This is by far the best place to go in town if you want to try some hard to find beers or just chat with the owner or most of the employees about anything beer related.
They have a great bottle shop in the back where you can buy and bring them to the "tasting area" to try with friends. They have a good selection of things you can't find anywhere else in town.
They have a rotating set of taps (around 5 - 7 I'd say). They buy smaller kegs that finish in a week or so depending on how good the beer is. This keeps things interesting for locals. They have had Parabola, 90 minute, pliney, sculpin and a lot of other great stuff.
The best part by far is the tastings though. They can be based off of style, region, brewery or just about anything. They're definitely creative and fair priced.
The only detractors is that they don't serve food, but they allow you to bring in food from elsewhere so this isn't a huge issue. They also can be very cramped at night, so much so that a line appears around 8 or 9pm. I usually hang out there in the afternoon and do some grading and enjoy the jazz they usually have playing.
If you're in Davis, California, I implore you to visit!

This is my spot! While they don't have a large tap list its always rotating and they have different tastings daily. The bottle selection is one of the best in this area of N. California. Staff is very helpful and most staff there know about beer. The drinking area is small and is busy on weekends but its worth it.
