A store that only sells beer and offers top notch selections and service as well. They also always have several beers on tap. I couldn't stay long during my visit so I couldn't sample the draft beers but this is a fantastic concept. There are a couple of coaches out as well for the patrons to chill.
Even though it's on the small side the selection here is top notch. Lots of stuff that you can probably only find in a small handful of Bay Area stores. Only a few beers are kept in a small cooler, the rest are out on the shelves. They also let you break six-packs or buy singles which allows you to try a lot more beers.
The best part is the service. The guy working when I went in was incredibly helpful, offering suggestions and just bs-ing about beer. I would highly recommend this place.

A (mostly) beer only SoMa establishment with an strong tap list and comfortable environs.
If I'm staying in SF for more than a day, and staying in the usual Financial District spot, I try to make my way to City Beer Store. The three for four times I've been here it's been fairly busy. It's a polite crowd, though, a I've never had to wait too long for my next pour. There's always something to choose. A dozen to fifteen choices ranging from very small breweries you've never heard of (unless you live in the area) to stuff you've always wanted to try but haven't been able to find. The food is limited, but you're not here to eat. Parking is limited, but it is walkable if you're staying around the Convention Center. Prices are reasonable. I believe there are bottles and growlers for purchase, but I never have. A must if you're coming to the city.
