Restaurant Details

There are many brew pubs in the U.S. (particularly on the West Coast), but most of them look like atmosphere-challenged sports bars and serve Miller and Bud knockoffs to match. Magnolia Gastropub & Brewery brewmaster and proprietor Dave McLean does things differently. Magnolia - a converted early-20th-century pharmacy in the Haight - is all dark wood, Grateful Dead-inspired friezes, and intimate booths. The pub boasts a revolving range of house-made beers (typically, about five cask-conditioned and around 12 on tap) from a tangy Kalifornia Kölsch to a velvety Cole Porter. Magnolia also serves guest beers from all over Europe, with the offerings frequently betraying McLean's disposition toward British ales. Chef Ronnie New's menu of seasonal, organic food pairs perfectly with the house brews to create a true artisan brewery experience.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
