    Friendly & knowledgable staff. Small but solid tap list which rotates frequently. Can order food from Citizens Band on the corner. Gets a bit cramped & noisy, but a great place for a beer or three.

    Great range of all kinds of beers.

    Excellent sour beer selection, both on tap and in bottles.

  • Katie M.

    As a place to hang out, it's a bit overrated, but the selection of beer is awesome.

  • Dave Z.

    Super selection of beers. Can be crowded in the afternoons, but the staff are some of the friendliest. Always ask for suggestions.

  • Taylen

    One of the top tap lists that continually rotates to always showcase great craft beer. Also a massive selection of small or simply delicious bottles available.

    Awesome selection of beer, also some tasty beef jerky

  • Eli H.

    Great sour beer selection

    Yo dawg, I herd you like beer, so I put a store in your bar so you can sip while you shop.

  • Vegard H.

    Fantastic beer selection. Can be very loud as the walls and roof are concrete.

  • Jenny L.

    Ridiculous selection of beer. Even better behind the bar (like Firestone Walker XV and XVI Anniversary, Russian River, Cascade, Bruery, Goose Island...)

  • Srikanth R.

    Just ask the bartenders for their recommendations. Get a bottle. Chill out. #peace

    Great selection. Best around.

    It's a city beer store. They have what you can't get anywhere else. Expect to fight for a seat at the bar. Lots of awkward standing too close to people at the bar until they leave. Amazing owners.

    Ashley Mowrey · March 12
  • Rob J.

    Ridiculous beer selection: ranging from things you know to things you never would find. Staff has always been solid to me-especially on the "store side."

    Rob J · March 6
  • Niku A.

    Great selection with an awesome draft list. Grab a beer and sit down with it!

  • Arian E.

    Great beers here if you can handle shitty, self-important attitude of the ultra-hipster serving staff. Most times I wind up hating that I'm giving them my money. Only go b/c friend's biz is next door

  • Brian S.

    They get a lot of bottles that are hard to find other places. Check their taplist on their website also.

    Get out by 10pm or they'll kick you out!

  • Edward G.

    Amazing craft beer selection. Also a great place to sit and try a few.

  • Time Out San Francisco

    Grab a beer from the cooler, order a small plate of regional cheeses and salametto and banter with the other beer-o-philes. When it's time to head out, mix and match a six-pack to take away. Read more

    Beer! Beer!

    I dig the little speakeasy hidden room behind the "mirror" with the old card catalog file cabinet.

    Michelle W · August 29, 2014
  • Jake G.

    Great selection of local IPAs

    Jake Giltsoff · August 22, 2014
  • Gordon W.

    Beer by the bottle selection is stellar and they usually have at least one unique beer on tap.

    One of the largest ranges of beers in San Francisco. Find many important beers here along with a great range of USA brewed.

    Always something new and exotic on tap, and an amazing selection of bottles to take home.

  • Zach F.

    Don't let the name deceive you - this place is also a bar!

    Zach Fox · August 7, 2014
  • Chris E.

    Helpful staff and amazing beer. No food though, but if you're there during the day grab a sandwich at Deli Board, bring it over, and you're all set.

    They sell the Iron Springs Kent Lake Kolsch here! Seems to be pretty elusive as of late @HrsnHrsn

    All I can say is.....AWESOME! Russian River Pliny the Elder usually shows up on Wednesday. Be there! Great beer selection and really amazing beer taps.

    Greg Lear · July 12, 2014
  • Stephen P.

    Huge variety of beer. Buy a bottle and drink it in store, or take it to go.

    Stephen Poletto · May 26, 2014

    Gentleman working there said Cascade Figaro was only made for City Beer. Really? I can order on Cascade's website. Also, DO NOT GO PAST REGISTER WITH A CLOSED BOTTLE! You will get YELLED at.

    Paul S · March 29, 2014
  • Nicholas L.

    Great selection of beers but check the date before buying. We found several out of date bottles on our visit.
