3fourths (1537) Boulder, Colorado | September 16, 2004| Updated April 20, 2013
Stopped in late in the evening, and there was a number of Harleyís outside. The folks with the bikes were inside drinking with their dogs, that was a neat sight to see. The inside is small, not a restaurant, just a tasting room. Has the usual &quo;Mug Club&quo; stuff, with a bar just inside the door and a few tables in an adjacent room. The beer was worth trying, pretty solid all around. Bartender was more than helpful and the small crowd was of good nature. Nice place, didnít get a tour, but it looked like it would have been fun.
Very large area with lots of house beers to pick from including half a dozen tap room only beers like the brown ale and the pils. They also have some vintage bottles for pretty high prices ($55 for last yearís anniversary).
Service is friendly and attentive. Got a quick flight of four and despite a$6 tab also some friendly conversation. would return if passing by to see whatís new but most of the non sour offerings get distributed nation wide.
Didnít try the food but I hear itís good, might have eat here next time.
Pretty large restaurant/bar right across from the brewery. Lots of taps with a few beers you donít see much of/at all outside of the brewery. The food was pretty good. Itís definitely a step up from typical pub food, too. The service was okay, but one of the bartenders did stop to do her makeup while I was sitting there.
This brewery tasting room is really nothing to write home about, from the design of the place to the absolutely uninterested service behind the bar, from the boring tap menu (where are the specialties?) to the sports on tvs everywhere. I love session ales and Firestone Walkers are all well made, but they are rather round/sweet, so not to my liking for quenching purposes. The only "special" beer on tap was the Parabola, their wonderful Imperial Stout. This brew saved my visit, to be honest.
A great stop. Right off the 101 just south of Paso Robles. They open at 12 every day. Nice facility. Really small for the world class beers they produce. Parking out front. Tasting bar, merchandise, tables and a big TV playing ESPN. Great beers on tap and available to go. Super fresh Double Jack and 14 in both bottles and on tap. Service was nice. Spoke with Matt for a while. Brewery was bottling and they were doing some sort of construction. Great prices. Food list was short, but my pizza/flat bread (only real option) was very tasty. Mostly older (and friendly) locals bemoaning having to share bottles of 14 with their "budweiser sipping ignoramus inlaws" An awesome stop between LA and SF. Will stop by anytime I make that trip!
A cozy tasting room kept in dark colors from the tiles on the floor to the dark wooden interior. And then it is nice and cool on a hot summer day. We showed up at opening time and instead of just sampling the beers we had a very informative tour of the brewery. The selection in the tasting room were limited, but we had some hard to get stuff and a bottle to take away.
Only did the visitor center and the tour, but it was great. Beautiful brewery with a nice bar to try some samples at before and after the tour. Service was great, friendly and knowledgeable, I think all were cicerone beer server certified. Selection was awesome, the core stuff plus some stuff I didnít even know Firestone made. A very cool brewery making great barrel aged beers, as well as some superb regular stuff.
