Visited March 22, 2013.

Iíve been hearing about this place for a while now but havenít stopped in even though I walk right by it on the way to 21A numerous times a year. Pleasantly surprised by the 30 or so taps. Some quality stuff on there like Speakeasy, Anchor, Sierra Nevada, Ballast Point, Stone, etc but also some obscure beers (i.e. ticks). Ordered a MateVeza Morpho which tasted like tea and hibiscus, and a Moonlight Toasted malt likka (definitely tasted like burnt toast). Prices were $6/pint, which is to be expected.

Service was friendly enough but they were also kind of busy so we had to flag them down to get noticed. The layout is a bit confusing since they have two bars and it seems that half the beers are available on one side and half on the other. We ordered our ticks, paid cash, and moved to the other side to sit down.

Would definitely stop in here before a game or if someone was visiting and wanted to see the stadium or some other sites in the area (like the wharf).

On a normal week day, this is a great bar. The food is surprisingly EXCELLENT. Before and during giants games, itís insane. The entire china basin area is insane during those times so donít bother. If you are here during the world series, WOW!!

Iíd imagine this place gets ridiculous during a Giants game, but luckily I stopped in during the off-season, so it was relatively mellow. That said, the service was absolutely awful. Took quite awhile to even be acknowledged by a bartender, despite a pretty small number of people at the bar. The draft list is nice with a few specialty items, but overall itís not going to blow you away. The food looked pretty decent as well.

Great place to grab a beer on your way into the game (they sell beers to-go) and even better on non-gamedays. 24 taps (2 casks) and an outstanding bottle selection featuring International staples and Domestic gems. Things get crazy busy before baseball games, but the staff seems to do a good job of handling the crowds. Really solid elevated pub grub, fresh ingredients. Prices are pretty consistent with the SOMA area (which is expensive) but much cheaper than inside the ballpark.

Great place connected to the outstanding AT&T park, home of the Giants! Really this is one of the most beautiful ballparks in all MLB, and I equate this bar to be part of that. Iíve only been here on game day, and itís usually packed. You kind of have to fight your way to the bar and then get the bartenders attention, but considering this the service is really good. Iíve never had to wait long to get a beer. The selection is really good. A lot of regular craft selections but there always seems to be something unusual on tap. The best part about this place is you can take your beers into the stadium. I can still taste the older viscosity from a plastic cup sitting in the upper deck on a cold SF night! Pure awesomeness.

Cool place that looks like itís built into AT&T Park. It was the middle of the afternoon and the Giants were out of town - so mostly empty. Got a sampler with Green Flash Saison, a Speakeasy, a Deschutes, and one other I canít remember. Twenty or so taps. Appetizers were good. If this were my home ballpark, Iíd be pretty stoked to get this selection before a game.

Good for what it is. Right next to the stadium and you can access the park from inside. I was surprised at the selection and quality of brews available and pricing was reasonable. I went before a ballgame and it was quite crowded, but a good place to knock a few back before going to a beautiful ballpark. I would recommend getting there a while before the game to get a seat as it can be a madhouse up close to gametime. A lot of solid typical west coast brews-no big surprises or hard to find beers, just solid about 24 taps. Not really worth seeking out if you arenít going to the game but a great place before or after.

Actual location would be adjacent to AT&T Park, not "in" it. Meaning itís not just for ball game (or concert) patrons. But, to have access to these beers at a ball game is an exciting development. Excellent beer list, with 24 taps (including two hand pumps) and 24 bottles (including 6 of the 7 Trappist breweries). Prices are SOMA high, but lower than what the ballpark charges for lesser beers.

Public House just opened this past week and replaces the Acme Chop House at 24 Willie Mays Plaza in AT&T Park. Beer loving Giants fans can rejoice--we now have a craft beer bar in the ballpark. 21 of their 24 taps are dedicated to craft beer, (they do have Bud Light, Stella, and Guinness) and there are two hand-pumps, one of which is a house English style best bitter brewed for Public House by Magnolia. The tap focus is on local beer, (80% according to their website) with lots of good stuff from up and down the state, as well as a few picks from across the country from Allagash and Ommegang. The bottles have a little wider scope, with some good Belgian selections (yes, they have Orval) and some German, English, and Czech stuff. You donít have to have a game ticket to get in, but they have their own doorway to the park in the back of the room that you can enter through. The best part is that they will pour any beer into plastic for you to take into your seat, also allowing in-and-outs to get more beer during a ballgame. The one bartender that I talked to was knowledgeable about the selection, suggesting good alternates when the keg of Ommegang Belgian Pale Ale kicked, and they had already changed a few things over from the printed menu that they had, so taps seem to be rotating often. This really is an awesome development for the ballpark, but it probably wonít make too big of a splash outside of game days unless they step up the game with special events or at least lower prices. Why pay eight dollars for a pint of Magnolia when I can get it at the brewery for cheaper? If Iím going into the park thats not a bad price, but I guess I just canít see myself coming here just for the beer when a place like Toronado across town is under selling it on everything and has just as good and probably a better selection. Public House is very much in its infancy though, so only time will tell...
