“Nice place to hang out awhile.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Enjoyed the spot. As we just came from another brewery for brunch, I stuck with the nonalcoholic Ginger Beer, but my friends enjoyed the house brewed Extra IPA ad IPA. The food looked and smelled wonderful as the wait staff flew it by as we sat at the spacious bar. The place is located in an industrial area and difficult to find (fortunately we had met up with some locals that took us all there). There is an outdoor area to eat and drink as well, with a young and hip lunch crowd. I imagine it is jamming after dark! Good place to just kick-it and relax in the afternoon with lots of light pouring in.

“Graduation lunch - very nice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

What impressed me the most was that they had Lanson Brut for $80 - that's inexpensive for a restaurant of this caliber. Beautiful, modern interior, cuisine was somewhat on the "sturdier, heavier" side. Young tech entrepreneur scene.

“Unforgettable evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013

There are certain experiences in your life that will stay with you forever. This past Sunday at Southern Pacific was one of them. In this creative space was a full orchestra and chorus and Handel's Messiah. Scores and crafted beer were passed around-Hells Lager was my favorite-and the acoustics about lifted us all through the roof. Thank goodness I was held down by sage fries, which I could not stop eating. A unique, fantastic evening.

“Bohemian Summer time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

I stopped by Southern Pacific Brewing in October and fall is definitely settling into the city.
Down a short side street with a very nodescript entrance in a chain link fence is the gate to the "patio" of SPB. A half a dozen picnic tables are scattered about the concrete patio and behind those is a big old metal building which use to be a machine shop of sorts. One bar downstairs with some interesting built-in high tables for 8, and another bar with more standard type tables upstairs on the deck, this place has a very industrial feel to it. Good beer, but the pub food is only just ok.
This place would be great on a warm summer/fall day or night, but the local crowd is use to the cool weather of SF, so they fill it up anyway

“Tasty food and great location”

Had a great lunch.Atmosphere and service is great. From conversations with the locals, the beer selection and quality is second to none. Will definitely go back for an evening jaunt to get the brews.
