I was really looking forward to trying Magnolia since it has such a high grade on BA. Unfortunately, we didn't have such a great experience. We went on a late afternoon on a Sunday. The place was about half full. We were greeted promptly by a hostess who told us that we could only have a table if we were eating. We decided that we would grab some food and try one or all of the beers. Our hostess gave us a table, then brought us 2 glasses of water and a bottle of water for the table. We looked at the menu and figured out what we wanted, then we waited. And waited. After we drank all of the water that was on the table, and watched the table beside sit, then have the waitress tell them they couldn't have a table without food, then having another group sit at that table, we decided that we waited long enough, and walked out without having a chance to try anything except the water. After talking to a couple of locals, they all seem to agree that this type of service is not uncommon.

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.
