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.

The Mikkeller Bar in SF is fast becoming one of my favorite “destination” spots. It’s accessible, albeit in a ‘gritty’ part of town, classy enough for out-of-town visitors yet still approachable for locals. Sure, since its Mikkeller, you are going to pay a premium—but their prices are comparable with pints at most places I’ve been to lately, and certainly on par or better than what you’ll find at the nicer spots nearby. The service has gone from impeccable to even better. I don’t know if this is part of the Mikkeller experience but on my last visit I asked for a description of a beer and the server, without even being asked to, gathered two tasters—one for me, one for her. We both sipped and discussed what we were drinking, and she based subsequent recommendations for my party on that conversation. How cool is that!
Bottom line is, as long as they keep doing what they’ve been doing then I’ll keep going back for more. Nicely done.
