Stopped in 4 or 5 times since 2007.

The first time I stopped here was completely by accident. Decided to walk all the way from 16th/Mission BART to Magnolia and took a shortcut up Castro to 15th. Saw the Chimay sign sticking out and decided to stop in. Neat place for sure. I decided to limit myself to one bottle since I had several miles left to walk and got the Urthel Samaranth. Since then I come back every other year or so and pick up something interesting or just some Russian River stuff.

The service is very nice and even though they "only" have a couple of doors of beer itís a good selection. Prices can be a bit higher than average but not by all that much. Will continue to (occasionally) give them some business. Its also not all that far from Toronado if youíre walking around the city.

"The other" well known bottle shop in the City. A bit more expensive, somehow, but really good selection. Helpful staff, most of the beer is stored in coolers, limited releases, and I think they have a beer club of some sort (for locals).

Lovely bottle shop. A lot of quality beers crammed into a small site. I didnít get a chance to talk with staff whilst browsing for take aways but friendly during the purchase transaction. Do try and visit HS when in SF.

Small place, most of their beer is in coolers. Pretty interesting and eclectic selection for the size of the place, including a bunch of 2010 Schaerbeekse Kriek. Staff very helpful and knowledgeable; obviously knows his beer and wants to help. Prices pretty high compared to City Beer, but the selection is better, so i guess you get what you pay for.

Fantastic small bottle shop with a great selection, including quite a bit of stuff that I didnít see at City Beer. Very friendly and helpful service, and a calm, well organized interior. Prices are fair. Definitely worth a stop when bottle shopping in San Fran.

Top of the line bottle shop with just about everything you can imagine. The small store focuses on craft beer and small batch bourbon. And is one of the only places Iíve heard that have commissioned barrel aged beers for themselves (the other is Knightly Spirits in Orlando, FL)> You can even order stuff they have in stock online and they will ship to you. Whoa. When I was there they had the entire Lost Abbey lineup, Firestone Walker special release, 50/50 Eclipse releases. Really top notch albeit a little expensive. Staff there was extremely knowledgeable and friendly.

Small beer store. Easy to find and reach by car. Very friendly and knowledgeable service. The beer seemed to be fresh and fairly priced. A pleasant experience.

A world class beer store. We walked there from Monkís kettle on our way to Toronado. It is in reality quite small inside, but donít let that fool you. Selection is very well picked from the likes of Lost Abbey, RR, FW, Cascade.... to name but a few. There was some very interesting limited edition brews such as 50/50 Eclipse on offer. I was also impressed with the extensive vintages of Gales Prize Old ale, which you could never get in the UK. The guy behind the desk was both knowledgeable and helpful. Interesting looking bourbons and snacks also available. An essential visit if you are in SF.

Tremendous store! Parking can be dicey, but the selection is incredible for a small shop, and the service is top notch. The employee who helped me really knew his stuff and even offered to sell me something out of his personal stuff so I could get another state rating. Love this place.

Quite a good selection More than a dozen ales I had not rated. Blind Pig and Pliny the Elder were in stock, and relatively plentiful. Rami allowed inspection and purchase of the rarer beers in back, although restricting some very rare singles. Detailed explanation of the search for the uncommon ales. Very educational.
