    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.

    No list of Bay Area bars worth visiting is complete without this staple. So much bench seating you're almost guaranteed to get a spot where you can soak up that vitamin D with your drink. Read more

    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.

    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

    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

    While it's changed quite a bit in the last six or so years — no longer is a bad look at a bartender enough to get you tossed out — the wonderful Bloody Marys have remained the same. 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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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
