Help me find the right beer bars: I’m rather particular

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! Last night we stopped at Rogue and had two of their beers; a dry hopped red which was excellent and some kind of special rye which was good but I didn't like as much as some other rye beers.

Today we swung by Pi bar where I had a Death and Taxes. It was good, but not my favorite style.

My sister-in-law had suggested Zeitgeist, but the yelp reviews all focused on the Bloody Marys so I figured it might not be anything special beer-wise. I just took a look at what's on their website, and based on that it definitely looks like it's worth a visit.

The only one I know I can get on tap around here is Lagunitas. I know we get Bear Republic in bottles.

I have been to Beer Revolution! I kinda dug the atmosphere, especially after a couple beers ;)

We came out last year and only really did Berkeley and Oakland, but this time we're trying to stay within SF.

We are fans of English Bitters and cask beer in general, so that's why Magnolia looks particularly interesting to me. But based on what you and others are saying, I won't feel too bad if we don't make it there.

Thanks for reminding me about Rogue; it's not too far from where we're staying.

My husband and I will be visiting SF this weekend and I wanted to get some good suggestions for beer bars that I might have missed hearing about. If we make it to The Haight I think we’ll definitely check out both Magnolia and Toronado. I’m looking for a place with a decent number of taps that’s going to have a good selection of microbrews that I can’t get here in Boston.

I do not care about the following; it’s fine if a bar has them, but it’s not what I’m looking for so it won’t impress me:

-Macro brews (that’s a given)
-Bottles
-Imports
-Awesome beer from the East Coast (I can get that at home)

I’ve looked at the list from St. Vincent and it’s definitely along the lines of what I’m looking for, so any suggestions for similar lists would be great.

Thanks a lot!
