This is not your typical micro-brewery. It's eclectic and dog friendly. The staff and owner are friendly and engaging. A great place to meet friends or have a quick pint after work. It's not a party spot, but more of a neighborhood social experience. The beer is consistently good no matter what the style, and there is always a style to meet most palates.

Six taps of interesting beer. The regular lineup with nothing seasonal or unusual. We tried the dark mild, rye IPA, Saison, and a Black Lager.

The place is huge and has the most spotless brewery I have ever seen. It's quite lovely from outside at twilight. Vast high ceilings with a bar up front looking into the glass windows. The guy at the bar was very friendly and came to our table to make sure we knew it was last call for food, and again to see if we needed another beer before last call.

The food was some of the best I've had in a brewpub. They sold out of the local halibut and clams, but the summer squash dish and the sausages with potato salad and pickled carrots were excellent. This is the place to go anywhere between Monterey and Santa Cruz.

My wife and I stopped by here recently to check out the new kid on the block. The brewery is located off of 41st Ave not far off the 1. Located in a new building walking in the bar is to the front and the brewing equipment behind this. You can sit at the bar or a table close by. The veers were solid, not adventurous but solid and clean. We had the Czech Pils, Pale Ale, Strong Ale, and a Brown Ale. All were clean and on point for the styles. The food we and, the cheese (Burratta?) app and the halibut were crazy good.

Service was solid, not complaints. This brewery is a plus for the beer scene in Santa Cruz.
