Interesting place. Fairly busy and noisy and located on a main street (16th) but there really wasnt anything special about this place, except the taps claiming to be house brews. Didnt try one so who knows what they are. Will have to stop in again and inquire the next time I get off BART at 16th/Mission.
Service was nice even if she was a bit overworked. Prices are average. The only reason itís not completely forgettable is that they have these house beers. Need to investigate.

Your local dive bar in The Mission district of SF. Itís been a couple other places over the years but seems to be the same. Itís a old bar. Cozy and a great place to fill up with some friends. Their selection is typical About 8-12 taps and the same on bottles. More of a liquor bar.

Visited after seeing that the line at Monkís Kettle was ridiculously long. This place is a hidden gem with a good crowd. Decent beer selection and they consistently served the beer in the correct glass. Bartender was very knowledgeable and also helpful with my girlfriend when trying to decide what to order. After several rounds of beer the tab was reasonable. Recommend this place highly if you see that Monkís Kettle is packed as it is literally just one block away.

Building has been around since 1858 with pubs in this neighborhood corner bar. 8-10 taps of Bass, Guiness, Old Speckled Hen, etc. nothing cutting edge except they have Snake Oil IPA made for them by Sudwerk: Rich, oily hios, big bitter finish.
