I happened to be in Alhambra which is rare for me so I decided to stop in. Wasnt in the mood for beer at the time, but what the hell, I'm here!

Very cool joint in the heart of older Alhambra which is a very nice spot. The place is decorated nicely, trendy with class. Well situated bar and seating area.

A very healthy amount of beers on tap and not just any beers. Very current sought after beers that make you do a double take. And the bottle list amazing as well.

I couldnt decide on a beer so I did a taster flight with 4 amazing picks. Rapped with the bartender for a few minutes about beer, he was very accomodating. The only thing I didnt care for was the pricing on the flight. It was billed out as individual glasses based on what beer it was and some were quite a bit more expensive than others.

Wasnt that hungry, so I ordered a salad from a very intriguing menu filled with great choices. Very well made salad with huge taste. I want to go back and order some of the other things I spied on the menu. You can tell they have a chef on staff, not just some cook hired from Craigslist.

Overall great experience. Great brews and very satisfying food. If you're in the area, stop by. You wont be disappointed!

This place is really cool. I went for the Hoptoberfest event they had a huge selection of beers on tap and bottle. I had Blind Pig, Supplication and Lucky Bastard! One of my new favorite spots.

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.
