Best Bar Featuring Only Local Beer 

Hopwater Distribution

There's no question the Bay Area and surrounding territories have far more than their fair share of great breweries. While it can be limiting in some ways, some SF beer bars have jumped on the local-only trend. (This can also be a very good thing, considering how fresh the beer is!) No bar in SF is curating a better all-local tap list than the year-and-a-half-old Hopwater Distribution in Lower Nob Hill. It claims to pour only California craft beer, but in practice most of its list comes from an even smaller radius than that. If you want a tour of what the Bay Area's breweries are up to, this is your go-to spot.
