A girlfriend and I were heading to a friends music performance in San Fransisco, in The Mission. When we arrived at Brick and Mortar Music Hall, we realized we were an hour early so we headed to the corner of the street to find a place a place to eat, when I saw The Crafty Fox Ale House. Seeing as I am obsessed with foxes, I knew I had to eat there, so we headed in.
We sat at the bar and admired the atmosphere of the place. Dark wood barstools and floors, with white walls giving the place a modern day tavern feel. Behind the bar was a beautiful row of a rainbow of beers on tap. I ordered the Magnolia Kalifornia Kolsch with their fish and chips as the entree. It. Was. Amazing! Fish and beer are a perfectly paired meal with the salty crunchy fried fish and the sweet wheaty flavor of a beer. While we sat chatting about the concert more and more people entered to have their dinner.
With 36 rotating taps, the craft beers makes this small ale house a unique place to find a great variety of ales. They also have a selection of their beers bottled and canned for you to take home and you can mix any of their selection to create your ideal four pack. (Note: if you drink their bottled beers on the premise they charge $1.00 corkage fee.)
For the quality of food, drinks, and atmosphere I would say it’s a fairly priced restaurant. The service was lovely and the food came promptly. I would definitely go back again.
