4.11/5  rDev -1%

I have been to OG Public House three times in the last six months. Great addition to the South Bay Beer Scene and downtown San Jose. Yes, San Jose is actually starting to have a downtown!

Atmosphere: It's small and has several TVs to watch sports. Good mix of ages between college, younger business, and old farts like myself. In the end, it's nice, but nothing special.

Quality: Both the beer selection (rotates quite often) and limited food is excellent. Some great breweries such as Stone, Firestone,and BallastPoint are available along with local breweries. Food is limited to sausages, fry's and a few other selections, but is very good. Loved the bread!

Service: Friendly, knowledgeable, and personable. You really can't ask for more.

Selection: 25 Taps with different styles which rotate often and appear both on their web site and a screen in the bar. I always find 2-3 beers that I try and often more. It would be nice to up the taps by 10-15 overtime...

Food: Limited, but quality is excellent.

Value: The cost of the beer is at least equal to those at Hofbrau House and better than Steins in Mountain View and anything in SF.

I really want to like this place but it gets harder and harder to with the service at times and the prices.
Tap list is awesome
food is great, although some of it a bit pricey
staff is generally nice, although when they get busy they can be a bit standoffish
I will continue to visit on occasion hoping to find that one thing.

There is a Beer Garden in the back patio area for anyone, and brick walls inside and wood barrels for that rustic vibe, yet very new and silicon-valley like with the clean metal tabletops and tap wall.
A large screen hangs down showing every beer on tap and every patron is cherished here. You have top notch beers to choose from if you want to spend $10 a beer, but No matter how much you want to spend you will have a great time here. They have a large selection of Bratwursts some are freshly delivered and have rare meats like rabbit, pheasant, buffalo, etc. Great fries and dips.
All the staff there are helpful and friendly cool people. You'll want to tip them.

I went for Santa Clara Valley Brewing's release of New Almaden Red.

The staff were friendly, even with a crowded bar. The courtyard in the back provided ample seating, and a nice, peaceful, outside atmosphere.

They have a very good selection of beer, and you can always check their website to see what's on tap. The food is good as well. They have a variety of sausages that go great with ale. I look forward to coming back with friends.
