Well, there is Hopyard Bar & Grill. They normally have a decent selection. If you come over the hill into Hayward you have Buffalo Bill's and the B Street Bistro, both within easy access to the BART station.

If you want to go to bars, check out Lucky 13 at Church and Market (say hi to my sister Laura W-Sa. nights) cheapest Pliney $4 pint.

I've never been to Toranado, but they have the best draft selection...547 Haight Street

Also, really like Zeitgeist Bar 199 Valencia St
(at Duboce Ave). It's a bicycle/motorcycle bar with a great back patio for all kinds of adventure...

If you walk up Valencia about six blocks there is Amnesia which used to be my every Saturday place, but that was a long time ago, when I was young.

Ok. If you are staying in Union square I highly suggest going to Church Key in North Beach. The have a large selection of bottles and a few good drafts. Then hit up Rogue also in North Beach. And can't forget La Trappe which has also a great beer menu. Toranado has a huge selection it's in lower Haight. Marin Brewing Company in Larkspur. Iron Springs in Fairfax. Go to the Academy of Science in golden gate park. There is a restauran

Called the Moss Room. They have a great selection of classic cocktails. And another place to go would be the Presidio Social Club. More classic cocktails and amazing food. Good luck.
