Stopped in here for dinner last night, had some pretty high expectations for this place after hearing such great things over the last few months. Atmosphere was hopping. People all over the bar area enjoying themselves, we lucked into a table so we got seated really quickly, it got really busy over the course of our visit. Service was a little hit or miss. Our first guy was good but then he completely disappeared and we then were served by another guy who was stretched pretty thin and only came around once or twice. Quality was as I expected it would be, top notch. Selection was awesome. Tons of beers on-tap, all served at the correct temperatures, and a top notch bottle list to accompany it. I was able to get a Double Chocolate Bomb! on cask from Prairie that was left over from the night before and then I got a bottle off the list, great all around. Food was really good, I just wish there were a few more options. Prices were definitely high across the board so be prepared to pay a premium. Overall an awesome beer bar, albeit a pricey one. I would definitely return next time I am in town.

Rad bar. Great design, good food, amazing tap-list, and the sour room downstairs is excellent. You pay for all this niceness, of course, sometimes to extreme degrees: I spotted three 750 ml bottles of 1998 3F Geuze in the sour-room fridge a couple months ago, going for $150 a pop ... which crazily almost kinda-sorta seemed reasonable, but I've gone off the geuze deep end.

Just out of the Financial District bordering the Tenderloin sits the Mikkeller Bar in a very unassuming spot.

Inside is very large, with a good sized taplist that features a good amount of Mikkeller products, and some other interesting items as well. Cellarmaker beers can be found here as well sometimes, and some other other local offerings such as Magnolia.

Great attentive service, with a full decent kitchen. May not have the great amazing beers on tap but pretty close though, and the bottle list is fairly solid as well too. A good worthy stop.

Great selection of beer that rotates daily. They serve beer by the temperature. Relaxed casual atmosphere and knowledgeable staff. Sometimes it can be hard to find a seat.

The atmopshere here is a bit dark, despite the light woods and brick walls. Definte warehouse feel here. A U-shaped bar seats about 20. Some tables and benches are available for dining. There was about 40 beers on draft and a decent number of bottles. The beers I had over two trips were all fresh and tasty. Service was mellow which fit the vibe of the place.

Mikkeller Bar is a great place to get great beer. Although it's in a shady area of SF (Tenderloin), once you get there the bar is very nice on the inside. I usually try to go during non-peak hours so I can avoid the crazyness of the weekend crowds. The beer is stellar and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They have some pretty decent snack offerings as well.

Pricey, yeah, but a rel eclectic selection for everyone. Didn't have anything to eat but I did get a de Struise stout and an Ichtegems grand cru. Service was snappy, glasses and temps all tailored, seating ample. Zero complaints.

Just a short walk from the Union Square.

First of all--this place does beer right. 40 taps. Multiple serving temps--4 I believe and perfect glassware. Had my first Alpine Nelson on tap--just phenomenal. Two local cask ale options. Servers were knowledgeable and helped folks who needed it and could chat local and regional all night. Took a big group there and there was something for all.

Looks pretty new and a little warehouse like. They had some food but didn't try. Not open real late.

Will definitely go back when visiting.
