The atmosphere in this place is great. The decor uses a lot of wood and the ceiling is open to the rafters. Lots of prohibition style decoration which is to be expected by the name. I was there during happy hour on a Thursday afternoon and there was a pleasant local crowd of about 15 people there. The bartender knew a lot of the names and it felt very welcoming even to an outsider. Happy hour had $3 pints, which was nice. The place is pretty big so it doesn't feel cramped at all. There were about 20 tables in the back that were not being used when I was there, and about 5 tables around the bar that were sparsly populated. The service was great. The bar tender actually came around from the bar to serve us and tell us about the beers. Not overly talkative, but certainly cordial and willing to interact with us as much as we wanted.

If I was a local I could see myself hanging out here to have a good beer. The selection seemed to be a bit minimal. They offered 5 house brews and several good bottles. It was definately a respectable selection, but they did not have everything a BA might want. I stuck to the house brews and enjoyed their IPA very much. The food looked and smelled good, but I didn't have any so I cannot comment much further. It's a bright and airy place and it is a lot of fun to drink there. I will certainly go back when I am in the area again. (1,377 characters)

This is my favorite bar before a giants game to grab a brew and some good food. The beer selection is fantastic with multiple beers on rotation so it is a little different by season. Rustic feel to the bar that highlights the beer but is an enjoyable and warm atmosphere (270 characters)

21A is not bad. It is within walking distance to AT&T Park so anyone that is in town to see a baseball game can alway pop in here. They are small, but keep in mind that they will have their new place in San Leandro pretty soon. (229 characters)

Very nice small microbrewery in San Francisco's SOMA area. All of their beers on tap but only one guest brew. Indoor seating was adequate, service was good, food was typical pub food of good quality but nothing special. (219 characters)

Stopped here around 6 on a Thursday with a buddy. Very crowded, lively atmosphere. Was glad to see the garage doors open to let the breeze in, made for good ambiance. Beer list was as expected, and the one Brew Free or Die that I had was very enjoyable. First beer of any kind from these guys, as I was visiting from Wisconsin.

Seems like the kind of place I'd like to frequent after work if I lived in town. Prices weren't bad either, considering the location and the talk I've heard of downtown drink prices. (511 characters)

Had a blast here. Went this summer with a buddy of mine and drank Hell or High watermelon all afternoon and met a bunch of really cool people. (142 characters)
