Walked here from 21st Amendment via Toranado. They had about six house brews on tap. The two I had were good. Death and Taxes was better than good, it was good-er. Nice comfy place in the middle of Lower Haight. There is a cool mural running along the wall below the ceiling. I enjoyed thumbing through Michael Jackson books at the bar. I wasnít too hungry so I figured a sandwich would be the call. Then I saw the sandwich sitting at the kitchen window. Holy cow. Is that mountain of food the sandwich? Yep, wow. Huge and tasty. If I was really hungry this meal would max me out including the delicious potato salad and I tip the scales at 230lbs.

I met up with mwsf here for a couple of pints on a Thursday night. Located on the corner of Haight, this place is relatively small and quaint. They have a patio and some booths as well as a couple of stools at the bar. Behind the bar is an amazingly ornate and aesthetically captivating mural, which is rather psychadelic. It goes with all of the phish and grateful dead music they play. They had a very nice selection of beers on tap with about 3-4 cask ales. Unfortunatlely, the cask mild ale that I had was sour and infected. I did not have to food, but it looked pretty good. The bathrooms are very small and dumpy. Sinks are located exteriorly. This place is ok, but it has a lot of better competition, which makes it appear worse than it really is.

Part of our Haight Street pub crawl. Comfortably charming, if a little low-key and on the mellow side. Decent selection of brews made on the premises, with a good half-dozen or so available from casks. You can order a tasting selection created to your liking. Service was friendly and relaxed. Didnít try the food.

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.
