taste has everything to do with her and nothing to do with me. I just believed in her, put money in. A lot of people think, ‘vegan?’ but they don’t realize this is the ultimate comfort food.”
Engelhart also helms Echo Park’s Sage Bistro location, so Eastsiders can still get their vegan comfort food fix, minus the beer. Or extra ambitious fans of Sage can do a bike crawl from Echo Park to Culver City and end on a hoppy note. Here’s hoping Harrelson will offer tree-free beer cozies at the Westside location.
