Great place for BBQ and a tremendously curated selection (usually 50+ ish) of brews. I'm never disappointed by the selection here and pretty much know there isn't going to be a bad beer on the wall. The food is awesome also. The bar area is comfortable with numerous couches, light music, and a few TVs. Love this place. Best beer in Cobb County, that's for sure.

Yes, the area borders skid row, but that's the Tenderloin. Easily accessible by BART or MUNI. Nice industrial decor with brick walls. Kinda dark but it sets the mood. The service was great. Bartenders were on top things. Beer selection was good. First time trying beer from Mikkeller and did enjoy the Mr. Cloudy IIPA. The food was ok. Nothing to write home about. Got crowed with tech workers during the early afternoon, uggg. Other than that, I'd go back for the beer.

This is a nice quiet little place on Washington St. in South Norwalk. Formerly Hell Or High Water, it is now under entirely different ownership. While it isn't the most lively place, the staff is very friendly and attentive. The food is excellent. I have been in Connecticut for many years and, having grown up in Upstate NY, they make the best chicken wings I have had since moving here. The beers are nice. Most of them are IPAs but they do have a nice porter, kolsch and dubbel. Growlers are available and at a reasonable price.

Delicious food prepared with select ingredients. Good place to find imported and local beer. The place is located in the heart of downtown, surrounded by ancient architecture and majestic cathedrals.
Perfect to hang out with family or friends, eat excellent food and drink delicious beers.

I actually stopped in the day before they were "officially" open. Was told that they had "unofficially" been open 5 days. REALLY nice place (located in the same building as a spa at a Ski Resort). They only had about 5-6 beers on tap but all different styles, 1 was right from the cask. No flights yet so I only got a few pours. One of the Stout and the other the stout from the cask. My wife got the blonde (brewed with organic strawberries). Both were pretty good. They have a game room with skee ball and stuff. Popcorn machine. Other bites to order. Nice spot, will be interested to see how it develops!

Small store located in Hochelaga. Parking is not too bad in the street s around this area. Staffs are very knowledgeable and always willing to help with recommendations. They don’t’ carry a ton of different beers but everything is quality and they have some harder to find beers available. Prices are aligned to market. Good selection of regional cider and local wine as well.

The best beer in N.Y.C hands down. Rivals any beer I've had anywhere. My favorite spot when all that matters is the juice. Brooklyn gets the hype, Queens has the goods. IPA at its finest!

The food is great, however, the only beers they have on tap are their own in house brews. This isn't necessarily bad since they have a good selection of styles and they are all pretty good. Their happy hour deals are pretty decent also.

Outstanding patio view on the waterfront. Inner restaurant is nice too, but this is really best on a warm summer day looking out at the water. Service is solid, especially for how packed it is.
The selection is pretty wide and varied, but overall very solid. Not the craziest brews but really tasty stuff. The food is great too. Definitely worth a visit.

Stopped by Hop Cat to check out the 10th anniversary party - had several pours prior to checking out the Dangerous Man barrel-aged Imperial Chocolate Milk Stout and Liftbridge barrel-aged Silhouette release parties.
My feelings about Hop Cat are largely mixed, due mostly to the cost of the place. I did get to taste several limited beers for the anniversary party, but the cost was not insignificant. Between friends, we had six or so beers, and we all had bills in excess of $30 per person. Just lunch and two beers each (one beer, for one person - and still $30). This did not impress me much, particularly as the Java Ten Fidy pour was probably only 4oz or so, and $12.
Was the locale nice enough? Sure. It's downtown Minneapolis - the positives are, it's on a ton of bus lines, and right next to the train. It's perfect fora crawl, particularly given the great local list of taps. My recommendation re: food? Eat somewhere cheaper. I had a pulled pork sandwich - which was good - and the tab was $13 for the sandwich alone, as I recall.
Nice spot, good location, convenient to exploring they city - but awfully expensive.

This place is basically dead. It was a brewery once upon a time but now it's a bunch of kicked tap handles, disgruntled employees, and mediocre food. Wish it was better, but my experience here was pretty awful.

Eagle Rock Brewery is located in the Glendale area.
It's a small space with limited seating. There's a bar area, they keep some bottled beers for sale in a cooler. Parking for the most part is street parking. I ended up buying a bottle of Equinox and took that home. The bartender was nice and friendly.
Eagle Rock is one of the originals in the LA metro area. I think they have a new taproom near Pasadena which I'm looking forward to visiting.
Despite its size, it's a cool place to hang out. I'll be back.

Transplants Brewing is located in an industrial park area of Palmdale. There was ample parking. The evening I visited them, there was a food truck serving guests.
A cool feature of Transplants is their art work from the signage, beer graphics, and interior design. The space is fairly large with their production area in the back. There were lots of tables, some stand up video games (those cool vintage ones where we older folks used pay a quarter to play), and board games. I don't remember any guest beers. The number of house beers on tap was large.
I had their 1st Anniversary Saison which was pretty good. Again, with Lucky Luke half a block away, this area is doing well with craft breweries.

Lucky Luke is located in a small industrial area near the malls and other shops in town. While it's located inside a business park, I really liked the logo above the doors and the interior decor was done nice.
There was a small bar area where you order and ample number of tables on the floor. They had a few monitors with sports on. Towards the middle there is a glass window into their production area which I enjoy seeing in taprooms. Yesterday night, they had live music which was a nice touch. They don't serve food, so outside food is welcome here.
I had a milk stout which I enjoyed. I'm glad to see that craft breweries are opening up in the Antelope Valley. From the patrons here and Transplants down the street, they seem to be popular with the locals and here to stay.
I enjoyed my visit.

Vibe is pretty normal for a taproom, loud music and sports on TV. The decor is a mixture of modern, warehouse and barrels/wood. Giant barrel in the middle of the room with tables in it. Everything served in proper glassware and no issues with cleanliness. Service is attentive and helpful. Overall selection is solid, some IPAs, some stouts and several wilds. Not a lot outside those styles.

Fantastic brews and killer atmosphere that is welcoming to all walks of life. Family friendly but also a perfect spot to break free from the fam and enjoy a few solo or with a large group. It seems there's always a food truck around too which is a huge plus. As for the beers: It's not often that a brewery nails the first batches in a brand new system and knocks it out of the park but Commonhouse did just that with no "dial it in" time. Can't wait to see what's in store for the future!

Trendy brewpub with brick oven pizza. Z-shaped bar seats about 15. Table in front and back... spacious. A dozen beers on tap, the 3 I had were excellent. Brewer and bar staff were very personable. Pizza was delicious, they condition their water to match NY... it works. Very cool place

A standard bar/publick house type of fare. Terrific selection of beers and the menu is quite good. It was a little noisier that I care for - TVs directly overhead with games blaring. I prefer a quieter corner where we can eat and converse; just my opinion.

Great place, Retro style. Good atmosphere. They have tables out in front when the weather is nice. They give free popcorn while you drink. There is no kitchen but, outside food is welcome. Not sure if they have menus of local restaurants. Good selection of their beers - 13 beers on tap. The tap room is open 5 days a week They have Trivia Night, Bottle shares sometimes and you can have a party in the back room if you plan ahead. Great Hangout!
