The basic 21st Amendment product, beer, needs improvement. The main stay is Watermelon Wheat brewed with a very heavy portion of watermelons per batch. The taste is OK but its not a beer drinkers beer. At the root is the brew master. He is an owner and it is obvious that he enjoys the limelight as brew master but I am sorry to have to say that he does not have a good taste for beer itself. If he did many of the beers brewed would not see the light of day. There is something called ego that is constantly getting the way. Taste must be fully objective and this goes for beer too. As an example the effort to see how hoppy a beer can get, before it becomes not good to the taste, needs to be rethought with a greater effort toward consistency of taste and flavor rather than an exercise in food bombast. Subtly is a goal to strive for. Perhaps a lesson learned would be a study of other brew pubs to see their progression through the early years of brewing and the efforts to focus on 4 or 5 beers of such quality taste as to be prize winners consistently. The 21st Amendment is a fun place, the people are very friendly, and the food is especially good. Now lets concentrate on 1, start with one, prize-winning beer and progress from there. Too bad Motor Oil was lost forever.

A bit upscale (no surprise given the location), but nice sitting in the front in the sun. Service was mediocre, and the beers didn’t impress.

Packed with Mets fans before the Giants/Mets game on Friday. Lotsa people, sweaty, loud, and a bit tipsy. Beer is not too bad, with some interesting guest brews. Bartender was helpful, though overworked. Probably better on non-game nights.

Large open room divided into bar area and dinning area. Has a open room upstairs that covers the back quarter of the building. Mostly empty when i was there (on a Monday night). Even though the service was not real fast, the bartender was extremely freindly and helpful. She almost insisted thet I walk out with her intire stack of coasters when I asked if I could take a few (must have been 100 in the stack), only took 4. I was on a beer tour vacation so was only having 2 or 3 at each place. Like most places I went in SF I will return to this place as well.

fairly large space, two levels. lots of young people and post Giants game crowds. funny that they have some good beers at a place right near the ball park, but the SF/ SOMA area drinker is a little more sophisticated! kind of wierd how it’s either dead or packed with people.

Very good food. Nice bar tender, although I don’t think she was too beer savvy. Open atmosphere with lots of bar space and plenty of tables. Beers were decent but not extravagent. Got a cool tshirt there. This was our dinner stop one night of Toronado BWF so I was hard to please.

Went here during Strong Ale Month. Sat at the bar. Pretty good beer and food. Pretty new looking location. Nice building, but a bit lacking on personality.

Not bad. They brew some decent stuff and they also brew ordinary stuff. Good proximity to the ball park though.

I really enjoyed my first visit to the 21st Amendment, more for the quality of the beers than for anything else. However, I heard from somebody I went with afterwards when I was complaining that their Barley Wine wasn’t available that he saw it was available on a secondary sign. We had a couple of appetizers which were excellent, although fairly small. The prices were good, so I would have preferred to pay a little more to get more food. Happy hour pints are $3.00, a great value from 2:30-5:30. The regular price of $4.50 is a little steep, but that is Frisco for you. The interior was nice. If you aren’t there to eat, seating is limited, unless you come during one of their pre-game Giants’ deals where they open up a &quo;beer garden&quo; outside. Nice idea, but only a sliver of the garden is in the sun by the time it opens, and I would imagine that most days, like the day we were there, it is rather cold sitting in the shade. From what I know of the SF beer scene, this is one of the premier brewpubs in town from a beer perspective.

I don’t know how old some of the comments below are, but I suspect they are not recent. This place is very big: a bar area with a smallish bar and window seats, a huge dining room, and a large mezzanine with a second bar (where they keep the hand pump), darts, and such. The food here is excellent--great burger, fries, grilled calamari, shoestring sweet potatoes--honestly some of the best food you’ll find in a West Coast brewpub. Handily beats other SF brewpubs on all fronts (e.g., Beach Chalet, Thirsty Bear, Magnolia). Crowded as hell on game days.
