Stopped in the night before this year's PtY release, and again on the morning of.

The bar in this place seems to go on forever - it is a massive extended plank of bright well worn polished wood flanked by dozens of stools. A low partition separates the "dining" area (tables and chairs and a small stage for music) from the bar, and there is additional seating out front on the patio and around the corner from the bar.

I was impressed at how well the pub has retained a local feel with patrons of all ages and backgrounds (cab drivers, mechanics, bankers, day-traders, etc) stopping in to share a pint or three.

No guest taps, and that's a good thing as it leaves more room for RR's lesser known offerings. Prices on draft beers are very inexpensive especially during happy hour (e.g. $3 for PtE vs. upwards of $8 for the same in some bars in Los Angeles). On the other hand, they charge more for their bottles than most stores (and don't seem to often have rarities) - so unless you are filling a growler - take a trip to Bottle Barn if you want to stock up.

As you would expect, everything is extremely fresh and you can tell they clean their tap-lines frequently.

Service is fast and unpretentious, but a bit gruff/rushed at times (though still friendly). While perhaps slightly disorganized, they did a good job of keeping their composure during the insanity surrounding the PtY release.

Between Flavor, RR, and Sawyer's News (for Centro's espresso) - this little corner of the world makes for a full evening for beer, coffee, and food geeks alike.

I visited on a recent weekday and walked right in at opening time. Checking in for a few brews and a bite to eat. Sat at the lengthy bar near the register for quicker all-round service/attention. Nice selection of house brews and select others. Great service at the bar with facility full by 12p. Ample parking outside (cheap meters or close parking structure) and bathroom small but meets the need. Great food selection and great food in general. I love this place for the mellow yet vibrant ambiance. Easy to strike up a conversation with those local, and not so local. The combination of food/beers/service/take home bottle selection/ parking/bathrooms make this a go to on my list when in the area. Hope this helps. Cheers.

What can I say about this place that hasn't already been said. World class beers, great food and great customer service. I recommend a Blind Pig IPA with a Paisano pizza or Pliny Bites. This place is superb in every which way and form.
