Visited once in 2011 and again on March 19, 2013.
This place is another of the bars that doesnt have a killer beer list but always has something good, no matter what. The difference is that here it is quiet and comfortable and theyíve got your stereotypical San Francisco fancy food. I had the Stromboli, which was good but pretty small, and a glass of Supplication. Last time I was here I found some random Sierra Nevada beer made with sourdough yeast that wasnt bad. They also have a nice bottle collection in the fridge.
Service is friendly, the atmosphere is calm and also friendly, tap prices are still somewhat reasonable ($6 for a pint of Blind Pig but I paid $9 for my tulip of Supplication).
The concept of opening at 3:14 every day is kind of neat as is their weird "happy hour" thing that they call –r^2 at 6:28 every night. Despite that itís still in an area that I just dont go to very often.

Went here for a friendís surprise birthday party. As sort of a math guy, I appreciate what theyíre doing here. They open at 3:14 and incorporate 3.14 into specials and stuff like that.
This place bills itself as a beer and pizza establishment. The pizza is very good. The base price isnít bad, but they absolutely REAM you for toppings. There are no combo deals, and veggie toppings cost $2.50 each while meat toppings cost an obscene $4.50 apiece. We ordered a large pizza with 4 meat toppings after having a few beers and were horrified to see it came out to $38! Most expensive pizza Iíve ever had.
The beer selection is a little better than decent. There are about 11 taps, featuring beers like Supplication, Blind Pig, and Death & Taxes when I was there. Taps are almost all local beers whereas bottles are predominantly Belgians. Beer prices are about average for the city.
The atmosphere is pretty divey, without too much decor. Relaxing place to hang out on a Sunday afternoon when not too many people are around.
Service is pretty friendly and attentive. Of course, us drunkards were the only people in the bar at 4pm on a Sunday. More people started coming in around 5 or 6.
Overall, not a bad place. Iím sure Iíll be back at some point. Far from one of my favorites though.
