I happened to be in Alhambra which is rare for me so I decided to stop in. Wasnt in the mood for beer at the time, but what the hell, I'm here!

Very cool joint in the heart of older Alhambra which is a very nice spot. The place is decorated nicely, trendy with class. Well situated bar and seating area.

A very healthy amount of beers on tap and not just any beers. Very current sought after beers that make you do a double take. And the bottle list amazing as well.

I couldnt decide on a beer so I did a taster flight with 4 amazing picks. Rapped with the bartender for a few minutes about beer, he was very accomodating. The only thing I didnt care for was the pricing on the flight. It was billed out as individual glasses based on what beer it was and some were quite a bit more expensive than others.

Wasnt that hungry, so I ordered a salad from a very intriguing menu filled with great choices. Very well made salad with huge taste. I want to go back and order some of the other things I spied on the menu. You can tell they have a chef on staff, not just some cook hired from Craigslist.

Overall great experience. Great brews and very satisfying food. If you're in the area, stop by. You wont be disappointed!

Nice spot. screen in every angle so you can watch your favorite sporting event. Beer selection was good, didn't try the food but, it looked great. Service was a bit slow but, it was busy and the staff appeared to be working hard. I would stop in again during a happy hour.

Great selection of brews, especially for someone not from CA. Really enjoyed the Russian River selection and a few rare beers. Great taplist and nice variety of to go bottles. Being from the Midwest made this a real treat. Really good appetizers were a bonus.

This place is really cool. I went for the Hoptoberfest event they had a huge selection of beers on tap and bottle. I had Blind Pig, Supplication and Lucky Bastard! One of my new favorite spots.
