This place was highly recommended by the hostel I was staying at. 30 beers on tap, covering a variety of local breweries. The food looked good too (I didn't eat there). Nice atmosphere, worth visiting if you are a craft beer cotnnesiour.

Fun bar. Super fun bar. Did I mention it's a great place for a beer? Never tried the food, but the beer is first rate. Amazing selection, clean and spare interior.

Visited for a few beers and a bite to eat with a work colleague. Great selection of Ales, interesting decor and tasty chicken sandwiches. Very good service from the staff, great music being played. I imagine it's great for large groups too.

They have an awesome selection of taps to choose from. The spot itself is cozy, hip and minimalistic and we loved to spend one evening there. Recommended.

We stumbled upon this place randomly one night and loved it! Numerous craft beers to choose from, and a small menu as well. We ordered pork sliders and were pleasantly surprised!

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
