Cool brewpub located on a quiet cul-de-sac in an industrial park. Corner space in a large industrial building with small entrances on both sides of the building. The brew house runs along the east wall with a corridor separating it from a large square kiosk that has restroom on the north end and a small bar on the south side. Essentially it a big square in the middle of the room with water stations and tables on the west and south sides. There is also an outdoor picnic/ game area with additional seating. The bar itself seats about a dozen and there were 20 assorted beers as well as a few hard seltzers and kombuchas. I had the Non-Visible Spectrum which was nice. Friendly bartenders. There is food available; I believe from a separate concession within the building, but as I did not try any I'm not quite sure of the set up. Nice laid-back atmosphere, the place seemed like a great place to hang out in the pleasant California weather.

Come here for the food (short rib sando!) and the stouts. You can even bring your dog to the outdoor patio area (bar out there too).

There is just something wonderful about this place. We appreciated how this location listed their selections, it made it simpler to choose.

This was a cool little place. Very small. Nice and clean though. I had a Russian imperial stout, it was tasty, but nothing amazing. Prices are good and it's filled with locals. I wouldn't travel an hour to get here, but I would stop by if I was in the neighborhood.

Fun place, went on a Sunday afternoon around 3 or 4, wasn't too packed though the AC must have been broken because it was so humid in that taproom. Decent selection, IPA was fresh and the food truck selection was nice. Overall a decent stop I would recommend to anyone (and right around the corner from toolbox, might as well hit both if you're down here!)

They only have their beer for selection and their best beers are their milk stouts. They also have floats
