San Francisco is a chill city, and it doesn't get chiller than this outdoor spot. Sipping a beer at one of Zeitgeist's sunny picnic tables with very relaxed smokers is a definitive SF experience. The beer garden stretches across a wide, open area defined by wooden fences, but large trees provide shady spots for those who prefer to stay out of direct sun. Inside, the bar taps dispense more than 40 beers—many of them from microbreweries—available by the pint or the pitcher, and a full kitchen serves excellent renditions of simple favorites like hamburgers, bratwurst and grilled cheese.

Zeitgeist is my jam! This place epitomizes what a beer garden should feel like - wide open space, communal seating, a kind of camaraderie among everyone that only grows stronger with every beer you drink (and the beer selection is top notch). Shout out to the Tamale Lady who used to roll through here (does she still come by? Please tell me she still comes by), because tamales and beer is a beautiful thing.
