Visited June 6, 2013.

I was told about this place 5 years ago by some friends who used to travel to SF regularly. Iíve been meaning to check it out ever since but never got around to it. Glad I finally did.

Its similar to Toronado in that itís cash only, has a good tap selection, has decent music, and grumpy servers. The differences are that itís much more open, has a nice patio area, and does pitchers. When I was there they had half a dozen Ale Industries beers on tap. Got glasses of the Pink Drank (raspberry sour) and the Agent Ned Flanders (flemish bruin) and got a taste of the Evolution generation 5. Most of the people coming to the bar were getting pitchers of El Toro Poppy Jasper which was neat to see, and a few of them got pitchers of Stella. They also serve beer in quarts if you want more than a pint.

Perhaps my new favorite place in the city. Canít believe Iíve never come here before, kind of ashamed, actually. The bar itself is dark and not terribly large. Cash only, really divey. A huge list of taps covering all sorts of styles. Your obligatory Pliny and Moonlight handles and plenty of other good things from the Bay Area and California in general. Service was good, though the bar was a bit on the dead side. Step outside to the patio/beer garden and youíve got yourself a winner. Huge space with lots of picnic tables and trees, and youíre sort of under the overpass for 101.

Awesome place, that pretty much resembles a dive bar inside, and includes an expansive outdoor seating area. Taplist is quite extensive, featuring a few nice rarities and generally high quality taps. Service was very friendly and generous with free samples. Cash only unfortunately, but prices are reasonable. Recommended place.

Pretty awesome dive bar in SF that is very similar to my Chapel Hill favorite: Heís Not Here. A big dive bar with large amounts of outdoor pic-nic table seating. Taplist was fairly large and was in chalk (good thing) signifying quick keg rotation. RR Supplication pours were $8. Local, dank IPAs were $5-6. Service was incredible considering how wildly packed the place was- I loitered around in an area where a typical hoity toity bar would never give me service and magically we got everyoneís order in. Correct glassware, fresh kegs, local heavy selection. Now I know why this is the favorite bar amongst my UNC friends in SF. If you get tired of the snotty bartenders at Toronado, well here you go. Similarly impressive taplist.

Kind of a punk rock dive bar in San Francisco, but a lot of fun and a huge tap line up. Prices are fair. Large outdoor area, and even 2 pinball machines!

Hit this spot on a dive bar crawl I did one night post-conference. What you see is what you get. A large indoor area with a long bar down one side of the room. A great tap list with great prices. Not much to complain about.

Hipster beer garden. Very interesting place that has mostly widely available beers in pitchers, and bloody maryís. Great people watching, good prices, and some rare beers. Fun place to hang out, but I wouldnít expect crazy beers.

Absolutely loved this place. My type of bar. Great jukebox, great draft selection. Bear Republic, Russian River etc. Huge outdoor seating that was jamed. Little old lady selling Tamales. Loaded with walks of every kind. Suits, preps, punks, bikers everything. A true taste of what san Francisco is. Once of the best bars Iíve been to.

Iíve been coming here for a long time. They recently expanded the taps..I think 20+ beers on tap. Food is decent for a bar but kitchen closes early. Tons of seating but get there early. Prices are great for SF + a full liquor bar. The deathmetal is VERY loud so youíve been warned.

Visited on a Saturday evening in March 2016. The place was not crowded at all, probably because of the bad weather. I liked this place, it was rather dark but with a quick and friendly service. The selection was nice, 50 taps. I would love to sit in the beer garden during a nice summer evening. I also liked the fact that one was not allowed to take photos at this place.
