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.

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.
