City Beer is a top notch beer place in the Bay Area. There are big pluses -- amazing selection, available parking (a bigger deal than you think in SF), fantastic service, some of the best bay area events. And then some negatives that are really beyond their control -- food can sometimes be hard to get in the area, itís a small place so they sometimes have crowd control and it will sometimes get loud. All in all, definitely worth a visit if youíre from out of town. One of four or five must visit places in the SF area.

Great bottle shop and bar, selection was fantastic. Prices were a bit high but no surprise with the bottle selection. Drank several drafts while we shopped, all outstanding. They got a delivery while we were there from Russian river so of course bought 4 PTE and picked up some other locals I had not tried. Great advice from the bartenders, highly recommend.

Spacious store with a great selection. Still I would choose Healthy Spirits over this.

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.

troubles  (188) Tel Aviv, Israel | November 25, 2014
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.
