As a íplace,í this is a pretty cool joint. Itís the spot all the young Santa Cruz folk who wear only green and brown clothes go to. Unfortunately, the beer generally ranges from somewhat above average to garbage ashtray. Judging by the litany of off-flavors Iíve tasted from their offerings, they just donít really control their fermentation. Higher alcohols, random acidities... They get by on their íorganic brewerí rep, thatís for sure.

Located in an outdoor mall/shopping center with a number of wine, coffee, beer, and other consumable related businesses. The brewery is near the rear of the lot and features a small downstairs bar with just a couple taps (cash only) and the full upstairs bar with all their beers and some snacks. Flights of 8 are offered and theyíre pretty cheap (only about $7). The beers on the whole are pretty mediocre, but the pumpkin chocolate porter was pretty decent. Quick service despite a packed house. Decent place, but the beer isnít very good.

Messy, lowkey place. I did not have any food there, just a beer. I had their pale ale, which did not stand out. Still, a nice place to hang out.

Visited June 8, 2013 on a trip through Santa Cruz.
This is a large place with a bar "upstairs", a patio with plenty of seating, and a kind of garage type area under the building with another bar. Lots of artsy stuff on the walls around the bar. Service was pretty slow. One bartender and a couple of bar backs.
The beer was not very good but I suppose you could choke it down with some food from the bakery next door or some jerky from the butcher shop.

Nice relaxing lowkey place on the westside with an outside patio, decently priced beer, and food available (delivered) from the bakery next door.

Odd place - kind of worn and very woody, dark interior, small bar, and some seats, also a small seating area in front over looking the parking lot. Our table was dirty, which pulls my ambience down. They had 9 beers on draft when we visited, but all of mediocre to poor quality - which proves to me, that organic is not better. If youíre a ticker drop by otherwise stay away. Worst place we visited in Santa Cruz.

June 2009. This is quite the promising location -- kinda touristy, but kitschy and quaint, a mix of a warehouse front and a woody hippie joint. None of the beers here were all that good unfortunately, because the little tasting room is kinda cozy. Food is available, brought over from the next-door cafe. Stop by if youíre in the area; there are those that like the beer.
