Odd place. I guess they started out as a cupcake place and decided to turn into a craft beer bar. When I lived in Redlands 8 years ago it was a bagel shop. Dark kinda grubby pub feel but smells like vanilla and powered sugar. ~20 beers on tap-about 25% Inland Empire locals and mostly San Diego stuff for the rest. About 20 bottles too, including a large number of B. Nektar meads. Pulled pork sandwich was good. Objectively judging, this place is definitely solid, especially for the area. Just incongruity with the name and than weird powdered sugar smell.

Visited February 22, 2014.

Stopped in after another unsuccessful attempt to visit The Dregs in downtown. This place is on the other side of Redlands and call themselves a "desert gastro pub" or something like that. They specialize in cupcakes that somehow involve beer. Despite that I saw several people ordering hot plates (they serve meat and slightly more "regular" food in addition to deserts).

I was legitimately impressed by the tap list. This is an example of quality over quantity. I saw some locals like Hangar, Ritual, Packinghouse, Bootleggers, and Noble. I also saw some San Diego favorites like Stone, Pizza Port (not Port), and Societe (first time Iíve seen one of their kegs up this way). Then there were some more national brands like Allagash. Pretty good list Iíd say.

We really stopped in for the food (to take home) but did try a few ounces of the new Stone grapefruit IPA. They had 6 different cupcakes to pick from and theyíre not cheap nor do they offer bulk discount. $3 per, not matter how many. We got one of each of the six. They come out still warm and with a little spoon. We tried cutting one in half but that didnít work while it was warm (I was sick and didnít want to share any germs) so after 10 minutes in the fridge they were firm enough to cut. Pretty good but some of the flavors were a little odd. They had a couple made with vodka and one made with a brown ale. Iím certainly no expert on cupcakes but $3 for something that small is a bit much for me.

Iíll stop back in to check out the tap list again if not the food.
