    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.

    The perfect bar for conversations and great beer selection. Always chill and friendly. Small patio too. One of my very favorites in the city.

    Best beer selection I've ever seen. The Serpent's Stout is out of this world. This is by far my favorite bar in SF.

    Great beer list, cartoons playing on the TVs, and awesome eclectic music (new wave, country, R&B, rock, etc.). This place is perfect.

    Lots of cider and lambic choices for people like myself who don't usually like the taste of traditional beers. And lots of other beers for people who love beer.

    An amazing selection of beer, but don't tell anyone about this place. It is remarkably wanker-free at this time.

    Cash only. High alky beers served in 10oz pours because they want you to feel great tomorrow. Reasonable prices too.

    Excellent craft beer selection. If you wish to imbibe without dealing with a crowd,show up around noon.

    The cocoa molè is the shit. Them hit the back in black. The bar staff are ultra friendly and have many good tips on the city!

    Beautiful selection of Belgian beers, including several lambics, for prices you'd pay in Trader Joe's.

    Recommended to me for great craft beer when visiting SF. And surely I made my way through the long list of awesome bottled beers.

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

    Great beer on tap. Covered seating out front. Hungry? Grab a slice across the street.

    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

    The beer is crunchy. Best be wise and drink what's on cask. ;)

    Ask Kellie (the one who most likely is behind the bar) for tastes of what's on tap. She's always willing to give out tastes so you can find the beer you want!

    I wouldn't call this a dive bar unless dive means awesome.
