Food and atmosphere was very pleasing, waiters and waitresses nice, food average, however;
if you're serious about the quality of the beer you want to enjoy then, you may not want to purchase a growler and refill here because they won't even bother rinsing out the growler you bring in with water or a cleaning solution. Any quality brewmaster would insist on having his/her staff trained and proactive about having a clean growler go back to their dedicated clientele. That does not seem to be the case here at Hollister brewery so for that reason only I have to score it very low in the category of quality.

We stopped in at Hollister on the way home from the Firestone Invitational. It's more of a restaurant with a brewery in it than the other way around. There is a main seating area and a smallish bar area. The brewery equipment is behind glass adjacent to the bar. We sat at the bar and got pretty good service even though it was busy. They had about 13 of their own beers on tap with a wide variety of styles represented. I got a 6 pack sampler for $7 but they sell individual tasters, half pints, pints, and growlers. The quality of the beer was good and served in proper glassware. I also had a pulled pork sandwich and duck fat fries and it was pretty tasty (moreso the fries). Prices were reasonable for beers but a bit expensive for food in my opinion. I would stop in again to see what's new if I were in the area.

Good food, good service, good beer. A bit pricey, but not too outrageous for the area. A great selection of beers and local wine, and the food is a quite a step up from your normal pub fare.
