One of the oldest beer bars in so cal. Hadn't been there for almost two years so I decided to take the train up there and check things out. Still smelled the same, food tasted the same, but things just seemed different. Alot of the regular tap selections are gone and now a majority of the taps are dedicated to so cal breweries. There's nothing wrong with that but i prefer the older taplist that focused on belgian and mild english beers.
A bit of snootiness from the bartenders and a general lack of attention from the entire staff.
The bottle list is long with some surpringly well-priced vintages. I went with a saison dupont from 2008.
Mainly English pub food, the fish and chips used to be my favorite but I went with the curry this time and was very happy with my choice.
Parking is tough in the area but the train drops off about a 1/4 mile south of Lucky Baldwins. Their IPA fest is good but alot of the best beers are gone the first day.
