A brewpub located in the SoMa neighborhood in SF, 2 blocks from AT&T park. A very nice looking place. A large u-shaped bar with lots of tables. Standard pub menu; pizza, burgers, sandwiches, etc. They only have 7 or so beers on-tap. When I was there, only 3 of those were their own: watermelon wheat, IPA, and Hop Crisis (their DIPA). The rest were a decent selection of guest taps from Trumer, Firestone Walker and Dogfish Head.

This place obviously gets absolutely packed before, during, and after Giants game. This makes getting a beer at the bar a 10-15 minute wait. Your best bet is to go to their "beer garden", which is just a roped off area adjoining the building. You can then buy cans of their beers in the back of this area for $4 and pour it into a plastic cup.

Prices here are ridiculously high. $6 for a pint of Trumer Pils, $7 for a 13oz pour of Hop Crisis. I tried to use my AHA card, which states that you get happy hour prices all the time with the card. 1st round they wouldn't honor it because I bought guest beers and the discount "only applies to their own beers". 2nd round (I bought 2 Hop Crisis) they wouldn't honor it because "it doesn't apply to special beers". The AHA website doesn't mention either of these stipulations. Taking away "special beers" (whatever the hell that means) and "guest beers", that means the discount only applies on 2 beers: Watermelon Wheat and Brew Free or Die IPA.

This is a decent place to get a beer but I wouldn't make a special trip to go here. (1,508 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)
