It is a cool establishment with the normal kind of chain restaurant food. Somewhat expensive for the price. The beer isnít worth mentioning. I tried the variety sampler and out of 15+ beers, the only good beer was a cask offer. Meh.

Nice place. Had about 7-8 of their own beers on tap, plus one or two guest taps. Faultline beer has been above average, based on the 2 times I have been there. Did not get any food tonight, but have in the past, and it has been pretty decent. Good place if you are in Sunnyvale area, and donít want to go far.

Decent, not great brewbub in Silicon Valley. Extremely crowded in the evenings, mainly because there arenít a lot of other places to drink real beer.

Corporate looking brewpub with about 8 beers on tap, $5 at happy hour, food is ok and service is respectable if not hurried, loud ambiance

I thought this was a nice little place. It was very large, its food was so-so. I was expecting more form the food, in fact I thought it was just ok. To see the 80% score for food on here seems crazy to me.
Anywho ... the beer was, also just ok.
Iíve got to ding their value score because they tricked me into the lunch combo which was essentially adding a salad and a drink - a soda to my order instead of a lunch combo with no discount no smaller size. I donít want a soda if Iím already drinking beer.

Stopped in for a sampler on the afternoon of 8/10/10. Decent, clean looking place with lots of TVs with sports on them. Service was average. Beers were average. Eight beers on tap with the Belgian White probably the best of the bunch. Didnít try the food. Not a bad place to kill time before meeting a friend over at Rabbitís Foot.

Faultline is definitely one of the under the radar beer spots in the South Bay as far as beer geeks are concerned. I had never even heard of it until recently. A couple medals at the state fair craft brewer comp and I had to see what it was all about. I visited this past friday during the USA/Slovenia FIFA World Cup game, and the place was predictably packed. It was just after noon, so the lunch crown might also have had something to do with it. The dining area is quite large, and the bar is on a lower level and had rather odd low ceilings that give it a cramped feel. The brewery is in back of the bar and is visible through glass. They had nine house beers on tap and one on cask (the IPA), which were mostly a spread of English and American styles, with a wit and kolsch thrown in as well. The IPA, English style pale ale, and kolsch were good, but the rest of the beers were pretty lackluster for their styles, with the oaked esb being way over-oaked, and the wit having way to much coriander. At the core though, the brewer can make some good beers. Iíll definitely check back some time soon to see what else they can offer. The food was typical pub fare and very meat heavy, so I didnít bother, though they did have a grilled veggie sandwich for those who donít eat meat. Instead of growlers, they do 5 liter mini-kegs, which is a first for a brewpub that I have seen that could be fun.
