    Really cool venue with a great aesthetic, friendly staff, an extensive drink selection including many unique in-house brews, and wonderful food. Try the sage fries, you'll leave very happy!

    Can be a bit crowded at popular times and tough to squeeze into the bar but there is plenty of room once you have a drink. Also they have a great outside patio, perfect for a mid day respite

    Most crowded brewery I've ever been to. Even on a rainy night. Prices are great as well. Love the vibe. gets crowded earlier than you would expect.. Maybe there are daytime drinkers as well.

    This 15-barrel on site brewery creates a wonderful variety of house brews that go swimmingly with chef Corey Walsh's beer influenced culinary skills. Come hungry and thirsty. Read more

    This is the first working brewery in the Mission since the 1950s, and you can count on $3 drafts and a menu of inventive but hearty eats. Expect a big back patio for whiling away sunny days. Read more

    Brewery with a great selection their own and visiting brews on tap. Burger and garlic fries hit the spot. Would recommend skipping the post work crowd as it is packed. Full liquor selection too.

    Good place for groups since you can usually commandeer a table if you hover for long enough. Also, get two orders of the fries. It'll save you the second trip that you're inevitably going to make.

    When your friends suggest going here, roll your eyes, heave a sigh, then gently suggest sitting outside at Mission Bowl instead, which has superior food & drinks and a similar, less hectic, ambiance.

    Grab a pint of the deliciously flavorful Pale Ale for only $3. Don't be afraid of pizzas with toppings like sweet potato becuase they are delicious. Great burger too. Garlic sage fries!

    Great for a big group. Tucked away in an off-street of the Mission, there's great outdoor space and vast indoors. The food is good for bar food and the beverage options are plentiful.

    As a vegetarian who doesn't drink, this place is actually great. The black bean burger is the best I've had in the Mission. Order a Bundaberg ginger beer and you're good to go.

    Nick GreifAugust 25, 2013
    At $3 a pint the beer is cheap but not a value deal. Brews don't compare to top notch west coast brands. Open spaces help make up for the crowded yuppie ambience, but all in all it's no big draw.
  • SFGate M.

    Don't miss the beer tastings, which are like a sampler platter for brews, and the House Burger, made with chile rub and served alongside fries, pickled onions and house pickles.

    The Banh Mih is delicious and flavorful, the pickles are yummy, the burgers and house brewed beers are meh, but they stock lots of other beers too. The space is open and bright.

    This huge loft space has 21 beers on tap and a food menu that you can’t go wrong with. It's a great working space with a pint earlier on and fun and jovial as the day turns to night.

    Such a cool spot. I highly recommend the sage fries. Make sure you try the ketchup and mustard too! Homemade and packed with flavor, not what you would expect.

    Massive indoor warehouse-turned-brewery perfect for large get-togethers. The fact that the house brews are excellent and great value is an added bonus.

    Very large, open atmosphere. Central and accessible water and restroom facilities. Not too impressed with the beer selection. Friends said the food was delicious.

    Large indoor/outdoor space, and pub grub was on point. Wish the beers had more inspired names. "IPA" and "Belgian" can mean a lot of different things.

    Honestly, the beer is fine but not great (although the guest taps are usually well appointed) and that goes for the food as well. It's the atmosphere that's the draw.
