    One of the best draft lists in the city—they have lots of (good) things I haven't seen elsewhere.

    Start your weekend off with after-work drinks at the Amsterdam Cafe. Give their craft beers a go, you'll certainly find something you like from their collection of 350 bottled and 25 on tap. Read more

    Always offering a fantastic beer selection, Amsterdam is one of my favorite beer spots in SF. If they have the Habanero infused Sculpin IPA from Ballast when you visit, I highly recommend it.

    Kind of a small bar with a nice bartender. She broke a pint glass though (too drunk to work?). Nice place to chill if you have a lot of time, but definitely not a date place
