This pub ROCKS! It's very laid back. Thick cushioned chairs, a beer garden, darts and four tvs in the corners. It was a very happy, friendly crowd on the Friday night we went. O'Brien's seems to get a lot of regulars. They even keep the mugs of their regulars hanging behind the bar awaiting the next visit. The bartender was quick with samples if you weren't sure what you wanted. She knew the selection well and could match up beers they had to meet your tastes. The 20 taps were impressive: Alpine, Alaska, Alesmith, Pizza Port, Boddingtons, Sierra Nevada, (I'm going by memory and memory is failing me...). Plus the Pizza Port Lou P Lin IPA was on one of those hand pumps, something I haven't seen expect in England. As stated in the last review, the Belgiums were priced a little high, $6.50 a pint I believe. The best value was naturally the locals at $3 or $3.50 I think it was. Everything we tried was fresh and tasty. The food was quite good too, and with a decent-sized menu of things to choose from. It is kind of a small place located in a strip mall in the middle of nowhere, but there's plenty of parking. It's a pub that's well worth searching out.
