Visited Saturday evening, not too packed and snagged four open seats at the bar. Decent selection including some brewpub exclusives. Tried the full sampler and everything was above average but nothing that stands out. Didnít try the food but a friendís mac and cheese looked good. Okay prices. Service was friendly and fine.

This is a fairly busy brewpub that dispenses a range of beers intended for mainstream beer drinkers more so than for beer geeks.Itís a pleasant place with good service. The food is ok, but nothing special.

Kind of a cool location outside the city center. Interior is a bit depressing and outdated. Service was quick and friendly, about 8 beers on tap. Most were mediocre at best. Food seemed to be the standard pub fare. The prices on the flights/samples were pretty reasonable as well.

Visited here a while back and got a beer sampler, but didnít rate or take notes. I canít remember much about the beers which probably means they were okÖ nothing special but not bad either. The place seemed pretty old and dark. Kind of a hang out for some local regulars. The service was good and friendly. Worth a stop if youíre in the area.

Visited Christmas 2011 with my brother while in Sacramento.

Very dark but the service was friendly and there were a decent number of beers to pick from, so naturally I tried all of them. It wasnt until I looked up on the wall and saw the smiley face that I remembered that I had had some of these beers before. Not sure if they still bottle but years ago (6 or 7 years ago) we used to get them in LA county.

Prices were reasonable and the place was pretty laid back, but then it was during the holidays so I cant imagine a ton of people were out drinking at a bar, aside from us that is.

(Visited 10/2012): Hoppy Brewing is on Folsom Blvd not too far off Rte 50 near Cal State in east Sacramento. There is a small private lot in front of the building.

The inside opens to a host stand and table seating on the left. Dark red and beige color scheme. The bar area is immediately past that in the center, with more table seating on the right. Brewing equipment is visible in the rear. Marker boards behind the bar list the beers that are available ("lights", "mediums", "darks"). TVs and merch behind the bar as well, plus a mural above it.

Hoppy has around 8 of their beers on tap, mostly year-round offerings like Liquid Sunshine, Hoppy Face Amber and Golden Nugget Cream Ale. They also had a seasonal/one-off on my visit called Accidentally Double Blonde. All of the beers were average to decent.

Service in the bar seating area was pretty good. Our server was quick and fairly knowledgeable about the beer.

Hoppyís food menu is upscale bar food, and my colleague and I had no complaints there.

Overall I would give the edge to Rubicon beer-wise but this is still a worthwhile spot to visit in Sacramento.

Open, somewhat dated place in Sac. Food is pretty good, beers are average to great with good food. Service is friendly but not prompt. I expected more hoppy beers, but that was not the case.

Never like when a brewpub has a commercial or an advertisement that basically states "oh yeah, we also have beer". Tends to reflect in the quality (or lack thereof) of their beers. Nothing bad here, but nothing that made me want to go back

I visited this brewery during a home brew club, booze cruse threw Sacramento. It was a good brewery very clean beers and all around good place. None of the beers there really jumped out at me. They were all middle of the road beers, nothing was bad, but nothing great.

Went here for the first time for brunch on a Sunday. Overall feel is nothing special, but they do have some nice flowers and plants around that help diffuse the very commercial/industrial feel of the surrounding area. Service was decent - it was our serverís first day but he did well considering and was friendly. Food was good and came fairly quickly. Beer sampler was a good value and had some nice selections. Bonus was that on Sundays every entree comes with a free 22 oz. bomber to go. The only bad thing is that they donít have more of their beer available in bottles.
