About 50 taps: 4 are cask beers. Great selection representing California (and other US) craft beers, with some very nice Belgian and European selections as well. Not the biggest selection Iíve seen, but certainly one of the best. No BS place serving great beers in an unpretentious atmosphere. Hundreds of tap handles, beer glasses, stickers, etc. decorate the walls. Dozens of empty 3L Duvel bottles lined up along back wall. Seems like CBGBs would have been like this had it been a beer bar. Service is not warm, but is generally very good.

A must stop for beer lovers in San Francisco. Crowded and noisy, but the draft beer selection is outstanding. I had an Anchor Old Foghorn and Drakeís Russian Imperial Stout, among others. Not to be missed.

Toronado is a definite must for any enthusiast visiting San Fran. Smaller place that gets a bit cramped on the weekend nights, and bar access can be tough. Somewhat reminds me of the old Liarís Club scene in Mission Beach. But they have a great tap list and a broad cellar list that makes up for it. They always carry some bomb RR stuff, and the bottle menu will send you home with something.

I love this place. I go there often as I work a mere 3 min. walk from it, and Iíve never been disappointed. The service is not the best, thatís true, but the beer selection is. So many choices from so many acclaimed breweries, and is the only place Iíve seen an Alesmith beer on tap in NorCal (Speedway Stout. Yum). Grab a sausage next door at Rosamunde and stick around. Its always an enjoyable experience.

Toronado has been built up as a beer mecca in San Fran. This was a must see on our list while in town for a short period of time. We were so dissapointed. Now donít get me wrong they have one of the best beer offerings Iíve ever come across. The problem was the bartender wasnít pleased to serve them to you. Definetly an interesting neighborhood and neat for any out of towner but once inside the fun stopped. The place is about as big as my walk in closet and dark and dirty. The bartender reminds of Seinfeldís Soup Nazi. Know what you want to order and have cash in hand!! One of the biggest positives was that they didnít offer food but you could bring in food from outside. I scored some of the best BBQ Iíve ever had from across the street. Toughed it out long enough to grab lunch and dinner, loved the food so much. Canít say much about Toronado, go in with low expectations and you may come away happy. Beer selection is to die for, I could do without the staff.

A beer paradise! Always something interesting to try. Funky atmosphere. Mostly knowledgable beer drinkers found here. Service will vary, and patience is necessary until your server deems you worthy. Grab a sausage next door and hang out for awhile.

I expected Toronado to be bigger after hearing all the hype. I went on a wednesday evening, and there wasnít a seat in site, but they had several good beer on tap!

I was here on 27 April 07. Quaint part of town. No Food Available. Ate at Memphis Minnieís across the street. seems to mostly locals in the place. Large amounts of handles and 4 pumps. No Tabs, No Cards!, the bartender told me. Dogs are apparently welcome. One tore the shit out of box over in the corner. Long lines of old dusty Duval Mags along the walls. It was kinda dark inside, and a lot small than I imagined. Bartender was extremely knowledgeable, just NOT friendly towards me.

Great place for itís selelction alone. Russian River, Port Brewing, and Foghorn from Anchor are just a few, and their glasses suited each beer pretty well. The bartender was busy as hell but still had time to answer a few of my questions. Met a few other travelers, and the locals I spoke to were quite friendly. The tap handles from their past selections that are hanging from the walls made me drool. Maybe theyíre not retired, just standing by to be put back in service. Iíll stop by this place every time Iím in the area.

Walked here form 21st Amendment via Market and passing by the Capitol building. An amazingly scenic walk. Highly recommended if you donít mind hoofing it. This place feels as big as a walk in closet. We were fortunate to get seats at the bar. There are tap handles everywhere lining the walls. Opposite the bar are dozens of Duvel 1.5L bottles (empty). Being that this is the west coast barleywine festival event I wrongly assumed Iíd find some barelywines on the tap list. So Russian River Blind Pig and Pliney the Elder were the call. I heard someone order up one by just saying ďIíll take a Pliney.Ē It was nice to see Anchor Porter on cask. I should have hung around long enough to try it. Being October they had lots of unique German and Oktoberfest tap offerings.
