Another must stop while in town. We were a bit shocked at how full on dive bar this place was but not bothered by it. We hit dives all the time back home so we felt right at home. Grungy and dark. Graffiti lined walls in the bathroom. There was even a guy with a dog drinking at the bar. Just like Milwaukee dives. The selection was out of this world. Not to mention the cable car. We ended up staying for about 4 hours and enjoyed every minute of it. The beers were flowing freely and the bartender was awesome. I never saw the bottom of my glass the entire night. So glad I got to check this legendary joint.

I personally had no problems with the bartenders but could see trouble for clueless customers. Love the speed metal vibe while drinking some of the best beers in the world. They had Cable Car for $60 or $80/bottle depending on vintage.

I've been wanting to visit this place for a long time. It was everything I was looking for and more....
Patrons and staff were awesome! Sat with one of the staff (steeler fan) and watched MNF-Falcons/Packers. Very knowledagble on beer and suggested some bay area breweries that I might like-Faction in Alameda-I was staying in east bay. It is def. worth the trip across the bay bridge.
Forgot how good the Pliny was when fresh like that. Reaffirmed to me that it is the best.

Great selection. Cool, low key vibe. A little divey, but that is fine with me. Patrons were friendly as could be and the service was fine. Definitely a place worth checking out.
