Cheeseburger Tuesdays, next door, til they run out. Amazing taps and bottles here, and they never run out. Place filled up very quickly on a Tuesday around lunchtime, but still the bartender (Johnnie) was friendly, helpful, fast, and gave out samples left and right. Scruffy, with that lived-in look. Great bathroom graffiti. What more can you ask for?

Visited on a Tuesday night in November 2015. Dive bar on Haight St, great range of beer on, music pumping and decent service. Sat in the back room which was fairly quiet, tried a couple of good beers. It’s a good place to go visit but think other places in the city are better.

Do I even need to say anything? Simply the best damn beer bar I’ve ever visited. Awesome staff, knew their shit, awesome crowd with some nice dogs in attendance, I like that they allow pets :) Great beer, great happy hour prices... I left there floating from the awesome beer and a lighter wallet. Wish I could visit every day. My longsleeve shirt is awesome.

Visited at least a dozen times Thanksgiving 2008.

I wont rant too much about the really shitty service, just know that if they treat you like dirt you can send it back and also not tip. You can always get a glass of Pliny and a couple of ticks, the jukebox has some good music on it, and Cable Car is always available if you’re looking for an expensive sour beer.

No food served but you can bring outside food in. Check out Rosemunde next door. Prices on draft are good, prices on bottles suck.

I’ll keep going back.

A dive with some sticky surfaces, which is expected if you know of the place. Service was surprisingly good. Selection was fantastic, although bottle list at other locations is much better. Half pours and no flights. Prices were decent for what they were offering. A good spot where there is no pretense.

The infamous/world famous Toronado. It’s really not much different from your average dive bar, other than they happen to have some really good beers. The tap list is always solid, the bartenders can be a little bit surly, but I don’t think I’ve ever had a problem. Prices are good, especially for San Francisco. Atmosphere is dark, smelly, and loud. Definitely an experience if you’ve never been before. No food and cash only.

Came by for a few visits during my SF stay. Dunno man, I just reckon Toronado rocks. From my limited experience here everyone was pretty cool. Great beers, surly staff, byo food, happy hour Pliny, chatty locals, good music, beery paraphernalia all over the place, dive atmosphere. Loved it.

Compared to the San Diego location, this is more like a rustic dive bar. Tap selection is solid, though there wasn’t anything crazy / special on draught. Bottle list wasn’t very interesting, surprisingly. Servers have a bit of attitude, but are generally helpful. Prices are reasonable. No food served, but you can bring your own food inside. Worth a stop, but definitely an overrated place.

Interesting. I finally made the drive to check the place out after hearing all the hype. It is certainly the dive that it says, but I actually had a good experience with the bartenders. What confused me was the taplist. After hearing about how great this place was I guess I expected something rather unique, but they had about 6 Sierra Nevada and 4 Anchor beers on tap, and in general I think I could have bought all but about 5 of them at my local Bevmo. I prefer the taplist at the Refuge in Santa Carlo to here. Maybe it was just today, will need to try again. Bottle list was short and interesting. Great prices, but nothing really reached out and grabbed me. Good, not great, beer bar. Slight bump because I got Cable Car from them :)

Visisted in Sep ’08. Great selection - 53 taps from memory good mix of beers. The bar didn’t cope with all the taps so half a dozen or so were in a little overspill cupboard to the side of the bar. Dive bar atmosphere but fine - passed the girlfriend test anyhow. Bar tender was a miserable fucker to start with but seemed to warm to us!
