I just love this place. It feels very local and homey despite being brand new. Super well done interior and exterior places, great friendly helpful staff, well done array of beers, no macros, draws a good beer crowd. Itís a tad pricey I thought but hey beer isnít getting any cheaper and neither is food. I like what Iím seeing and trust that the place will evolve well. Looking forward to more now and the future of this place.

Crowded on a weekend night and they had a band playing as well. The main restaurant and bar area is not huge, but they have plenty of outdoor space and a nice large patio area. Service was really quite fast, even with the crowd. They had the four Hopmonk beers available as well as a list of other Bay Area offerings (Drakes, Baeltane, Moonlight, Russian River, etc.). Definitely a nice place to sit and have a beer.

A good number of taps, with a number of interesting beers. A large location with 275 capacity including all rooms and the outside patio.
Up and coming small chain. House beers made by Gordon Bierch, whom the owner sold his old chain too (Gordon Bierch).
Policy oriented staff for the most part.

This used to be a great place to get a craft beer. Now it seems that the bartenders have no idea on how to pour a beer. No thanks to the 1" of foam. Not when I am paying $6 a pint. Nor do they any knowledge of the guest beers. This place could be great. They should have gotten this one right before opening the 2nd location. Great stage, great patio. Iíll keep coming because itís best place for beer in Sebastopol. Please learn how to pour and knock a dollar off the pints.

Pretty boring bar overall, but they had Alaskan smoked porter, a few other seasonals, and decent offerings like Pliny on tap. Not cheap tho. House beers include 2 by Gordon Bierch that I didnít try.

Very nice place with an adorable beer garden. The house Kellerbier was good, but I admit I preferred to try the guest taps, with some Moonlight and Russian River choices I just couldnít pass up. Food was also quite good (fresh mussels and oysters, yum!) and service was prompt and professional, if not beer knowledgeable. I am glad to have stopped by because these people seem to care about the total experience, not just the beer menu.

An old train depot converted into this classy brewpub, with a warm decor, eye pleasing. Friendly service. Only 3 beers made onsite, with around 10 interesting guest taps (Russian River Pliny, Duchesse de Bourgogne) a Upscale pubmenu. mix of US micros and belgians in bottles. Free samples given out.

Cool little out of the way place on the northern California. I liked two of their three house beers and they had a good selection (albiet small) of other brewers like Alaskan and Moonlight. The beer garden was nice and the food was very good.

I was very excited about this place but ended up very disappointed. On-line they boasted many rare and unique beers, but when I got there, they were all out. The beer menu was outdated, had to order 5 different beers before they had one I wanted, and the waitress looked at me like I was speaking a different language when asked about beer. The place looks cool, and the food is okay. Overall a bad experience, hope if there is a next time I visit it is better.

A very cool looking building. Inside, I especially loved the lit up taps. The food I tried was trying too hard to be upscale and was barely palatable to me. However, I am sure those that want something different and pseudo gourmet will dig the food. The beer I had was decent, but served too cold. The service was good and informative. Overall, I was not impressed.

Kind of a let down. At least 4 beers on the website and on the menu were not available. Selection was about 8 beers or so and 3 Hopmonk brews. Food is just ok, inside is nice and nice beer garden outside for warmer months. Music venue is sweet. I would much rather make the trek out to Barley n Hops.
