Well if you are talking about beer pubs in SF than this is the opposite of Toronado. Good service, warm happy bar with good food. Dug it. Was bit pricey but you pay for what you get, at least I wasnt treated like cattle. Service was good...bartenders could be a little more knowledgeable about what they are selling, but were very attentive. The food and beer were absolutely delicious. The place was a little small but the atmosphere is cool. I highly recommend this to anyone in the area.

Good times with good people. Will be back

Super friendly staff. I guess it helps when you bring over some Heady and Sip of Sunshine from the East Coast. No, they were great before I even offered those beers. Tap list still had most of the sours available from their SF Beer Week sour event the day before. Only remember a vintage Lost Abbey Framboise de Amorosa being unavailable the day after. Got to try a lot of Rare Barrel offerings along with Cellarmaker/Sante Adairius I see a Dankness.

Way different vibe than Tornado. Sat outside-great people watching- never really saw the inside.
Had a Pliny and a nelson! Very good. Worth the trip. easy on/off back to east bay- near on ramp to I80

Seating's pretty tight, brews are generally local on draft but not necessarily. Prices vary in a wide range, little obnoxious. Good bottle list, fair number of high end Belgians present.

Alpine Nelson on tap, great service, and cool vibe. I'd be back here often if I didn't live in NY.
