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.



  • have a beer & a sausage!!!
  • Do not ask for PBR or Bud. Know what you want before you order. -Josh K.
  • 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 word: Pliny the Younger.
  • get yourself a pint of Pliny the Elder here at some point or forever regret your choices in life.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • If we have to tell you why you need to go here - you shouldn't be here. Cash only!
  • 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.
  • Tip you bastards!
  • DO NOT turn to your friends to ask "whatyawant" when have the bartenders attention. be ready with your whole order.
  • I love surly yet knowledgeable bartenders.
  • Alligash white-mmmm!
  • 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.
  • Bartenders are pretty great overall, despite their grumpy reputation. Absolutely worth getting a beer (or four...)
  • This Haight Street bar has offered great beer in San Francisco since 1987.
  • Try a beer you've never had before.
  • Get something on cask, like the Firestone 31.
  • get the hop stoopid
