Brewpub located in the South of Market neighborhood of San Francisco. Slightly upscale decor. They have about 8 of their beers on tap. Mostly basic brewpub styles. I sampled the IPA and it was pretty good. The food is Spanish with a trend towards tapas. The food is decent and a bit pricey. A bit of a step-up from the standard brewpub food. None of the beers are what you would call outstanding but they are all decent. This is one of the better brewpubs in San Francisco. It's near downtown and Union Square, thus easily accessible for tourists.
