I've been here several times. The best time, like most places, is during the week when everyone else is working. This is one place that is on everyone's bus tour, so Saturdays especially can be very crowded. Its is in an industrial park, so parking during the week can be a problem because parking spots are allocated for other businesses, not so much a problem during the weekend when other businesses are closed. Nice large bar service area that can get a little crowded once the outer lying barrel tables are accounted for. Always a good selection with the regular fair and a few BA/limited release stuff on hand. They never pick-up the phone so best way to contact is via email, or follow blog-get on contact list. I have seen CHP parked down at the end of the cul-de-sac on several occasions before you turn into the brewery so be careful. They are obviously waiting to catch an easy ticket/DUI. Nice open air feeling, the occasional food truck (mostly weekends). Security on hand to check ID's, and calm down any riff-raff. Always had a good experience here despite the occasional crowd. Tons of bottles and merchandise usually on sale. 10 mins away from several other breweries, notably Stone. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Place is just full of any great beer of all styles you can possibly imagine. World class Barreling system and sours really make this brewery pop off.
