4.28/5  rDev -3.2%

I caught up with friends here while on vacation and found it to be a nice cozy spot to have a few great beers. I shared a Temptation from Russian River Brewing Co. based on the glowing recommendation of one of my friends and barmates. I then ordered a Moonlight Brewing Company Reality Czeck pils on tap, it was very clean and good. The selection was quite astonishing, 5 full pages representing an array of fine choices. Anyone should be able to find more than a few beers to their liking. The bartenders were very attentive and although I didn't need help with my choices I am willing to bet they would make a suggestion if need be. The location isn't far from public transportation, but it felt off the beaten path and refreshingly different from the majority of the bars I have been to in the San Francisco area. Obviously I am not reviewing from a local's standpoint, but as a traveler I would highly recommend stopping in here.

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.
