This was stop #9 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. We stopped here to try their beers, although a food truck was there sod we also had a snack to go along with the beer. This place is in a multi-occupancy building in an industrial park that is out and away from much of everything else except the industrial neighbors, and the brewery was the only activity that evening among the few buildings in the area. A taproom has been partitioned off from the side of the building where the beer is brewed, and it was a nice evening so a large overhead door was open. A band was getting set up to play, and the table that we had chosen (the only one available because the place was busy) was right in front of a large speaker, so we drank and ate quickly, and left before the music started.

For a relatively new brewery they do a good job of brewing their beers to style. We had a sampler flight of 6 of the 12 beers that were on tap, and we liked them all. A couple of them were well above average, but most were just average of just a cut above, so our point rating system allowed for a C+ grading that was nearly up to a B minus. I’m guessing that the beers will continue to improve over time.

New-ish tasting room/brewery in Arcata. Located right across the street from the Arcata Marsh, which is nice. Not much in the way of windows inside, but the back does have a roll up door that opens up onto another parking lot, reasonably nice view above that, though.

Nice redwood tables inside, including a long one in the middle of the space and smaller tables dotted around the side and front. They have lots of games on hand to play, including a cornhole set to play in the back.

11 beers on tap when I visited, including a delicious Belgian Porter and some nice hoppy offerings. There was also a vintage barleywine, dubbel, tripel on tap. I had the sampler of all their beers which was very reasonably priced.

Quality-wise, this was probably the best brewery in the area that I visited while up in Humboldt County. I like what they are doing and hope to see their beers in my neck of the woods someday soon.

Definitely worth a visit if you are in the Arcata/Eureka area.

I usually review food but this brewery on the north coast is worth a mention even though they don't serve food. Very nice atmosphere, new, clean and comfortable casual. Tables are redwood tops over wine barrels with stools. Art work on walls is for sale so probably by a local artist. The quality of our visit was great, we went back a 2nd time cause the beer was so good. Service was friendly and reasonably fast for the crowd. The beer selection was above outstanding, they had a Citra pale ale that was beyond good. I would say their selection was better than what it says on the web site. They don't serve food but there are food wagons that do visit and you can probably bring in food with you. They do have fish crackers and peanuts on the tables. The food wagon that was there on our 2nd visit was the Wandering Weenie Wagon and we all had hot dogs. It has a variety of choices, two that were really good were the Rotweiler and Lebowski. The one that wasn't that great was the Wild Game. Don't get it, yuck! Value is a solid $$.

Great beer, cool set up. Some what hard to find unless you know what you are looking for. Front area is comfortable with the rear being slightly industrial with the fermenters etc. Small bar with 5+ tap lines, growlers and merc to go at the bar. Hip, some what friendly crowd, no real beer geeks to chat with.
