    I went here with a large party of about 30 people. It was good to go behind the scenes see how the beer is brewed and packaged. The tour isn't the most interactive and there is an opportunity here for...  more »

    Visited the restaurant with a few friends yesterday. We asked for an outside table and were seated very quickly. The scenery was pleasing and the restaurant was not too crowded or noisy. Food was delicious! Only reason for 4 stars is my sampler beer was a bit on the warm side but when I ordered a full beer it was nice and cold. The appetizer sausage plate is amazing!

    This place is just amazing, the food and the beer (especially the beer). Do yourself a favor, just go on the tour (it's totally free), and have dinner here. Yes it's busy, but totally worth the wait. The food is fresh, local, and ever-changing. You'll appreciate the beer so much more after a tour too.

    It's a wonderful brewery that has wonderful food and drink. I only wish they had Handy Man IPA every time I stopped by or would it sell bottled. Then I would come by more frequently.

    Been coming here since I was 21, 20 years ago when I visit family in Chico. Great beer prices and great fresh specials. Keep it up and glad to hear they have dug themselves into the community and the solar power plant parking area rules!

    Great beer and a fun atmosphere. The food is excellent. Yes, there can be a wait. Do yourself a favor and hang through it. It's well worth it.
