The Monk’s Kettle opened its doors in December 2007, kicking off the gastropub trend 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 sets the standard in pairing beer with food. Focusing on craft beer and upscale American cuisine, we carry a comprehensive list of over 200 rotating beers (28 drafts, 1 cask engine, and around 180 in the bottle, including 15 or so 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 knowledgable staff will seek to educate you about the world of beer, and guide you through the tavern’s extensive beer and food offerings.
