SF Weekly's Description

Very few things justify a three-hour wait, but that's the average Sunday night at Monk's Kettle, which gives you a sense of the place's popularity. Yes, this Mission ale-haven is crowded, but not so loud that you can't have a decent conversation without shouting. The menu is heavy reading with descriptions of more than 100 beers in the bottle, 24 on tap, and rare vintage beers in the cellar. Even not-so-rare domestic beers go by a clever moniker: when ordering Grandpa's Suds, do not be surprised to receive Olympia in a can. Chef Kevin Kroger crafts comforting California-style cuisine using whatever's in season. The menu changes often, but you can always find Jude's vegan chili, a soft pretzel with an ale-infused cheese sauce, and a hearty grass-fed beefburger. Be sure to try the recommended beers paired with each edible item.

    “Best Beer List – The Monk’s Kettle…. this is the place for the uninitiated to get a crash course and the connoisseur to talk shop with other beer freaks. - San Francisco Chronicle

    Order an obscure Belgian beer...it's #50 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2010.

    Try the pretzel.

  • DailyCandy on 12/09/10

    People rave about the handmade pretzel and endless craft beers, but our love affair is with the lamb burger.
