After a long morning walk through the streets of San Francisco, I found myself near the Toronado which wasn't opened yet, so I continued on a few more blocks to the Zeitgeist. I had actually heard about it online in an article about great dive bars in SF, and when I saw that they also served excellent beers, I decided to start my day here.

Really a cool place, black walls, long bar, games and a small kitchen in the back. And behind the bar is a door to the outside beer garden, which is large, with quite a few benches and turned out to be a great place to sip my beer while soaking up the great weather.

Quality and selection were both top notch. The beer board had a wide variety of excellent brews. I really liked how they list beers by style instead of brewery. I was looking for an IPA, and I noticed Double Tap from Berryessa, so I enjoyed a pint outside.

Service was fine. The bartenders and patrons were buzzing about a crack head lady that had just left right after I entered. But she acknowledged me fairly quickly, and served me.

Prices were slightly high, but not bad for SF.

Overall, this place was great. I definitely will come back. You have to love edgy grimy dive bars though to really appreciate this place.
