Looking for a great place to enjoy a quality drink for a great price? Pilsner Inn in the Castro is famous for their extensive beer selection (voted Best Beer Selection in San Francisco by AOL/CitySearch) and handcrafted cocktails (their Cosmopolitan was voted Best Cosmopolitan in California 2011 by Stirring the Pot). They proudly boast 30 draft beers, poured ice cold from their state-of-the-art draft system. They also have a full bar stocked with liquors from around the world.
What makes Pilsner Inn even more special is their nearly never-ending happy hour. Most places will give you a couple hours to rush in after work to grab a quick, cheap drink, but Pilsner Inn has happy hour ALL DAY LONG. Yes, you heard right — ALL DAY LONG. Take a moment if you need it. They have specials on beer, cocktails and even shots if you’re feeling like it’s time to rage.
If it weren’t for the Pride flag so proudly posted in the front of the bar, you may mistake Pilsner Inn for a pub in a college town. Pilsner Inn holds a deep commitment to many of the community’s sports teams including softball, bowling and pool. If you’re not watching a Giants game while sipping on a cold brew, head to the outdoor patio and play a game of pool or darts!
“Go for the well used pool table, antique looking photo booth and all business bartender. Go for the ($6!) Tanqueray G&T: it was all gin and almost no tonic! Well, they like to keep it STIFF in the Castro!” said Yelper Janice C., San Francisco, CA.
So next time you’re in the ‘Stro, head over to Pilsner Inn for some friendly faces, affordable drinks, and a sure-fire good time.
