I visited the "tasting room" of Bootlegger's Brewery along with a couple of friends. We got four rounds of half-pints and all shared with each other, so we got to try twelve different beers. I was pleasantly surprised at how many different beers they had available on tap--more beers than I knew they brewed! This is particularly impressive given their small, compact brewery set up. Highlights for me included a Belgian beer brewed with plums, a white beer brewed with lemongrass, Knuckle Sandwich, and Black Phoenix. I was disappointed that they had sold out of Knuckle Sandwich bottles, but given that I was there for the last hour and a half of their open hours on a Saturday night, I can't complain or blame. We were also too late for the food truck(s) that had apparently been there earlier. It would be nice if they sold some sort of snacks (e.g., peanuts). I got a printed pint glass (two for five dollars is a good deal). I'll happily go back first change I get!

A summer night feel with the beer selection and outdoor seating. Cornhole is always fun and there's a good pizza place next door that delivers over.

They usually have a very good selection, super nice barbacks. The beer just lacks sometimes.

Stopped in to score Knuckle Sandwich IIPA in bottles but it was already gone. Had a few beers and I do enjoy their Black Phoenix. The seating inside is limited, outside seating is more expansive, and there was only one person working the bar. There wasn't many people there but it was early Saturday. I think they need put a little bit more into the scenery, I've been to establishments that are aesthetically pleasing. But the beer, atmosphere, and service are great. It's worth a visit.

Did a flight although missed out on the vaunted Knuckle Sandwich. Beers were good but not great. Taproom was in a garage with plenty of room but it was early. No food available that I knew of, service was satisfactory. Probably would go back but only to try Knuckle Sandwich as competition is fierce in Cali.
