Lively locale for traditional pub fare & a long list of beers, including lots of Belgian varieties.- Google
"Love their chicken sandwich / mac & cheese / vegan chili"
"Awesome beer selections, but very high prices and very loud."

Amazing beer selection and fun food with a very cozy atmosphere. On the pricier side but a great dinner if you're looking for a nice meal.

Wow, what a find. This is an awesome bar. The bar tender Chad recommended a selection of beers to try. Starting with Hen House Little Chicken a beautiful light fruity happy bitter lager then moving onto Russian River Pliny the Elder a tasty IPA, then onto Fort Point Summer Porter which was the most amazing snokey deep rich coffee chocolate Porter. My new favourite beer. It was worth the 15,000km flight to taste this beer. Wow. What more can I say. Wow. I want about another 20 of them.

Yup. Great beer selection, knowledgeable staff. Didn't try the food, but saw one of the evening cooks putting his hand in his mouth and touching hair and face. So probably wouldn't eat there, even though the pouting seemed popular. Would definitely go back for beer.

Come here for a great bet selection and good times with friends. I'm not from town but it seemed like a popular spot with locals. I thought the food and drink was well priced. For ease OK, but not mind blowing. I ordered charcuterie, a couple pretzels and some fries. It was good, but not great.

The interior here is very cozy and nice. It's a very pleasant bar, however I did not enjoy the beers very much. The brewers here are very young and it might appear to some, but most of what I was tasting (four beers) was either sour or very bitter. I am used to European beers and like my wheat beers. The do change the taps here so definitely come have a look, you might find something you like. And the do have clear toilets.

The mission is full of really chill bars where you can relax and grab nice bite to eat and drink. The Monk's kettle's presence is subtle in such a lively neighborhood, but it packs a punch in terms of delicious bites and with its mouth dropping array of beers from around the globe! With over a hundred different types of beers and freshly prepared seasonal dishes, the Monk's kettle is truly a must try! This place gets busy quickly and seating is limited! Come early for dinner and drinks or later after the dinner rush for small bites and drinks! Don't let the vast amount of beers scare you- the staff is more than willing to help you pick the perfect beer and the dish to go along with it!

Probably the best beer bar in San Francisco. They have expansive draft and bottle menus, with the drafts changing often and served by a staff is both friendly and knowledgeable. Also, the food is quite noteworthy as well; if you have a chance to eat here as well as drink, do it! Or, at the very least, have some pretzels with your beer.

Great gastropub. Always check out their specials list, or get the burger. Maybe a pretzel to start? Beer list is fantastic, but pricy. Stay away from the mundane selections (you can have a Pliny the Elder later) and have something crazy that you'll never see elsewhere. Don't limit yourself to the taps; have a look at the bottle list, and if you feel like splurging, their cellared selections are sure to have something rare for you.
