Magnolia Gastropub & Brewery
Established in 1997 originally as a basement brewery, Magnolia is proudly historic. This craft beer haven has an amazing variety of cask ales, home brews, and also some organic bar food. We suggest going on Sundays, because nothing goes better with brunch than beer. They even have their own trademark slogan: "Everything is brewtiful."
Brewmaster Dave McLean started brewing balanced, sessionable beers in a seven-barrel brewery in the basement of the Haight Street brewpub in 1997. Today, Magnolia brews dozens of beers that run the gamut of flavors and styles, so you can always find whatever you’re craving. McLean is no longer a part of Magnolia, but the beer remains as interesting and innovative as ever. The Dogpatch location closed in early 2022, but the Haight Street location was always a lot cooler anyway—it’s still thriving and offering 12 beers on tap (most of which you can also take home in a growler) and tasty pub fare.
