It’s been a long time since I’ve been here and I don’t remember my previous experience. Wait staff is not as attentive as they probably could be. Right now they just opened up so maybe they’re under staffed. No coasters? Seems odd. I had a Jambalaya Pizza and it was amazing!! Of the six BB taps listed on their menu they’re out of three, though they had one extra brew not listed. They’re still serving Winter bottles which was disappointing. I didn’t make s speciAl trip, which was fortunate. I’ll return. But, only when I’m in the area.

I have oddly never been here before, so I decided to fix that. Right in downtown Hayward, but there seems to be plenty of free parking, which is a bonus. This place could not look more brewpub from top to bottom. Pretty much defines the stereotype. Outdoor patio, plenty of inside seating, large bar. They had a dozen or so taps including some guest beers. The menus are all printed up with the standard default core beer taplist and it was a bit challenging to even figure out what they actually had on tap. Flights of four available for $11. When I was there they had a few special beers; all were available as part of the flight. I did not try the food. Service was pleasant, friendly and prompt. Beers were pretty meh overall other than the Hellimony which was a surprisingly pleasant rye IPA. Looks like a fun place to hang out, with beer as a secondary feature.

Oh crap, how have I not rated this yet? I’ve been here a number of times for a lunch break during Bistro festivals. The short version is that the food is pretty good, the service decent, the beer meh, and the prices bad. No idea on the parking situation but I’ve never driven here so all I can say is that the parking situation all around downtown Hayward is pretty bad.

They have a patio which is nice and they always have a seasonal beer on tap but most of their seasonals are different versions of their fruit wheat. They have one or two stronger beers they release throughout the winter but that’s about it, aside from their half a dozen normal beers. Even though there isn’t much here for me I’ll likely stop in again at some point since it is just a block from the Bistro.

In downtown Hayward just up the street from The Bistro. The place was darkly lit on a rainy weekend night. Not a huge crowd, but a handful of people at tables and at the bar. Kind of an old west feel. Bartenders were friendly enough, service was quick. The beers were okay at best. Price was decent ($6-something for 5 samples). Okay place for a few ticks, but not some place I need to go back to.

Each time I’m in the area this place gets out prioritized until now. Very happy to finally visit. Right here on B-Street there’s loads of patio seating and some cool rustic oak décor inside. I had the hot pastrami on rye and it was dynamite. Tried only the “on premise” brewed beer and it was ok. Make sure to take a trip toward the rest rooms where their maybe 10 barrel brewhouse is located as well as a small fermenter farm. Nice set up. I’ll definitely be back to try more of their menu and more of their beer offerings made here. Friendly staff and friendly atmosphere.

We were trying to eat here right before catching a movie across the street. The wait staff was very helpful and got us seated. The ambiance was pretty standard I guess, nothing special. The burger with blue cheese was pretty good. Seemed like a average value. But the beers are really hit and miss. D of the 5 beer sampler and 3 were good. Overall, not bad,not great.

This place is close to the Bistro, so I usually head out here for a bite to eat during the beer festivals for a breather. It’s usually pretty busy but I’ve never had to wait for a table or service. The food is decent and the beers are Ok. Nice place inside and out on the patio. They seem to have a reputation even among non craft drinkers as I always hear this place mentioned when I’m talking to people about the Bay Area beer scene. I guess because they’ve been around forever. The beer is forgettable, but a good stop for some tic’s if that’s your thing.

Stopped in here for a late lunch on 8/7/10. Place has a good feel to it in terms of both cleanliness and clientele. The service was good. They had 6 beers on the sampler. Nothing extraordinary, but decent. Tried their pizza known as the Wrangler and it was very good. Worth walking across the street for after the Bistro’s IPA Fest.

Decent beers and good appetizers. I had a sampler to try some of their brews and my buddies had some of their beers and we had an appetizer tray. We sat outside and had to wait a long time as our waitress forgot us several times.

Average beer and good food. Right down the street from the Bistro and they never enter any beers in the many fests the Bistro holds. Curious? The pizza is pretty good.
