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.

Visited the 12th February 2015 - Between Mission and the Downtown, you will find the Zeitgeist. Ambiance is heavy metal and stoner with good beer and cocktails. All what I like ! I have been there for the event : Anderson Valley during the beer week. The selection of beer is really amazingg with 50 taps, I thinks itís the biggest selection on tap I have never seen! Price are nice and service is clean. The staff is really friendly as the people inside. The place is not so clean but itís ok and you will like the beer garden outside! Really exclusive for San Francisco! A good place if you like good beer and heavy metal. The place is on the same philosophy as the Toronado.

Finally visited the other night with a friend. As most have noted - the interior reminds me of Toronado. Dive bar with a huge Taplist that smells like good beer and Murphyís Oil soap. The obvious main attraction is the covered outdoor beer garden, which is a great place to spend a cool SF evening over some great beer. Selection was inflated due to the start of SF Beer Week, but as I understand it, itís usually great anyway.

First stop of in our USA trip and boy did this place kick start a month of loose craft beer times! Came here on a Saturday afternoon and the beer garden was pumping. Pitchers of sculpin to get things going. Great vibe and atmosphere. Everyone was so friendly. Craft and good vibes work so well. Go here instead of Toronado!!

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.

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.
