21st Amendment is a brewpub in downtown San Francisco, located 2 blocks from the San Francisco Giants baseball park. 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, something dark, plus the crow-pleasing watermelon wheat in the summer. Food ranges from bar snacks to full dinners. They keep sports as a secondary theme to socializing, with 3 TV sets. There is a small loft area with a second bar, sometimes used by groups.
Extras: On Giants game days, they open a small outdoor area next to the pub. The pub originally hand-canned beers here, and the company now cans at a brewing facility across the bay in San Leandro. Each February 21A brews special strong beers, and serves them all month long. A few blocks away at the ballpark is the Public House and their extensive craft beer list, and the Black Hammer taproom is also a short walk.

Walking from BART: Exit BART through the exit labeled B2 onto the south side of Market Street and go to 2nd Street. Turn left on 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.)
