Small little brewpub that would seem to be hard to get to had I not parked out on the street to go to ABC Wine & Spirits and just walked down here. Pretty much right on the beach, which is cool. Decently crowded on a Tuesday night. Found a seat at the bar and ordered a flight of their house beers. They were just okay for the most part, nothing truly terrible at least. Service was pretty good, too. I’d stick to a cocktail or one of the guest beers here, though, as they had a couple solid IPAs on like Mongo and Smog City Amarilla Gorilla.
Stopped by with Americanbrew. Met the brewer briefly. Seems like a nice enough guy. Easy parking next door. Long tasting bar with a few, craft-generic taps. Didn’t have the food. Good view of the harbor. Beers were mediocre, nothing great, nothing bad. $6 for a 6 flight that was generous in proportions.
A fine place more or less at the beach. Not the most exiting beers, but not bad in any way, most of them a bit uninteresting. The head brewer spotted us beer geeks and stopped by at our table sharing a coulple of beers with us, talking about his beers and other stuff. Cute waitresses that were friendly and quick. Didn’t try the food.
Had dinner here on a Wednesday night. Great views of the ocean, Oil Island, and Catalina in the distance, with mild surf sounds on the outside deck. Service was prompt and attentive, and the food arrived quickly. Only had one beer (Crude) which I enjoyed. Easy parking close by. And while the service was expedient, they didn’t make us feel rushed.
Stopped in here a few years ago to check things out. Awesome location right on the beach. Nice place, but the beers were below average. Too bad. I guess they do good business despite the mediocre beers. Not a bad place to stop for some tic’s.
Had lunch here on a Monday afternoon. They have an outdoor patio area over-looking the beach and the ocean, which is pretty dope. Very cheap sampler of the 6 house beers (I think it was $7), and they had an additional small batch espresso stout when I visited. My fish tacos were good, and the service was attentive but not overbearing. The inside seemed a little darker and gloomier. Parking sucks. The beers are very average. Nothing bad, but nothing really that good either. Doesn’t look like they have much of a rotation; it seems like they have 5 regulars and 1 or 2 rotating lines.
Went here late at night after the Rose Bowl. Great ambiance we sat all the way in the back which is right on the beach and just a perfect view of the ocean, the view rocked! The beer was nothing over the top but our pale ale and amber were very solid and exactly what we were looking for after an exhausting day. Food was great, french onion soup, lobster bisque and a pretty good kobe burger. Overall I’d go back just for the view and it’s right next to a pier to walk the meal off.
