    Very spacious and a little bit loud, but with very nice people and very special beers on draft! I tried the local IPA and although it was a bit too bitter for me, I enjoyed it's very unique taste.

    A nice brewery/restaurant in San Francisco. Lots of great things on tap, so be sure to grab the sampler. The Panda Bear, a golden ale with vanilla and cocoa nibs sounds odd, but is amazing!

    The Coastal IPA, full of sage and mint, is great for anyone who favors herbal drinks. Get the 9-beer flight, you're sure to find something you like.

    This is a big place that fills up whenever a convention is going on. Still as far as a brew-their-own place goes, I really enjoy the beer and the crowd. Tapas + beer = yum.

    Located in the Market District, Thirsty Bear is a large bustling brewpub with a decent selection of house-made beer that is one of the few certified as organic.  Read more

    I really enjoyed the Paella Velenciana!! -and will return for that. The Steamed Mussels and Clams were a bit salty.

    If you liked our Golden Vanilla in the past, check our out our Panda Bear. We added toasted cocoa nibs to whole vanilla beans to make a delicious organic golden ale.

    Great vibe and not too loud. Nice to have a drink and also be able to hear the person across from you.

    Looking to try something new? Try a flight of one of San Fransisco's finest breweries! They also have a upstairs with a pool table!

    Good brews, but please resist using the bear-themed names. Just ask for the Pilsner, not the Polar Bear.

    ~* Don't come with a party of 2 or you'll they'll make you WAIT longer. Then a party of 3 or 4 will come in after you and get seated before you! Part of their "maximizing space idea" =( *~

    The vanilla beer used to be my most favorite in the whole world but they just changed the recipe so now I'm over it. Decent but more chocolate, less vanilla

    Not bad. Was here for an event and it's very clean, their beers on tap selection is a bit small but I liked quite a few.

    The Golden Vanilla beer that's popular here is now known as Panda Bear. Vanilla golden ale with cocoa nib flavoring. Totally amazing.

    Awesome flamenco dancing! Can be noisy if you're trying to chat though.

    The beer here is ok, it’s not objectionable but not worth making plans to come here specifically. I’ve been here twice and it was for group events both times, and it’s perfectly cromulent for that.

    You must try the vanilla ale! To die for! Portions of food are small, so just count on some amazing snacks.

    Pils(ner) from Pilsen tastes actually completely different, but the local beer is pretty good even for a Czech guy ;-)

    The Polar Bear aka "Pilsner" is my staple. It is tasty, and not as high alcohol content as their other brews such as the IPA.

    Come here for the beer (try the Valencia Wheat & the Grizzly Bear Red Ale) but pee somewhere else. The restroom smells like dead sockeye salmon.
