We had their Belgian Double and the Enkel. We tasted the Imperial Stout and Hefeweizen.
I really loved the Enkel - very bright fresh flavor with good carbonation. It was balanced well - tart but smooth. I picked this one from my 3 tastings and a sample of my husband's double.
It was a weekday afternoon with only 2 other patrons so I can't comment on their normal atmosphere and service. We were well cared for.
They have self-serve water available.
They have tasting sizes. Our bill was $15 not including the tip for 3 tasters and 2 pints.
The brewing equipment is all right in the room - the feel is that of being in the brewery but though it is pretty big the bar area feels contained and separate. It is bright and clean and they had really nice music on a good sound system. There was outdoor seating. And of course the highlight of the experience was making the bathroom trek - you go to another business' building but it is California where this seems to happen a lot. That and the barkeeps handlebar mustache!

This brewery was nice and quaint. Their was virtually no separation from the brewery and the tasting area which was actually kind of cool. The beer was very good (we tried about 8 brews) and the guy behind the counter was really cool about recommending beers he thought we would like and giving us a good deal.

This is sort of a strange setup, as I entered there was a bar off to the right with maybe 8stools and across from that two high top tables and behind that is the tanks, with one more table nestled right up against the tanks. There were a few empty seats at the bar and two empty tables when I arrived but they filled up within minutes. Everyone but me was a local but still very friendly including the bartender. For beer I had the Catch 23 which they call a Dark Rye IPA, I really enjoyed this pint. Next I got a sample of the Lucky Day IPA and I am glad I did, way to much Hops for me so another pint of the Catch 23.
In front of this pub is a large deck or front porch which I am sure they use in the summer and this would give them a lot more seating.
And finally they have a beer truck complete with kegs, taps and a small portable bar that goes around to local events as requested pouring Central Coast beer.
