Walked to the Rogue Public House while at AGU in San Francisco.

Selection first...about 10 Rogue beers including a few I hadn't tried before. Bottles of Voodoo Doughnut available too. 15+ guest taps, I ordered a New Belgium Lips of Faith Kick sour ale. Others included beers from Lagunitas, Stone, High Water Brewery. 30+ taps overall.

Bar atmosphere seemed jovial, but the back room for eating was a bit desolate and generally lacking in "Pub" feel.

Food was pretty good, although the fries with my Kobe burger (which was delicious) were bordering on lukewarm when they were brought out. Service was shoddy; the waiter seemed very aloof and cold for the most part and needed several reminders to finally get my table glasses of water.

All in all, a decent place for a pint, but I can't really recommend eating there again.

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!
