Good signage to get you through the tricky asphalt paths. Large L-shaped bar; spacious venue. Bartender was helpful and informative. Good experience.

Two buildings in an industrial area south of Napa (the town), the brewery is big and open for tours only and the brewpub is also a good size and right across the lawn. Theyíre new-seeming, but sterile. The bar area itself certainly has a lot of flare, but the room is basic. Flights come served in really slim tasters, which I donít like. They go down too fast and you canít pull many notes from them, as if they werenít all relatively same-seeming already. There was only one bartender, and she was good. Bottles and six-packs are available to go. Beer is forgettable but not bad. Beer options in Napa are limited so itís worth a visit for something new to do and see and taste but itís nothing special.

Cheap flight, decent enough beer without any real standouts though. Quirky location which takes a while to get to. Sterile and boring interior. Quick and nice enough bar staff. Worth stopping by for cheap ticks that arenít absolutely revolting.

In a weird commercial strip, this very airy and bright bar has a very local feel. Lots of beers to try for a reasonable price and most were average. Service was bar service and pretty basic. I wouldnít make a specific stop unless you want the ticks.

Pretty massive location, which I was not expecting. A little weird to get to. Even though you can see it right off the highway, you have to sort of loop around and go through the business park area all the way to the end. The tasting room is the smaller, one story building. All around, a nice place to drink a beer, though.

Good sized bar and a very spacious tasting area. Some table/bar games and even a little kids play area--please donít bring your kids. Service was a little gruff, but I guess only having one person to do everything can make you a bit grumpy.

Beers are pretty much mediocre, but there are a lot of them. A flight of 10 is pretty cheap, too--$10. A couple of the beers were enjoyable, though. Just overall not that great.

Best of the two breweries in town and worth a visit at least.

Friendly service and decent beers but the taproom/bar layout with the big open floor space without any tables ruins the ambiance for me.

Ten different beers on tap, and if you sit at the bar, everyting looks quite nice. But the room seems to be twice as big as necessary, half of it is just a big empty floor, and that sort of ruins the ambience. Friendly service and some nice beers too, some of them rather dull though, but none bad. Got bottles to go as well.

We didnít have a car so it was a bit tricky to get there but we managed in the end. The place itself is very spacious and would need some kind of sound absorption. There were only a few guys at the bar and a couple at a table but it got were noisy. Had a sampler flight and a couple of pints but I we paid almost nothing so it was great value.

Stopped in here a few months ago while at a work conference in Napa. Nice place in a pretty fancy industrial park. Very spacious. The bar area was nice as well. There were only two other people there when I visited so we all chatted for a while. Nice bartender and good service. The beers were average. There were a few I liked and a couple that I wouldíve drain poured, but overall this was a nice experience. Donít know if I would return though.

Located near the big wine warehouses, can be a bit tricky to navigate to, but not too bad. Went we showed up we were the only people there. Service was great, the bartender was knowledgeable of all the beers and very friendly. Good selection of beers on tap and quite a few in bottles to go. No food here. Value was decent on draft and great on bottles. If you find yourself in Napa and donít like wine stop here for sure.
