A small brewery located in an industrial area in Capitola. The owners are fantastic people, I got to know Tim a bit when he worked at Seven Bridges. The tasting room is quite small, a few tables and chairs. They also usually put some tables out in the parking lot out in front of the brewery. They usually have 4-6 beers on tap and a couple of bottles available. They do growler fills but because of limited supply they usually only have one of their beers available for growler fills. They have also had problems having beers available for tasting but seem to have more supply lately. They also just posted some pictures on their Facebook page of several large fermenters being unloaded so it looks like their capacity will be increasing shortly. No food.
The beer is fantastic. Their 831 IPA is great. They make a lot of different saisons. They have relationships with a lot of wine makers which allows them to age a lot of stuff in wine barrels. It will be fun to follow them as they grow as they have already developed quite a following.

Went with a couple friends. We were there on a Saturday evening. We got there at about 7pm, the place closes early so we only had time for a couple beers.
It was full but not overly crowded so we got a place to sit down. The atmosphere was chill, and not too loud. There was some music playing, Danzig I think.
No food, so eat before you go if you're really hungry.
There were about 8 beers on tap. 2 IPA's, 2 pales, 2 saisons, 1 porter, and 1 imperial stout. I did a couple tastes and had a glass of one of the IPA's and the Imperial stout. Everything I tried was tasty, certainly would go back another time.
