I went to San Francisco for a day trip with my girflriend and her family and this was hands down the highlight of my experience, the atmosphere does not get any cooler, they have a sweet old jukebox, old run down and just flat out awesome, everything is clean and it is in a cool part of town on lower Haight, service was great and even though the employees come off a little rough, they are really cool once you start talking to them, slection of taps was unbelievable, not even mentioning the five and half hour happy hour starting at 11:30 am, I got spoiled by being there on Lost Abbey night, so I got to drink Cable Car for four dollars a glass from the tap, pretty ridiculous and I lost track of how many I even had, I did drink two other beers and they were New Beglium's sour they brewed specifically for them and Moonlight Twist of Fate on cask, both were amazing, wish they still had food but you cannot have it all, bottle list was great too with Russian River 20th Anniversary for sale along with Beatification, Supplication, and Temptation, also some Bottleworks stuff on there as well as some very hard to find Cantillons, the place was so inexpensive and with exception of two taps, everything was four dollars or less, other draft beers that stood out when I was there were Bear Republic Black Mamba, Speakeasy Hunters Porter, Firestone Little Opal Saison, Rodenbach Grand Cru, Lost Abbey Witch's Wit, and Port Brewing's 2nd Anniversary Double IPA, this place is beer paradise and is a must stop, I know I will be going back every single chance I get

We stopped in starting at 3pm on a Friday and it was a great time to be there. We were able to get a seat in the bar area, rather than the back room (which is dark and quiet). It was 3/4 full and we stayed for a few hours. We left around 7pm and it was just starting to fill up.
The day-time bartender is good, but a bit of curmudgeon. Maybe that's his charm? When they changed over at about 5pm, it was like night and day, super friendly and engaging.
I thought the bottle list was a little weak when we visited, but I must admit, I had previously decided I was pulling the trigger on anything super rare they may have.
The tap list is great as expected. Toronado has a good reputation, lots of reviews, and I can promise that it is as advertised still to this day. If you haven't been, go and enjoy.
