The hopyard had a decent tap list, although I was surprised that they only had one of their beers. The service was good. The food was OK. It was clean, a bit noisy and it was ok to bring kids there.

This place is really a family restaurant that caters to familes with kids. They just happen to have a good selection of beer taps with lost of domestic craft brews, espcially those from CA and the Pacific Northwest.
Not a bad place to enjoy a few beers either at the bar, or outside in the beer garden IF thereís not too many screaming kids running around without parental supervision. Sadly thatís probably going to be the case Friday nights.
The Tuesday night Pint night brewery promotion nights on the other hand are outstanding, and easily the best night or the week to go!

Nice tap list with Pliny and other good beers from Northern CA. The wings and chips with their home made salsa was good. Service was below average.
Looking at my beer ratings from that visit I think they have dirty lines or taps. 2 of the 4 beers all had a soapy flavor in the taste.

Very good beer selection. Mostly Nor Cal bay area beers with the occasional rare one. They need to have more SD, Oregon and Wash. brews. Food is real good. Sweet potato fries!! Yes!!

The food and beer are good. They always have new good beers changing on the menu. Nice place to grab some garlic fries and burger and nice beer or just sit at bar and enjoy the beer.

The beer selection is ok, but if you like stouts or porters than your are going to be very limited and at the mercy of the waitress or bartender to recommend something somewhat similar. They do have a good variety of light pilsners and ales though. The food is absolutely wonderful! The best thing about the place is they will let me bring my puppy as long as I stay on the outside patio.
