4.6/5  rDev +3.1%

Hit this place up last week on a Wednesday afternoon.

A: Very relaxing, clean spot. When we arrived around 1:00, there weren't too many people there, and those that were were sitting at the bar. We sat there as well, and remained there for the 2-3 hour stay. I like how the available taps are printed on little signs, but they're above the bar so that if you want to see them while SITTING at the bar, you really have to get out of your seat and step back, or your neck gets sore quickly.

Quality and Selection: Amazing tap selection. A lot of local CA beers of high-quality, and some from all over. I had an Alpine Duet and Pliny on tap (both very fresh and tasty), and a RR Sanctification and Consecration in bottles. The bottle list is EXTREMELY impressive.

Service: There was one lady working the bar, very friendly and helpful. No complaints at all.

Food: Didn't have any, but it looked good.

Value: Seemed reasonable to me. Prices all over due to the range of beers, but really good (not as low as some other spots, but when you're from Canada, paying 5 bucks or so for Pliny is a damn steal).

Overall: Fantastic spot; I'd head back in a second if I could.
