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.

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.
