Watching football and drinking beer

beer and curry

There are a ton of places to watch football in San Francisco – usually on Sunday – while drinking a few beers. The problem usually is not that you can’t find at least some good beer, it’s that it’s always the same good beer – no selection really. Yesterday I was lucky to hang out with my friend Dan — or San Francisco’s #1 NY Giants fan as he would like to be called — and enjoy a great football game, a relaxed, not-crowded bar, and some great and varied beer. The place is Kennedy’s Irish Pub and Curry House. What an odd, wonderful place it is. Larger then it should be. Lots of TVs. Hundreds of beers to choose from. And, if you so desire – Indian food. That’s right – you can have Indian food to soak up all the alcohol any time you want. I hear it is pretty good too. Their beer list on their website is a bit outdated but gives you an idea of the kind of beer they have. Yesterday we tried a bunch – one of my favorites was a beer I have had before – Ellie’s Brown from Avery. So chocolaty and smooth. Their prices are reasonable too. You can get 22 oz bottles and some imports for a bargain compared to what you will pay other places. So yeah, next time you are dreading drinking the same old beer while you watch your football game, come to Kennedy’s and try something a little different. Oh and don’t tell too many people – I like it not that crowded.

I almost forgot – they have the video game Big Buck Hunter in the back. It is loads of fun.

    They have great bartenders too. And don’t forget about the buy-one-get-one-free happy hour until 7.

    Also, I will take you on in a game of Buck Hunter any day.

    very true – can’t forget the bartenders.

    And next time you are in SF – there will be a buck hunter challenge!
