This place has a cozy outdoor seating area. Table service was efficient. Good selection of self-brewed beers. The fish tacos on the seasonal menu were excellent. The sampler provides above average 6 ounce pours.

(Visited 08/2014): Tied House is located in Mountain View on Villa near Franklin. Street parking is available in the surrounding blocks.
The building is white stucco with lots of windows and trees on either side. The inside opens to a large brewpub with tables past the entrance and on the right, and a long bar on the left. Wooden tables, and high ceilings with exposed HVAC and hanging cut growler lights. Mug club mugs are hung behind the bar, and there is a small case with to-go bottles and merch. There is a patio as well.
Tied House has 14 house brews on tap both under their label and Hermitage. The selection encompasses mostly year-round offerings but there are a few seasonals and one-offs as well. On my visit these included a Maibock, Ale of the IMP, Single Hop Mosaic, Black Oops and Ale of the 2 Tun. The beers were average at best on the whole, with a couple being decent.
Service at the bar was alright during a weekday lunch. The bartender mentioned being hung over and didnít display a whole lot of knowledge about the beers. Still he was friendly enough.
Food at Tied House is pretty standard in terms of the menu. My sandwich was decent but nothing really memorable.
Overall this place was a bit of a letdown. There are better spots not too far of a drive from here.

Love the look, especially the outdoor area. I found service to be less than good. Like their beers the food is good but not spectacular. But itís still good.

I think every beer I had was from Hermitage and not Tied House but I enjoyed them. The ribs were pretty good and my bartender was very friendly.

This place is on my "never again" list for several reasons. First, the pretentiousness. This used to be a standard after-work happy hour spot, but we got tired of being treated like second class citizens because we were there to drink, not eat. Next, the beer. I cannot think of a more mediocre brewery in existence than Tied House. I have never tasted a beer of theirs that would rank above "so-so" in my book. Give it a pass unless you like mediocre beer served with a ítude.

Big warehouse with a long bar facing the tanks and plenty of seating. Old wooden tables, chairs and benches. They also have a patio. Service was slow and English is not required to be a waiter! I only had 1 of their beers, the oatmeal stout (decent). I asked if they had any IPA and he brought me a guest beer that I already had and didnÔŅĹt care for, but it was better on tap. When I asked what the seasonal beer was, I was told it was the guest IPA. I left quickly after that. The food was good (steak). Very noisy building. WonÔŅĹt be returning.

I finally learned what makes their Amber Light so frigginí good. Itís the ultimate session beer at 3.5%. Tied House finaly put up a chalkboard to showcase their beers. This wasnít the case in the past. I used to go there and drink Amber Lights and get a buzz but never drunk and now I know, they make the BEST Session Beer on the Peninsula. For the uneducated, a Session Beer is generally a beer with less than 4% alcohol that you can literally drink all day, or a session, maintaining a minor buzz but without getting drunk, or messed up. TIED HOUSE IS THE ONLY BREWERY IN THE BAY AREA WHO BREWS A SESSION BEER AND THEN DOES $6 GROWLER REFILLS. Before I get flamed, I know 21st Amendment and Steelhead (they are a chain you know) who does this. LONG LIVE TIED HOUSE. As long as I live in SF, I will still make the trip down to Mountain View for my 1/2 order of nachos (no chicken, thanks) growler refill and 2 or 3 tall amber lights. Thank you Tied House.

Not a bad place for a burger and a pint if you happen to visit downtown Mountain View. The Elk Burger was quite good along with the Cajun chips. As for the beer, I found the Alpine Gold to be the best of the brews I sampled. It was refreshing with a nice honey crispness to it. All of the beers on tap when I visited were in the 4-5% ABV range so donít go expecting strong or hoppy beers. Their specialty seems to be the light and low ABV stuff.

Huge restaurant with a school cafeteria feel to it. Cold with basic and bland decor. The beer is honestly just not good at all. It surprised me that a brewpub can stay in business this long making such poor product. half the beers in my flight had unacceptable levels of diacetyl, and all were under-attenuated and unbalanced. Combine this with an ambiance that is not at all comfortable, and I canít see bothering to come again, though itís not far from where I live.
