I have some bad news, boys and girls. They had stopped brewing their own beer by the time that we visited in July 2007. That being the case, it confounds me that they would still characterize themselves as a "brewery". It was too bad, because I would have liked to have hung out. The front of the restaurant was fenced in to store logs for their wood-fired oven. The double doors of the entryway incorporated stained-glass. Off to the left, upon entry, was a "Bring One, Take One" set of bookshelves. The lack of house-brewed beers coupled with what I considered to be a pedestrian selection made this a one-and-done.

Selection - ATTENTION: THIS PLACE IS NO LONGER A BREWERY!!! They only have a handful of beers on tap, and an equally small bottled selection. A couple good beers, but no hidden gems.
Atmosphere - Nice, quaint little place.
Quality - Everything we ordered was fresh and well made.
Service - Great service. The staff was more than happy to put up with our tipsy banter.
Food - The pizza was AMAZING! Some of the best pizza I've ever had. As a pizza aficionado, I highly recommend.
Value - A little pricey, but nothing out of the ordinary for the West Side of El Paso. The wife and I shared a house salad, two 10" pizzas and 2 beers for about $30 on the dot.

I am honored to be the first to review this place. I am a regular within walking distance. The reason to go is the food. The quality beer is a nice supplement.
Sunset is a converted Burger King. The outdoor play area is now a covered patio. Inside, there are club soccer jerseys and flags on the walls. There is also a book sharing wall and many steins behind glass. The bar area is cozy and near the fire of the oven.
The service is typically good. The servers are not extremely well versed in beer knowledge. They know what beers are on tap and they can identify the styles, that's about it.
I understand it used to be a brewpub, too bad I missed that. There are usually about 7-10 beers on tap at a time, nothing in bottles. None of the beers are specialties or very far off the beaten path. However, there are no macro domestics and the diversity in styles is decent. The beers are rotated often, causing a welcome anticipation with every visit. Good selection, but a small selection.
Brick oven pizzas, calzones, hearty salads, and rotating soups round out the menu. The food is always excellent. Some of the pizzas and salads seem like strange concoctions, but they are quite delicious. Food is the definite strength of this establishment.
Pints are just under $4 and each beer would be considered premium at any other bar. The pizzas can get expensive if you go crazy with the toppings. Otherwise, the price is very reasonable.
