I used to always go here when I was in SF, but I believe I'll start skipping it. The place always seems to be jammed, and the noise level is crushing. The food is actually very good and not too expensive for San Francisco, but it's not a very enjoyable place to eat.

Beers are on the hoppy side, and I have not had many draft brews that have impressed me at all. The canned beers they have started doing are the much better way to get a taste of the brewery. The bar area has just a few pleasant little tables as well as the strategically placed bar. The girl servers have always been helpful, though often harried. I have to mention the awful bathroom, truly a stench like a real English dive bar full of Saturday night drunks.

Directly across the street to the west is a narrow street called South Park which opens up into an actual park. It's an intriguing classic San Francisco enclave that runs a long block to the west.

Travelled there week before Super Bowl. Close to ATT park. Decent vibe. Good bartenders. Was mildly disappointed in take-home options, but not the tap selection options as it was the beginning of beer week in SF. They brought out some great brews from the cellar, including a 2010 Lower de Boom, which was outstanding. Food was good - cheese curds and wings.

Went on a Friday night when AC/DC was playing down the street at AT&T park and the place was rockin', I'm talking shoulder to shoulder beer drinkin' rockers looking for a beer and a bite to eat. The atmosphere there is great and although the service wasn't great I have to give them the benefit of the doubt because the crowd was huge, I'm sure on another night things would be more expedient. Beer selection is great and the food is adequate for keeping your stomach full while your drinking. A long line waiting for restroom use wasn't pleasant but expected. Next Giants game at the ball park will merit another visit.

A must stop for anyone visiting San Francisco as it is very accessible from public transportation and has a very good selection of beers! (stay away from the gumbo!)

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

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.

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.
