Right in the middle of what seems to be a main drag in downtown San Jose...which admittedly is much more happening than I remember from my visits down there as a kid.

There are a number of tables here and not much of an actual bar to sit at. They also have some typical bar food like sausages, fries, and sandwiches. Tap list is listed up on a large screen, so no guessing what theyíve got on.

Tap list is pretty good, though nothing amazing. I opted for one of the Faction 2 Hop pale ales that I hadnít tried yet. Seems like they get a pretty good selection overall, though.

Decent place to grab some Alpine beers and some unique brats. Small area inside with a sports big screen. Nice back patio outdoor area. If youíve got $40 to spend there are some good bomber bottles to go for. Speedway stout was also on tap. 4 different firestone walkers.

Alpine Nelson among other dankness on tap. Chill brahs working there who know their beer. First establishment review in years but was needed after seeing 3 stars. Bottle highlights were multiple crooked staves, upright, and other great shit. Outdoor seating is perfect for a sunny afternoon in South Bay.

This is a small bar (without much of a bar ironically) right on 1st across the street from Good Karma and around the corner from Gordon Biersch. Nice area full of shops, a trolley, and no parking anywhere. They have a couple dozen taps and some bottles in addition to sausages. Sounds like a good place. The selection however isnít as good as it is across the street. The service was very friendly and sent me off with a take out menu. They have some good stuff on tap like Celebration Ale, Anchor Our Special Ale, some Bruery beers, and Drakes Jolly Rodger, but I didnít see anything that would make travel across the peninsula. That said I guess these guys host some bottle shares and again, they have sausage, so Iíll probably stop back in at some point. Prices were high, as one might expect from a beer bar in a big city.

Really cool little joint in downtown San Jose that sported a relatively small but unique tap list. Definitely craft-inspired. There wasnít a single macro in the place. Meat counter in the ídining roomí that had an array of house prepared sausages. Had a rabbit dog with grilled onions and sriracha ketchup/wasabi mayo. Itís and the poutine were delicious. Only a handful of tables and bar. This place is new but already could benefit from an expansion. Industrial feel. Will be back!

Nice place in a good location in downtown San Jose. The industrial feel of the place left me a bit cold, but you canít knock the selection. They also offer flights of any beer on tap with healthy pours. The service was pleasant. Didnít try the food. Good place to hang out and have a couple beers. Overall this is a nice little craft pub crawl if you hit up Good Karma across the street.

A small place with some good taps. Food in house is a plus(I did not get a chance to try). They have a back patio that would be a desired place to post up. Best place downtown for craft beer lovers.

Love this place. They have a huge number of taps, always stuff that is far out or uncommon in this area. They display all their beers on a huge TV with notes, serving size and price. They have a wide range of sausages and they serve delicious fries cooked in duck fat.

Definitely a "go-to" spot for me in San Jose. The owners and workers are all extremely nice and friendly and go out of their way to help you pick a beer you will like. Iíve never run into any problems with service (both food and beer). The prices may be a little stepper than other bars in the area, but you are also paying for quality. Overall, for how new the place is, I think itís already a must go-to spot for any beer lover in the South Bay. It only gets better from here. The owner mentioned that he plans the expand the back patio to accommodate another bar to ease congestion inside on those crazy weekend nights. Looking forward to their teunure in Downtown San Jose
