On the corner of Haight & Masonic in the heart of Haight-Ashbury, stands the magnificent Magnolia brewpub. Hand pointed murals and a well-lived in look, this is a comfy hippy place to go and hangout for good eats and beer whenever you land in SF. Flights of their brewed beers are available. The food menu is above pub fare. While I was there, I had their delicious Cuban sandwich and a sampler of their their Kalifornia Kolsch, Proving Ground IPA, Spud Boyís IPA, Prescription Pale, Blue Bell Bitter, Saraís Ruby Mild, and Cole Porter. There was no Stout of circumstance (boo!) unfortunately.

Why is this a great, stupendous, over the top, magnificent, ... "place"? The food is great, and there are fantastic real ales. Which, unfortunately, I continually fail to take notes upon. Go and enjoy. Take notes and rate. Mea culpa.

I went there to grab a bite to eat before i hit Toronado. Variety of beers where up to standards, and can definetly be enjoyed with any meal on the menu. I would make it a must to grab a bite to eat here 1st or last.

Iím not old enough to be nostalgic about the 60s, and Iíd rather it be dead quiet when Iím drinking rather than listen to the Grateful Dead - so I canít say Iím at all a fan of the decor or the background music here, completely hippified outside location or not. I went with a group of friends and tried most of what they were drinking and was pretty unimpressed (beers were all pretty bland, almost watery, nothing special), though for a small brewpub they did have a decent selection. Tried some fries and they were all right. Next time Iím in town Iíd rather just do my beer drinking at Toronado.

Great place, this is. Magnolia was packed when I arrived on a Thursday night at 8 pm. But, the service was good, and the food was awesome. I had the best fried chicken of my life here, donít miss it. As stated, The overall feel of the place is straight of the 60ís, but come on, itís on the corner of Haight and Masonic, anything else would be a let down. Unfortunately, outside of the Proving Ground IPA (which was awesome), the beers were pretty weak. The Triple was pretty good, as was the Pale Ale, but other than that, the beers were kinda gross. Still, an enjoyable place, and definitely worth visiting.

Had a great time there. It was a nice trip on the mass transit. Took the cable car to the underground train and then out to Height Ashbury. Back to the 60ís or the late 80ís was what it felt like. An old brew pub if ever there a must stop and a great place to visit. The beers where great and the food was also good, Be ready for some hippie food that is served by a great wait staff. Talked with the manager and she was great found out a lot about the brewery and they where about to show off some great beers. We had a real nice time and will go back when in town. Stop by and have a Saison De lily and just think of the 60ís while there. To Jerry we raised a pint.

None of their really cool beers were on. The Haight areaís hippie shtick is so thick it descends into self-parody and Magnolia drips with it. Small space. Beers not really good. Casks were in poor to mediocre shape - flat and lifeless. Didnít eat. Service a touch slow but not too horrible overall. Still, felt more like a brunch spot than a brewpub and the beers didnít dissuade me from that feeling.

Neat spot. Open area divided up, I sat by the large windows and watched the eclectic groups of people wander by on Haight. The service was fast and friendly and the selection was great - I think there were at least 8-10 house brews on tap and 2 on cask. The food menu was an interesting brunch selection, but I appreciated the emphasis on local stuff. The beers were solid English style ales as well. I really enjoyed it here and would go back in a second.
