Last stop of the night for me and my wife. Place is huge and spanish themed. Some type of spanish folk band playing and place was packed all the way to closing time. Had the ESB and IPA which were both average. Had a flat bread which had burnt chorizo but was still decent at this point of the night. Nice place for dinner and drinks, but there are better beer options in the city.

Place looked small at first, since it was packed almost to the doors and I was asked to find a place among the standing tables close to the doors. Noticed it was a lot bigger when using the restroom though. Tried 9 draught beers on a sampling plate, then had a rerun of one of thos beers together with a plate of fries. Not the cheap place, beers were OK to more than OK. It got very loud, perhaps due to the brick walls and the large amount of visitors. Not a must go Iíd say, but since it was the only brewpub I had time to visit in San Francisco I canít compare it to the other ones.

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.
