Spacious hilltop location with good views thru plenty of large glass windows. Brewery operations also visible thru glass. Free WiFi. Friendly, knowledgable service. Excellent Wahoo tacos. Good to excellent beers (of 7 sampled so far), with one exception (oddly, the Grand Cru). Well worth the short trip off Hwy 101

Fun place to visit. Was there on a Sunday morning and they had all the NFL games on throughout the brewpub. Relaxed atmosphere and a pretty cool bar, quite big.

Excellent view of the Pacific Ocean from numerous spots inside. Very spacious inside as well. Service was pretty good.

There were about 12 beers on tap, including a couple seasonals and a barrel aged beer or two. Among the better breweries in Humboldt County. I enjoyed their hoppy beers and their coffee porter was also nice. They had a couple tasty fruit ales as well, a raspberry lambic style ale and a Cabernet Dubbel, which was great, very nice muted fruit presence.

Well worth a stop, this place is just a couple miles north of Arcata right off 101.

The service, food and beer are very good here. I recommend the fish tacos. The staff are friendly, as well. The building and decor are a bit second hand, and the restaurant has great views of the parking lot and road.

I'll return when in the area. The sample flight is 10 beers with 4 ounce pours. 4 oz.!!! It's awesome! I recommend Sasquatch, a double IPA and the raspberry lambic.

Nice vibe, I've always liked visiting this place when on the coast. Mellow, and while busy, not super crowded, plenty of tv's showing sports, and big enough.

Quality is good. Some beers are hit and miss, but most are pretty solid.

Service has always been good. Not great, but I have never been disappointed.

Selection was 10 different beers on the most recent visit. My only gripe? They tend to always have the same beers, and not many interesting seasonals.

Food is nice. Good quality pub grub that won't leave you hungry.

Value is good, very reasonable for both food and beer.

All in all? Definitely a place worth checking out. Not a great spot, but it's a place with both above average beers, and filling plates of food.

Came upon this place by accident basically when taking a beer tour through california. After we hit up lost coast with sort of mixed feelings, this was a treat!

The location doesnt feel like a typical brewpup, felt more like parking at a produce nursery, but once in the doors it felt a lot better.

Decor was kind of lacking besides some old beer posters and memoribiila on the wall. A bar in the middle handled all the drinks, and a view of the actual brew operation can be seen through a window.

The service was good, food was damn good. We shared a small hot wings pizza which was tasty. But greatest of all, the beer sample.

It had anything from the traditional Ipa, and porter, to a very good chili beer, and a lambic that blew me away. IT was only 10 dollars, and was freaking huge! Shared between the two of us it was perfect but if your greedy and want it to yourself, even better

good place, will probably come back again if passing through the area, I would honestly skip lost coast with there lack of informed servers, and hit this true, down to home type of operation up.
