One of the first beer bars I have been frequently. Its great to have a local place with Russian River on tap along with local favorites.

Burgers are usual go to. the steak sandwich with Chimichurri sauce is amazing. 5 years in still changing menu and offering great beers.

Alhambra is close by to me, but it's not the most direct to get there by car and by public transportation not really possible (read: about 6 miles as the crow flies but public transportation, cab aside, will take about an hour.). That said, I do love coming here.

The food is quite tasty and varied. I'm a big fan of the tuna tartar as well as any if the tacos. The food prices run from about average to a bit pricey, however, the happy hour specials (3/4-7pm m-f) are a good deal and unique from the rest of the menu.

Beer selection is fantastic! Changes often and has a bit of everything usually. For events like Sam Fest and Pliny Day the beer menu is insane. Outside of marquee beer festivals it's rare to see as many rare and awesome beers as they have for events. You can order every beer as a 5oz taster and usually a full pour too. Lots of pre-made flights plus you can build your own. My girlfriend doesn't always want a full pour or is driving and so she finds the 5oz pours to be perfect for her.
