Drove about thirty miles with the girlfriend tonight to check this place out, we also had a five dollar off coupon for a pizza, so that helped my cause when trying to convince here to drive here
Place was pretty layed back other than the ten kids screaming at the top of their lungs, small video game area with a bar area that takes up about one quarter of the place, other patrons there seemed nice
Pretty good beer for the most part, Hop Juice is definitely the highlight and would go back for that alone, you can gargle with that beer it is so hoppy
Service was pretty bad, took fifteen minutes to get my beer after ordering, pizza did not take too long, but every time I ordered a drink, I did not like waiting to eat the rest of my pizza because my second IPA did not make it to the table yet and I had nothing else to wash it down with except my girlfriend's diet coke
They had eight of their own beers on tap including Sweet Spot Hefeweizen, Sunset Amber, etc., as well as Stella Artois, a Wyder's Cider, and I think Bud and Bud Light
Beer prices were not bad at about four dollars a pint, while Hop Juice was five, pizza was super expensive, without the coupon it would have been twenty dollars for eight average size slices
Pizza was decent but that big, small amount of toppings, got bacon, ham, and pepperoni on ours and there were two to three peices of each topping on every slice, very minimal
Beer is better than the food, service sucked in my opinion, but not a bad place at all, really want to try their Russian Imperial Stout, Witch Doctor if I ever see it there
Check it out if you are in the Inland Empire, one of the few above average beer spots, and if you are a double IPA fan like me, Hop Juice is the only way to go

This Oggie's location is the only place to get decent beer within walking distance of my apartment. Went on a Friday night and it was surprisingly not very crowded. Has the basic sports bar setup, big screens and sports deco adorning the walls. The beer selection was alright, mostly their beers with a few macros and some locals. My first choice, Hop Juice, was out so I ordered the IPA and my waitress insisted on bringing me a taster because "it tastes different then regular beer." Wow. Anyway, the food was decent, although overpriced and the service was extremely slow. My wife and I were there for about two and a half hours and I only had one beer and her soda was refilled once. I couldn't understand it considering how empty the place was. Due its close proximity to my place and the fact that there is good beer to be had there, I'll probably end up going back. Although its definitely not a place I'd go out of my way to try.

This is a pizza restaurant with TV's covering all walls. The bar is in another room and has a couple TV's to watch if you're sitting at the bar. Every time I've been there they have had all their house beers available, along with Hop Juice, which is probably their main attraction for beer geeks. It's an Ok double IPA. What I really like about this place is the pizza and breadsticks. The beer in my opinion is just average. It's an ok place to eat and drink and hang out for a while.
Other than the Oggi's beers they have a couple other macro's on tap, and you can pick up growlers from this location.

Stopped off for a Friday lunch recently. First off, I have to say something about the location, which plays into atmosphere. This is located in a fairly new, but very poorly designed shopping complex, with minimal/bad parking, connected by very poorly designed roads, filled with very bad drivers. I felt like I was taking our lives into our hands just getting into this place and finding a parking spot. OK, rant over.
The place is a typical looking pizza joint/sports bar with lots of sports memorabilia, lots of sports on TV, and is bigger than it looks from outside. But having said that, it just wasn't comfortable, if you know what I mean.
About 10 taps, 6 of Oggi's beer, 1 or 2 Green Flash (more below), a couple BMC types, and Stella. A few Jager and tequila shot stations told me more about this place. 3 Oggi's taps were off (3 out of 6, that's a pretty bad percentage), but I found they had a Double IPA, which made me happy. They had their IPA, Scottish Ale, and Hop Juice(?) available though. I assumed it was Hop Juice (never having had it), but from cruising on this site, I now think it may have been Green Flash DIPA- I don't know and they didn't tell me. But anyway, it was served ice cold, it took half an hour just to warm a bit.
Staff/service was good enough, but they didn't have enough- the manager(?) was doubling as bartender and tripling as second cook.
Pizza was decent, but all crust- way too much bread on this thing. That's a nice way to keep costs down, as the crust (bread) is the cheapest part of the pizza. But the toppings were tasty and plentiful. A bit pricy.
Maybe I'm being too negative, but I really didn't care for the experience. I had a nice DIPA (whatever it was) once it warmed up and I could taste it, but it didn't make me want to return.
