Just off I-80 in the small downtown area of Auburn. From the restaurant, you can see the dome of the county courthouse which is a pretty neat building. It’s in one of the brick buildings located right on the corner, so pretty easy to spot, though parking can be tough to find.
Plenty of bar space and restaurant seating in here. Probably about an even mix of tourists and locals and a rather substantial list of beers on tap (I think about a dozen during our stop). They do flights as well as full and half pours and have a decent selection of whiskey if you’re interested in that. Has sort of a western, rustic feel to it.
The beer selection runs a pretty wide range of styles. I wasn’t terribly impressed with too many of their beers, but the hoppy stuff was pretty good and I liked their brown ale. The staff and service were great and quite friendly. Prices on the beers were good as well.
Definitely worth a stop on your way up to Truckee or Reno or whatever.
always a pain in the arse to park, but that’s because this is a nice little brick restaurant and pub in the middle of touristy downtown auburn off I-80. Good food, and there’s usually something good on tap. Not a lot of great beers, but several good ones.
Rerating this place. Went back and many more beers were available. All were solid. Even some nicely done lagers which is rare. Definitely an improvement from last time when only 3 or 4 beers were on tap. That said the food this time was a very small portion. The burger was good but was crammed on a tiny plate with a tiny amount of fries. The last time I was here there must have been four times the fries and a larger burger. Left a little hungry. Waitress also spent 20 minutes explaining to another table how she wanted to be a medical helper or something and how this job "sucks". Good beer though, good little portions of food, worth a trip.
Stopped in Sunday afternoon, pretty packed at the bar as well as tables. Friendly and attentive bartender. Decent selection of their in-house brews, imperial IPA was pretty good. Didn’t try the food. Parking can be a bit tricky when that area is packed.
we love this place! tons of beers to choose from, pretty darned good food, and a cool old brick building location. it gets crowded, but there are plenty of beers to tide you over til your table is ready :)
Beautiful brick historic building in old town. Bartenders and staff were friendly and the food was good (not great) although the portions were a bit small. Order the sampler of all the beer available. Every beer is brewed on-site. The beer is tasty, creative and something for everyone. The Shanghai Stout was a stand out of the offerings.
Had lunch here and some brews. Nice rustic place in Old Town Auburn, not far off Highway 80. Service was great, no complaints. Selection of beers was very good, all the typical brewpub offerings and some great seasonals. Food was typical brewpub fare with some items being overpriced, but the fish tacos were excellent and very reasonably priced. Value is about average all around. Fun place to stop and check out, the food, beer and atmosphere are great.
Great location in the heart of Auburn Old Town. Inside a cramped dining area and narrow bar, but it works. There’s a more spacious patio area outside though. With my group of four we had about seven different beers of theirs, all of them great to excellent. The service was good with a knowledgeable and timely server. The food and beer selection was about average for a brewpub. On the food side all the servings were large. I had the Ruben, which was huge and delicious. My friends had the andouille, fish and chips and a salad. Everyone agreed that the food was good but not worth the higher prices. The beer was priced reasonable at around $4-6 pint.
