I stopped in here to have a quick pint and to check the place out while on a road trip from southern California to northern California. A very good spot for a quick refresher pint or to have some tasters. Not too many though if you are the one doing the driving.

Located at the brewery, the taproom bar is small. There is an adjacent room next to the bar area with some tables and chairs and a very small patio. The atmosphere is pretty plain. Marble like bar with a wooden facade around the tap area. Plenty of wood gives this place a rustic feel. The atmosphere does not have to be overwhelming. This is a tasting room and not a club. Overall it is comfortable and relaxing.

The service is fine. Just one bartender serving when I was there. She did an excellent job and has a great rapport with the locals. A very friendly bartender.

I did not have any food. I don't think they offer food here other than pretzels and snacks.

The selection is Firestone Walker beers. I recommend trying the unfiltered double barrel ale or the nectar IPA if you have not had them before. Beers are served in a selection of four tasters or by the pint. They also sell growlers. I noticed on the website they stated they have Friday Firkin nights. I don't remember seeing a hand pump while I was there so I don't know if they still do this or not.

This is a simple tasting room and a good place to stop if one needs a break from driving but does not want or need food to go along with their beer.

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.
