This place is awesome. It is about fifty percent specialty beer store and fifty percent tap room. The taps were great. It didnít have an enormous selection but what they had was well thought out and somewhere around fifty percent of the handles were rare or otherwise special. The store provided a good selection w/ a heavy focus on craft beer specialties. Vibe was low key and the staff friendly and attentive. I felt very comfortable w/ my notebook, stopping in to rate a few pints. A definite must stop for a beer hunter.

Nice selection of taps (about 16 or so beers), good selection of bottled, and friendly staff. Iíve been to a fair few places like this, that are both a bottle shop and a beer bar. Iíd like to see more. I also like that you can buy anything bottled and drink it there.

Visited the 11th February 2015 for the Alesmith selection during the SF beer week - Really nice place on downtown. Good ambiance and nice feeling. Good beer selection with normal price list. Staff is nice and friendly. Keep it mind itís a beer store so letís check the selection... One word : AMAZING ! You will find beers from everywhere with some vintage and some rareties. Really impressive selection with good prices. Not so excessive. I recommend it, if you are looking for some special beers.

Stopped by City Beer after hitting up CM. Dark-lit botte shop / bar. Decent draft menu and lots and lots of bottles. Really nice to pick up a few 3Font bottles.

This place is much more a bar than a beer store. Visited on Sat afternoon ,place was packed, great atmosphere. Nice tap selection, large bottle selection but mostly large bottles. This is great if you live around, but a problem if you need to carry back home in your luggage... location is far from center but itís worth the visit.

This small spot is awesome, from the hole-in-the-wall atmosphere to the service, to the selection, and the prices. Itís none of what I dislike about San Francisco with everything I do like, and itís right in the heart of the city. The draft list isnít enormous, but itís damn good, and the bottle list is outstanding. Iím very happy I stopped by, and encourage others to do the same.

A bottle shop with a bar and places to sit down! Why the hell canít I find a place like this in New England??? The place can get load because it is in the basement of a building but I forgive them for that. They had a decent selection of bottles which even included a cooler with cellared brews. A trend for California beer trip was stopping in at places during off hours, this was no exception. I could see this place getting overly packed because of the limited space. Side note** it is not a far walk from the closest BART station, so it really should be a stop if you are visiting San Fran.

Popped in for takeaway. Really nice bottleshop, that has a bar incorporated. Selection is good, and the staff is very friendly! Will definitely come if I am ever in San Fransisco again.

This was this first beer store to introduce me to sour beer. That first 750 ml bottle of sanctification got me hooked. Now that they have expanded and have a bar area, they are pretty much unbeatable if you want a bar/bottle shop experience in San Francisco. Great selection. Kind, thoughtful service. I am forever indebted to Craig for introducing me to Russian River about 6 years ago.

Real great place. Bare bones basement 10 Person bar.. more tables too. Half bar. Half bottle shop Good service. Wasnt to crowded yet. Good tap elections great bottle selection. Russian river apparently arrives on Wednesday. Didnít try good. But they have small premade jarred appetizers.Fair prices for San Francisco. Great place. Worth a stop when on San Francisco.
