As tourist by himself at night a walk over vs a Uber might have not been the best idea .. but once inside great tap room cool vibe and helpful staff with great selection of beers and size pour (always a plus).. only thing that could but them over the top is a little food or snacks while drinking .

Made my first visit to Cellarmaker on a Friday afternoon in June, 2018. I'd read others' reviews about the sketchiness of the neighborhood, but even so I was surprised at the number of homeless on the streets. I parked across the street and kept my belongings out of sight in the trunk and didn't have any problems, but I'd recommend going with a group.

Decent crowd at 2pm on a Friday. I was able to get one of the few seats at the bar and sample several beers. Strangely, there was only one IPA on tap that day; most of the offerings were pale ales which were a little bit dialed down flavor-wise. I also tried a wild ale that had had a bottle release the previous day. Overall, I was a little bit disappointed in the beers I tried that day. Maybe my expectations were too high? I did meet some cool people and we chatted about beer and San Francisco, and some of the other breweries in town. I would visit again, but I wouldn't go so far out of out of my way.

Hops to the Dome!

Best brewery in the SF bay area! Top tier brews and tight crew running the place.

Smallish bar/taproom with the brewery in the back. Always a particularly great selection of fresh hoppy ales, pretty mellow vibe for how crowded it is during peak hours. To go options are growler fills and once a month hoppy can releases with sporadic bottle releases of sours/stouts. Can/bottle releases are relatively low key and pretty smoothly handled.

on a busy street in san fran. nice space but not a lot of seating. be prepared for way to loud music and some extra cool people here. the beer is top notch so that should mellow out the other crazyness.

Modern bar meets old brick building in drug central San Francisco. Nice jazzy wooden bar and wall behind the bar with exposed old brick walls, modern hipster lights and a few plants. Gets busy quick, even a guy checking ids at the door.

15 of their own beers on tap, many ipas, a couple ba stouts, and a few other styles, nice selection and very good quality. Beer served in the correct glass too. The two bartenders were friendly and knowledgeable. Some weird modern jazz music playing.

Good place! Neighborhood vibe, strangers welcome. Good, varied selection of what they brew. Good music that does not interfere with the conversation. Obviously, fresh beer (good beer). No food, so make this your first or last stop.

Dropped in on a Wednesday night after a Giants game. Not a big tap room, but there's a lot of good stuff packed inside. Beer offerings cover the full spectrum, from light to dark, hoppy to funky, and everything in between. Pretty laid back vibe. Definitely worth a stop.

Cellarmaker Brewing is located south of Market Street towards the Civic Center area of Downtown San Francisco.

As you enter, you will find the bar and some tables with seating area. There's a large board on the wall with the day's offerings. I had a glass of a nice American Double Stout. I didn't venture towards the back, but you can see some brewing equipment from the bar area. I like this kind of transition between the area for patrons and brewing operations.

I love their stouts, and enjoyed my glass of Vastness of Space. When in the area again, I will return. Very cool.
