Comedy Central’s Clusterfest Returns to SF With a ‘Drunk History’ Beer Garden

Serving Alexander Hamiltots and more punny foods

It’s festival season and the hits keep coming. Clusterfest, the three-day comedy festival, has now announced its dining lineup. It has also announced a new attraction this year: the Drunk History beer garden, a spinoff the very funny Comedy Central show wherein drunk comedians explain historical events.

The beer garden will serve Hop Valley and Saint Archer beers, alongside food items like the “Alexander Hamiltots,” and “Al Capone’s Italian Sausage.” (Full menu below.) Elsewhere, vendors like Señor Sisig, Woodhouse Fish Co. and Kronnerburger will offer special festival menus. Gerard’s Paella, whose chef was part of the inspiration for the recently released Netflix movie Wine Country, will also be there, cooking up enormous paellas.

This year’s comedy lineup includes some serious comedic talent, from Amy Poehler and Friends (perhaps a Wine Country reunion?), Issa Rae, Chelsea Peretti, Jonathan Van Ness, Patton Oswalt, Nicole Byer, and more. Musical acts like Courtney Barnett and Japanese Breakfast will perform as well. And, perhaps most importantly, there will be live readings of movies: Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion will be read by drag icon Trixie Mattel and others, while Clueless will be read by Issa Rae, Ilana Glazer, and so many others.

The festival goes June 21-23 at Civic Center Plaza and the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Check out the full comedy lineup here and the food lineup below.
