Good everything: service, food and brews. We sat outside. The perfect stop off of I-5 for some food and beer. The beer selection is limited but the prices good.

a very quaint little place with a big outdoor patio and a small indoor seating area. was told by the server that there were 7 taps, 2 of which featured their own brews, a wheat and an imperial red ale (see my review). i have to say that the food here is amazing! i had what is likely the freshest salad ever, my adobo chicken sandwich was fantastic, and my girlfriend still talks about how good her salmon blt was. our server was super friendly and the prices seems on par with the quality. highly recommended if you ever find yourself in northern california.

Fairly new place about 45 minutes north of me, in the nice little old town of Dunsmuir.

Located down in the historic center, in a old building that looks like it was an auto repair place or a gas station. Lots of outdoor seating, perfect for summer, and a few seats inside where it felt like their AC was struggling to cool the place down. Nice atmosphere for a cold beer though.

Quality was ok. I had an IPA and an ESB. Both were decent, but nothing special. The red I've had before was better than both of these.

Service was pretty good, a tad slow, but she was friendly. It was upseting to find out that about 1/2 a dozen of their food offerings were not available.

Selection was weak, 3 house beers, and I think 2 guest taps. They had 2 other taps that were empty. I'll cut them a little slack though, because the brew space is tiny. So they probably won't have many beers on tap at a time.

Food was quite tasty, I really liked my mushroom soup.

Prices were average.

All in all, a place with potential, that seems to be working out a few kinks. My review may be a bit harsh, but I liked this place quite a bit, business seemed very good, so hopefully they stick around, and some day get some more space so they can have more offerings on tap.
