Best Reason Never to Talk Shit About the Marina Again 

Belga

belgasf.comTo prove how awesome Belga's beer selection is, let's subject its menu to a quick close reading. The categories here include "funky," "malty," "fruity," "sour," "contemporary," and "celebratory." The full list is lengthy but only mildly dizzying, and the well-trained front-of-house staff will guide you through the process. (If you can't decide, there's always the Kopstoot, a genever-and-beer boilermaker.) Being a Belgian restaurant, it has a sausage- and mussels-heavy menu that's organized around the dictates of an educated palate, and when all else fails there is the carbonnade, a Flemish version of boeuf bourguignon made with beer instead of red wine. And brunch and lunch took a good long while to roll out, but Belga is now open for day-drinking, too. Lastly, this has almost nothing to do with anything, but it's pretty rad that the chef's name is Freedom Rains.
