Located in an old warehouse - and that goes for both the surroundings and the interior - both seems somewhat run down - in a run down part of town. Maybe the parking prices tells it all: 25 cents for 2 hours!!! why bother with a parking meter?!? But itís a nice place for a train spotter, since the trains run right back of the bulding and they are visible from a lot of the tables. I found the service quite slow, and the food edible, but nothing special (were there for lunch). 9 beers on at my visit - many of them quite tasty.

Like Jeff said, a semi-nice place in a fairly shady area. Inside is big and thereís actually quite a bit to do. Nice little bottleshop. Small bar to crawl up to. Big restaurant to eat in. Nice. The beers werenít hit or miss, lots of em though. The food was great. I think I had a reuben or something. Chris had huge balls.

Great place in a crappy crappy area. Casual place, mix of low key college students, professors/researchers, and families. The standard staple of beers are all solid nothing amazing but all pleasent and drinkable. There seasonals are a gamble I have had some that were great and some that were not so great. I love the food. The chili (they donít always have it) is some of the best that I have had, the thai fried ribs, the half chicken, there are many good options there. Great place to go for a meal and a few good beers.

Jeffin7 took me here. We ate upstairs at the bar. THey had a nice selection of beer - about 10 on tap (ok, one was just the stout served on nitro). The chicken satay appetizer was nice and spicy. Cool building - felt like a converted warehouse or small factory.

When I first went here last October the food was excellent, but since then I would rate it a notch lower. Itís very kid-friendly for a brewpub, and the shop next door has lots of interesting doo-dads as well as a good beer selection. The Anarchy Ale is my favorite, but everything Iíve tried has been good. I disagree with valejo on the Imperial Stout; it wasnít the best but I thought it was decent.

California Fusion in a dump like hyatteville. Not bad at all. Good beer selection, maybe 10 things they make with a few of them off tap at the moment. Happy hour on thursday night turns into college night so be warned. Starting to become comercial, hopeuflly not sacrificeing the beer too much.

I like this place a lot. Some of the beer is really good, but stay away from their Imperial Stout. I disagree with lamas, though: the food is excellent in my opinion. Try the Tai pizza or the spice-brushed ribs.

My girlfriend really likes this place for some reason. The beers have been pretty good to exceptional but the food is pretty bad. My blood pressure goes sky-high after every trip here as the food is incredibly salty no matter what you order. The general store is full of junky little knick-knacks and noisy kids sprawled all over the floor. Last time I was there I noticed they had a selection of Belgian beers that beats most six-pack shops in the area.

Nice building in the middle of a rundown and horrible neighborhood, donít like visiting the place, but like it once I have a had a few of the great beers. Great beer for a modest price, pasable food, nice atmosphere. Definately worth a visit.

A decent enough brewpub. The food is acceptable the beers are good, not world class but good enough to make a visit worthwhile. The building and general store are pretty kooky which lends a certain bit of charm to the whole experience. The service was attentive (the manager visited my table 3 times; I think my note taking made him nervous). Growlers are available (screw-top only).
