We are proud to be a San Francisco certified green business. Our house beers include ales, lagers, Belgium inspired beers, seasonal specials and cask conditioned ales. We have a full bar and offer select California and Spanish wines. ThirstyBear serves eco-friendly kegged California wines by the glass. The menu at ThirstyBear presents a contemporary and seasonal approach to traditional Spanish tapas. We utilize local and organic products as much as possible, working with local farms and purveyors to provide the freshest ingredients that are in season. We are the ideal venue to grab some tapas and beer with some friends at our bar, sit down in our dining room for a delicious selection of paellas, or to host a large gathering for any festive occasion. We also have pool tables and darts upstairs, which can also serve as a great space to host your special, private event. Join us for live flamenco performances every Sunday evening. Reservations are recommended. Book your banquet at ThirstyBear here:

Tips from the Net @ ThirstyBear Brewing Company

Not a good place for large groups. Food late and overcoked. Waitress was wonderful; manager was not pleasant. On the way out, was almost pushed over by another server carying food to his table. Overall I would be more satisfied with street hot dogs than this place! GooglePlace - February 2018

Terrible service. Asked for a medium burger, got a well done one. Could not get them to change it. Manager was a jerk. GooglePlace - February 2018

My wife and I flew in on a Thursday night at 9:30 from Indiana. Closing time was 10pm. Server was very nice but immediately came to our table and told us it was last call for drinks and food then hovered over us. We didn't understand the menu items as we have never had this type of food before so we ordered the burger to be safe. It was very good and enjoyed it a bunch. Lucky choice. The server came back and was very nice the entire time. My problem is if you have a closing time then you need to have it be the closing time. OR.... set the closing time earlier so we have time to eat and enjoy the place after walking 2 miles to get there. Maybe it's different in the Midwest but if you close at a set time then you treat every customer the same and have "last call" at the closing time and not 1/2 before. We visit breweries for the atmosphere first then the beer/food second. GooglePlace - February 2018

Attended an SF Travel event. Had not been here in a while, delighted to see food quality and presentation still excellent. Busy evening in the main floor with diners. I will go back as it is close to my work. GooglePlace - January 2018
