I have no idea why this place gets the praise that it does. Been here on 3 separate occasions because it was convenient and the place you're "supposed to go to" when in SF for a beer.

I've read so many mixed reviews and while I've never had a particularly bad experience, I certainly have been underwhelmed each time I've been here. Just a dive bar with a staff that pours pints of cali standards and lame belgians.

The first two times were in the evening, so of course super busy, but that was to be expected. I always just order a pliny and that's that. Was hoping that this most recent visit there might be something else of interest, but there really wasn't.

Had my pliny, was decent, have a suspicion that they don't bother to clean their lines often...

visited the afternoon of 9/10. had alpine's nelson, moonlight's death & taxes, and faction's summer ipa on draft. great tap variety (allagash, russian river, moonlight, etc) to choose from, but not the most exhaustive list, by any means. bottled beer list seemed a bit slim when i visited. brewery stickers & other memorabilia decorate every inch of the place. very comfortable, relaxed. jukebox is filled w. a lot of metal and its played loud. fortunately, i was able to sneak in some elvis. this place is legendary & did not disappoint.

Typical dive bar, okay service, but their second-to-none beer selection (Russian River, Alpine, etc.) speaks for itself.
