They rotate their taps but you can find both solid beers on tap that you have had and new beers that are great! Beertenders know their beers. Their bottle shop carries some harder to come by beers. You can either BYO Food or order it in from somewhere else.

Got the chance to visit when I was back in town for winter break. In my opinion, one of the better shops to buy bottles at fair prices. COME GET YOUR PLINY HERE for one of the best prices. Bar area is relatively small, but cozy. I didn't feel squished or anything, but it definitely was smaller than other places in Sacramento. Rotating taplist and it did have a selection that catered to everyone. I definitely recommend this place if you're in town for a day or a local.

A small but welcome shop that benefits from a nice hybrid of bottle shop and bar. Too small to be top of the class at either individually, but for a bottle shop it"s got a great bar, and for a bar it's got an amazing take home selection! They have a few staple brewers that they feature regularly but still plenty of variety and always changing. Can meet you wherever you are at, knowledgeable enough for the serious and friendly enough for the new. Not lots of food options but plenty nearby. Plenty of outside space offsets small inside space. Enjoyable spot and and destined to be a regular spot for those in the neighborhood.

love the chalkboard signs and the awesome selection. whenever i want to try something new and not be let down or disappointed, i come here. then i load up on bottles and ride my bike home. the bottle shop always has something new. i probably eat more of their pretzels than anybody else. oh well. worst thing about this place is how crowded it gets. good for them... just slightly not good for me. love it though. so glad sac has a premier bottle shop.

Excellent selection of beer on tap. Typically 5+ IPA's. Outdoor seating is available and always a good option when it gets crowded inside. Kenny the owner, is knowlegable and very friendly. Outstanding selection of beers in the bottle shop. Food is available from a sushi place next door.

Awesome taproom with lots of rotating bottles in the small bottle shop gives you lots of choices! The taproom is small but there are always tons and tons of choices! In a great location thats easily accessible. If you're in the Arden area make sure to stop by here. ken is the man!

Nice feel. Great selection. Should be fun in the summer with outdoor seating and possibly music. A Find. The off site sale selection looks very extensive. Tap beers tended to be local good brewerys with top flight others. I think there are 20 beers on tap. Nice way to pick beer with blackboards behind the bar giving you good info. Food available in courtyard.

There beer selection is huge, they carry all types of beers, I've been to almost every brewery in the area and this is the icing on the cake I'm just waiting for the palate wrecker to make it way to the tap. Overall I wouldn't definitely recommend this to all and I would definitely go again
