Being one of the chain Brewhouses/Restaurants, BJ's is my personal favorite. This was another place that forgot to bring my souviner glass that I ordered.

I was in the mood for a really hopped out beer, so I ordered the "HopStorm". When I got my beer I took a drink and was completely baffled...No hops!!!....none. At first I thought it was a joke that maybe the young bar keeps were behind the bar laughing as if I wouldn't know the difference. A few minutes later my waiter came over and appologized, he had mixed up some orders. Normaly that might be a mark against a place, but the place was hopping and the poor kid was very distracted by a table full of women ...it was all good! That HopStorm was the best microbrewed beer I ever had...Awesome!

Located at the 101 and Northern, just one highway exit from the stadium where you can also hit Yardhouse and Gordon Biersch. This BJ's has quite a few guest taps, often from Stone or other regional brewers, and some Belgian options too (at least one lambic). House beers are alright, but their seasonals are often quite good.

Food is usually good, and far superior to most brewpubs and beer bars in the valley. Prices are fair.

Service is above average and you can tell they train their staff. I'd probably go here for the pizza and appetizers even if it wasn't a brewpub.

Parking is abundant and this is so darn convenient, being right on Northern at the 101.
