Visited on a random wednesday night. Awesome place. Walking in, on the left is a relatively Small, but insanely well done selection of beers for purchase. On the right is a small bar area with a few tables and a couple stools. Was packed the whole time I was there. Recently started a partnership with the place on the corner where you can order artisan sausage rolls (boar, duck, kielbasa, etc) from the bar, then walk over and pick up. They were great. Tap list is about 10-12 handles, all very, very good and included several Iíve never seen on tap before (RR Porter, 09 Abyss stood out). There are also 3 coolers behind the bar for on-premise only sales of limited release/aged/rarer stuff (last night, some representatives were 4 Cascade sours, 4-5 varieties of Eclipse, Abacus, Parabola, BCS, etc, etc). Really a neat concept and a place I would visit constantly if it were nearby. Was sad they closed @ 10:00p

Oct 2012. 15 minute walk from the Civic Center BART station. A small beer store packed with an amazing beer selection and some vintage beers. Itíll take a while to scan through the entire selection but itís worth it. They have a surprisingly good selection of Scandinavian beers as well, well, To ōl, Evil Twin and Mikkeller mostly, but still. Classic Belgian beers are well presented.
They have 15 taps including very special beers. For me the best ones were super-fresh New Belgium Lips of Faith Super IPA and Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA. Also, they serve beer cocktails such as the Supercharger (Super IPA + 120 Minute IPA). The staff was very friendly. A must visit in SF.

This place rocks...always stop in when in SF for business. Friendly helpful staff. Shared a Black Albert I bought with some other folks at the bar... Couldnít finish it after the speedway stout on draft I had just had given it was a schoolnight. Can order food from great place down the block and bring it in.

The best bottle shop in the Bay area. Service is always cheerful, willing, and helpful. They recently expanded to make room for even more beers. Love visiting this place.

I only had a short window of time to get here and Iím quite glad I did. Clean and small, with a bar that wraps around half their space and a few tables off of the bar. I did manage a seat at the bar and found the bar staff to be busy, but pleasant and certainly knowledge. Nice varied tap list that covered pale ales to imp stouts and a fabulous barley wine. I find it important to be able to obtain the style of beer you may want next and this was easily accomplished here. Nice reserve bottle list, but at somewhat of a premium cost. Those beers were only available for In house consumption. The rest of the space is refrigerated and shelved beers which could also be consumed there if desired. A staff member spent some time helping me pick 3 bottles to travel with(space was limited) and he took his time and really helped me. I only had an hour to spend here; and it was time very well spent. Others had noted how packed it could be here, by appearances seemece valid. I highly recommend visiting here.

A high quality selection of beer, I found it has a decent number. The atmosphere is decent, although a bit plain, so not amazing. Also recommended to get some bottled beers. Pretty knowledgeable owner.

So hype - plenty about this place. The place has a nice well thought out selection all stored cold for your futures beerís protection. There are a few taps of interesting offerings and there are a few bottle offerings that may not be found elsewhere. Outside of this thereís not much to this place. It is a decent walk from BART and I havenít been here yet when I can take advantage of what they have to offer tap wise or bottle wise because in one case the tiny space was too crowded to try and enjoy a beer and in the other case the bottle offerings and the price or selection I was really not what I was after. Not sure Iíll be back as so far it hasnít been worth the trip.

Stopped in here around lunchtime, while visiting SF. What a great place; wish I had come here instead of Toronado 2 nights earlier. Store is a few steps down from street level. Has a bar area with a bunch of Eclipses, Abysses and other rare bottles available only for consumption there. 8-10 on tap also. Nice shop with maybe 200 bottles for take home. Great place for any beer geek.

Visited a couple of times durning SF beer week. Street level entrance in a newer building that drops down a half flight or so of stairs once you walk in. Very industrial with exposed metal piping and lots of concrete. Bar top with about 8-10 seats and a couple of bistro tables and a bench or two for gathering/seating. Bar had 12-15 taps with a nice selection that differed a bit from other places around town. Canít say if it is always like this because it was beer week. Cooler behind bar with some vintage and rarities for on site consumption, those were a bit spendy. Nice bottle selection, with mostly domestic stuff. Staff seemed fairly knowledgeable and were plenty friendly. As far as the options in SF go, this place is up toward the topÖfor bottleshops. But as far as top bottleshops go, this doesnít compare to top places.

One of the best bottle shops Iíve ever been to, and I love the fact that thereís beer on tap. Friendly staff, even ended up trading beers with one of them.
