My review of this place is a little skewed because I have only visited it during the Double IPA fest. I didnít even notice a listing of their standard brews as I was more interested in figuring out which Double IPA I would sample next. A relatively small place, made much smaller by several hundred patrons of the fest. During normal business hours, Iím guessing the size is just fine. Has an outdoor patio which gets sunlight starting at around noon, depending upon the season. Clearly owner Vic cares about beer, and the Bistro therefore has passed the first meaningful test of a worthy establishment. Together with Buffalo Bills brewpub just up the road, Hayward is a worthwhile destination for beer lovers when in the Bay Area.

If you like hoppy micro brews, this is the place for you. They had Drakeís, Hoptown, Bear Republic, Sierra Nevada, Guinness, and a cider on tap. There were 3 harvest beers, 1 vanilla porter, and a fair hafe-weizen. The music was great, mixed, americana, the guitar player cold pick some bluegrass. Nice unpretentious neighborhood hangout.
