I like most Rogue beers a lot so was pretty keen to pop by this place.

Atmosphere follows the SF craft beer pub trend of having no pride in aesthetics. Place felt dusty and cobbled together.

Service was fine, no quibbles there.

Food was so-so, although the chili I had was pretty good.

Value is reasonable.

Beers were great and a good selection of guest brews too.

Late evening on Sunday 3rd Feb 2013: the 49ers had earlier blown the Super Bowl and this place was subdued and fairly quiet apart from one table full of collage kids who had to shout because they appeared too pissed to talk.

The joint is basic and wooden: as are the pieces of furniture. Chalk Board high up behind the bar tells you what's on: when I asked for a ZIA Fireside Chat I got blank looks, my eye sight is so bad and the writer of the chalk board so crap it had 21A (as in 21st Amendment) looking like ZIA: oh how we laughed. The staff loved me, even got some free crisps, or whatever Americans call them. Anyway my wife and I shared 6 different beers and had a very pleasant stay, chairs could have done with some cushions though.

We stopped in for a few beers around around noon on a Saturday. It's near the tourist attractions (Pier 39, etc), which was reflected in the prices but the service was great. They had at least 38 taps of Rogue, Anchor, a few ciders and a couple other random breweries. They had anything you were looking for. We only had an appetizer, the Blue Balls, and they were great. Definitely a great place to take a break from the sightseeing and relax.

One of the stops on my Coastal road trip. I visited this place after the Brewery in Newport. I was in the area and figured I would have a quick beer. The place has a nice layout and feel to it. The beer selection was very good, both guest taps and an excellent offering of their own. I had the Class of '88 Barleywine and I liked it very much. I didn't eat any food, but the food beside me looked excellent. The service was very good, in contrast to the shitty service at the brewery.

I would drop by if you get a chance, worth checking out.

Considering the location, and the fact that Rogue is a very large and established brewery, I like this spot a lot more than I ever thought I would. Even though there's a bit too much merch going on, the overall design of the bar (my preferred spot of choice) is nice. And the selection is heavy on Rogue, yes, but there are also a lot of other beers on tap to try - which I think is the right way to do it. Service has always been good; genuinely attentive and chill.

A great neighborhood pub with many draft beers. We visited this pub twice while in town during off hours and were delighted. When we were there they had about 15 Rogue ales and about 15 guest taps, many that we didn't know and the friendly bartenders were very helpful with advice and samples. Growlers are also available. The efficient city transportation takes you very close to their door. The only food we had was a bean dip of some sort and it was delicious and went very well with our beers. This is a casual, comfortable place with many regulars and visitors. We enjoyed our beers and the hospitality and will be back.

I didn't even know this place existed in San Francisco until my cousins-in-law took me when I was there on business. It's not often that the three of us get tipsy all in the same bar, but this place was that warm, comfortable, and relaxing, all the while bustling with fun and charisma. The well-lit layout encourages interaction with other patrons without the discomfort of sitting on top of people. The service was ok, but at least it wasn't bad. You might wait for a few minutes when you make your trip up to the bar and bar keeps aren't going to entertain many questions. But at least they're not condescending jerks that so many craft beer joints seem to employ. There is a great selection of home and guest beers. I had a wonderful time here and would love to go back as soon as I can.
