[edit] Transportation

Mass Transit is pretty decent in San Francisco. BART and MUNI Both make individual transportation relatively easy as long as you don't mind a little walking. BART even goes out from the airport so you can go straight into the city if need be. You can get a 3-Day Muni pass for $22, 7-Day for $28.

[edit] Drinking

City Beer Store

  • Fun place to sit and drink, or buy bottles to go
  • Usually good beers on tap

21st Amendment Brewery

  • Decent beer, interesting place

Anchor Brewing Company

  • Oldest brewery in SF, fun place for tours, nice beers.
  • California Common (Steam Beer) style creator
    • Dampfbier (Steam Beer) was also popular around the same time in Germany, coined "The Poor Man's Beer"

Thirsty Bear Brewery

  • Delicious food, pretty rockin' tap list, nom nom.
  • Pool tables and dartboards upstairs
  • Live Flamenco can be heard on Sunday nights

Magnolia Gastropub and Brewery

  • Lots of cask beers, fun place, usually fairly crowded
  • On a fun road to meander in complete intoxication
  • I've heard they have good food, I usually just drink there.

Southern Pacific Brewing

  • Toured the back area and brewing area, nice guys...
  • Fun, large, loud... or at least that is vaguely what I think I remember.. this was at the end of my night.

Monk's Kettle

  • Didn't make it to this place, but I wanted to go, looks like rad and rare beers.

Zeitgeist

  • You cannot possibly have a shitty time here, I believe.
  • Lovely people, great beer, freedom and tree lovin' place.
    • Fucking loved this place.

[edit] Lover Resources

  • Oceloctopus: My brother has a small condo and a car(which he might sell by august) as well as a penchant for cooking and some fun board games. I'll need to check with him before I can promise shelter to anyone, though.
