    Don't miss Wednesday nights when they spin deep soul cuts on vinyl. This little gem of a bar has a constantly changing and well-curated draft list and an encyclopedic bottle selection. Read more

    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.

    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!

    Love this place. Check out the sour list- don't come on open mic night-listen to metal. (And hardcore)

  • Ernie G.

    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.
