Very nice spot downtown on the square. House beers were OK, but they had some nice guest taps.

Iíve been here a few times and recommend it if your in the Concord area. I got lunch here one time but I canít remember what I got. I donít recall hating it though. The beer list is always good. Iím not a big fan of the house beers, so its a good thing they only have 2 or 3 usually. The location is nice in downtown Concord with other restaurants nearby and a large parking garage very close by.

A nice pub with a Irish pub feel. Nice big bar with 16 taps, plenty of seating inside and a patio outside. They are in the process of moving the brewery, so they only have 1 house beer on tap (Shortyís Revenge), the rest are guest taps from local brewerys. Food was good, service was good and friendly. They have a cooler full of local/international beer for orders to go.
Drakes is brewing the Shortyís Revenge during the transition.

Great place to visit if youíre in the area. I really like the English style IPA, which I believe is there classic IPA. The last time I stop by they had a great guest tap selection as well. Sweet place.

I was told they are in the process of moving (since I visited a month ago this may have already happened). Due to this the selection was reduced. They had three house brews on that I hadnít had before. Also they have a wonderful guest tap list including RR Elder, RR Younger and Drakeís Denogginizer. I finished up my Denogginizerr and was asked if I wanted anything else and I replied I was done. It took another 40 minutes before anyone returned to my table. So it really sucked sitting there with an empty beer glass and actually ready to go for that long

Best brewpub for about a 20 mile radius. Staff is cool and the beer selection includes E.J. Phair’s own plus some really great guest beers. (Past examples I recall are Russian River and Green Flash.) Their Pale Ale is a perennial favorite (available in bottles) but all of their beers are worth trying. The Brewmaster Dinners and pairing events (i.e. Belgians and Cheese, Winter Brews and Chocolate) are intimate and fun. About a 10 minute walk from Concord BART.

Had some good beers but not a place worth going back to in my opinion unless I lived close.

My local... The food is great. The service rocks. Their beer is great and they always have awesome guest beers. It can get loud if itís busy but I still love this place. The patio rocks in the summer.

NIce ale house. The brewing operation just moved to Pittsburg, CA where a new brewpub is to open. Meanwhile the old location is rather pubby in a spacious American way. Had the English IPA and the Schwarzbier. Both good. Had the El Diablo burger and that was very good indeed, as was the optional potato salad.

From notes 2006. Thankfully for these guys, BART (the Bay Area rapid transist system) did a Spare the Air day and I could ride anywhere for free. I randomly decided to stop at Concord and stumbled upon E.J.ís. The design of the place is nice, but nothing overly odd or unique. They had their own brews on tap and numerous other guest brews. I passed on the guest brews and went for the English IPA, which I thought was very good. And hey, for $3, it makes it even better. I didnít eat anything off their menu, but it looked like they offered a basic fare.
