Finally getting around to rating the place, since Iíve 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, theyíve been around a long time, and are always part of any conversation around SF craft beer.
Solid option thatís stumbling distance from the ballpark. Iíve always had a soft spot for 21A beers as they were early adopters of two of my favorite beer ímovementsí - 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 wasnít dissapointed. The bartender wasnít 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 booziní.
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.
A nice place, with friendly service and decent prices, but I find the beers a tad boring. Didnít get to try the food, but at least it looked good. A bit of the beaten track this place, but easy to reach by bus or cab.
Rating as a place to go before ball games. Itís always busy, the staff is overwhelmed and doesnít really make an effort, and the pours are small for the money (they donít even make an effort to fill the undersized plastic cups w or w/o a head). Beer can be hit or miss.
