Excellent portion sizes and a menu to fit any budget. The craft beer selection is the best in town, bottle and draft.

During my last visit, I introduced to Strubbes Flemish Red Ale, and find my wanting more and more of it. Bottle and soon to be on tap! A beer I highly recommend ordering.

Burgers: My personal favorite is the El Iron Tummy ( bacon and jalapeƱo deliciousness).

The place occupies the same space where Joey's BBQ used to be, about a block from the Glasshouse and The Fox music venues. Different food now (burgers and the like as opposed to BBQ fare). Tap list is pretty decent. 16 taps on a constant rotation. Alesmith is almost always well represented here. I think, as of this writing, they have Alesmith IPA, wee heavy, speedway, grand cru and nautical nut on tap. I'm especially impressed they are carrying seizon bretta on tap, havent seen that anywhere else. Cant recall what elese they had on tap, but I wasn't bored with the offerings. Bottle list is good as well (about 16) but a bit on the pricy side. Saw that they have the peche bretta in bottles today but im a little fearful on what that will set me back. As far as food is concerned, I've only tried the grilled cheese/tomato soup but I hear the burgers are good. All in all a very welcome addition to Pomona and, for that matter, the surrounding area. I think they have well rounded tap list that is worth a visit.

This place has a ridiculously good selection of beer, for whatever preference you may have.

The staff is very friendly, and will point you in the right direction should you be unfamiliar with any of their beers.

This place also has a good appetizer election, and their burgers are very tasty- I had their El Iron Tummy burger (spicy), and it was delicious.

I would definitely recommend this place to people, and I will stop in whenever I'm in the area.
