Inscription. This building is the last of the Barbary Coast saloons. Prior to the great earthquake and fire of 1906, this was the site of the infamous Billy Goat Saloon, operated by Pigeon-Toed Sal. After reconstruction, the original Andromeda Saloon opened here in 1907. World Boxing Champion Jack Dempsey worked the door in 1913 before his historic July 4, 1919 fight in which he took the title from Jess Willard with a TKO. The massive ‘Punkah’ ceiling fan is vintage 1916. The magnificent flame mahogany bar, tile spittoon and other features were restored in 1975. The facility became the Albatross Saloon in 1977. In 1985, Allan Paul established the San Francisco Brewing Company. Master Coppersmith Fred Zaft handcrafted the unique copper brew kettle. This is the city’s first and the nation’s fourth operating brew pub since the end of Prohibition.
