ThirstyBear (Montgomery)

Thirsty BearThirstyBear is a brew pub and Spanish tapas restaurant in downtown San Francisco. They make their own organic beers, keeping seven on tap and rotating in one or two seasonals. In 2009 they embarked on a modest barrel-aging program and periodically put one on tap.  Small tapas plates made from sustainable and organic ingredients whenever possible are the heart of their popular menu.

From their site: ThirstyBear taps a fresh cask conditioned beer every Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. from a traditional “firkin” keg. “We usually run the keg dry the same night we tap it, so come early!”

Extras: ThirstyBear’s brewery was certified organic in 2008, and they are a Green Certified Business. There is room upstairs for private parties. They have some TVs, but they sometimes turn down the lights and bring in the DJs or live Flamenco dancers. In 2011 they started selling pre-filled growlers of beer to go.

  1. The SF Beer Week event looks like fun: “Cask & Quesos” night, an evening of the finest cask conditioned ales in the Bay Area with wonderful cheese pairings. Listed in the Events column on the middle of their site at http://www.thirstybear.com/

    I had the chorizo stuffed squid as an afternoon snack. A great way to tour San Francisco via BART.
