Went to the Magnolia Pub and Brewery on a Saturday night before hitting up the Toronado. I am glad we went to this place first and gave it its fair chance before heading off to Heaven for the night.

Magnolia had a really nice atmosphere. It's right in the Haight and is very earthy, dark and pub-like. The service is rather good and everyone pretty much knows what is up with the beers. That is very nice. Nothing like having the actual wait staff able to answer the questions you ask at the table. I hate having to go up and talk to the bartender or ask if the brewer is around.

The beer is brewed in the English style. The time of the year that I was there, they were missing quite a few beers and were in-between quite a few. We ordered a bunch of tasters and ended up splitting all of them before deciding on the Wheat beer. I am not a huge English beer fan, so this really wasn't the place for me at the time.

The food was excellent and so was the service. We got everything right when we ordered it and the food was quick and good. They definitely deserve high praise for being able to do this in a very crowded and popular part of the city. No frills, this is definitely a place to hang out in if you are in SF.

Great location right in the middle of Haight area. Busy pub with dark wood cosy vibe. Beers selection is heavy on the English side and doesn't suffer for it. Had 5 casks on when I was there and about 15 others on draft. Staff friendly and food great, especially the cheeses.

Very cool place right on haight street where it all went down. English style beers for the most part, some strong ales and plenty of real low session beers. Dead music playing loud, beers named for dead tunes, and a real friendly guy behind the bar sampling me generously and filling me in with info. All the beers were solid, the cask IPA was exceptional, and it was a downright awesome place to spend the afternoon. Brew house is downstairs and out of sight, but the place is full of that mashing grain rich aroma. I was stoked on this place, and the food looked good too but I didn't eat. I will assuredly be back.
