I think my heading says it all. Believe me, I'm into beer, but there are people working at Toronado that just bring it down. It's also far too busy (for some insane reason!). Just don't go, if you don't want to leave offended and disappointed...More

The tap list here is through the roof awesome, including PTE! The only bummer is the beer menu posted above the bar doesn't have any description of the beers (other than IPA's and sours) and this place is usually pretty busy so it can be...More

Attempted to have a beer to celebrate an old friend's birthday Feb 28, 2017. The short, youngish bartender with long beard served him a beer, but immediately upon serving, took back the beer and had a nervous breakdown, indicating he was not going to serve...More

I went to Toronado because I'm into US craft beer, and I'd heard they have a large number of drafts. I was happy to find an English bartender, but things quickly turned bad. The bartender was abusively rude. Okay, okay, so get that attitude is...More

Toronado is the perfect beer bar. There is no other way to describe it. The focus is solely on the beer (bring your own food plus a great jukebox are both pluses) and their list is amazing. I was lucky enough to stop by during...More

Possibly the most crowded bar I have ever been in - which can only mean it's good. HUGE menu of beer choices - you are guaranteed to find something you like. And when you get hungry, try the sausage restaurant next door (they have vegetarian...More

There may not be a better place to get a pint in San Fran. Tons of options, and prices are great. Good atmosphere, friendly folks. My kind of place.

We were staying close by on a road trip holiday that started in SF and checked this place out well in advance. I have to say that of all the places that we visited on our 1500 mile trip this place was by far the...More

The Toronado is a great locals place, a great after work place and where draft is king! Cash only! Anthony Bourdain visited here and loved this place, and you will too!

From a San Franciscan that's been here a half dozen times. This is a dirty tourist trap with a good selection of beer on top but literally nothing else going for it. The staff are a bunch of racist, sexist trolls that delight in pissing...More

The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and
Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of
the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage
clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops.
While the Summer of Love ended decades ago,
Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of
hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through
its streets can still feel like stepping back in time.
