I want to like this place because the employees are nice but its in a terrible looking neighborhood and every single beer (minus the barleywine) was infected. Ugh. Pretty dead otherwise but it was a Wednesday night. When I was there they werent doing samplers but they did give me a sample of everything and let me pick which one I wanted a full glass of.

Rather large brewery with a concert area toward the back of the brewery space. Two bars right near the entrance. The service was slow at first, but friendly and good otherwise. The beers here are truly awful. The owners/brewers spent awhile talking to me about each of the beers and seemed convinced they were great, but an empty place on a Friday night isnít a good sign. Also, this place is in a pretty bad area, so be aware of that.

I think this place must have improved a lot over the last couple of years, based on the previous ratersí comments. The location is definitely in one of the worst parts of Fresno. The brewery and location is much larger than I expected. Based on the fliers adorning the walls, they are doing a lot of live-music club type of activities. They had seven of their beers on tap the night I went, and the beers ranged from average to very good. They had an "American Wheat" on tap that wasnít listed here, which was great. The Red Ale is going away, to be replaced by an IPA. It wonít take much recipe adjustments to make the Red into an IPA. If youíre dying for beer in Fresno itís definitely worth a stop. I was very pleased with my trip there.

I was very cautious to make sure I had the right address and open/close times, I was there well within hours of operation but the place was locked up tighter than Fort Knox. When I got back to the hotel I called and left a message saying I had stopped by and asking them to call me and let me know when the brewery would be open....I recieved NOTHING in return. I had stoped at 3 local liquor stores and none of them had heard of Full Circle Brewing...what a waste of 3hrs.

I was out in CA for a few months in a pretty bad area for beer until I stumbled upon this hole in the wall. The brewery is in a shitty part of town and looks really run down. As you walk in you see the bar and brewing vessels right away. Itís a fairly large place with a stage and such. They have about 6-7 of their brews on tap and a few wines/meads also. I got to talk to the head brewmaster for a while and he brought out some of the "private stock" for me to sample. Their "Bad-Ass Barleywine" from 05/06 and 06 RIS are f-ing amazing! I was very surprised that they had beer that was actually good. A few of their other brews are questionable though. They also do growler fills. They only catch here is that their"big beers" will run you about $40 a growler fill. That is the only downfall from this brewery, too pricy. This is definetly a place that you should stop by and check out if you are in the Fresno area!

Was staying at the Radisson hotel just down the street for a conference so thought Iíd check this place out. We were there during a Twelfth night festival and the place was overrun by folks dressed in period costume playing medieval music, dancing and generally making merry. It was a fun atmosphere to drink beer in. The beer itself was all over the map. I literally had one of the best stouts Iíve ever tried (the Russian Imperial) and one of the worst travesties to beer drinking anywhere (the Cluster Fuggle cream ale) back to back. Neat place, but the neighborhood was pretty sketchy.

Bar staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Live music on weekends can be fun. much work goes into each beer and it shows. Everything on tap is unique and interesting. Watch out for the imperial stout (11%).

Cool people. the building seems like an upscale garage. beer was descent. The part of town is very shady. The website needs updating.
