Beach Chalet

Brewery in Golden Gate Park & the Avenues

Microbrews with views: watch Pacific sunsets through pint glasses of the Beach Chalet's Riptide Red ale, with live music most Fridays and Saturdays. Downstairs, splendid 1930s Works Project Administration (WPA) frescoes celebrate the building of Golden Gate Park. The backyard Park Chalet hosts raucous Taco Tuesdays, lazy Sunday brunch buffets, and $1 oysters during happy hour (3pm to 6pm Wednesday to Friday).
