Arne makes some of the best beers in the Bay Area, but he is too often over shadowed by Russian River. He has won tons of awards at both the GABF and the World Beer Cup. The pub is definitely fun. There are a couple dart boards in the back, decent pub food, good patio for those sunny days.
This is probably my favorite brewpub in the San Francisco area. Located in the upscale outdoor mall of Larkspur, it’s a bit out of the way but worth the trip. The beers are absolutely first class. Pretty much everything they make is at least above average. The white knuckle, breakout stout, IPA, are all world class. The food is pretty good too. It has a nice bar and plenty of seating. The service has always been good. There is usually at least two or three special beers on tap and they run good happy hours specials as well. Not super exciting, but you can’t beat this place for the quality, especially if you’re like me and love visiting brewpubs where they make their beer on site. A must stop when in San Francisco
This place is always busy, even Saturday afternoon, the first dry Saturday in weeks!! Kitchen is quick with food. 10 of their own brews are on tap and fair amount of bottles to go. Waitress for pretty awesome considering she seemed to be the only waitress, including the patio area. A little strange, but they put the onions, lettuce and tomato under the burger, not in it. Burger was wonderfully rare and juicy, like I like them. Bacon was crisp.
Very nice place. A little pricey. Beautiful scenic location. Not much as much on tap that I would have like to see. Borderline retarded waitstaff, friendly, but stupid as all get out. Worth the stop but there is so much else out there that if you are stretched for time or on a budget I would suggest many other places on the 101.
