Went here a few times on weekend nights and was pretty impressed. I'm in the area so I would certainly go back if I wanted a neighborhood hangout.
Energetic crowd. Some families. I went on sports nights so it was definitely a singular experience: people who were into what they were watching and excited about it. Can't speak for the regular nights.
Decent layout. The bar is too small IMO -- mostly booth seating, which I didn't bother with.
They have 8-10 beers on tap at two stations, but most of them overlap. They had a Rogue guest selection once when I was there. Quite a surprise. Pints are $4-$5 apiece. The service is speedy at the bar and the bartender was willing to let me sample a couple of brews before I decided.
They also have bottles on the shelf behind them that indicate they carry Stone, Rogue, and some other selections (didn't buy any of those so I don't know the price).
The food kind of sucks, but that's generally true of all brewpubs IMO.
Overall, a good value for the money. I would certainly go back.

visited here a few weekends ago. Located very near the IKEA in East Palo Alto off of the 101. Walking in you are hit with what this Brewpub is all about-Sports. Must have been a dozen big screen TVs with every thing from MLB to Rugby. A little over whelming. I ordered the Maibock-I had to stop the young bar keep from giving me a frosted glass (strike one), she gave me a warm one from the dishwasher (strike two). The maibock it self was sweet and didn't make me want to stick around for another. Heck I even left a half a pint behind.
Pint was $5.50-(Strike 3). No reason for a beer centered person to stop here unless you are at IKEA and even then it may not be worth it.
