The Coors Light Silver Bullpen is located at the top of the park near the center field bleachers in section 145. Guests can expect Coors classics including Coors Light and Blue Moon. Blue Moon is a light Belgian-style wheat ale with a hint of orange so it has that perfect summery taste you’ll crave near the end of the season.
Beers at Pete’s Tavern
If you’re looking for a pre-game pub experience, then Pete’s Tavern is the place to go. This bar and restaurant features 12 draft beers and a slew of bottles. Pete’s Tavern is conveniently located just blocks away from AT&T Park. Looking for an IPA? You’ll find Lagunitas IPA and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale on draft. Fans of deeper flavor can enjoy the Black Butte Porter or a standard Guinness.
Beers at The Taproom at Anchor Plaza
Are you a local beer lover? Then check out the selection at The Taproom at Anchor Plaza. The Taproom and beers are owned by Anchor Brewing, a homegrown Giants-alliance brew company. The Taproom is located inside AT&T Park and features San Fran favorites such as Anchor Porter, Old Foghorn Ale, and Anchor Small Beer.
Beers at Tres Mexican Kitchen
Although Tres is known for its fiesta food and drinks, it also has a selection of Mexican draft beers. Enjoy the infamous bacon-wrapped hot dog with a festive cold one. The long lines don’t lie, as Tres is a Giants fan favorite. Find the Tres stand in two locations: at the promenade level, section 133 and the view level, section 314. There’s also a Tres local neighborhood restaurant where you can grab even more grub and brews after the game.
Beers at Public House
Public House has, by far, one of the best beer selections near AT&T Park. Public offers 20 craft brews on tap. Public House takes pride in their beverage list. Local San Francisco brews (Marin Brewing Company) and California’s finest (North Coast Brewery and Firestone Walker) take center stage. You’ll also find Dogfish Head, Shipyard, Highwater, Sierra Nevada, and much more. Public House is walking distance from the ballpark so it’s easy come, easy go.
