49ers Packers Playoffs: Best San Francisco Bars To Watch The Niners (PHOTOS)


When the San Francisco 49ers play the Green Bay Packers in this Saturday's NFC Divisional Playoff game, the matchup is sure to bring back 90s nostalgia for Bay Area football fans.

Back then, the epic playoff matchups between the teams' two legendary quarterbacks, the 49ers' Steve Young and the Packers' Brett Favre, were an almost yearly occurrence.

The quarterbacks in this weekend's matchup, the 49ers' Colin Kaepernick and the Packers' Aaron Rodgers, may not (yet) have quite the stature of those giants of yore. But there's one twist to the tale of the two QBs that makes for great bar fodder.

According to CBS San Francisco, both players grew up in California's Central Valley, with Rodgers rooting for the 49ers and Keapernick dreaming of playing for the Packers. Now, over a decade later, they're on the opposite teams.

When the two franchises faced off earlier this year, the 49ers won 30-22, but that was with Alex Smith leading the team and Kaepernick warming the bench.

We've assembled a list of some of the best bars in San Francisco for getting your pigskin fix. Kickoff time is 1:25 p.m.
