Fairly small brewpub near Giants stadium on 2nd street. Waited 1.5 hours to get seated on a random Monday night (no Giants game). Ordered apps and beers at the bar while we waited. Nice selection of fried items! Dinner was solid; some nice choices that are basically upscale bar food. Beers were all good. Lots of IPAs and wet hopped pale ales on tap when we were there. Worth a visit.
Don’t bother going anywhere near this place before a Giants game unless you go real early! I had to return a few days after the Giants game when nobody was around.
The food was decent but the draft list really didn’t get me two excited. The bartender was very friendly and talkative and we chatted beer for a good while. The draft list was focus around hops (three different IPA’s) yet not one DIPA available. Back In Black was on but I had already sampled that years before. Overall, I guess the draft list is hit or miss. And really even for SAn Fran the bill was a tad on the high side.
Finally getting around to rating the place, since I’ve been there a number of times. Not the best place, but good choice for pregame. IF you can catch them when they have some of their high end creations available, it gets interesting. Otherwise the beer menu is good, but not amazing. All that said, they’ve been around a long time, and are always part of any conversation around SF craft beer.
Solid option that’s stumbling distance from the ballpark. I’ve always had a soft spot for 21A beers as they were early adopters of two of my favorite beer ’movements’ - Cans and Session-able beers. Beers are consistently very solid with the occasional one-off gem on the draft-only list @ the pub, and the food is good, generally standard brewpub sandos and burgers, et al.
Stopped in Friday afternoon and it was pretty full, possibly from the sports crowd since it emptied up towards the end of our visit. Decent sized U shaped bar with a good amount of tables. Table service was good. 10 drafts available including one guest tap. Flights available in sets of 5 so you can easily tick everything in one visit. Beers included their usual canned offerings and a few draft exclusives. Small but solid bottle/can list. Food was good, tried the cheese curds and tacos. Solid place.
Walked into the brewpub today to pick up some of their cans to take home, only to find out that they were out. None the less, the atmosphere was great with a fairly large bar and a seating area for families or people enjoying a meal. They had around 8 of their brews on tap, I elected to try the IPA and wasn’t dissapointed. The bartender wasn’t extremely attentive even though there were only about 4 patrons around at the time but all in all it was a good experience. I will definitely call first next time to make sure they have cans in stock.
Picked a bad time and it was just way too busy but managed to wrangle my way to the bar for a swift one. Nice interior, open, airy space on a hot sunny day. Smaller than I expected the venue to be. Made a dash out quickly though, I think it was game day, so folk were steady pre-match boozin’.
Stopped in for dinner after hitting up Toronado and City beer. Busy place on a Thursday night, with a 20 minute wait for a table. Looks like a pretty fun place, with an upstairs bar, restaurant and full menu. Staff was helpful, food was good. They were running seven taps when I was there including a guest tap from Drakes, plus a half dozen or so cans for sale. Nice place, would have like to see something more unusual on the tap list - no sours, wilds, or BA stuff.
