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.

I visited 21st Amendment while in town for work. Of course I am familiar with all of their widely-distributed beers, but it was cool to come visit the mothership, as it were. It's an old school pub build-out with a couple of TVs on the wall; it's very lived-in, which I like a lot. They had 9 beers on tap plus 6 canned 21A offerings. The beers I tried were solid enough; I rarely have too many complaints about their beer anyway. It's not exactly a must-stop for amazing, undiscovered beer, but it's a cool piece of history to visit.

Located down the street from [email protected] Park, great place to go to before and/or after a Giants game. That said it can get crowded so get there as early as you can!

Good vide. Low key on a Tuesday night. Busy but chill. Sitting at back table working on client work. Mostly males eating and drinking. Service was nice, and beer selection was good. About 10 on Tap and another 8 in cans. Food was slightly above average in general but less than average for what I get at other brew-pubs. Would come again for sure.

I recently stopped in here on a trip to Northern California. The inside hosts a bar and restaurant, and I believe they brew some beer at this location as well as their San Leandro production facility. The bartender was quite nice and attentive when I stopped in. They had around 12 beers on tap with a wide variety of styles represented, and cans of their year round stuff for sale as well. The quality of everything was good.
