Despite the name of this establishment not a house beer to be found. This is pretty much a typical big barn craft establishment complete with 73 taps, another 30 odd bottle choices and a typical menu. Pricing ok but for locals perhaps a little on the high side? Service attentive. For some reason the tap list didnít blow me away but good to see a few offerings from The Bruery, amongst others.

Place was starting to pick up trade during our hour here but we were plagued with a rather annoying bunch of grown ups watching padded rounders on the idiot box.
Didnít count the taps - didnít feel quite like 70 but for someone from England I think there were about 6 or 7 new ticks, pretty slim pickings, could really do with some local micros to boost the line up, just tried and trusted CA and national players.
I settled down with a Bruery - Red Poppy, a tad ovepriced at $11 for a 12oz pour I felt!!!
There were no beers listed as íCannery Row xxí on my visit.
A tasting flight was available but our server told me it wasnt designed for someone like me - who knew a bit about beer !
Decent enough bar I guess, good range of styles etc, we had the burger and the pulled pork sliders during happy hour (3 till 6) which were tasty but on the whole a little pricey for beer and as I said before, a fairly generic taplist youíd find anywhere.
I didnít notice any house beers listed as íCannery Row xxxí on my visit and that was the first thing I looked for.
Visited in 2011 while doing some work in Monterrey.
Really just stopped in for dinner but got a pint with it. They have some "house" beers but Iím fairly certain that theyíre just re-branded Firestone beers. Aside from that there were plenty of other taps ranging from Guinness and Stella to Lagunitas, Sierra, and Firestone.
Service was nice and attentive and the food was pretty good (got a burger). Prices were on par with other beer places (as in too high but not out of control). I will stop in next time Iím in Monterrey just to try the "house" beers just in case they really are ticks.

The sheer number of taps is enough to make this place a beer loverís paradise. Definitely worth a stop. It is not, however, a brewpub. They donít make their own beer.
When I visited sierra Nevada was having a "tap takeover" which was very good event tried some super rare beers from sierra Nevada. The place itself seems more like some collage bar with loud music and shots being poured. Still worth checking out if your in Monterey.
A new bar to me, not having been down in Monterray for 35 years. A good sized place overlooking the main tourist street (the Ocean would have been awesome). Loud Claifornia oldie music, but you can still talk loud and be heard. Servers unknowledgeable about the beers, which with WIfi and 72 taps I made do. I would have liked to find small new brewery stuff. Still, a good representation of out of state taps.
