This is very interesting place. Very personal and exciting. Good amount of interesting beers and beer garden is great. Some people in the next table were smoking something else than tobacco. Couple of other customers thought that I was from biker gang.

Great spot to drink some solid domestics, outside tables cant be beat. I did not eat any food. It looked pretty minimal.

Another dive bar with a better than average tap list. Great beer garden out the back. Place looks like shit on the inside. Beer selection was good, but not great - even as a European coming over, there was nowt to jump up and down about. Solid enough list though. Not much craic from the staff other than the doorman. Mixed crowd - bikers, suits, punks, goths, college lads, etc. Nice to see a varied bunch all drinking together. Had a nice couple of IPAs outside in the sun, but Iíll not be rushing back - thereís better to be had in this city.

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.

Love the moody alternative attitude of this place. Good beer selection, massive outdoor area complete with BBQ. This place is a San Fran must.

The scene at this place is interesting - an odd mix of metal and hipster that I havenít encountered before, but somehow works. Expect lots of young, tattooed people with a few middle-aged professionals mixed in. The beer list was solid, but the real highlight was the awesome beer garden out back. Great place to hang out.

Stopped in here for a couple of beers on a Sunday afternoon. Very loud metal indoors, and huge crowd outside in the beer garden. Very young crowd with lots of extracurricular activity happening. Beer selection was good and the bartenders were nice. Other than that, this is not my type of place.

Lovely dive bar down the dirty end of Valencia in SOMA, walked past it before evening noticing it was there. Good size with friendly heavily tattooed staff and clientelle, very SF punk crowd.. Draft beer list was very impressive and well priced by Sf standards.

Frankly, this place is way more my jam than Toronado. Russian River representation was Consecration vs. PtE at Toronado= point number 1 for Zeitgeist. Outdoor patio, way more friendly bar staff, and in my mind better selection (though Iím sure Toronado takes it for events and such). Still a really cool hangout, much better for the dive bar feel.
