    Medieval Madness and Attack From Mars pinball. Also a jukebox, pool, and local beer on tap.

    Love the jukebox. $5 for 10 songs, takes credit card. Choose wisely.

    Great beer bar with pool tables (which aren't hard to get on weekdays). Especially good for sours - they usually have multiple Almanacs and other types on tap.

    One of the last remaining classic bars in the Mission... Not a mixologist's favorite haunt but their beer on tap is unmatched!

    Second oldest bar in the city. Dog friendly. They have treats for the doggies. Floors are concrete, so easy to clean if dog makes a mess.

    An old beer bar with history and character. Cash only and no crap on tap, so come in expecting to spend a bit more than usual.

    Nice local craft beer selection, fancier than a dive, friendlier than an overcrowded trendy spot.

    Ask about the bulletholes in the bar! Those are the only shots you'll find here though! They only serve beer and ciders!

    Pretty bro-tastic. Lots of cargo shorts, high fives, and polo shirts.

    Great beer selection and bartender. Make sure you're not entering on an obnoxious trivia night, unless that's your thing.

    Love this bar. It reminds me of the Brooklyn Inn in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, which is my favorite bar.

    Pool table in the back and a great spot to grab a drink. It is usually less crowded then other spots like Trick Dog and good for large groups.

    A surprisingly chill bar that's not too far from all the hype on Valencia.

    Cash only but can't go wrong with beer selection and the atmosphere. Have problems? Leave them at the door. Not at Shotwell's. Life's good here

    Like a library for beer nerds. History buffs will love it to, as it’s got a great story dating back to 1868. You’ll go for a beer after work but stay all night.

    The sangria wasn't bad last I checked. You should tell employee Paul Suway that "Travis says hello."
