Unfortunately in sorta-sketchy Downtown San Jose—I would not want to be rolling out of here at night after 5 or 6 beers... High ceiling, lofty industrial minimal feel inside. Probably equal indoor/outdoor seating. Good tap list and several coolers full of (onsite or) to go options. Walking distance to a couple other spots so convenient geographically. No food.

My favorite bar in SJ. No one else comes close to selection and service for beer in the south bay.

Wish they had food but there are enough selections in the area to cover that.

Lots of bottles, rare's on tap!

Probably my favorite beer bar in San Jose.

Vibe is very industrial. While its clean, its not the most engaging environment. When there's a crowd in there if feels a lot warmer and lively. Overall very cool though.

Quality is good, I've never had issues with pours or subpar beer. The only issue I've ever had was when someone in my group ordered the wine and it was nauseatingly disgusting. I don't blame them for that too much though as they're a beer place.

Service is very good, they generally are able to move people quickly and get everyone what they need. It's usually a one man operation so it can be difficult when its crowded. The guys know their stuff as far as beer goes and are good at making recommendations.

Selection is excellent and always changing. 30+ taps and a giant fridge full of other stuff you can buy to drink there or to go.

the place has a great selection of craft beers on tap and bottled. never expected much from the employees besides them telling me the total, but they are polite. unfortunately, more then half the seating is outdoors, but there are zero patio heaters. the interior is clean and minimalistic. it's nice that you are allowed bring in outside food. kinda pricey and some of the beers can be found at other bars for cheaper. the selection makes it worth a visit.
