Smithwicks beer on tap in SF/Marin/Sonoma?

I am looking for Irish pubs with Smithwicks on tap. Any Smithwicks fans out there with a suggestion of a bar?

  1. I had a Smithwicks for lunch today at Harrington's on Front street between California and Sacramento. Its a decent FiDi bar with several screens for sports events.

      Smithwicks is widely available in SF now, pretty much all the Irish and English bars have it. Elephant and Castle on Clay St around the corner from Harringtons have a good Smithwicks and I saw yesterday they are doing some promos for it on Tues May 1 between 6-8.

    2. The Irish Bank! . One of my favorite pubs around Union Square.

      1. The Phoenix Pub and The Liberties in the Mission has it. Edinburgh Castle, while Scottish, has it as well.

        1. I assume that if you're dedicated enough to seek it out on a Chowhound board, you know and insist on using the correct pronunciation: "Smit-ick's"?

          Beer snobs forever!

          1. SONOMA: Not a recommendation (I haven't peeked in), but I know The Black Rose Pub in Santa Rosa should have Smithwicks on tap (just in case you're stuck "up north" and cringing for a Smithwicks).

            MARIN: No places I know about. It's been a few years since I've been to The Mayflower Pub in San Rafael, but I know they did NOT have Smithwicks (I would have noticed it). Bummer.
