Place recommended by a friend. Nice rounded selection of taps and bottles, including some special releases. Low key vibe, some TVs, but music playing over them. Worth checking out.

Great place with local and domestic micros. This is a beer bar. I don’t even know if they have wine. They have good beer at semi high price. Daily list of whats on tap.

Good selection and a knowledgeable staff. Often not too crowded. Great place to stop by on a weekend afternoon and sit at one of the small tables out front. My go-to when ordering food in San Carlos for the family on Friday night and conveniently able to stop by for a pint or two while waiting for the food.

Oddly, I have never been in this place before, despite eating at the Refuge several times in the past few years. It finally became necessary this weekend though; they had a hella good taplist for their 2nd anniversary. I arrived about 3:30 on a Saturday. Place was hopping and getting steadily busier. Despite the crowds, actually getting a beer was not a challenge at all - kudos to the staff on efficient crowd control! Beers were amazing, but that is not really a fair assessment of their normal lineup, so I will pull back the score a bit. Pretty standard bar atmosphere with a small outside seating area. Will return.

This is a great bar. aside from the parking situation, wide open bar, easy to chat with friends without it being too loud. Their bottle and draft selections are incredible...possibly the best beer bar south of San Francisco. The staff knows their beer and there’s no snobbish crap here. I had a great time.

Have been meaning to stop here and finally got a chance to. Small bar but plenty of places to sit. A couple dozen taps with a pretty good variety and a respectable bottle list. Service is kind of hard to grade since my friend works here and he told the bartender that was working that I was coming in. She seemed friendly to everyone else, too.

Small place with a great selection of both bottles and draughtbeer. Service was friendly and prices fair. No food served but you’re allowed to bring outside food. (Try the pastrami-sandwich from nextdoors...) Will definitely stop by here in the future.
