Not a bad little brewpub. All the beers are their own and a diverse enough of a range to be interesting. A couple of the bar tenders were as fast as lightning. I mentioned casually to my brother I hadnít tried one of the beers and no sooner had I said it a sampler appeared before me. The cocktail guy is fun to watch. The last time I was in their the atmosphere was electric, but that was during the World Series.

A fun place to go. Very popular with the locals. Food and organic beers are excellent.

Cool urban space with tons of room (and they fill it up too). The food all looks so good. I ended up not trying any of their house beers since they had the SF Brewers Guild Imperial Common I wanted to try. I need to get back here soon.

A huge place with red brick wall and a long bar in light brown wood and high tables also in light brown wood. 9 own beers on draft when I visited, from experimental that I didnít fancy to nice ones.

Nice enough place. Big space, with nice staff. Did not try the food. Beers tasted good at first, but nearly all of them had a slightly acidic finish and several had noticable amounts of diacetyl. I am wondering if they have line cleaning issues. Most were still drinkable, just a nagging aftertaste that I doubt should be there. Sampler of 9 beers is $10, much better that the $22 for 7 beers at 21st Amendment.

Have to disagree with most ratings. Enjoyed the place. Beers were good, and the 9 glass taster allowed me to try the average as well as their spectacular cask conditioned ale. Food portions were small (tapas style) but everyhting we had was high quality. Price was high end, but this is downtown San Fran! Very clean place, good service.

Nice long bar with a view of the tanks. Seemed more of a yuppie crowd. The food was good but small portions. The steak was very good, but I expected a meal not a piece of meat! The beer was mostly mediocre except for one of their specials (Spirit of St George) which was very tasty.

A nice place, central location, about 9 beers on tap. The decor is horrible, like a 1950s dance club. The IPA was really nice. Didnít eat here. I had two strippers sitting next to me discussing stripping- interesting. Worth the visit.

Had lunch here during a conference. Laid back atmosphere and good service. Lots of beers to try, but nothing spectacular. The Golden Stave was a favorite here. The food was good, but a tad overpriced for what I got. Convenient to Moscone convention center.

Just south of the downtown area. Modernish place with standard brewpub food served - didnít buy any the two times Iíve been here. Kind and alert staff, yet getting to know what exactly is on the cask tap is difficult at best or just impossible. Beers are good and solid. Unfortunately they only do one size: full 20 oz but they do a sample set.
