    Check out "SF's No. 1 Beer Garden" which offers a charm that just can't be duplicated. Bring a light sweater, snag a picnic bench outside, and feast on pitchers of beer and tamales. Read more

    It is nice to sit outside with a friend for a beer in the afternoon. It can be a little cliquey here, but mostly nice enough. They have so many beers on tap, there's something for everyone.

    great beer garden type of place to chill with a cold one on a warm day. plenty of shade, unlike the open Biergarten. immensely popular, so get comfortable with the (mostly hipster) crowd and noise.

    Zeitgeist is bustling with some of the best beers and burgers in town (keep an eye out for the Tamale Lady for a great late-night snack). Looking to go hard? Order a "double beer." Thank us later. Read more

    Take a look at its extensive & impressive draft beer list—almost all of which is available by the pitcher. Fair warning: Drinking Total Domination IPA by the pitcher ($19) is dangerous, if delicious. Read more

    The only thing that is missing from this place are some sort of heat lamps so that folks can enjoy the evenings outside when it gets cold, but other that, it's a dope spot to grab a mason jar or 2

    Whatever cultures collided to bring a beer garden, a BBQ pit, and a biker bar together did it right. Snag a Spaten Premium Lager. It sticks with your ribs. And there will be a lot of ribs.

    If you find that you cross faded wrong, the ladies bathroom is a perfect place to bring a friend, lay your hues down and have her play with your hair till the room stops spinning.

    CASH ONLY. NO PHOTOS/VIDEOS. Besides that, the guys are completely nice jerks. Hang by the bar and get to know them, they have so many hilarious things and stories to talk about.

    Popular bar in Mission with a true alternative feeling. They also have an outdoor patio so it's a must visit during sunny days. Protip: $5 burgers which are really yummy!

    Here you'll find one of the best Bloody Marys in town, dozens of craft beers on tap, not to mention a darn good cheeseburger - all served up with no-nonsense attitude.

    Perhaps my favorite bar in life. Slight anarchist vibe, mixed with cheap (for SF) drinks, plus a killer outdoor area makes for a fabulous daytime drinking spot.

    Hammer in some ultra bonuses w/ Slayer at yer back and a double whiskey coke in yer head, impressing all the punks and hard fuckers on the Attack From Mars and World Cup Soccer tables. 75¢ a play!

    Home to what may be the Bay Area's best non-fast-food burger. Called the "Gardenburger," it's huge, juicy & topped with freshness. There may also be homefires involved. Read more

    Day Drinking. Popular mission biker bar with large outdoor beer garden and BBQ, great for sunny day drinking. Great Bloody Mary’s. Motto: “Warm Beer, Cold Women”.

    SF: A real biker bar with heart. It’s the last bastion of the pre dot-com rebel/artist. Park benches on a dirt lot; it's like drinking in a junkyard and is one of SF's most loved hangouts. -IFC Staff

    Worst establishment in recent memory. Incredibly rude staff. Intentionally hurt my friendly mannered female friend. Honestly, the single most awful experience in SF. Wish I did not give them my money

    Can't go wrong here. So many good beers on tap, including Grand Cru and Damnation on tap. The locals rave about the bloodys. Sit outside in the bier garden.

    Spectacular beer selection, excellently priced. Come here! Oh, except, based on how packed it was at 5pm on a Monday, maybe don't come here if you like sitting down.

    Avoid getting kicked out. Don't stand on tables, take photographs, bring piñatas, bring ANY outside alcohol, annoy other patrons, sass the bouncers, look like a hippie/yuppie, ask too many questions. Read more

    Chill here on a (unusually) warm day in the City.Large bench seating makes it easy to make new friends (who will probably buy you a beer).Free matches with naked bitches on 'em a plus.TAMALE LADY <3

    Dive bar with a surprisingly large (and crowded) back yard. Over a dozen taps, and grilled cheese sandwiches. A trendier crowd shows up on the weekends.

    Picky a sunny day and skip out of work at 3 or so. You'll have the back patio to yourself and a few people of similar bent for an hour or two. Pure brilliance.

    The bloody mary is award-winning, getting the nod from both SF Weekly and The SF Bay Guardian (RIP). It’s classic but bold and garnished to the brim with pickled goodies. Read more

    Probably the best open bar place to hang out with friends amongst noisy crowded ambience. Smoking is allowed too. Try the burning daylight.

    Great when your want a low-key dive bar, with an outdoor patio. One of the few bars that still have that vibe that SF used to have before the tech boom hit

    A beer garden with bikers, a jukebox with local bands & a back patio full of picnic tables. As recommended by Travel Channel host, Anthony Bourdain.

    Surly bartenders, scummy clientle, and scary bouncers. Totally worth braving all of that for the epic beer selection, and awesome beer garden in back. Read more

    Divey bar with an awesome patio out back and games indoors. Cash only. They sell pitchers of all of the numerous beers on tap.

    Good for large groups if you can find a spot on the benches in the great outdoor space, and extensive draft beer selection.

    Order up one of their 48 beers on tap or go big with their hefty liquor menu. Make it a "double" to get it served up in a massive mason jar. Read more

    The outdoor side window is a gamble. Sometimes the line is short and service is speedy but often the bartenders just ignore you.

    CANADIANS: the Bloody Mary's here are nothing like Caesars. However, expect your drink to be at least half vodka. I still prefer clamato juice.

    Get a pitcher of something local and don't forget to bring cash. They have a killer beer garden around the back.

    Don't miss the tamale lady, you'll regret it! If you do, it's okay, at least there's an awesome beer garden to hang out in.
