Small bar-restaurant located a short BART journey from the tourist centre of SF. Nice laid back atmosphere and friendly, knowledgeable staff. 23 taps of mostly CA breweries: Russian River, Moonlight, Alesmith, North Coast and the Bruery amongst others. Bottle list is quite extensive and includes some interesting beers, but it is a touch pricy. Food was really tasty - I opted for the scallops & mussels with a spicy ale broth. An all-round great venue for beer and food in SF.

Pretty good food and beer selection, but it is going to cost you. Not in the best location. More of a restaurant that a bar, so if you think of it as a restaurant instead of an awesome beer bar, it is pretty good. If you pay attention you will find something really rare on tap, but mostly common beer (among the SF beer geek places).

Another great local spot shared by some locals. I love this part of town, very fun. The place was packed when we got there, and I hear itís always pretty busy, but we managed to get some counter space and stools. Thereís a pretty impressive selection of draft and bottled beers, although the prices were pretty steep for some. The food, however, was damn good, from what I sampled. Had a fantastic pretzel with spicy mustard, and some of the best french fries Iíve had in a long time. A very fun place.

Such a wonderful establishment with some great burgers and mac and cheese. I believe they have at least 20 taps and easily over a hundred in bottles. The beer list is printed out and put on clipboards which are at the bar. Food is great (but a tad pricey) and the beer selection ranges the entire spectrum from $100 bottles to Grandpaís Suds - a can of Olympia!

The beer bar I go to when in SF and need food. Good to great selection of beers, both domestic and global. Foodís interesting if pricy.
My only real issue is the size: itís not a big place, and itís usually full. Been by four times, had to take off twice for lack of room.
Great place, though.

Respectable tap and bottle list.
Friendly staff, beautiful facility. Probably feels a little tight when its busy. Food was pretty good. Beers were quite expensive and the cost for me is enough to avoid but if money is not an issue--this place is beautiful.

I went here yesterday with my cousin who lives in the neighborhood. I rated a new quad for me and had a really tasty turkey burger with blue cheese. Nice vibe and awesomely cool staff. A little small, but a nice vibe for an afternoon lunch.

Unsuspecting place with a very respectable tap list. Relaxed atmosphere and decor as well as a knowledgeable staff -- especially Sayer. Will definitely stop by again the next time Iím in the area.

Yet another unobtrusive and wonderful beer destination in SF, one of my top three visits from a recent trip. Beautiful old space with high ceilings, lustrous mahogany everywhere, and a wonderful tiled floor. Doors open, pleasant breezes, and a very convivial crowd made this a pleasant afternoonís hangout. Did not try the food but it looked terrific. Plentiful taps, local and elsewhere well represented. My bartender, Kathy, was so super cool. She was extremely knowledgeable about brews and gave me several ace pointers, generous samples, and general good conversation. I ended up enjoying some Moonlight products, which were delightful. Donít sleep on this place, a real winner.

Had lunch here. Decent food though a limited lunch menu. Great beer list, both tap and bottle selection. Prices are higher than some other drinking establishments, but not completely unreasonable. Up to date lists are impressive - got a new beer menu while I was half way through lunch. Decent service, proper glassware, and an eclectic selection.
