Zeitgeist means "spirit of the times" and I think this bar is appropriately named. The inside has a small bar with like 10-12 seats and two long tables. In the back room there is a pool table and some pinball machines. There is also an outside sitting area with picnic tables and a rack to hang your bike. The draft list had about 30 or so beers and all of them were quality. I ordered Deschuttes Mirror Pond Ale and my friend got a Russian River Supplication. The place was packed witha young college and thirty something crowd, lot of tattoos and hipster but its all good. I really liked this spot and can see why its rated so high.
Cheers

Best Dive bar in SF. A great outdoor bier-garden with reasonable selection of beers. Bloody Mary's and snack food is what I usually head for. Tons of bike parking and reasonable prices.

Hipster central. I went with a few friends on a Friday night. Place was full, but we were the only three wearing any other color than black. Good list, but there are better places with just as many good options, if not more.

Full of hipsters and bikers, but there's a lot of beer on tap. Also you can get a grilled cheese and homefries straight from Mt Olympus for like $2.
