Visited during SF beer week. Dive bar feel, stickers on the wall with louder music playing. Quite a few taps, but not a lot of standouts. But to be fair it was beer week and there was a Speakeasy event happening and they may have had other tap takeovers happening throughout the week. Some bottles, but nothing special at all. Full bar, but run of the mill selection. Large outdoor seating area, that was kind of cool and the kitchen, or at least the grill portion of it, appeared to be outside as well. Service was fine, prices are good...worth a stop in.

Proper dive bar with punk playing. Very similar to tornado but much better and cleaner and friendlier. Norton mention the selection is unbelievable and much more diverse. They have anything you would feel like having on tap. Donít was your time with tornado go here instead if dives and punk is your thing.

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.

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.

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!

As others have said, place is a dive bar, lots of space, for San Francisco, then you get outside, wow, very large outdoor area. Took a couple minutes to get bartenders attention, but it was somewhat busy. decent tap list, didnít check out bottles. Didnít have food. pool table a games in the back area of bar. Not a family place and we did feel a tad out of place, no one was hostile or anything, but it was mostly a crowd younger us, Iím mid 40ís, it was like someone else said, bike messenger younger crowd, was loud music both in and out, in the metal varietal. The outdoor area is right buy an overpass so might explain loud music. On a nice weather day, be good place to hang. Not a family place.

This is an awesome dive bar with a huge outdoor area for a serious session. No need to be snobby but if you are thereís no need to worry. They have something you will like to drink a lot of.

This place has a nice tap list and a huge beer garden. I didnít notice anything terribly rare or exciting from a beer perspective but, most definitely, if you are happy to drink a primarily local list of great beer in a very cool beer garden, youíll like it here.

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.

Ok, you donít go here if you want perky waitresses that will faun all over you. This is a bar and has great beer at a good price. I was here in November 2011. I had a wonderful afternoon. The doorman was surly, as were the bartenders, but they were also pleasant. They have bike parking in the beer garden. Another great aspect of this place is the beer garden and inside/outside food counter. Standard bar food, cheap. The pool table is level and in good shape.
Metal on the speakers at 3pm on a Friday, and a electric fireplace in the middle of the room near the door and the bar. It is worth a visit.
