Standard Deviant is sort of like a smaller, more laid-back Southern Pacific. They’re both warehouse breweries, they both have a good amount of open space, and they both have beer that is good and cheap. The big difference (aside from the fact that Standard Deviant doesn’t have a full kitchen) is that your entire high school class wouldn’t fit in here. Come here with a few friends, grab a picnic table inside and some beers, and choose a board game from the stack to play while you try pours of every beer they have to offer.

Berkeley’s Top Dog is an institution: an anarchist hole-in-the-wall that serves incredible hot dogs late into the night.

Down to talk loudly and eat a ton of burrata in the Mission? Get yourself to Beretta for excellent Italian small plates.
