Not a bad little place tucked away on a picture postcard street in the thriving metropolis of Pleasanton California. Loads of worldwide bottles line the walls, unfortunately they have only 10-15 beers (non macro swill) at any one time. They have half dozen BOP offerings, the IPA and Porter werenít bad. Very good food. Staff needs to boost their beer IQ a bit. Interesting mix of locals, tourists and visiting "RUBís" (Rich, Urban Bikers). Worth a lunch stop if youíre in town.

Wasnít even sure if these guys were open as it was pretty empty and not very inviting from the outside. They had six house beers and a handful of guest taps. I would highly advise drinking the guest beers instead. All of the house beers were...terrible. The exception being the strawberry wheat beer and thatís just because it tasted like strawberry candy from the flavoring. Service was at least really friendly and the bartender was very helpful and attentive. Would scroll past in the future and wouldnít really bother unless you just want the rakes.

Stopped in for dinner. Had a nice tri tip sandwich and a flight of beers. Unfortunately the beers came in those liquor glasses. Oh well. The beer was alright. The service was a bit slow but otherwise nice and helpful. There was a band playing some 70ís and 80ís cover songs. A bit pricey.

Update: stopped in again recently (about a year after I stopped in the first time) and it was exactly the same as it was the first time I came in. Iím pretty sure it was even the same band playing the same songs. The beer list was exactly the same too (crappy black lager, crappy IPL, and a few other unremarkable beers). The biggest difference now is that there is a new place across the street that has a better beer selection and better food.

Sat at the bar, got instant service. Very friendly staff and great beers. The food was delicious and the value was really good. A decent ambiance with many locals stopping in. Everyone knew everyone. Just had a really friendly feel. The bartender even made a special call to the brewmaster to inquire as to what kind of hops were in the train wreck IPA for me. Talk about A+++ service!!! Will come here again!

Fairly small place in old town Pleasanton. Sat at the bar. They have 5 rotating taps of their own brews, and about 10 guest taps. Sampled their 5 brews, all were decent. Guest taps included some interesting selections that would be hard to find bottled. Food was good, reasonably priced, and large portions. Service and ambience is what really sets this apart from most small brewpubs. The bartender was extremely friendly and attentive - made you feel like youíve known eachother for years. Entire place has a friendly feel about it and you can be comfortable as a visitor and not feel like an outsider. Will be visiting again when Iím in the area!

Small dark pub reminds ma a lot of a neighborhood dive bar. The service was fair but you usually get good service when you sit at the bar. The beer selection was average, but they had some interesting guest taps. Nothing special but allright if you are in the area.

In the "old town" area ... this little brewpub w/ a decent list of beers didnít strike me that well ... after checking this place off my list, Iíd prefer the Hoptown.
