Don't let its somewhat rundown appearance fool you. Toronado boasts an excellent beer collection that's constantly changing, but always offering a large variety of delicious beers.

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

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.

With over 50 microbrews on tap and 100 bottled beers, this is a great stop for an afternoon drink. As seen on Travel Channels The Layover with Anthony Bourdain.

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!

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.

The owners here worship beer. Theyll talk your ear off about the 100-plus beers in the back. It would be overwhelming if it wasnt so damn genuine. Ask for a local brew and win their attention.

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.

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.

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.
