A quick stopover in San Fran my wife and I stopped in early afternoon 8/4/14 and it was pretty quiet with just a few tables occupied but people were starting to come in. Everything was new and "hip" and looked nice inside unlike the area outside, pretty rough area for a posh beer bar. 40+ taps served over three temperatures for different styles and a great bottle list of stuff from all over. The server was a young girl but she clearly had been well trained and could answer any questions I could think of. We had a charcuterie board and it was solid, nice meats and cheeses. Downstairs wasn't open but I have a feeling it would be if we stayed for a few hours, bartender said the whole place would be packed by 5. I suppose for American standards its pricy but I just landed from 6 weeks in NZ and Australia where everything costs a fortune and things seemed reasonable to me. I wish I had more time to explore the tap list but we were quite rushed, I'd go back in a heartbeat if I found myself in San Fran again.

Mikkeller is a super-hip beer bar and eatery in the tenderloin/market street area of SF. The atmosphere is low-light, very loud, and always crowded. The selection of beer is good but pricey. On my first visit I had a $10 10z to OL beer which was amazing, and a $6 Mikkeller IPA which was good. I had the pork sandwich which was smokey and delicious. If you want to pay top dollar for a big city vibe bar, this is the right place. If you want to enjoy multiple beers and food be prepared to spend at least $50 per person. The crowds and price will prevent me from coming here more than a few times a year, but if youre in the area it might be exactly what you're looking for.

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.
