4.3/5  rDev +21.8%

Atmosphere- A nice place, but not fancy. A lot of wood and iron accents, long bar and a variety of seating options. Went in on a Friday night and the place was busy but there wasn’t a wait to sit. I saw a mix of dates and families in the place. The brewing vats are set behind glass behind the bar.

Quality- The food was enjoyable but not outstanding. All the beers seemed to be well made (ok, I didn’t like the Brown). The place seems middle to upper middle class.

Service- Great service! Seated right away, friendly and efficient wait staff, they took good care of us.

Selection- Only 5 beers on tap when I went in, which is a fair range really, but they normally seem to have more. A wide selection on food, heavy on BBQ and Mexican choices, but lots of other options.

Food- Enjoyable. Get something with green Chile.

Price- Very fair.

Overall a nice bar and restaurant to hang out in. Friendly waitstaff which appear to be pretty knowledgable about the beers.

Excellent salsa and a pretty good variety on the menu at reasonable prices ... the buffalo wing tender salad was good.

Many different house brewed beers on tap - I counted 10. Beers are just above average in quality with the darker beers ceratinly standing out over the lighter ones. One nice aspect is that they have many different beers on tap for people that want to expand their horizons.

They had 3 seasonals on when I was there which is not common for a brewpub: Porfi's ESB, Lucky Charm Ale (a brewing mistake which led to a porter-like ale when brewing their amber ale), and Granpa's #32 (Barleywine).

Darker beers (which I would tend to stick with here) in order of my preference: Black Jack Stout (nitro), Lucky Charm Ale, Andale IPA, and Chihuahua Brown.

Lighter beers in order of my preference: Porfi's ESB, Borderland Lager, Granpa's #32, Rosa's Raspberry Ale, Silver Star Light, Cactus Jack Amber.
