The first thing you'll notice when you walk into this modern brewpub is a giant torpedo behind the bar, which serves as the base of the bar tap. A must-visit for any beer aficionado, Barrel Head offers 30 rotating micro-beers on tap, along with cocktails and a full menu of high-end pub fare. The brewhouse also offers a weekend brunch menu, featuring salads, Hog Island oysters, steak and eggs, and bottomless mimosas.
Barrel Head Brewhouse encompasses everything you desire in a lively brewpub… and much, much more. Set in a rustic industrial-chic atmosphere, with reclaimed wood communal tables (handmade by the owners themselves), this cozy two-story space set in SF’s NoPa neighborhood offers 170 seats, which includes a Cheers-esque bar area, a bustling restaurant, a private mezzanine for large party reservations, and an intimate fireplace. Loaded with an eclectic seasonal list of thirst-quenching house brews, including a barrel-aging program, they also offer 30 rotating guest beers that pour from the infamous WWII torpedo tap. For those who prefer a cocktail, their friendly bartenders can mix you up any combination from their renowned build-your-own-adventure "Manhattan Project” or innovative signature “ Brewtails.” Yes, that is a COCKTAIL with BEER— the best of both worlds. The topper — mouth-watering seasonal Californian comfort food and BBQ to boot. Whether looking to catch their killer “Hoppy Hour,” a game on one of their 9 flatscreen TVs, or a high-score run on the old school Miss Pac Man machine, Barrel Head has something for everyone, and everything for plenty. PS — if you're lucky, there just might be a splash or two of Pappy Van Winkle stashed away. Wink, Winkle.
