One time I came here with my iPad (alone) & a drunk dude behind me began touching my screen; the bartender, without a comment, immediately throws the guy out. I've never felt so respected in my life.

If we have to tell you why you need to go here - you shouldn't be here. Cash only!
Travel Channel
With over 50 microbrews on tap and 100 bottled beers, this is a great stop for an afternoon drink. As seen on Travel Channel’s The Layover with Anthony Bourdain.
Men's Health Mag
The owners here worship beer. They’ll talk your ear off about the 100-plus beers in the back. It would be overwhelming if it wasn’t so damn genuine. Ask for a local brew and win their attention.

Try a beer you've never had before.

the evening crowd has gone downhill, but the beers are still great.
AskMen
There are 100 beers on tap & at least that many more in bottles, which is why it is world famous for the depth & breadth of its beer selection. If the main room is full, hit the little side room.
Esquire
Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Go next door for a sausage and tuck into a pint of Pliny the Elder at the bar. You're welcome.

Fuck it, it's too packed. Let's go somewhere else.

Arguably one of the best beer selections in the Bay Area. They update their menu daily, so there's always a new beer to try.

Do not ask for PBR or Bud. Know what you want before you order. -Josh K.

One word: Pliny the Younger.
Mauricio B.
get yourself a pint of Pliny the Elder here at some point or forever regret your choices in life.

Ask for their bottle menu - they have some really good Belgian and Belgian-style beers. Order La Folie if you want to splurge and impress.

DO NOT turn to your friends to ask "whatyawant" when have the bartenders attention. be ready with your whole order.

If its busy, know what you want. If you don't know, don't come in when its busy. Look at the board straight ahead when you walk in. Don't order Bud, Heineken, Stella, Guinness.

I love surly yet knowledgeable bartenders.
