    The big daddy and black hand is a knockout. Strong , great tasting beers at great prices. Outdoor seating as well as indoor. Dogs and kids welcomed on the patio!

    The tour is lame. Not worth the trip out to Bayview. And the bar area is way too cramped.

    by far the coolest taproom concept and execution of a speakeasy-style place I've seen! bartenders have always been great, super helpful. favorites are Scarlett (Amber ale) and Metropolis (lager)

    They don't do tours yet. But the taproom really sets the scene of a Speakeasy!

    You'd never expect to find such a great spot in this area of SF but it exists and it's worth the trip, even if you don't drink beer. Great taste flights.

    Forgot the name but the highest alcohol content (9.5) was really good. Their beers vary in taste.

    Beer. Also: they have Cards Against Humanity behind the counter. Play with anyone else at the bar. You can't go wrong.

    Great tap room for this brewery. Go on a Friday after work and get one of their strong dark beers.

    Check out the speakeasy room in the back. Great lighting and atmosphere. Grab a Blind Tiger if it's available.

    The tour is totally worth the experience, and the beer is never as fresh as it is inside the brewery. Definitely check it out if you get the chance.

    Cool speakeasy style bar with a big booth room and a large table room for big groups. The beer is awesome. Take a tour if you can. Funny and you get a pint glass and beer flight.

    The tap room is really nice and well themed. I'm surprised that no other beer or alcohol company tried to do the prohibition era before these guys did! Super cool event, worth the vip prices.

    It may not be the bed part of town, but you'll forget your surroundings when you step into the highly detailed prohibition-era taproom. Beautifully appointed plus a brewery with a great story.

    Don't rent their private rooms, it's such a rip off. They have crappy service and the bartenders are rude. People should wait until the actual brewery is open cuz the people in the tap room suck!

    If you like malt liquor try the green flash! Otherwise the barley wine and smoked porter are delightful. Great tap room.

    A little south of downtown - check out what those "sneaky" eyes mean on the side of their bottles. We recommend the Payback Porter!

    Speakeasy has delicious beers and fun events. We love their creative names and logos as much as we love local brews!

    There’s often a Friday-only special brewmaster beer on tap that you can’t buy in stores. If you’re real lucky it’ll be some variation on the bourbon chip porter we had here once. Read more

    Go to their Friday 4-9pm happy hour (the only time they're open?). Get there at 4 if you want a tour, too.
