14. Stop ordering a Bud at Toronado. Just. Stop.
To the beer elitists behind the bar at this Lower Haight institution, there’s nothing more insulting than mass-produced swill. And because the bar is included in a number of San Francisco travel guides, these guys also have to deal with tons of clueless tourists. It’s a combination that has produced some of the most disdainful bartenders in the city.
15. Stop ordering a Red Bull/vodka at Trick Dog
16. Stop ordering any drink at Zeitgeist
Seriously, anything. If these notoriously surly bartenders don’t make you feel inferior, you’re among the chosen ones.
