Best New Beer Bar San Francisco 2014 - Mikkeller Bar
One of the most upscale gastropubs in San Francisco, Copenhagen export Mikkeller Bar at the Tenderloin's easternmost extremity is an exposed-brick cavern with 42 beers and house-made headcheese. Tech money is in the air, but considering its pedigree and proximity to Union Square, Mikkeller is amazingly non-touristy. Packed with and staffed by beer nerds, it's also got the cleanest bathrooms of any brew-centric bar in town. And with a gas-blending system for optimum temperature-control that guarantees the perfect pint, it's the place to start keeping that beer log.
