Visited November 28, 2014.

Stopped in on the roundabout way up to Santa Rosa. This is in a strip mall in El Cerrito. The place is very open with a long bar on the left side and some tables on the right. In the back is a sign showing all the house beers and guest beers. Six house beers and six guest beers were on at the time. All of the house beers were pretty bad, sadly. The bartender was nice enough and they had a couple of decent guest beers but I feel bad for these guys. No idea how long theyíll make it.

Beyond that, parking is easy out front, plenty of seating, prices are reasonable, the server was friendly but quiet, and the place seemed kind of sterile. If you are sitting at the bar you have a pretty good view of the brewery.

I arrived ar 230pm technically 30 minutes before the bar opened but was served by one of the partners. Excellent Brewpub a short walk from El Cerrito Plaza BART. Friendly welcoming and outstanding

El Cerrito not exactly the place I would expect a brewery, but itís close enough to Berkeley, so whatever... The brewpub is on the street on a pretty main drag in town, lots of shopping centers and such around, too. BART station conveniently nearby as well as some parking on the street. The staff was friendly enough. Ordered a flight of all the house beers. In general, none were bad, but all were pretty underwhelming. They have some guest beers here, as well. Seems like a place where a number of locals hang out. Probably not a repeat visit.

This place is undersold. Food wise: We had the BLT, housemade sausage with mustard spaetzl. Both spectacular. Beer sampler comes with six 6oz tasters of their house brews, all well done, well balanced. As far as value, not cheap but definitely reasonable and the quality was there. Ambiance was just very clean, open, a few tvs playing the baseball game. Our server took some pride in describing the beers and provided consistent service. Gave it a high score because everything was delicious and we left full. Incidentally, got to sit next to the guy who grew the hops for the wet-hopped brown IIPA seasonal as well... Definitely worth a visit.

This is probably the best El Cerrito has to offer, and it seems to be well received by locals. Reasonably cozy ambiance with a lot of young families dining/drinking there. Great looking menu if quite pricy. Didnít try the food, but heard itís good. The beer was mediocre to below average with some decent guest taps to make up the difference. Close to the Bart station is a plus. Nothing special about the service.

Nice new brewpub in El Cerrito. The place is in a good location in the downtown area not far off the freeway and close to BART. The place is really small with a modern feel to it. I hear the guys that own it used to work at Pyramid. The beers I had there seemed to be of similar quality. Maybe a bit better. I liked the IPA and the red ale, but wasnít a big fan of the stout. The service was good and I enjoyed sitting at the bar chatting with the bartender. It has a nice welcoming feel to it. A nice place for some ticks, but not a real destination with so many other great spots nearby.

Bar wraps around the brewpub. They had 6 house beers and 6 guest beers on tap. The place is fairly small and full for on Wed night. Good service and the food (fish and chips) was good. The beers I had were very good. I really liked the Chocolate Coconut Imp Porter.

I love it for the beer and super salty fries. The food is a bit pricey and limited. I wish they had more space as it can be hard to get a seat and thereís no space to stand around and wait. But hey-itís a brewery and I LOVE their beer!

Best damn brewpub in El Cerrito. Opening day visit was crowded and understaffed, but the 3 starting house beers are good with 6 nice guest taps from nearby breweries to accompany them. The food is very tasty although somewhat on the smallish & expensive side. Walking distance from the house makes this one a winner, Iíll be back.
