A well selected list of draft beers to consume while perusing a relatively extensive stock of bottles. While the bottles are priced reasonably, I have found the draft list to usually be high even for San Francisco standards. I haven't found as many rarities (such as RR sours, barrel aged etc.) here as I have at some other stores in the city.

I came here on Wednesday May 29th, 2014. The Atmosphere was a bit crowded for a Wednesday but we had no problem in getting service. The quality of beer is excellent. I just wish they could have more refrigerators for the IPA's they keep on the outside shelfs. The service was good. The selection in bottles was very decent both in the refrigerators as well as in the shelf. They also have a number of beers on draft. The list wasn't very impressive that night! In addition, they have refrigerators that are at the back of the bar, these have rare but very expensive beer. I decided to skip on those even though they had a good selection of brews. I did not get to try any of their food but I believe they only serve light appetizers. The thing that I disliked about this place was the price of beer. A lot of the beer is affordable but the corkage fee seemed unfair to me. They have different corkage fees depending on the OZ per beer. I know they need to get as much money from people as possible for rent but I'd rather just drink their draft beer instead. Overall it was a good experience but not as good as I had anticipated.
