Superb Beers

Top of the hill but worth the walk. Great pub and wonderful selection of craft beers. Whether you are a hop monster or love your imperial Russians, there's something for everyone. Burgers are not bad either - a bit greasy but tasty and filling. If you are a beer lover, put this one on your list.

The place was open, server was incredibly friendly, and it was hoppin'. It's right next to a park, so on a nice day it's the perfect place to finish your food outside. Bleu cheese hot dog with some fries is the way to go.

Nuff said. But trip advisor wants me to say more... you can purchase rogue merchandise, beers that you've not seen in the stores and a monster burger if you want more than beer!

The beers are good - there is a wide selection and the people behind the bar know their stuff. They give good advice - knowledgeable. The food is pretty good too - lots of Kobe Beef selections if you like red meat. The problem is that they leave a huge head on their pours. You're getting just a lesser fraction... More

Well worth the visit. Exceptional beer, tasty food, friendly and efficient staff, and we'll priced. Try the flight of beer. It's a great way to discover new beers you wouldn't otherwise try. We also had the burger and hot dog, which were possibly the best we had while in SF.

Walking on a cool and cloudy day. Barrel aged Russian Imperial Stout at Rogue Ales Public House was a great payment for walking over the hill from downtown. Beats the hour-long wait for the cable car, too.

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.
