I stopped by on my cross country road trip some Austin TX to Seattle WA. A two hour detour that all my friends told me was worth it and that I had to go.

After spending 30 minutes trying to find parking I showed up on a Monday at 1 pm and the place was jam packed. I wouldn't want to show up on a Friday evening as it was hard enough to move around while I was there.

The space it self is cool but I didn't get a good vibe from the people there. No one seemed very friendly.

The tap list was pretty good but I wasn't overly impressed. On the up side they had a nice bottle list and I got to buy a Cuvee de Tomme and Older Viscosity to go with me.

If I ever end up back in San Francisco I'll probably try to swing by again but I won't be going out of my way to come back. I might have just hit it on a bad day.

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.
