One of the only bars where I always feel right at home. Amazing selection and prices (more for draft than for bottles), knowledgable, friendly, and patient staff, casual atmosphere. Love the big porch in front, as well as the fact that theyíll let you bring over food from the vegan soul food place next door.

One of my favorite spots. There is a full wall of fridges filled with bottles that you can buy or drink on premises for a small fee. The chalkboard menu of on tap beers is extremely well selected and adventurous. Environment and music is very punk rock. Very fun place.

Crazy dive bar cum bottle shop that is pretty hardcore craft beer. The ceiling is decorated with brewery flags and dried hop vines. The taplist when I was there was a Firestone Walker and Lost Abbey/Port tap takeover. 13 Lost Abbey beers on tap and another 10 from Firestone Walker and Deschutes. Tons of other local beers. Service was very good considering over 200 people were packed into this beer store sized room. Glassware was nice, keg rotation looked rapid. Outdoor seating area is a big plus. Very sociable place. I donít think Iíve ever been in a room with as many hard core beer people in my life.

great selection, 40 plus taps, loaded with Firestone Walker, Lost Abbey & Deschutes. Very busy, tons of bottles. Very strange set up. Never seen a bar with so much room for the bartenders to move. Tight fit in here. I guess its a beer beer/store. 1030 last call on a Saturday threw me for a loop

I could not beleive that this was a beer store - so many taps that I lost count, plus endless bottles jam packed for SF beer week when we were there, for a Lost Abbey and Firestone Walker event. Great crowd, amazing vibe. Best beer store I have ever visited.

I love Beer Revolution. The ambiance isnít great and the punk rock can be a bit much at times. The selection is awesome with a ton of great stuff on tap and a good bottle selection, which are available for take away purchase as well. The service can be a mixed bag. Rebecca is great (I give her a 10); Fraggle is a dick. Parking sucks! Itís best to take the train and walk the 10 or so blocks to get there.

I have come here a few times. This place has a great patio for beer and sunshine, but inside is a bit divey and hard to maneuver if there is any kind of crowd. Service is usually good and knowledgeable. Beer selection is outstanding with 40+ taps and coolers full of bottle beer (unfortunately rather randomly assorted). Beer prices are reasonable for the selection. Overall a great place to p/u beer and sample a large variety, I have tried to come on a brewer event night and the crowd was crazy in the small space but otherwise have had some good times here.

First things first: ambiance-wise, this place is a hole. Uncomfortable, packed with a rather loud crowd, seating sketchy, not very nice smelling either. The patio was decent, but it was very hard to maneuver. Sometimes took a long time to get beers, though they seemed to know what the beers were about. Great selection: lots of quality beers in bottle and keg, and a few hard to find beers as well. I would definitely go back, though itís not the kind of place I would want to hang out in for long.

One of the best beer bars around. Amazing selection of beers on tap that are constantly changing. They have all the rare stuff you donít see other places. Service is great, ask a question about beer and get an honest answer. Decent prices, from 5 to 10 dollars depending on the beer. They also have a few cooler doors for bottled beer that you can either drink there or take to go. Didnít eat while I was there but they had a BBQ going that smelled great. Overall no one can match their selection of rare beers, this is my new Sunday spot.
