Visited on a Wednesday evening in November 2015. Itís a short walk from 9th/Iriving stop on N Tram route from the City Centre. 2 levels of seating, we sat at the bar and tried a sampler tray. Also had a cask special of the Stout conditioned with chilli which was offered as a free sample. Tried all the beers brewed at the venue, even swapped one weíd tried for an off piste choice. Decent guest list from local brewers too.
Bar staff were really friendly and pointed out the brewer as could see we were into beer.
Really nice place, worth the trek out to it. Highly recommended.

Kind of a neat little brew pub. There was a reasonable number of brews on tap, but they were heavy on the lighter beers like saisons and pils. Only one IPA at the time I visited. The porter and the pale ale I had were good, and the food was good as well.

Love the ambience, nice wood ceiling, nice long bar. Beer selection ok. -a couple on the list out. Service a bit unattentive but friendly.

Stopped by after a Giants game today. This place is typical of a lot of SF bars/restaurants,narrow and long. Nicely shaped bar and the brewing equipment sits up stairs behind glass. Tried one of the IPAís, a saison, and a couple of different entree items. The saison was a collaboration with a winery, and was very good. Overall a very pleasant experience with above average beer and service.

Visited during SF beer week, day after the Strong Beer event and all beers were still on. Nice space, good size by SF standards Iíd say. Brewery is upstairs and behind glass so the brewhouse and tanks are visible. Walls were mostly brick and bar was wood and glass, nice feel. Bartender was nice, accommodating and poured us a couple of tastes then hooked us up with a strong beer sampler. Beers were solid with no flaws and we ended up ordering a couple of pints after we finished our sampler. They also had a full bar and food, but didnít have or even look at a list for either. Worth visiting for sure.

Stopped in a number of times since the week they opened. The first time I stopped in during lunch shortly after they opened. The door was open but the business was not. The brewer was upstairs brewing and asked if I needed anything. I said I wanted to try the beers so he came downstairs, left the mash alone for a few minutes, and poured me a few ounces of each beer and told me about them. Nice guy.
Since then Iíve been back probably 4 times during business hours. They now do what they call Strong Beer Social during SF Beer Week which coincides (but is not affiliated with) Strong Beer Month that Magnolia and 21A do.
The food is pretty good though expensive. The service is nice but can be overwhelmed. The beers arent bad. Actually I havent had any BAD beers from them but Iím still waiting for them to amaze me with one of their beers.
I was here when it had just changed from Eldoís Cafe to Wunderbier and I have to say that Social Kitchen seems to be doing much better than either of those places.

Small brewpub not far from Golden Gate park. Only a handful of beers on tap, most of which were just sort of okay. Supposed to be a pretty good restaurant. Flights are free, which I didnít know until I went to leave, so I just left what cash I did have at the bar. Really nice interior and friendly staff.

Went here for dinner and not really for beer with some friends who were in from out of town, but your old buddy Tick did not disappoint. Translation: I ticked every beer available here. So what if I had to beg my friends to sample the obligatory 2oz of their mediocre Kolsch? Such is the plight of a man who must tick. So this is a nice place. A nice big bar, ample table seating, and a friendly vibe. Great place if youíre looking to SOCIALize, believe it or not. The waitress gave us great service, possibly because she sort of knew my friend, who used to do the hibbidy-jibbidy with her friend (yes I just used that ridiculous term). The food was pretty legit - mainly slightly upscale bar food. Solid burgers and whatnot, with a lot of tasty fried stuff. The brews here leave a bit to be desired. Most are passable but few are noteworthy. They had some kind of símores stout that sounded really awesome, but the execution just didnít live up to the billing. Overall this is a place you come for the ambiance and food and possibly to knock off a couple ticks, not to be wowed by outstanding beers.

Visited during SF strong beer week. They had 5 beers on tap that were all >8.2%, and good solid beers. The food was good. Staff was friendly and helpful. At first I got a sampler but noticed that 2 beers were the same and another was not in the correct order. The waitress smelled the beers and came to the same conclusion and got me the correct beers. I also had an few pints after the sampler. It is located near the UCSF campus.
