I finally stopped here after driving by a couple times a month for the last 5 years. Yeah, I don't know what took me so long either. Great place. Much bigger inside than I had expected. I was sort of in a hurry (I HAD to get to a home brewing meeting later that afternoon), so I didn't get a chance to try to the food, but I have heard good things. I had a pint of Pale 31 and then a pint of Wookey Jack. Both great. I loved the Wookey Jack. I had never had it before. I ended up getting a growler of it to take to the home brewing meeting, where it was a hit. Service was great. I was there on a Sunday afternoon around 12:30. I thought it would be more crowded, but I guess it is hit and miss. Prices were a little high, but I'm sure they get the tourist traffic stopping off the 101, so those people don't mind paying a little more. I am looking forward to going back and checking out their new(er) tasting room, Barrelhouse, where they have their stronger beers and their sour beers. Should be fun. I recommend this place to anyone driving by.

The food is above average and though a bit pricey. I haven't had anything bad off of the menu yet. Firestone wine is always a good choice, though they have a good selection of other brands. The beer is always great, of course.

The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you get your money's worth.

**Barrelworks is an across the board 5.00. My only complaint about it is that I wish they were open more often than a few hours on the weekend.
