I'm going to have to depart from the brilliant reviews given to this place (the reason I visited). My lunch experience there was awful.

I ordered a sampler of all the regular beers. I was advised that that they were out of their Rye IPA, so one space was empty. The waitress did not have the foresight to add a replacement beer (maybe one of the seasonals) to the sampler tray. So I asked her if she could add the Roggenbier to replace the missing one. She said "no problem" and did so. My wife ordered Calamari & I ordered a pulled pork sandwich. Unfortunately it was mainly octopus on the Calamari plate (not mentioned in the menu), and my wife doesnt like octopus. The food was overpriced as well, maybe to suit the seemingly wealthy demographic in the Healdsburg area. And it was of a lower standard to the other 10 or so brewpubs I visited in Norcal/Oregon.

When I received the bill I was shocked to find my sampler tray + ONE ADDITIONAL SAMPLE charged. So I was charged extra for the replacement beer sample despite being given one short to begin with. In addition there was a tip calculator printed on the bill. 18% = , 25% =. etc. The only time I have seen this in all my travels to the USA. Well they got a 50 cent tip from me, and that was generous in my opinion. As I was reading my bill I heard another waitress rudely address a nearby table, "Hurry up boys I need the table".

Beer was ok, but I have experienced much better in the region. I wont be visiting this place again.

Very friendly staff, outgoing bartender who won't let you keep your hand empty for long. Well done food, great beer from standards to specials.

Friendly, family run brewery in the Sonoma Wine country. Always discovering new, fabulous brews. Well worth the time to stop, eat, and enjoy some wonderful brews.
