Really everything you could want for enjoying some of the highest quality beer around and some really great food. Only thing is the service is a little less than optimal which honestly wasn't a terrible thing as the vibe is so good in this taproom that if you get peeved by something it's probably on you. I sat for a little bit with an empty water glass but the food came fast and my server (I wasn't sitting at the bar) was quick quick to get my beer order. I had their BBQ Chicken pizza that had Wookey Jack bbq sauce on it which was absolutely phenomenal.

Only thing keeping this from being near perfect is the service. Both times I've been here the bartenders seemed more interested in talking to themselves than helping the patrons.

If you are a fan of Firestone Walker or California breweries in general, this place is a must spot when traveling along the 101. The food is excellent pub food and the selection of Firestone Walker products is off the charts.

Visiting PR for a wine tasting event with the relatives, and took a break from the wine to visit this place.

Really impressed by the size and layout of the brewery, and liked the tasting room as well. As you come inside and meander over to the left, there's a good size wrap around bar (holding roughly 20 or 30 seats I think), with a smattering of tables and chairs as well. Was here fairly early on a Friday afternoon, but there was still a fair size crowd enjoying the cool, well air conditioned, dark ambiance of the place, along with the 6 or 7 flat screen TV's on the wall. Service was a bit slow at first (to the point I was starting to get annoyed), but when I was finally served, it was pretty outstanding. The staff was knowledgeable and engaging, and when I expressed an interest in the Fortem IPA (only available in cans unfortunately), the bartender poured me a sample of a can he happened to have open.

In terms of the beer, I think there were roughly 20 FW beers on tap, along with cans to go of different items. The tap selection consisted of around 7 of the low abv., core beers (DBA, 31, Union Jack, etc.), and then a variety of limited release beer and BA stuff. Got a sample of the adversus and Generation one, along with the feral one, the hefe and the 20 anniversary beer. I was not impressed with the feral one and remain convinced that this is just not FW's strong suit. However, the IPA's were all outstanding (including the fortem), and the XX and hefe were both quite excellent.

Didn't try the food here, but what I saw looked pretty good. This place is definitely worth a pit stop any time I'm in the area from now on.

Large bar area with plenty of tables. Did not have anything to eat. Classic rock played on the "radio". Very attentive and knowledgeable bartenders. They serve flights as well as beer for tasting and by the glass. Growler fills available also. Delicious year round beers on tap, as well as seasonal releases only available in the Taproom. Can't wait to go back!
