This was amazing. The general manger seated us and provided samples of their awarding beers and ales. I liked the Backfin the best. It is named after a submarine. The other ales were good. I liked the pale ales the best. WE did not have the Bar-b-Que due to time constraints. The shrimp and fries were fine. They have have just won a competition for Best Brew House in California, They are in the same shopping center as The Yard House.

Big place, loud with lots going on. A half dozen of their own beers on tap and maybe 10-15 guest taps. Service was ok. BBQ was really good. House beers were just meh.

Visited April 23, 2011.

This was on the way out to the Big 4 show in Indio/Coachella where Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, and Slayer all played. We stopped at the only brewery in town (at the time) for lunch before the show. Nice area and nice restaurant but the beer was kind of lame. The best beer was the scotch ale which was approaching good but still not amazing. It took me a while to figure it out but I knew I recognized the Blackfin Lager name from somewhere. Well on the wall near the bathrooms there was an article about this place and how their new brewer (at the time) came from PH Woods in Moreno Valley. Thatís where it hit me that I had tried pretty much the same beer at PH Woods a few months earlier. It might be the same recipe but this one came out buttery. Actually a lot of the beers had some butter flavor.

The BBQ was solid which was almost good enough to make me want to stop back in if passing through but there are a number of other places out this way that I want to check out first.

We have been here 4 times in the last 10 years or so. The food has always been good. Service has been hit or miss over the years, but our server last night was awesome. The beer is still pretty average, but far from bad. They have expanded their guest taps and bottle list which is very nice now. Worth a stop.

We were here in 2009. This brew pub is close to the local Yard House and next to the motel where we stay when visiting the Palm Springs area. Beers are not their main focus, itís more a restaurant which also brews beers. You do not need to come for the beer.

Mediocre BBQ restaurant with some pretty terrible house beers. The service is pretty awful at this place. I liked one of the house beers they had (Scotch ale). The rest were super buttery. The food wasnít bad, but Iíve certainly had better. Just drink a gin and tonic by the pool.

Big BBQ place that kind of feels like a chain restaurant even though itís not. Big dark interior with a western feel, they make the employees where cowboy hats. We had great service but you could tell the server didnít know anything about the beer. Selection is ok, about 6+ taps and mostly different styles, some good beer and some pretty bad stuff too. Food was good BBQ style but the portions are HUGE and they charge you to split a plate. Value was ok, like I said my wife and I could easily share a dinner but they charge you $6 to split the meal. Overall a good place to get some heart burn, not the best place to get some good beer.

Babeís just added a new section to their beer list and it ROCKS!!! They call it, "Imperials,Doubles, Doppels, Dubbels & Triples". How cool is that?! I had Babeís current seasonal which is called "Accelerator 8.0 Doppelbock" reminded me of Paulaner Salvador. They also have Firestone Dbl Jack Imperial IPA. Thatís good! Lastly I had a Dogfish Head 90 IPA.This place has really payed more attention to their hop heads. Cheers

Great food and nice place to take the kids because it is usually pretty loud. Worth ducking into if you are at the movies or just nearby.

Barbeque is great, Love the "drunken Monk" when available, Oktoberfest was great too. They change their house brews seasonally so theyíre different depending on when you visit, you can always find a great brew and the BBQ is constant, try the special coleslaw!!!
