Since last season’s NFL playoff games, the Bay Area has become home to a bona fide contender and lots of new gastropubs, bars and restaurants where you can watch the aforementioned San Francisco 49ers.
Here are six that have opened in the past year or so:
Brew City Grill, Campbell: This new Hamilton Avenue hangout features upscale pizzas, burgers and fries, plus enough interesting craft beers on tap — 24 — to fuel the 49er Faithful. 651 W. Hamilton Ave.
Growler USA Kitchen & Taphouse, San Jose: This Colorado-based chain of microbrewery pubs has finally brought its wall of 100 beer taps — plus bar bites — to California.
