Definitely a hole in the wall, but in away I like. Good loud music and an awesome selection of beers. Cash only was a surprise, but not a problem. Some have said it is a little rough, but I though it was awesome.

Crowded hole in the wall sort of place with a strong tap list. They didnít have anything exceedingly rare on draft when I stopped in, but I was still able to try a couple new brews. The bartenders had a bit of an attitude, but nothing so bad as to detract from the experience. Cool place, but I was expecting more based on the huge number of very positive reviews.

Classic dive bar with a wonderful beer selection. When I was there it was mostly belgian offerings with a handful of local California stuff. Bartender was very talkative and lots of food being brought in from next door. Reminded me of a few places in Chicago for sure. Iíll be back.

Lively with a good beer selection, but to be honest not my kind of place, it comes across as a bit rough.

A must visit when in San Fransisco. I was there for a conference and it coinsided with the Toronado IPA festival. I came the day after the festival but still had a big selection to sample. Had to go over to their neibouring food place for a burger to bring over. They looked a litel strange when I just ordered half pints but after sampling all their IPAís (aboute 10) and Anchor porter on cask, I was glad I didnít take full pints. Unfortunantly missed their barley festival at the SF beer week when I was there last but look forward to my next wisit.

This is my Blind Tiger Ale House "west". Itís the one place I must visit whenever anywhereís near SF...and the only west coast place that reminds me of my favorite BTAH. With 252 reviews itís hard to say something that hasnít been said (something of value that is). Well Iíve always loved the dutch door...LOL! Of course the beers are amazing. Yes the attitude can be tough/strong/impatient...choose your word...but the staff and patrons are very knowledge and beer geeks will certainly feel at home. As for others...well sit down...order something...& get the vibe before saying too much...that will get you appreciated (& not kicked out...only kidding...the attitude is a little over hyped...they are really good people here). Toughest part of a visit for a tourist is just finding a parking spot. Worth the effort though!

Rough-ish, crowded bar with self confidence and a magnificent lineup of beers. A must visit in SF.

Ah, the lore of Toronado. There are absolutely awesome parts of this bar; they get incredible beer and have actually very good prices as compared to DC/NY/Chicago. The atmosphere is absolutely not my scene, but you cannot fight with Russian River and randomly having bottles of Marin BB Old Dipsea available for 20 bucks. Great beer, not my scene for a place to hang.

Visited during SF beer week. It was pretty much what I was expecting when I walked in. Older, stickers everywhere, loud music, small, divey. Tap list had some left over RR sion beers, good regional offerings and some other leftover tap takeover stuffÖalso missing at least 10 handles as there were getting ready for another event that evening. Service was prompt and to the point. I donít have any problem with that as I donít need hand holding when I order my beer. Sat at bar and witnessed a customer bartender interaction that was classic and the stories that you hear about the Toronado. The thing is, this customer was a fool and deserved the attitude he got. If you have a pointed question and arenít a douche, you will be taken care of just fine. Iconic place, not the best beer bar I have ever been to but tons of character. Hope to make it back again during just a regular old day to see what the draft list has to offer.
