This was the first brewery I hit in San Francisco. I was eager to make up for some time spent brewery-less in the Mojave Desert (there's no water or people, so no beer - just lots of cool plants.) So, I hit 21st Amendment in mid-February, right smack in the middle of Strong Beer Month. During the month of February, 21st and Magnolia (both in San Fran) brew ridiculously strong beers of many types, as well as their barleywine release. If you drink six such of these "strong beers" between the 2 breweries, you get a free snifter.

Maybe I'll point out that it's not the BEST idea to try to drink all 6 beers in one sitting. Especially since 3 of them left me buzzed enough to feel the need to wildly hang off of cable cars for about a half hour while it wore down.

I liked 21st Amendment. It was very crowded and it's located near the Giants baseball stadium and probably gets even more packed during and after games. It had 2 levels, and you could also sit in the bar area, which was right up front with lots of windows near the street. It was a bit pricey, but most of San Francisco is pricey, so it wasn't overwhelming for the city.

Oh, and apparently, they are also releasing 2 beers in cans: the 21A IPA and the Watermelon Wheat, which is pretty unique for a microbrewery. (1,289 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)

Their beer is okay, but not very creative. I wouldn't trouble myself to come here again. (88 characters)
