  • Best brewery tour I have ever been on and I have toured many breweries across the country. Very well done Ken. Your people and place are top notch just like your beer. This stop was one of many on our cross country drive. If you are anywhere near northern California I recommend going out of your way for this visit. I didn't have time to go to their restaurant but I will make it back some day and make more time.
  • This place has amazing tasting food ever. This place has the best tasting pizza and burgers I ever tried. Me and my wife love this place and there amazing beer. They are hand s down the greatest beer and have amazing food. The have great prices too.
  • 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!
  • Been here 3+ times. I'm not an alcohol drinker. The stills are cool. I love the outside atmosphere and also how they use their own vegetables. The eggplant was good and is a personal favorite. I however do fell for just food it is overrated
  • Great service, bread as an appetizer with olive oil and balsamic. Portabello burger was kind of bland, pizza was good, kids got pasta one was really good and cheesy other was bland (with a red sauce). Good Heff. and beer selection.
