Impressive, classy place: bar to the right as you enter. The large spacey interior is divided into dining and non-dining areas by partitions filled with wine bottles. 41 taps with six glass flights of your choice available: which is what I did on 21st May 2015. Californian brewed beers major here, with a few out of state supplementing them. I had a flatbread during íHappy Hourí and thought it good value, all the beers I tried seemed in good condition and overall I thought this an interesting place and would happily return to sample more taps and food. I did not check out the market side of the operation, so can not comment on the bottled beer, wines available. I also do not think this should be listed as a Store.

Food is good, beer list is fairly extensive, but nothing really too crazy. While the food is enjoyable, you canít really get much for less than $15-20. Thatís not necessarily a problem, but the amount/value isnít really there. Beers arenít super cheap either.

My wife and I went to Bru Grill during their soft opening with high hopes. This area needs places with good beer along with food thatís not pizza or pub grub. I want to be able to have a nice meal and a beer.
They have a nice selection of beers, many Calif craft breweries (Stone, Alesmith, Cismontane, Hangar 24, Green Flash, FW, Anchor...)
The service was good.
The problem I had was with the food. Altho it was tasty, the portions were small and pricey. I had the short ribs which was a chunk of beef rib (3" on a side) off the bone, sitting on some spinach and it was $20. It was good, but too expensive for what I got.
I might go back for a beer, but I wouldnít take people there for dinner & drinks due to the lack of value in the food you get.
