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.

I live in the neighborhood and often visit magnolia on weeknights for a beer and a bite after work. The beer is consistently decent, with somewhere like 10-20 taps, and the food albeit a touch expensive is good. The downfall of this place is that it gets very crowded and doesn't have the space or service to handle the crowd. It's always tough to order a beer from the bar here, and there's always a wait for a table. Not to mention the inside is consistently hot and sweaty--don't bother bringing a jacket. Overall, magnolia beer is decent, the food is good, but be prepared for a typical crowded/hip san francisco spot.

A: well. It is Haight/Ashbury. So, there is a bit of nostalgia. Grateful Dead playing all night long. Interesting patrons. Loud.

Q: the devils on horseback are delicious. The beer is good. Hotwings are good.

S: friendly and informative. Chilled out.

Selection: approximately 12 beers on tap. Good menu is limited, but tasty selections.

F: can't complain. What we had was all tasty.
