This was probably my favorite stop in Livermore, possibly tied with or a close second to Tap 25. Itís right on the strip downtown and they have a good tap list. While I was there I saw Pliny on tap in addition to some Drakes hoppy beers and some other good stuff. Inside is split in two. On the right side was a breakfast buffet and on the right was the larger dining hall and the bar. We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed our food and the view of quaint little suburban life. My burger with pesto and brie on it was pretty good and it was cooked medium when ordered medium rare. My brother got the spicy chicken strips with some house sauce made with beer. Those were better than my burger I think. Prices on the food was a little high, around $10-$12 for a burger meal. This will definitely be on the list of usual spots to hit when in the area, how ever infrequent that may be.

They have relocated to a much larger space next door to the old place. Itís much nicer with a larger bar and more seating. Hopefully this will help, as lately thereís been a wait to get a table on the weekends. Iím biased, since this is my local bar, but I really love coming here. The pub food is outstanding. Great burgers and garlic fries. The wife likes it cause you can substitute a garden burger for any of the beef burgers they offer, and itís very kid friendly. The clientele and servers are very laid back, attentive, and friendly. The beer list is excellent as well. They always have the Elder on tap. My only complaint is that they only have 3 or 4 taps that rotate frequently. The others are always the same beers.

Best place for beer and food in Livermore. The new location is a big improvement over their original digs. Very friendly staff and quick service.

Came by here on a Saturday afternoon in between wine tastings and a visit to Perryís Liquors. Place was small and packed but we didnít have to wait long for a table and service was prompt. The food is standard pub grub and relatively cheap. Tap list is above average. They had Blind Pig, Pliny the Elder and Old Rasputin so they get high marks in my book. Theyíre expanding into a larger location so Iíll definitely be back.

Small pub with patio seating froint and back. Service was fairly fast considering the Friday night crowd. Beer selection was average for a taphouse around 15 beers. The taco salad was large and tasty. Not a bad value for California.

I used to travel to Livermore several times a month for work, and always stopped in here. Some of the nicest barstaff Iíve ever encountered! Great selection, great food, very reasonable prices. I miss this place.

Cool spot down town livermore. Decent selection of beers. Realy good food. Update 4-29-10: New location next door is 4 times as big and nicely decorated. Pretty much same amout of taps.

Cool downtown location with a handful of good beer on tap from RR, Green Flash, North Coast and more. Very good food and service. A bit small, and more o.k. beers than good beers. Rerate: Now that 1st St Alehouse has moved next door, they have 5 times more space, big screens all over, and a great new look. I was excited to see what else was new yesterday (bigger and better beer list maybe?!) but Iím sad to report the beer list is identical. Huge new beautiful bar, same tired and mediocre tap list. They did have Pliny on tap (a regular on any Bay Area tap room) but the keg was dry. Even had a bartender with a Corona T shirt on. Incredible potential, but the owners need to step up in the tap department.
