I'll start out this review by asking this question: Why do craft beer pubs in SF all need to be divey and seedy, with obnoxious music (Toronado) and disgusting washrooms? C'mon!

Well, all I can say is The Monk's Kettle is a very welcome departure from that. Tasteful simplicity aesthetically, with a combination of wood, granite and pleasing tones. Very nice.

Food was off the hook excellent. Way above and beyond what you'd typically find.

Beer selection was very good with a nice tap selection and really thorough bottle selection.

Prices were a tad high but for this experience and quality but I"m not complaining by any means.

Make this a must visit.

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.
