I really didn’t expect such a tiny beer shop! Apart from that, I liked their selection, but I would have liked a few more breweries to be well covered. They have a few taps, but they weren’t running the day I visited. The ambiance doesn’t really call for sitting down here and enjoying a few brews, unless you like to do that in your usual convenience store, but I admit these taps might make a nice icebreaker with the friendly owners. There doesn’t seem to be many more good beer stores in SF proper, so I would definitely come back here, but when you compare it to Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa (for example), this one might be disappointing.

Nice place to stop by if you r in the area, they have few rare stuff too try, I had fantom dark white when was there, good selection of rare beers too. Most then I already had so not too exciting.

Nice to finally make it here, after hearing about it for so long. Seems to be the place to go for Alesmith. Nice vibe, solid draft list, and a nice selection for such a small space. Prices are a little high on some things, but it wouldn’t surprise me if they had stuff other places don’t have. Picked up MS Mayhem, Fantome Dark White, and an ipa from NW.

For out-of-towners (indeed, out-of-hemispherers), this was a sensational introduction to West Coast craftbrwers. A veritable smorgasboard of options... all of which delighted. Well worth seeking out in SF.

Looks like a grocery store when you first pass by. I need parking if you want me to buy multi-bottles. Enter, and 2 coolers and several shelves of beer; a few tables, a small bar. What’s on tap? Had to ask tap by tap, gave up quickly, as objective was to get several bottles for hotel room stay. Bout half the bottles were Belgians, Quebec beers I have had. The other half included some very hard-to-gets had had me drooling. Took the best of the lot, a small percentage of my wish list. Almost everything was sold out, the Net List being quickly out of date.

City Beer was sort of hard to find for an out of towner, and smaller than I envisioned but well worth the visit. RacerX, AND Marin Brass Knuckle on Tap! A fantastic SOCAL and NORCAL bottle selection including RR Temptation, and several Cascade Beers. A must visit when in SF.

A nice place tucked away on a side st. Had a good selection, it didn’t blow me away, but good. About 5 taps, which helps the buying experience. The staff were really nice. AleSmith Decadence, Consecration, Cascade Sours, Pliny, lots of Belgians. A small but nice place.

The owner and his wife were the nicest, friendliest, and most accomdating hosts that I have encountered in a bar setting. Customers can sample any beer at the retail price, plus a dollar "corkage" fee...fantastic!

Unbelievable place. Ridiculous selection of world-class beers, a half-dozen or so taps to enjoy while browsing, and great service.

Stopped here for some draughts and to pick up some bottles. Great service from Beth (co-owner) and the tap selection, while small, was top notch. Great bottle selection at very reasonable prices. This rivals Toronado but has a more relaxed vibe to it - less touristy. I would definitely put this on the ’must visit’ list.

This place has an amazing selection, in terms of bottle selection. Two main coolers with multiple doors. A non-refrigerated section towards the back (and 2nd cooler). A couple of taps, but this place was way too small and crowded for me to consider staying longer than it took me to grab my beers, pay, and get the fuck out. Plenty of Supplication left, for those of you looking. Nice variety of beers. The best selection in San Francisco, as far as I am concerned. Servers were cool, and were able to get me out quickly. I could imagine getting here early, claiming a spot and having a good time, but after the early drinker arrive, if you want a spot consider yourself S.O.L. Great place for purchasing, not so much for drinking. Prices were in line with everywhere else.
