I've been to their old location dozen times. They moved to a new place just up the street not too long ago converged at Commonwealth, Sante Fe & Highland, which is pretty easy to find.
I have been to the new location just a few times and it got nice, airy environment. I come here at non-rush hours so most times at most just 3-4 people here. I could imagine the nightmarish crowds on a weekend night. Excellent service all their staffs are very friendly.
Probably my favourite local brewery aside from Bruery. Most notably they brew an excellent varieties of IPA's. All of their other styles are above-average and drinkable. I would come here repeatedly.

Stopped in to score Knuckle Sandwich IIPA in bottles but it was already gone. Had a few beers and I do enjoy their Black Phoenix. The seating inside is limited, outside seating is more expansive, and there was only one person working the bar. There wasn't many people there but it was early Saturday. I think they need put a little bit more into the scenery, I've been to establishments that are aesthetically pleasing. But the beer, atmosphere, and service are great. It's worth a visit.

Did a flight although missed out on the vaunted Knuckle Sandwich. Beers were good but not great. Taproom was in a garage with plenty of room but it was early. No food available that I knew of, service was satisfactory. Probably would go back but only to try Knuckle Sandwich as competition is fierce in Cali.

Bootleggers is definitely a cool place to hangout out and have a couple beers. In the last three weeks I've made a stop here about 4 or 5 times with friends. Really good selection of beers to choose from. Good service and friendly employees. Seating area is mostly outdoors since the benches inside usually get taken first. They have arcade games and a tv (usually showing sports) inside and oversized jenga outside. If you get hungry you can order for delivery from the pizza joint next door. It is also pet friendly so you can chill with your dog while you enjoy some nice beers. I can see myself being a regular here.

A little pricey, but otherwise a great time here. Mostly outdoor seating with benches which allows you to share your beer thoughts with others. Also, has a few outdoor games to entertain.

Hometown brewery.
They always have a multitude of choices pouring. Food trucks average 4 times a week. Cool games to play, especially the giant Jenga game. Staff is pretty chill. Some awesome hoppy offerings from the flagship Rustice Rye IPA to the famous Knuckle Sandwich DIPA. Other great ones include, Lupulin Thrill and Far Out IPAwhich are available on a rotating basis.
