You come here for the beer, of course--one of those pilgrimage type of places. And overall the beer is of course very good, and some are exceptional. The atmosphere is average, but the place is filled mostly with people who appreciate good beer, which helps. The beer menu boards list each beer not only with ABV, but with IBU as well which is pretty cool.

Our server was really nice and walked us through the production area even though someone official wasn't there to give us a "real" tour.

I love that they offer a full sampler tray of their beers, though their range is so big, it is pretty hard to really appreciate how good most brews are if you are tasting shot glass after shot glass.

For food, the menu is pizza heavy, though I have not tried any (cow cheese isn't a pleasant experience for me I'm afraid). I have had the wings to eat, which were good (I went pretty spicy... and they were). The pizza may very well be very good (nothing wrong with doing something well and sticking to it), but I have to give an average rating based on my experience and relatively limited menu...

Bartender was overall great, the hostess not so much, overall vibe was okay, felt a lot like southern California, if you know what I mean, lol, am from San Diego and appreciate NorCal's more humble vibe but this place I wouldn't exactly call humble but their beer was exceptional!! The only beers I did NOT like were the sours but am not a sour beer fan.

Great brewery, awesome beer. I would come back and will come back many times. Only complaint is the price. Buy a 6 pack for 33 bucks? Come on

From the infamous Pliny and Blind pig, you’d think their tap room/brewery would be majestic like...while their beer selection consist of everything imaginable, the inner beings were that of a standard bar/restaurant combo. The inside is decorated well, but service was slow, and we only ordered a beer. I will always stop by if in the neighborhood to grab me some blind pig...but I guess I’ll have to wait for the updated tap room coming.
