Bar Agricole's Finally Set to Open in August. Here's What You'll Be Drinking

Chronicle wine editor Jon “Bee in the Bonné” gets the scoop on the highly anticipated opening of Bar Agricole, now set to open August 15.

The project is the brainchild of Thad Vogler and Eric Johnson, arguably the most influential forces in the San Francisco cocktail and bar revival. They either started or redefined the programs at The Slanted Door, Beretta, Camino, Jardinière, COCO 500, and Presidio Social Club.

The progression of the pair's style of cocktail-making has been evolving into a cleaner and ultra-locally focused style, with a preference for agricole-type rum. That's a spirit made entirely from distilled, fresh-pressed and fermented sugarcane juice, rather than the molasses common with most other rums.
