Our second stop-off on the way down to SD. I have loved all of the beers I have had from SA so I was really looking forward to checking out their home base. We got there right after they opened and were able to snag a barrel table in the side room. It quickly filled up with lots of people, and about five dogs which was a little weird but whatever. Quality was quite high all around. Lots of nice materials used in the space and all of the beers treated with the highest of care. Service was solid. Tim greeted us as soon as we walked in, I had told him the night before at an event I was stopping in so it was a nice touch. As far as bar service, I didn’t have to wait very long for my beers when I was empty. Selection was great, 8-9 beers on including a special cask. Wish I could have gotten some bottles, I guess they ran out the day before so that sucked. Prices were good all around so no problems there. Overall an awesome brewery that I would definitely make my regular choice if I lived in the area, glad we could make the side trip to check it out.

Great beers on tap. Adair was such a wonderful host. Bartenders and regulars are cool. Very dog friendly. Just a great vibe.

Good overall atmosphere. The bartenders let us open an outside bottle, as well as bring in some food. They also let dogs in for the dog lovers out there. When we went they seem to be mostly offering their standard lineup. Although, solid there was nothing exceptional.

The service was cordial. I like to bring a local bottle to new breweries I visit. This was the first brewery I've ever visited where this wasn't treated like the greatest thing that's ever happened to them, regardless of the quality of bottle given. I don't expect anything in return for this, I just like to share local beers. It's not the biggest knock on them, simply not an indication of great service.

Selection here seems to be hit or miss. If you can time your visit to a special release, apparently those beers are amazing and very limited based on the trading forums. However, if you show up only for the standard lineup, I would lower your expectations.

Overall, if you are visiting the area, they are probably worth the visit in the off chance they have a bottle release.

If you are ever near Santa Cruz, this is the spot to hit if you want a truly great selection of beer. But in addition to the great options, you also have a great ambiance coupled with a super friendly group of people behind the bar (which includes the owners). You can bring in pets, food, and everyone there seemed to have a smile.

In terms of beer, they usually have something for everyone. The only ding I suppose would be the lack of growlers for all of their beers (or at least all of their non-sours). I am not even sure if this is a real ding considering its because I really really want to take some home for later.

Great place and a must visit if you are in the South Bay Area.
