Latin/Spanish. Normally upon entering a brewery, the last thing on anyone's mind would be Spanish small plate tapas, but that's exactly what awaits visitors to the perennially packed Thirsty Bear Brewing Company. A favorite in the SOMA District for the after-work crowd and students at the nearby Academy of Art, the Thirsty Bear serves up heady, small-batch beers thatreallyperfectly complement the cuisine.
Around the corner from SFMOMA, ThirstyBear is a spacious brick-warehouse with pool tables and dartboards upstairs and the City's most outstanding house-brewed beer. The trendy warehouse ambience and brassy, industrial, South of Market setting make for a big after-work scene. The traditional Spanish menu is a delightful surprise, and hot and cold tapas are excellent and entrees are both authentic and delicious. Wheelchair accessible. Call for reservations 415.974.0905
