San Fran for the weekend...suggestions..
I have done a search and came up with this thread from the middle of last year.


Anything anyone could add?

Anchor Steam isn't open on the weekends and I get thirsty (wherever I am).

Your tips and hints for breweries, brewpubs and stuff to try is appreciated.

BTW, I changed from BB to Android and the HBT app is great. Love this place.

Go to the city beer store. It's a weird little spot that's like a retail beer store but you can drink there. Huge selection of micros and imports, as well as a handful of craft brews on tap. Cool spot.

Head north to Santa Rosa and hit up Russian River Brewing. They have a good selection of beers there and the food is good too.

Russian River is a must! Best IPA selection in the country IMO.

Magnolia Brewing on the Haight is good.

What part of town are you staying in?

If you are actually in SF I would stop by Speakeasy Brewery today from 4-9 for firkin fridays. Theres usually 80 plus people for $3 beers, and the brewer give tours.

Magnolia, 21st Amendment, and Thirsty Bear are all good brewpubs.

Russian River is awesome, but its an hour drive out of the city. If you don't want to travel too far, I would drive over to Berkley/Oakland and stop by Beer Revolution, the trappist, and Triple Rock.

+1 on Magnolia. Good eats too. If you want to get some dynamite Pinot, head up 101 to Petaluma & stop in to see Hoot Smith @ Kastania Winery.

Not beer related, but eat some dim sum.

Best dim sum is at the Oriental Pearl.

+1 for the Thirsty Bear. Can't go wrong with beer and tapas.
