Visited on a cold, wet Monday afternoon. The Barrelworks bar is off to the side of the main restaurant/bar area. I went in only to pick up some bottles and did not drink at the bar. Taps: 10 wild ales and eight strong ales. Some recent-year vintages available, too. Variable pricing. Bottles in a small cooler. Friendly, informed bartender, who answered my questions fully, and then let me wander around and make purchasing decisions on my own. Had to listen to (or rather overhear) some loud corporate-speak from a few visiting reps at the bar. Anyway, this is certainly the best place to sample or pick up bottles of very limited FSW beers -- things that will probably never show up at your neighborhood bar or beer store.

Stopped here on a Sunday night to hook up with SamGamgee. Had not been here before but have had the sours along with many of the regular FW lineup. The bartender, Melissa was very helpful and knowledgeable, as we arrived first. Sampled most of the sours that we had not tried, the wine blends were amazing. Moved over to the restaurant side for dinner along with regular beers. Service there was very good also. The bottle selection was pretty wiped out being Sunday. Overall a worthwhile experience, worth the trek.

I was there for the bottle release, so I’ll update my rating again after I make a normal visit. But the place is awesome. Great beers, beautiful decor and lots of great people.

hard to rate this pl;ace seperately from the brewery/restaurant that’s connected, but I’ll try. In short, I LOVE IT! Fantastic beer. Can’t get a full pour, but everything else is awesome.

Le temple du chêne et de la fermentation audacieuse est tout simplement l’endroit le plus charismatique que j’ai eu la chance de cotoyer. La sélection est tout simplement phénoménale, le staff au sommet de sa forme et c’est également possible de repartir avec des bouteilles de Barrelworks et différents vintage de la BA series. Une fois que la lumière s’éteint, t’as juste à traverser de l’autre côté pour le resto-bar Firestone Walker avec ses classiques au sommet de leur fraîcheur.

Comments: An incredible place worth great lengths to visit...this is a specialty tasting room that focuses on FW specialty one-offs like their sours, anniversary blends, components of their sours and anniversary blends, experimental offerings. Everything on tap was very good to outstanding...most are available on tap only or for sale in special release bottles. This is an incredible place to savor a large variety of FW’s best and rarest beers and none of them dissapointed. You can walk away with bottles to go including cellared anniversary bottles all the way back to FW15 ($90), FW16 ($75), FW17 ($50), FW18 ($25). Bottleworks Lil Opal also for sale. Overall, do not miss and double check their opening hours as they are NOT the same as the brewpub attached.

t0rin0  (1529) Do Not Resuscitate, California | November 19, 2014
Visited May 17, 2014.

FINALLY made it in. Been trying to go for several years and they have these really crappy hours which makes it tough to stop in if you’re just passing through town. The one time (before) that I actually did get there during business hours they were closed for some event. And to top it off, when I made it in May they shut the bar down early due to the Bretta Rose release. Really? I strolled in an hour before closing and there was no line. I could buy as many cases of Bretta as I wanted (I got several) but they wouldn’t serve me a drink. The only line was for the one and only bathroom. Natrually they apologized for not wanting my business. I signed the credit card bill, took my boxes of beer, and ran out the door to find a bathroom. A tree would have done but there were a lot of people out in the parking lot, so I took off for the McDonalds down the street. This was about the extent of my visit. Ironically this was the same McDonalds that I went to after they ignored us for 30 minutes at their restaurant next door on a prior visit. I don’t get these people.
