The Brewhouse is right off the highway and very easy to find. However, I did see a drug deal while passing the gas station nearby. It has nice patio area and is located next to another bar.

Inside the place is like a well worn shoe. We sat ourselves and were greated prompty. Service was laid back but attentive.

The beer menu had everything you would expect (Milk Stout, IPA, Brown Ale) and some that you would not (Jalepeno Pilsner, XXXXChristmas beer). I thought the beers were well executed and had some variation of selection. I did not note a beer engine.

The food was average at best. However, the did have an eclectic selection.

While I would not go out of my way to visit The Brew house, I certainly reccomend it to anyone in the area!

Came here after a long hike with our dog, grabbed a seat outside and they were real quick to bring out menus and a dog menu. Whenever I started walking towards the chalkboard of daily taps by the entrance, my server walked out to see how she could help and had good recs. ribs were great, PB pie was delicious, my dog loved the frozen marrow bone and water bowl and beers were great. It was so nice I came back the next day and am writing this review at the bar.

The place to go for Sunday brunch. Good food, whether it's off the menu or off of the weekend buffet. It can get crowded at times, especially on a warm summer day. Service is hit or miss, depending on how busy they are. The staff is usually courteous and helpful but can sometimes get overwhelmed by the volume of customers.

Most of the beers I've had are good. Nothing great, but nothing to complain about either.

If you're a dog owner, bring Fido along and eat on the patio. They even have a separate dog menu.

Stayed at Brisas del Mar and this place was 2 blocks away, so for the location was good. It's easy to miss. It's not the Neighborhood bar on the corner, go past that 1/2 a block. They didn't go for anything fancy with the decor, they just focused on making some outstanding beer. It reminded me of some of the brewpubs I've been to in Colorado Springs, kinda rugged but great product. I had the Dubbel and thought it was fantastic. The nachos were nice, but not Freebird's quality. The next day I came back and had the honey brown, VERY nice. The wait staff seemed decent, not overly chatty though.The beer menu had penty of variety.

If you want a decent brew pub experience, you'll be happy with SB Brewing Company. If you want some amazing beer with eclectic atmosphere, come here.
