Small place. Half bar, half store. Both halves are pretty good. The bar has a good selection of beers on tap, and a great "vintages cooler" with some really hard-to-find stuff in it. The store has a large and excellent selection. Great place to get a glass of beer and browse the store.

Awesome bottle shop and bar - very high quality list of taps, which included a couple of Sante Adairius beers on tap. Bottle selection isnít the largest Iíve seen, but it boasts top quality brews. Prices are pretty high for the tap beers, but pretty standard for the bottles. An obvious choice for any beer nerd in San Fran.

Unassuming basement. Draft list is great and brought me back several times over my last trip. Bottle selection was surprisingly unimpressive. A few cool, expensive bottles to drink in the cooler behind the counter.

Just a basement with some interesting beers on tap and very large and interesting bottle selection. Also good amount of vintage bottles for on-site drinking.

Buen lugar, con un gran ambiente, musica a in volumen aceptable para poder platicar. Un buen servicio sin ser el mejor. Variedad ampliamente aceptable, tanto en barril cůmo en botellas. Un lugar bastante recomendable que se debe visitar.

Great little spot (and I do mean little) with bottle stacked throughout, some still in boxes. Some incredible gems, though, and a couple of nice Bruery beers on tap. Definitely stop here when in SF! The problem was walking a mile back to the hotel with a massive haul...but worth it!

Didnít like this place so much. It seems a basement a litlle bit cleaned and with the add of some tap and fridges. Bottle list is huge ( but personally was not that surprised) Nice tap saelection. Bartender was maybe the worst thing among with the prices! Not my tipe of place!

Really disappointed about this place. Probably Iíve been there the wrong day, really crowded place and only 2 workers behind the bar. I had to wait a lot before ordering, waiters were unprofessional and not to knowledgeable about taps and bottles. They didnít check if our bottle (3fonteinen 2012) was over before take away our glasses (and it wasnít). We asked suggestion for a restaurant and the bartender send us (me and my boyfriend) in a creepy dirty (super dirty) restaurant at the corner of the street, so that we would have came back to drink more in the "city beerstore". So sad of this experience i hope I will change my mind but this place is definitely over rated for any standard: European or American. Bleah

Impressive tap selection and bottles are stored well for the limited space they have. Iíd be here often if I lived in town.
