America's Best Beer Bars

Slide 14 of 17

Monk's Kettle, San Francisco

Though California’s Bay Area is known for its wine, San Francisco is also a beer lover’s town, boasting some of the West Coast’s oldest breweries, such as Anchor Steam, whose history can be traced back to the Gold Rush. Local beers stand out at the Monk’s Kettle. The pub’s 200-strong beer list is encyclopedic, with a plethora of esoteric beers from all over, including Pliny the Elder, a cult, small-batch double IPA from the Russian River Brewing Company in Santa Rosa. monkskettle.com
