Stop 2 on a San Francisco pubcrawl 7/17/2011. Gotta say being middle aged somewhat conservative Texans we were slightly apprehensive going in to this place. But this establishment is all about diversity and from that aspect we fit right in. With a table of bikers, a table of college kids, a table of tattoo exhibitionists, a table of lesbians, etc, the only thing missing was a table of middle-aged Texans and we were somewhat amazed to find the crowd to be very friendly and accepting.

Outdoor beer garden with picnic tables was a great place to enjoy the cool San Fran weather. A bit divy on the interior side but again a very comfortable vibe. Tap selection wasn't huge, but certainly adequate and nicely selected with plenty of the west coast hop bombs we'd come for. Wish we'd stayed longer instead of wasting our time in the touristy Fisherman's Wharf area - Zeitgeist seems like the quintessential San Francisco beer experience.

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.
