This was my second brewery to hit in San Francisco. It's located on Haight St and has a mix of bar and hippie cafe atmosphere. It was loud and crowded with barely a seat in the house at 9pm on a weekday. Lots of cool paintings and a surprisingly carnivorous menu with few veggie options. Mainly typical brew pub stuff - a great selection of beers though. I sat at the bar and the bartender was quite busy but still willing to chat about the beers and Strong Beer Month with me. Strong Beer Month (February) is when 21st Amendment and Magnolia brew their barleywines, but also brew other beers with higher-than-normal alcohol content to play around and test out other strong recipes. If you drink 6 of these between the two places you get a free tasting snifter.

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.
