3.28/5  rDev -21.5%

Stopped here for an hour or so on our way to San Luis Obispo for a short getaway.

We came around 2pm on Sunday. The place was fairly empty, with no one at the bar, so we sat there and ordered food and beer.

The pretzel was soft and chewy; quite good, and I enjoyed the mustard. The three-cheese pizza was tasty. Both felt like something that was prepackaged and heated up, though neither was bad.

The taplist had the standard lineup as well as a brewery-only beer (Ibarra Buzz Coffee Porter), a couple of Nectar offerings. No anniversary beers on tap or sold to-go this late in the year; not that I really expected it. A 20oz pour was $5, 10oz was $2.50, and tasters were $1.50.

The service was humorously inefficient. At all times there were two to four people manning the bar, but they could not stay on top of 5-6 people in line. Even though we were seated at the bar with only one other person, it took 20 minutes to get a second round of beer. Granted, I didn't try too hard, aside from trying to catch their eye, but that was pretty hard. It seems like they haven't figured out a system to organize the bar yet.

Merchandise is sold all around the bar: caps, shirts, glasses, chilled beer to go. I didn't get anything.

Beer menu is pretty good with some rarer beers available. The bar food menu is more limited than the restaurant and the negative is that the restaurant has short hours. I would certainly advise them to keep the restaurant open more throughout the day and definitely all day on the weekend. Tours and a nice little shop with the full beer selection are also available.
