Honestly. It doesnít get better. Craig not only listens he responds. Hes not (1) ignorant, as are most bar-tends or (2) pretentious--he doesnít give a shit whatever syle of beer you are into--he will have something to please you. This place is a gem.

Best beer store on planet earth. Killer selection. Go for cans if you on your way to SFO and a flight!

Rode my bike here during Christmas week after reading about the shop online. The owners were greeting friends and filling holiday orders for premium brews. Fans of high-end beer would KILL for a shop like this in their neighborhood. I sampled Port Brewing Santaís Helper 2009 - Wow! They also serve tasty snacks to nibble as you sip.

I cant express how much I love this place, yes itís not a bar, but neither is it purely a bottle store. Itís a very neat place - Craig and Beth superb people! Great selection - Craig going out his way to source the best that he can, and this effort in my book, deserves applause. 2 visits in 2008. Feb and August.

Great place. Interesting stuff on tap tending toward hop bombs and sours. Fantastic bottle selection. Rapidly rotating stock so there will be new stuff each time you visit. Itís 21 and over -no babies- thatís a big plus. You can bring your own food but I recommend the pork tacos from citizens band available after 5:30. Service is knowledgeable and mostly friendly. Their suggestions are spot on if you need help deciding. Great place.

Amazing place for the true beer geek. This place is a shop but also a bar so you can drink everything they have there. Your are surrounded by the bottles on the shelves and in the fridges so you can browse while you drink. They have too many bottles to count and their tap selection isnít bad. This is a must visit place in San Francisco.

Got here after staggering thru the streets of SF after attending the Barley Wine festival at Toranado. A liquor store/bar - why didnít somebody think of this before? An original - highly recommended.
