St. Vincent Tavern & Wine Merchant

San Francisco, California

Owner David Lynch, former wine director at Quince, keeps a smartly abridged beer list, with 8 drafts and 20 bottles. Lynch favors light, bright brews low in alcohol but high in flavor—like Shoreman’s Wild, a dark, sour ale with some of the acidity you’d find in a Sauvignon Blanc. No pulling pints here. The preference is 8- and 12-ounce pours that complement chef Bill Niles’s locally sourced cooking.
