I have been to Sunset numerous times over the years and am finally writing a review after a recent visit. I really want to like this place, and my wife and I give it a chance every 6 months or so, but we always walk away disappointed. The recurring themes are: 1) something always tastes "off" with the draft beers; 2) they have a huge bottle list, but my first two or three selections are unavailable; and 3) it's filled with a rowdy bunch of college kids. My most recent trip just confirmed earlier impressions. The owner seems to be trying to do the right thing by offering unique beers, but the overall focus seems to be on quantity rather than quality.
The food is decent, but nothing out of the ordinary. The service is fine, but the staff don't seem particularly knowledgable about beer.
