    Check out Church Key, marked only by a sign with a lit-up key, it's a neighborhood joint with a constantly changing and well-curated draft list (each $7) and an encyclopedic bottle selection. Read more

    Fantastic place for beer. Super casual and everyone there is really friendly. One of my favorites for North Beach. The beer changes all the time so check it out and see what they have.

    A nice beer bar, but the vibe is a little stuck up if you're not a regular. Still, the prices are reasonable and the tap and bottle selection varies enough to keep me going back.

    Cozy beer spot in North Beach SF. Quality beers on tap and quality bartenders pouring them. All draft beers are $7, but the size varies on the style.

    Ask the bartenderfor a suggestion of a beer you've never tried. Enjoy the cozy space, the eclectic crowd & music, and a taste you wish you heard about last year.

    Bad experience. Bad customer service. Treats customers bad and they just want you out! You feel like you are bothering someone at their living room!
