Standard Deviant is sort of like a smaller, more laid-back Southern Pacific. They’re both warehouse breweries, they both have a good amount of open space, and they both have beer that is good and cheap. The big difference (aside from the fact that Standard Deviant doesn’t have a full kitchen) is that your entire high school class wouldn’t fit in here. Come here with a few friends, grab a picnic table inside and some beers, and choose a board game from the stack to play while you try pours of every beer they have to offer.

The plates at Al's Place in the Mission look like art, and taste pretty great too. "Best New Restaurant in the US 2015" ain't a bad calling card either.
Prubechu in the Mission serves fantastic Guamanian food. Don't miss the sticky and sweet short ribs.
Vegan Mexican in the Mission that’s filling if not particularly exciting. Lots of cashew cheese at Gracias Madre.
