Time Out says

A craft brewery in the Ferry Building with outdoor tables for soaking up the sun.

This Presidio-based brewery is instantly recognizable for its colorful cans, which are sold throughout the city, so it’s fitting that its mini-beer-garden is backed by a giant aluminum wall of them. Founded in 2014 by brothers Tyler and Justin Catalana, the indie brewery now makes nearly 20 varieties of craft beer, from a smoked altbier with charred manzanita to a tropical fruit-infused IPA. This Ferry Building kiosk, which opened in early 2016, is its first brick and mortar presence in SF. You’ll find six taps with rotating beer picks, plus growlers and chilled six-packs to-go. The handful of long tables can be claimed on a first-come, first-served basis—a scenic spot for people watching or escaping the Ferry Building tourist throngs. In addition to brews, the spot serves hot dogs from Golden Gate Meat Company and Firebrand Bread pretzels.
