    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

    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

    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.

    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”.

    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

    There is a bike rack on the patio so you can bring your bike inside rather than locking it up on the street.

    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

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

    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

    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.

    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.
  • SFGate M.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

    Lots of options on draft and I love that they clearly mark the Bay Area brewed beers! Hawk Hill was great if you like wheat beers!

    Awesome drinks (beer) and quite solid food options. The beer garden is just a great place to hang out on a Saturday (or any other).

    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

    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.

    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

    $4 grilled cheese w/ tomato is a delicious compliment to any pitcher of beer. The cooks are always super friendly as well.

    Bloody mary's, hangover breakfast and fresh air on the patio. The best place to be on a Saturday morning when you're in recovery mode from Friday night.

    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

    Cool bar, some good music, but some wild variations as well, probably due to the juke box. Still, cool bar.
