21st Amendment (Montgomery)
21st Amendment is a brewpub in downtown San Francisco, located 2 blocks from the San Francisco Giants ballpark. They serve their own beer along with an occasional guest beer or two. There’s a fine rotating selection of brews which almost always includes an IPA, a pale ale, a stout and a watermelon wheat. Their food ranges from bar snacks to full dinners. They keep sports as a secondary theme, with only 2 TV sets.
Extras: On Giants game days, they open a small outdoor area next to the pub. You can also sometimes get six-packs of their IPA, Monk’s Blood, Bitter American and Watermelon Wheat on the premises in cans, though you will generally see better prices in stores such as BevMo. Each February 21A brews special strong beers, and serves them all month long.
563 2nd St. (between Bryant and Brannan) • San Francisco (415) 369-0900
Walking from BART: Exit Montgomery BART on the south side of Market Street and go to 2nd Street. Turn down 2nd and walk 5 1/2 long blocks to 21st Amendment on the left. (Note: you can also walk from Embarcadero BART along the waterfront to the ballpark, and then go right on 2nd. It’s longer, but a great walk with sweeping waterfront views.)
