Each day our Kitchen puts together some “off the menu” dishes: a Daily Sandwich (available until 4pm), and an Entree that take advantage of the bounty of ingredients the Bay Area has to offer.  These dishes will always have one particular beer that we feel pairs best.

We’re open 12noon to 2am daily, with the Kitchen open until 1am each night.  Join us for Weekend Brunch on Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4pm.


Welcome to the Monk’s Kettle!

The Monk’s Kettle opened its doors in December 2007, at the forefront of the craft beer boom now sweeping the Bay Area. Named after the world’s first craft brewers, Belgian Trappist monks, who brewed beer in kettles, The Monk’s Kettle is an upscale neighborhood tavern in the Mission District that offers a broad and balanced craft beer selection and sets the standard in pairing beer with food. Focusing on craft beer and upscale classic American pub fare, we carry a comprehensive list of 200 rotating beers (28 drafts, 1 cask engine and around 150 in the bottle, including 15 vintage selections from the cellar) in a wide range of beer styles, but specializing in local and Belgian brews. Our kitchen rounds out the experience with culinary pairings that highlight flavor profiles of the impressive craft beer list. And our friendly and knowledgeable staff will seek to educate you about the world of beer, and guide you through the tavern’s extensive beer and food offerings.
