Falling somewhere between a beer garden and a biker bar, Zeitgeist is a staple for both Mission natives and the tech crowd alike. Featuring a good selection of fairly priced beers on tap, as well as unexpectedly knowledgeable bartenders and a full kitchen to boot, it’s almost never empty. If the weather’s right, head to the relatively uncrowded back porch and yard, where it’s easy to forget you’re in the heart of the city.
