Wow - a brewery right in the middle of wine country. Great place to go if you are with friends on a wine tour and you have a taste for a good beer. The place just opened 7 months ago and is a find. I had their "flight" of six 5oz samples. I don't typically order a pilsner, but it comes with the flight - and I'm glad it does. This was probably the best Pilsner that I've ever had. No food inside, but they had a food truck parked outside. They also have a "beer garden" with an outside tap, so you can enjoy the Northern California weather with a nice cool one. Also, the service was the best I've had - my wife and I felt we received special attention. I will be back.

We stopped in here on our way from Sonoma to Yountville. Always excited to find breweries on or near the Napa side. The tasting room is beautiful. Open airy, well designed with a beautiful bar, comfortable bar stools and plenty of room for tables.

We pulled up stools and found 6 beers on tap, which we could sample for $15. Seven ounce pours but still this is the most expensive sampler flight I have ever come across (maybe not on a per ounce basis but a four or five ounce sampler for $9 would be more to my liking anyway).

We would not have minded as much if the beer was good but I am sorry to say that it was a huge disappointment. Liked the Jefe-Weizen (nice yeasty character), thought the Morena Ale was decent. The regular IPAs were awfully bland with little hop character in flavor or aroma. The Pils was not good and the Doble IPA was undrinkable. Seems like a fermentation problem.

We left more than half the sampler and moved along. Bummer. They have only been open a couple of months so maybe time will make things better.
