Great Beers on Tap

Rogue is one of the best breweries in the U.S., and San Francisco is lucky to have a place that offers many of them on tap, as well as microbrews from other breweries. I had a Shakespeare stout and a 7-hop IPA, both delicious. They offer food here as well, but I didn't eat here. They have a back... read more

In town on business and looking for a place to watch the game. Beer selection was great, food was great, and the bartender was inviting. Less than impressed with the waiter, not attentive, acted put out to have to bring a menu and a second beer.

Rogue standards but interesting guest taps. Refrigeration problems so the kitchen was closed. Bartender was the only staff so we had to order at the bar. Had to wipe down our own table. Not impressed.

It worth visit if you want a break on your tour on the higher gourmet end of San Francisco great restaurants ... Fun and cool environment, nice service and some great brew makes the Rogue a great relaxed option. Ambient a bit noise, but in line with what the house proposes. If you like beer, it worth a visit

Great beers, and you can get 4 tastes for 9 $. Popular among locals. They also got seasonal beer like pumpkin beer, even though we didn't like that one

Nice beers and nice place. Fly (4 x 100ml beers) for $9 and beer for $7. Bar tender was nice, but could have been more proactive. Overall it's worth a visit. Kitchen was closed, so had no food.

We liked the area around Washington Square and the Rogue was one of the bars where you can sit out on the square. Good range of Draught Beers, but would benefit from a list or sign detailing the beers available. I had to take advice from the barman and would have preferred a lighter beer.

$7 a pint may be a bit pricy for some, but the beer is quality. Excellent service and decent food. We tried the 8-hop IPA, the Hefe, the Kolsch, and the Amber and all were excellent. For our meal we had halibut fish and chips and tacos. During the day the crowd is pretty light, but in the evening the... More

I went to Rogue to try a couple of the beers. On that note, I was very satisfied. I had dinner with my beer and was less impressed. Service was also lackadaisical. So, go for a beer and skip the food. Sit at the bar.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
