Great Place for a Beer

If you like beer, they have a great selection plus their own. Good place to get the gang together after work for some tapas and brew. They have a big room upstairs for company parties if you are looking for something casual and comfy.

It's all about the I.P.A.

Howard street I.P.A. or Golden Vanilla? Definitely go with the I.P.A.!! The friend I went with has a sweeter tooth than I, so if you're like her then you will love the Vanilla. Next time I'm definitely going for the taster. It's hard to choose between all the tasty brews they have on tap! The tapas are tasty, but a bit on the small side! I know tapas are supposed to be small bites, but these were abnormally small, especially for the price! I saw other people with salads and hamburgers that looked amazing! I think that's what I will be getting next time.




Good beer. Had the sampler and finished off with the Golden Vanilla. All the beers were good. THe golden ahd a very nice vanilla finish and was light and crisp to boot. The only downside of this brew pub is they don't serve food! Okay, they don't serve man food! I was real hungry and all we could get was tapas style dishes. Could have used a burger and fries. Wound up eating our "appetizers" and having to go to another brew pub to eat dinner. That was a tough trade off. Would go there again, but I'd eat first.



Very popular!

This place is very popular and understandable so - they serve good tapas, very good sangria, and have a fun and casual environment. Great place to go out with friends. They also have a second floor; I've seen groups have events and parties there.



Good Beer

Good home made beers. The bar is lacking good bar food. Menu is tapa style so it is small portions and overpriced. Not enough good options to go with beer.

Good food, drinks

Nice spot for drinks and a snack. Ceviche was pretty tasty, though the small amount of flatbread was odd. Sangria was surprisingly really good, as we hesitantly ordered it instead of beer. Just wasn't in the mood for beer, but the fact that they brew on spot will ensure I order next time. Friendly waitress as well.

Worth the stop

Another great beer destination, close to downtown. IPA and Stout are especially good, and the food is excellent - different from the usual pub fare, but in a good way. Place can get really crowded after work, but we never had a problem finding a seat at the bar, or being seated by the hostess. Friendly, prompt service. Watch out for your credit card receipt though, they still have a machine that prints out your whole number!

good beer, good scene, eh tapas

Generally a good happy hour bar. The beer is fresh and always a good pour, but it gets packed pretty easily even when it's not full. This is due to poor traffic layout in what is otherwise a huge space. I'm not big on tapas, but their selection is big, so I can usually find something I like. It's in a good SOMA location for the happy hour crowds, so it's particularly great on Thursday nights. Just don't expect a seat

I really like the Golden vanilla beer they got at this place it taste great. You can also try the calamari and the sour dough bread with the olive oil.

Make sure to ask for Sarah!

I went to the Thirsty Bear for the first time the other night and had a great time. We sat in the bar area for drinks and appetizers. Our server was Sarah and we had so much fun with her! She made some great recommendations about food and beer. I had the lamb empanadas and they were to die for. I would definitely go back and ask for her!

We just redesigned! Do you like it?
