Knowing about a brewing company in SF that isn’t Anchor Steam gets you major points, and Black Sands in the Haight is such a place. The space is sleek and open, and the bar has its own beer plus plenty of others, along with a not-short menu of wine and cocktails. It can get a little hectic, but once you’ve settled in at the bar or one of the little tables the night is yours. They also do a great burger.
