The Fort Point taproom in the Ferry Building has everything you need in a bar, and that makes it a great place to come to in a pinch or when you want a quick drink. They have a bunch of beers from Fort Point, including their smaller brews from Black Sands Brewery, plus giant pretzels, hot dogs, and long, standing tables to enjoy them at. It’s all outdoors, so you’ll want to come here when it’s nice out - or at least when it’s only a one-sweater day down by the water.
