A nice place near Pacific Bell Park. I love that smoking is banned in California restaurants. (Sorry, smokers.)

A big, warehouse-type place. Very tall ceilings and lots of natural light from windows with murals on the brick wall. I sat at the bar. Nice bartender. It wasn't crowded on a Tuesday afternoon in August, though there was a private function going on upstairs.

I didn't try any of the food, just all their brews! They serve their samplers in fairly large glasses. Of particular note is their Double Trouble IPA for all you hopheads. Wow! I asked the bartender what hops are in them. He didn't know, but went and asked one of the brewers. Turns out they use Warrior, Cascade and Tomahawk. A great IPA in the West Coast style.

Good vide. Low key on a Tuesday night. Busy but chill. Sitting at back table working on client work. Mostly males eating and drinking. Service was nice, and beer selection was good. About 10 on Tap and another 8 in cans. Food was slightly above average in general but less than average for what I get at other brew-pubs. Would come again for sure.

I recently stopped in here on a trip to Northern California. The inside hosts a bar and restaurant, and I believe they brew some beer at this location as well as their San Leandro production facility. The bartender was quite nice and attentive when I stopped in. They had around 12 beers on tap with a wide variety of styles represented, and cans of their year round stuff for sale as well. The quality of everything was good.

Travelled there week before Super Bowl. Close to ATT park. Decent vibe. Good bartenders. Was mildly disappointed in take-home options, but not the tap selection options as it was the beginning of beer week in SF. They brought out some great brews from the cellar, including a 2010 Lower de Boom, which was outstanding. Food was good - cheese curds and wings.

Went on a Friday night when AC/DC was playing down the street at AT&T park and the place was rockin', I'm talking shoulder to shoulder beer drinkin' rockers looking for a beer and a bite to eat. The atmosphere there is great and although the service wasn't great I have to give them the benefit of the doubt because the crowd was huge, I'm sure on another night things would be more expedient. Beer selection is great and the food is adequate for keeping your stomach full while your drinking. A long line waiting for restroom use wasn't pleasant but expected. Next Giants game at the ball park will merit another visit.

A must stop for anyone visiting San Francisco as it is very accessible from public transportation and has a very good selection of beers! (stay away from the gumbo!)
