Visited during SF beer week for firkin event. Lots of wood and tile, pretty much open air with about a 8í wood/glass divider in the middle, a draft list board above that and the bar on the back wall. Hard to tell about the service as it was pack with standing room only, the 2 beers I sample were fine, but nothing mind blowing. Didnít eat, but plenty of people were and it looked decent. Draft prices where a bit on the high side, but not too bad. Worth a stop if in the neighborhood and have time, but wouldnít go out of my way to make it here again

We were in Magnolia in 2007. The place is not too far from Toronado. Itís a beer restaurant with very good food. Liked the interior, some nice pictures, very colorful. Beers are mainly English style ales, quite tasteful. We bought one of the nicest beer T-shirts in our whole collection.

Visited maybe 12 times over the past 6 years. I usually stop in once on every trip to northern CA as they always have some new beers on tap
These guys make mostly English style beers with the majority being bitters, milds, and pale ales with an occasional porter or stout mixed in. If thatís not your thing then you can get bored with the beer Iím sure. The upside is that they also participate in the Strong Ale Month with 21st Amendment where every February each brewery makes 6 strong ales through out the month and more recetly the BRU/SFO project in November which are all Belgian style beers (they both start off with 4 on tap and then relase another during the 3rd and 4th week of the month. You can get a punch card and if you get them all stamped at each brewery you get a free glass, but to do it just for the glass isnt worth it since youíll probably pay around $100 total).
The food is good and itís a friendly atmosphere but it can get pretty full at night. The bar is pretty small and doesnt seat a whole lot of people. Often times itíll be standing room only. Servicve is pretty good as well, even if it does get busy.
Prices are high but not ridiculous compared to any other place in SF.

Upscale English food with a wide variety of beers brewed under the restaurant. They are hella busy and I still got good service. Creative menu and tasted good. They offer flights for $12 and they are big. You get a card with your selections and the recommended drinking order.

Cool little brewpub in the Haight. Usually pretty crowded, but Iíve never had much of a problem finding a space at the bar. The food is supposed to be great but Iíve never eaten here. The beers are generally mediocre, but they have some pretty cheap samplers, which is nice. The service is good/attentive, and thatís always appreciated.

Several house beers on tap, didnít have the time to check bottles. Very crowded at peak hours, gets very noisy. The dishes looked quite good too.

A very interesting pub smack dab in the middle of the Haight district. I love that these guys specialize in British style cask conditioned ales. You just donít see that often in California. They hold a firkin fest every year that is pretty awesome. The beers are all good in my opinion. The cask bitters are a highlight and I had a great oak aged imperial stout last time I was here. The ambiance is very nice even though it seems a bit crammed inside. The service is good and the prices seem fair. The food is also excellent and served with style. A very fun place to visit. I would recommend putting it in your rotation if you come out to Toronado.

For a fairly traditional brewbup, I am not sure there is one done better in the whole country. I stopped in for a late lunch. They had a good dozen or so taps of their own beer, almost half of them w/ a cask as an option. I was pleased to see many lower ABV beers on the cask too. (Cask IIPA is great but I believe this serving method to be best for session ales.) The food was standard gasto-pub type fare. I got a short rib sandwich and it is easily the best sandwich, burger, wrap or similar Iíve ever had a brewpub. The fries were above average too. The atmosphere in the early afternoon was fairly low key and I really loved the old bar look of the place. The servers were quite friendly and helpful and in general I really enjoyed stopping in for a few pints and a meal here. My only complaint from a beer perspective is maybe they could have done a few more guest drafts or perhaps had a guest on cask. Still, my primary reason to go to brewpubs is to drink the beer they brew there so that is only a small complaint.

great looking old saloon, little decor but great feel to the place. Only had one bar, a pale, & was not impresssed. Short rib sandwich was delicious. Cool place to stop, One block from corner of Haight & Ashbury
