This manager/owner is a horrible person. Very rude to others; greedy and selfish. Not compassionate or understanding, does not work well with others.. I will never buy from devils canyon again, nor will I support this business in San Carlos.

The beer brewing/event space is very well-designed, even pretty. Loads of open space. It's usually full of young parents and children, and they have food trucks out back. Beer isn't spectacular, especially for the asking price.

This is a review of the actual brewery location rather than the beer (which is average to below average).

The brewery is open on the last Friday of every month and is a great place to enjoy the night in an otherwise quite town (Belmont/San Carlos). They have live music, a large area outside, and a plethora of Taco Trucks supplied by Off-The-Grid.

I look forward to the beer improving (their root beer is actually great) and last I heard, they are going to start opening up every Friday starting November.

A great spot! Don't miss Beer Friday events, for sure. The whole community comes out for pints, live music, and food trucks. These guys make great beer and have a nice, varied selection. My favorites are the Full Boar Scotch Ale and their Habanero Ale. There ain't much of a beer scene mid-peninsula but Devil's Canyon is a big and important part of it.

Was able to walk in and immediately strike up a conversation with fellow patrons and the bartenders about the beer being served and the methods by which they were made. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable topping off the beer selection and quality perfectly.

I was able to walk out of here with two growlers filled with excellent beer, some resources for home brewing, and the healthy glow from trying all the beers.
