This is the place that took over the location of the Linkery on 30th St., a block south of University. The Bottlecraft people are behind it. Thirty taps of wide-ranging brews with a variety of southern California but not so much from San Diego, though it included Bruery, Lost Abbey. Others included Allagash, DeProef/Cigar City, DeDolle, and two nitros. Prices are average for the area, i.e., high.
The menu is interesting, though very similar to the old Linkery menu, and the several other beer and alleged local food places. Tasty dabs and bites like charred octopus, and salad with tiny romaine. Ham hock and apricot terrine with tiny toast. The big sausage looked like the thing if you're actually hungry or possibly the fried oyster tacos. On the fancy and expensive side, but again, typical of the more upscale places.
Service was fine, and samples were offered. I was not so taken with the atmosphere. The bar is larger than before, and they added a thicket of tables. Chairs are hard. Everything is hard, including the wood wall of art. It got unpleasantly noisy after a while. Sports on the TVs over the bar to distract you. The walls of roll-up garage doors let in the air, which is usually a great thing, but you also get the motorcycles and buses periodically.
