Late evening on Sunday 3rd Feb 2013: the 49ers had earlier blown the Super Bowl and this place was subdued and fairly quiet apart from one table full of collage kids who had to shout because they appeared too pissed to talk.

The joint is basic and wooden: as are the pieces of furniture. Chalk Board high up behind the bar tells you what's on: when I asked for a ZIA Fireside Chat I got blank looks, my eye sight is so bad and the writer of the chalk board so crap it had 21A (as in 21st Amendment) looking like ZIA: oh how we laughed. The staff loved me, even got some free crisps, or whatever Americans call them. Anyway my wife and I shared 6 different beers and had a very pleasant stay, chairs could have done with some cushions though.

Happened upon this while wandering through the city with my girlfriend's brother. We had eaten in Chinatown and bumped up the hills for a while until we were ready for a beer and this seemed like a good place. It was mostly empty at four in the afternoon on a Wednesday but the service was a little slow and the table area seemed a little dingy. The selection was pretty strong, with several taps of local stuff I hadn't seen. I had a Lagunitas I hadn't seen before. It wasn't cheap, but for downtown SF, it was fine.

Went here on a trip to San Francisco in 2011. The beer list was expansive and included several guest taps. I went in the afternoon and back for dinner that night. The food was good, lots of ingredients were grown at Rogue Farms. I would recommend to anyone in the area, it was a good spot. They do growler fills and sell package as well.

Had a great time here, went for my 26th birthday and you get any beer in a twenty five ounce mug, an amazing reward for aging! The food was of high quality, sweet potato fries in generous portions and vegetation options, a SF bay area specialty. I'd say if your in the SF bay area check it out!
