Been here many times before and after Giants games. It is located two blocks from the stadium, so a great place to have a beer or three before heading to the game.

Selection is usually about the same. They do mix it up and have 1-2 different beers every time I stop in, which is nice. Quality is pretty good, definitely above average all around, with numerous offerings being very good. Beers are a bit pricey but to be expected in SF, I suppose. Their IPAs are generally excellent, with some of the stronger ones leading the pack. Every February they brew beers for Strong Beer Month, along with Magnolia, and these are usually excellent. Worth going out of your way for, for sure.

My experience with the atmosphere is skewed as I am there 95% of the time around a Giants game, so the crowd is mostly Giants fans and it is pretty crowded. They open the outside alleyway on nice gamedays, and this is a welcome addition.

The bar is nice, horseshoe shaped, with numerous seats, but it does get crowded. Tables dot the rest of the place, with a second level and an upstairs bar that is quite nice as well. If it's really crowded, check out the upstairs bar for possibly quicker service. Definitely worth it.

Overall, definitely worth checking out. They make some pretty solid beers with some definitely standing out. Located in the south of Market neighborhood, two blocks from the ballpark. About a 10-15 minute walk from the BART station (Montgomery). Recommended if you are anywhere in the area.

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.
