Small brewpub. Not too busy on Saturday afternoon. Decent selection of drafts. Beer was average. Drafts available in half pints, forgot to ask about flights. Didn’t try the food. Okay prices.

Attractive, but cozy interior with nice art work on the walls. Seating inside and out. Great location near the capital.

Friendly service, average beer, food was Ok (tri tip) The interior was outdated and reminded me of a cafeteria. It wasn’t dirty but felt it. I wouldn’t come back

Smallish brewpub with a small patio area. Pretty empty on a Thursday afternoon. About 6 hours beers on tap and a few guest beers. Beers were pretty mediocre, but at least the service was quick and friendly. Pricing on the flight was pretty reasonable.

After I tried the IPA on tap at Stone a couple months before I decided I had to visit this place. That IPA at the time was probably my favorite IPA. We tried a sampler of everything they had which included a cask version of the brown. In the end I was slightly disappointed that nothing was as good as the IPA but its still worth trying. The bartender was helpful and nice. We ordered a plate of chili fries and someone got a burger. After a set of samples, 4 pints, fries, and a burger the tab was pretty low. The place is quite open despite how small it is. Very clean friendly environment and good food. I’d like to go back in the winter and try the wheatwine.

We stopped in for dinner on a Friday night. The place never had more than a table or two empty. The Black and Blu burger was good, the chili was not. The children’s fish and chips order was 50/50: fish was good, waffle fries were bland. We had the pale ale, stout and barley wine. The pale was great and the other two decent. Stop by if you’re in Sacramento.

Second time here, first time I have had food. Nice pub atmosphere, nothing too fancy, but for a brewpub it is right in there. Had the fish and chips and a pale ale, both were average side. Waffle fries could use some seasoning up. Service was very good. As I recall the last time, I had a couple of pints, again, average. They seem to be just a kinda average place, and they were busy both times, so it seems to work for them. Easy to find, decent parking on the street, at least on a Sunday night.

They had a great guest beer selection - Big Daddy from Speakeasy,....one of the best T-shirts we ever bought (Rosebud). Although the pub is not great, would definitely come back when next time in Sacramento

(Visited 10/2012): Rubicon is located in Midtown Sacramento on Capitol Ave and 20th. Street parking is fairly plentiful in the area but you might have to walk a bit.

There is a small patio out front. Inside there is table seating on the left side and the bar is on the right. Boards listing the beers available in both areas.

Rubicon has around 8 house beers on tap and they offer a sampler. On my visit they had their flagship beers plus a few I have not tried like Capricorn Black, Winter Wheat Wine and Cali Stout. All of the beers I tried were decent. They also have a couple guest taps from the likes of Auburn Alehouse and Sierra Nevada.

Service on my visit was pretty good. There was a SF Giants game on TV and the bar was packed so we sat at a table, and the server was efficient and knew their beers pretty well.

We did not have any food on our visit.

Overall this is a nice little brewpub to visit in Sacramento.
