I have had one place in particular on my radar ever since it opened, and this was our chance.
After a stellar Peruvian dinner at Limon in the Mission, we ventured a few blocks further to Southern Pacific Brewing. This brewery opened in an empty warehouse, in a quiet part of the Mission neighborhood. But both those qualities turned out to be big positives for us. They've done a wonderful job converting the warehouse to an airy, modern space; it was plenty large to accommodate quite a crowd, yet partitioned off so it didn't feel empty. And though we didn't drive that night, there seems to be ample parking opportunities, which are often hard to come by in the Mission.
And there is plenty of outdoor seating in addition to the tables inside:
We sampled three of the beers they brew in the back of the warehouse:
- Extra India Pale Ale
- Amber Ale
- Pale Ale
I am often a tough critic on new breweries, since it always seems to take a while for the brewers to get their sea legs and produce consistent quality in high quantity. However, we were very impressed with all three styles we tried.

And for my friends: maybe this is the bait you need to book your next vacation!
