San Francisco

Hello All, hope you're all doing well... Looking for some advice, I'll be in San Fran for a few days for a business meeting, looking for suggestions for Beer destinations / you know, beer bars, brew pubs, etc... Of course I'll google it, but anyone with personal experience, recommendations? Thanks!

Unfortunately I can't make it down on Sunday, can anyone who is going volunteer to pick me up 2 tickets? I can PayPal the money in advance and arrange to pick-up the tickets sometime prior to the fest! Help would be greatly appreciated! PM me! Thanks!

Hey All, Long Time no see... Hope you're all doing well... Just a quick FYI - Rec'd an email today from Libation Nation - Apparently they're doing a THURSDAY NIGHT at the Toronto Festival of Beer this year, and Spirit of the West will be performing... I've gone ahead and grabbed tickets, sounds like...

Jon, I think there is a difference here, none of the other places you've mentioned have anywhere near 100 taps, this place is unique, and I would have visited West 50 by now regardless of where it was in the GTA. I know you want to turn this into a debate, I'm not actually interested in arguing, hon...

As for your contention that it has the "best draft selection in all of Canada" Sorry, thank you for the correction, I meant 'largest'... Whether it's best or not, that's a whole seperate discussion, we'd have to first agree on what 'best' means, didn't mean to open that can of worms - no ...

So Publican and I are the only ones who've been to West 50 so far? That's suprising! A bar opens within about a 30 minute drive of Toronto, with the best draught selection in all of Canada, and on a web site of hundreds of local beer enthusiasts, only 2 people have been (or bothered to post about it)?

Belhaven St. Andrews Ale on Tap

Hey Guys - You rate beer folks might want to check this out - I rec'd an email from Premier Brands who are the local distributors of Belhaven, that Belhaven St. Andrews Ale is available on tap at the Shamrock and Thistle at Dundas & Islington. I haven't had it on tap, that I can remember, might ...

FIRST REAL REVIEW! most OCB's are $5/pint, as mentioned previously they have a system where each beer is given a number of stars, and are priced accordingly, I think the 2 stars are about $6/pint and the 3 stars at $7... Should really be "$" instead of "stars" if the OCB stuff i...

FIRST REAL REVIEW! As planned, I visited West 50 last night (Monday), after indoor soccer. Our group of 4 arrived at about 10:30pm, the place was fairly busy, mostly people around the bar. NFL Monday Night football was playing on a bunch of big screen TV's. The taps... Ooh the Taps! Beautiful... A ...

Has anyone checked it out yet? I've got plans to go next Monday night... One thing I've noticed when I've been telling people about the place is in saying the name "West 50 Pourhouse", it sounds like you're saying "Poor House"... Kind of Awkward, I wonder if that's an intentional...
