Arguably my favorite place to drink beer in Redwood City (even over GHS). This place is a Time-Warp, Quantum Leap into Anywhere, USA. Cafeteria-style food up front, dimly lit bar in the back with an INCREDIBLE rotating tap and great bottle selection. I work from here nearly 1 day a week (Free WiFi).

Biased here as this is my local - but I choose it over some other fantastic beer bars. You would not know if from the outside, but this is THE BEST tap list in the peninsula. Kevin gets some rare stuff that you don’t find elsewhere, and it rotates at a fairly good clip. The food is basically a cafeteria...but they specialize in roasted turkey, and you can mess that up. Not your typical craft beer bar....which makes it that much better.

I’m a fan of the Harry’s Hofbrau chain. This one is almost identical to the San Leandro location. Pretty similar tap list as far as quality and quantity goes and the food, of course, is identical. It’s pretty much a cafeteria style joint with a bar in the back. Plenty of seating inside and outside on a spacious patio. The staff is very friendly. The beer list is really top notch. Lot’s of interesting locals and regional brands that you don’t see at other places. I got a lambic style beer from Saint James and a Perennial Sump on my visit. Excellent as far as the beer goes. The food is pretty good too if you’re a meat and potato kind of person. They have a small and very well chosen selection of bottles to chose from as well. Overall, this place pretty much rocks. Totally old school and anti-hipster, but with all the beer perks of some of the best places in the area.

It’s been many years since I’ve been to a Harry’s Hofbau, in fact I don’t think they served beer then (1989), if they did it wasn’t good beer. Kind of disappointed in the food choices. Doesn’t look like it has changed much either. Then I walked in to the bar. A nice tap list and cooler filled with tasty beers.

Visited November 29, 2013.

It had been here since I was in middle school, in the mid 90s, so it was about time to go back. The layout is interesting in that the dining area is pretty small compared to the bar area and the food is served cafeteria style. Normally I scroll past tri tip sandwiches as I’m always let down but one look at the tri tip they were cutting up and my mind was made up. I got it on Dutch crunch bread (something I’ve never been able to find outside of the bay area) dipped in the au jus sauce. It was good. Prices start a little high but so do the serving sizes. The amount of food that you get for the money that you spend is impressive.

The beer list is pretty impressive these days. Two dozen taps and half a dozen good IPAs along with some Belgian stuff and a bunch of other random choices, most of which are west coast beers. I went with the blonde from Cellarmaker who is showing a lot of potential for becoming the next great brewery.

The atmosphere was once described as "geriatric" which is more less correct but it’s fine. Not sure how many Germans actually go here but they certainly play up the German restaurant-theme. I’ll have to stop back in more often.

Not surprisingly a lot like the Harry’s in San Jose, but perhaps a slightly better taplist. Great customer service, a pretty nice bottle list (I picked up a Peche ’n Brett), and 28 rotating taps of great beers. Definitely worth looking for if you are on the penninsula. And its like 5 minutes from K&L - Bonus!

Once you get past the nursing home crowd, there’s a really nice beer bar. A couple dozen taps with a much younger/less geriatric crowd in the bar. I stopped in during their IPA festival during SF Beer Week, and there were a ton of great beers to try. Great service, even with the big crowd. Not a place I would have thought to go for beer when I was growing up in the area, definitely worth a stop.

One of the best beer selections I’ve seen, with constantly rotating taps.
