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.

A super cool dive/beer bar that is perfect for a weekend afternoon drunk. Huge outdoor area, good music, and a good beer selection. A must on a sunny day.

Visited during a recent trip to SF, and a place I never would have found if I hadnít been hanging out with a few friendly locals willing to show me some good drinking spots. It was fairly dark, dank, and busy on a Thursday night, but the selection was pretty good and the service was fast. The outdoor patio was great, itís a nice atmosphere to hang out, drink, and watch people. A great local spot.

My favorite beer bar in the city. Always a few really good micros and local seasonals on tap, but pitchers are cheap and the company is good. Sierra Nevada and a couple of the other local micros test out new taps here, making the selection even more interesting. Last time I was here there was a Sierra Nevada impy stout, two months prior to the Anniversary bottle release of the same beer. Bartenders are wicked skillful pulling multiple taps at a time and mixing up complex drinks in between. The courtyard with its communal tables is usually packed with boisterous, gregarious revelers. An unforgettable SF mission experience almost every visit.
