The beer selection is unmistakably the star of this establishment. The vibe is cool and relaxing. Perhaps it is due to its location in the middle of residential neighborhood in the Mission, this bar isnt loud and is great for catching up with friends over a couple beers.

Thanks to some awesome SF friends, I was able to discover Shotwell's in the Mission district. I came here for a birthday event and they were cool with my friends bringing in cupcakes for her own party.
This place is CASH ONLY and they have an old school cash register to match. I think this is kind of weird, but since they serve only beer, it makes sense unless you can drink 3-4 beers without getting intensely full.
The value I think Shotwell really has is that they have a significant list of Belgian beers. I never appreciated this before actually having visited Belgium but they have such an excellent selection that I was surprised. They are also reasonably priced for what you can get here (factor in import fees, etc.) so overall a great thing for anyone who loves Belgian beers.
The bartenders are very friendly and this place gets packed up on a Saturday night. Go early!

Cool little local bar/pub in the mission to have some beers with friends. It was pretty busy on a Monday night, so I can only imagine even more so on the weekends. The apple cider beer was refreshing, and there is a nice variety to chose from.
