It looks like a converted garage with the brewery in the back, a few barrels for ageing special beers to one side and the bar at the other with a small sitting area in the front. Very cozy place with decent beers.

More or less a garage made to look like a brewpub it seems. It’s just a small seating area and a few stools at the bar, with the brewery taking up most of the space in the room. Heard some talk of moving to a different location though. Anyway, it looks rather bad in there, but in a good way if you know what I mean. The beers were mostly nice too, especially the Kölsch surprised me. Friendly, maybe a tad too friendly maybe, service. Only five beers on tap, and one bottle to go. Stop by if you’re in the area.

Visited here back in February 2013 and forgot to rate it. Nice little brewhouse in the middle of Sonoma valley. I didn’t know what to expect when I showed up, but they had several beers available by pint or by sampler... Most of them were above average with some interesting selections as well. I seem to remember a Gruit??? Anyway, the brewer was sitting at the bar just chillin with the local crowd so I got a chance to chat with him. Really nice guy who has some brewing experience from Chicago. Seemed really passionate. The brewery is really small. Most of the equipment is visible from the bar about 10 feet away. I got a bottle of the Isis, and Freude to go. Both were very interesting brews. If you’re in the area, I would recommend stopping by for sure.

We managed to drive right by the place because it was dark and there arent any big signs outside. Look for the sandwich board out front. There is parking around the side of the complex, but not a whole lot.
Inside there is a long bar on the right with a board on the wall telling you what’s available. When we went there was a Kolsch, Roggen, Black IPA, and a fig lambic (from the bottle). The Pale ran out before we got there.
Along the opposite wall is the stack of barrels. Only one of the 4 was labeled and it said it was full of the roggenbier. In the back is the brewing equipment. We happened to be there while a band was playing. They were pretty bad but it was fun. Got to hear some Johnny cash played on a ukulele and a couple bars of some slayer played on an acoustic guitar. But it was fun, even if painful at times.
There was only one bartender there and he wasn’t real happy that he was left alone on a night with live music. Regardless he seemed capable of serving the dozen or so people sitting at the bar.
The beers were all nice and I enjoyed them but they were not really to style.
