Kind of a dive. Good selection and low prices, but the blaring heavy metal, aggressive tender, and crowd kind of make it hard to sit and enjoy the subtleties of some of the brews.

Been there during a visit of San Francisco. A very rustic Pub atmosphere, but thatís how I like it! It was quite crowded, but the barkeeper always served us quite fast. Selection is nice and international, but also some locals - many people come here for Pliny I guess. Seeing a 2014 Cable Car bottle for 60$ to drink on the premises is not that nice. Taps are pretty cheap for CA. Paid 5$ for the Pliny I had during Happy Hour, would have been 6 otherwise. Definitely one of *the* places to check out in San Francisco.

Went there years ago and remember it well. Lots of craft beers on the chalkboard and busy with a wide variety of folks. Not the cheapest place around but pretty good for picking out craft beer selections.

Been here twice and its a great bar in San Francisco. The selection is very good, I only concentrated on the taps. Pliny the Elder for $5.Very crowded at 11:30am.Exactly like I expected it would be. I will be coming back as often as I can!

Visited the 13th February 2015 - This place on Haight Street looks as an institution on the city. With 50 beers on tap, the selection is impressive with beers for all peoples. I was there for the Pliny the Elder on tap. The ambiance is heavy rock and noisy. There is a jukebox where people can play music to get a louder noise atmosphere. People and service is really friendly inside. Price are nice and friendly. About the decoration, the place looks dark and a little bit dirty but thatís may people come! As I wrote on the Zeitgeist. Tornado and Zeitgeist have the same atmosphere.

Dive bar. This is a rock bar, donít come here if youíre dainty or delicate. Good beer list from mild to wild. Also a bottle list. Prices are great. No food, but Rosamunde next door sells sausages and you can bring them in.

A bit disappointed. Draft list was okay. Cash only which is a hassle. Bartender is in your face but in a nice way? Not too many bottles available worth getting. Maybe I caught them at a bad moment, but Toronado SD has been much better expierences imo.

Visited Friday night. Seems more like a nostalgic place than an up-to date spot. Selection is OK, nothing really amazing. Had 4 casks which is nice. No food whatsoever, service was not that pleasant, but i guess thatís like it is when itís packed. Itís nice for a first visit, but I donít think Iíll come back, there are other good places in town.

This place is fucking overrated...yeah they have a cool beer list with russian river etc on tap and its fucking cheap but the staff are rude and the ambiance is so out dated and boring. Good beer doesnt make a place, needs atmosphere...
