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:

Great beer, specially howard St. IPA and X-perimentation IPA, tasters are all 9 varieties! at 18:00 very lively afterwork atmosphere on a tuesday! Burgers taste fabulous. GooglePlace - August 2017

Small but nice selection of different beers on tap. Tapas are really tasty and the thirsty burger is so delicious. Service personal was always helpful (recommended entrees and some dessert options) and super friendly. We went to the Bartlett Hall as well but we liked the thirsty bear so much more and would definitely come here again. GooglePlace - August 2017

Really disappointing and poor value meal. My "tomato salad" consisted of 4 slices of tomato for $11. With tax and tip that's about $14.00! I ordered the vegetarian paella $24 for basically some fried rice-no saffron, no spices; the most bland meal I've had in years. The exotic vegetable in this dish was squash. I'm from San Francisco so I'm accustomed to these prices but really! GooglePlace - August 2017

Blonde bartender was rude and on her phone half the time. Unfriendly, overreachingly hip atmosphere. Unremarkable beer. GooglePlace - August 2017

Came in for a quick beer. The Meyer E.S.B. on nitro was delightful. Good service. Significant smell of something (garlic?) throughout. Wasn't the atmosphere I was hoping for. More a restaurant that happens to make beer than a brewery that happens to serve food. Not a place I'd want to spend extended time relaxing and drinking at but served my single beer having needs well enough. GooglePlace - July 2017
