Solid. The select beers they have available in cans for take away usually sell out pretty quick.

Well, well, well...I finally got to visit Moonraker Brewing and I was not disappointed! This place has an excellent vibe to it! It has a different feel in each area. The outdoor area is nice...with the lights at night...right next to the food truck (they have excellent selections depending on the day)...the indoor area next to the bar feels like a normal brew pub with energy and volume...and the Barrel Room...this...if you don't have kids and are on a date or even alone (if available), the barrel room is fantastic...a little quieter and a little more private than out front. It has a great vibe to it with the trendy tables, fantastic lighting, and barrels up against the walls, this is a great spot for a date! And, i am not sure who picks the music, but it was a fantastic mixture of up to date, "cool vibe", selections. The customer service was fantastic, especially the owner's daughter and Alyssa (sp?)! They really made me feel welcome and put up with all my questions and excitement! I highly recommend this Brewery, even if it is a bit of a drive from the Sacramento Area...it is well worth it! Not your normal brewery experience in an industrial area!! I even got to meet Dan the Man (one of the owners)!

Tried the brewery after the latest Internet Beer User episode on Citra Double Crush (http://www.internetbeerusers.com/63) Beautiful creamy citrusy Double IPA. wish they all looked this good! Taste wise, I give it a solid 4.5!

Awsome brewery. Probably the best in Auburn. Great award winning IPA selection set in a small industrial park style brewery. Fast and friendly staff. Good outdoor seating and always with a different food truck available. Highly recommend.

This is my go to brewery when I visit Sacramento.
I've been to SAC about 5 times and i have visited Moonraker at least 7 times and each time it gets bigger and more fun to hangout

My partner and I stopped here at high noon on a scorcher of a Sunday after wrapping up some camping along the Yuba River. We arrived just as they opened for the day, so there were no crowds (yet). Read on below for specifics, but I'll cut to the chase and confirm that their YOJO IPA is absolutely fantastic. My partner had a coffee porter that was superb as well, definitely made for iced coffee lovers. The only letdown was the Jungle Double Crush DIPA that I tried after falling madly in love with YOJO. Heh, I actually gave the Jungle Double Crush away to a random empty-glassed patron just so I could instead have another YOJO (I was driving, so had to limit myself to just two beers).

Vibe- It's very clean inside and the air conditioning was MUCH appreciated. Restrooms were clean, and there was plenty of seating (indoor and outdoor). Dark wood and fresh paint. The outdoor area is a bunch of picnic tables on a large concrete slab under a hot tin roof, but it's a bit more cozy/inviting than that may sound--and there was a food truck parked back there during our visit.

Quality- This is a high quality establishment. From the beer they serve, to the glassware they serve it in, to the furniture and the lighting. Not much more one could ask for. We tried 3 different beers and only one of them was anything less than perfection.

Service- Prompt, friendly, knowledgeable staff. I asked if they could switch the Tour de France on for me and they happily obliged. I bought some fancy glassware and they packed it up and brought it over to me at my table once it was ready.

Selection- Way more beers available than I could possibly try in one visit. Plenty of different styles represented, but their bread & butter does seem to currently be the hazy juicy NE IPA and NE DIPA.

Another hop-centric brewery for Auburn. Tucked into an unassuming business park they are cranking out some delicious NE IPAs, but they also have some other styles available on the board for those not yet initiated into the lupulin cult. There is some indoor seating along with a good size outside patio with rotating food truck service. Can get busy, especially on can release days, but that's becoming the norm these days. Definitely a fun stop.
