Stopped here right after Toronado and expected to find something special on tap after everything I heard about it but found that only four of the six taps were working and they were all beers I had already had or can buy at home, they were Stone 12th Annivesary Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, Full Sail Prodigal Sun IPA, Marin Blonde, and Port Wipeout IPA, the place was set up weird with only like four stools at the tiny bar, then bottles lining the entire wall, I talked with the guy there for a while and found out that I was a day early for a great barrel aged fest they were putting on, they had a bunch of Drake's stuff lined up that was upwards of four or five years old, some Avery beer called Platypus, Angel's Share, Cuvee de Tomme, and many other great things, anyways the guy was cool and we talked quite a bit and he gave me some recommendations as far as some of their bottles go, this was the first and only place I have seen Lost Abbey's Witch's Wit, also Brewdog Paradox variations, too bad that stuff is fifteen dollars a bottle, selection was decent but not as great I was expecting, I ended up buying two things and they were Russian River Blind Pig IPA and Pliny the Elder, after tax the two bottles were ten bucks, I was on my way because I had people waiting for me outside in the car once they saw the tap list, other beers to go included Cantillon Cuvee Des Champions, both 21st Amendment brews that are available in cans, Lost Abbey Inferno and Gift of Magi, various Avery things, Alesmith stuff but it was ten or twelve dollars more than I pay at home, that is probably because it is such a pain to get it up here, this place was cool, a little expensive for my taste, but I will probably go back in the future and give it another go
