Visited several times after hitting SF Brewing and then twice more recently.

Despite what a lot of people have to say about Rogue beers here this place is pretty cool. Right on the edge of North Beach and on a main street with several bus routes going right by here. What I like about the place is that they have something like 20 Rogue beers on tap. Sitting at the bar is easier for getting flights of things but the tables are good too if you have a lot of people in your group. Just be warned that the tap list in the back room isnt always up to date; I guess they have a decent turn over.

Service is friendly but sometimes hard to get ahold of. They get pretty busy certain times of the day. Prices are reasonable and Iíve heard on your birthday theyíll give you a free beer.

Came here a few times during a Sep í08 visit to San Fran. Rogue only beers (from memory) which do a job but are nothing special but the atmposphere was really good here and we made friends with some of the locals, hence coming back a few times. Service was good, generous with the hard liqour pours for my girlfriend. Food was adequate bar fayre. Wouldnít go out of the way for this place tbh - but we enjoyed it and I wasnít ticking in 2008 so happy to drink the same thing over and again!

This place is pretty much a classic. If Rogue beers do not impress me as much as they once did, itís still a real pleasure to hesitate between 20 or so of them and 2 casks to boot. The service was friendly and helpful, the location is prime by Washington Square and the patrons seem to be mainly locals. I was a bit surprised that pints would come up to 6$ a pop, but I guess this goes with the location. Not a particularly pretty place, but it has the merit of feeling like a brewpub.

Itís a long hike from the Montgomery BART, but the SF Brewing Company is about halfway there (take a map - you could miss Rogue while walking up Columbus unless you look over your left shoulder when you reach the park). Itís smaller than the Eugene and Issaquah houses, and doesnít seem to have the bottle selection either. A lot of the bottles were alternates, so you need your ratebeer list which tells you what Yellow Snow really is. They had two Eugenes and a couple of Issaquahs (including Menage a Frog) in bottles. The ales were decent as ever, and the cheese bread and black bean dip were delicious (after a long walk in light and medium drizzle). If you make it to the SF Brewing venue, itís worth the extra hike to get here. Staff was attentive.

Solid Rogue bar that we only stopped at by chance because it was open on Xmas Day. Good selection of Rogue beers, and equally as many guest beers, but they are nothing special. Prices are okay and service is very attentive. Really nice interior ambience. Wouldnít really recommend it for the beer, but if youíre staying in the area, itís an obvious choice.

This barís worn furniture and carpets are really not inviting, giving the place an abandoned atmosphere. The waitress brought me the wrong beer even though I pointed to it on the board after she had asked me to repeat my order. Apparently, she had never heard "Drakeís" before. The food we got was filling but generic. Standard pub fare, but nothing really fresh. Iím kind of surprised they seem to specialize in Kobe beef... Rogue beers are often very good, so this place is fun for those, like me, who love some of their beers, but it is a rather unimpressive place to bring your friends.

Enjoyable place, with friendly service, if a bit uninformed, and as noted below, an outdated chalkboard (25% innacurate), but with the bonus of having the XS line (Stout and I2PA). Good bottle selection for take out, but overpriced, compared to bottle shops.

Late evening on Sunday 3rd Feb 2013: the 49ers had earlier blown the Super Bowl and this place was subdued and fairly quiet apart from one table full of collage kids who had to shout because they appeared too pissed to talk. The joint is basic and wooden: as are the pieces of furniture. Chalk Board high up behind the bar tells you whatís on: when I asked for a ZIA Fireside Chat I got blank looks, my eye sight is so bad and the writer of the chalk board so crap it had 21A (as in 21st Amendment) looking like ZIA: oh how we laughed. The staff loved me, even got some free crisps, or whatever Americans call them. Anyway my wife and I shared 6 different beers and had a very pleasant stay, chairs could have done with some cushions though.

Interesting little stop in North Beach. Long bar with quite a few Rogue and guest taps. Tons of aliases as to be expected, but some beers I havenít had before. Stuff from their Issaquah and Green Dragon breweries. Also had the full line of Rogue Spirits, which was fun to try. Guest taps were pretty good as well (some local, some not). Didnít try the food. Bartenders seemed knowledgeable about what they were serving and seemed to like their products. A decent stop.

Somewhat like the Rogue Public House in Portland. Packed to the gills on a Friday night- lots of beer offerings that are all available on a sampler tray. Cool atmosphere. Young folks. Fun time. Hope to be back soon.
