I spent a glorious afternoon and evening out in Agora! I never thought I’d say that.
Really nice place that was very easy to find, right off the 101.
Welcoming staff and knowledgable bartender.
The space is very nice and there is a great looking patio.
Looking forward to going back and trying even more of their beers.

Wow, how refreshing it was to visit Ladyface. This establishment has everything down to a perfect science: beautiful scenery, gorgeous ambiance inside and on the patio, a vast assortment of their high quality house beers, good selection of guest taps, quick/efficient/friendly/knowledgeable staff, and high end gastropub level food. Their own house beers are excellent, way above average quality with an affinity for saisons. Our food was incredible: the olive medley, pretzel, jalapeno mac n cheese, fries, pork belly BLT. Even the cole slaw with the BLT was boss, some of the best I’ve ever had. Prices were decent, but for the quality of food and beer the prices are excellent. Really deserving of its 5-star status here. Can’t wait to see this brewery hone its saisons and sours down. My only qualm here is that their house yeast is extremely attenuating and gets all of their beers bone dry to the point on the hoppy stuff that it was overpowering.
Not much has changed over the years aside from the amount of beers available. The house beers are pretty good, and every time I’ve been there I’ve found at least one or two new beers to try. They also do casks every week.
Service is always fast and attentive. Food is really good. If you eat there try anything that has the pretzel bun. They have a little bit of everything but what gets me every time is the smoking woodchip aroma; makes me want to buy some pulled pork.
They hooked us up for RBSG ’12 as well. Great people, great beer, great food, and a scenic area. Oh, and if you need more ticks go down the street (literally, just a mile further) and check out Lab.
Stopped by for a long lunch and a sampler tray. Very bright, open, and clean place, staff were friendly and had a decent grasp on the beers. They had quite a few house brews on tap, enough that the sampler gave me a bit of a buzz, and several guest beers. Food was tasty, would definitely go back.
Visited my brother who was staying just up the street from this place at a nice Sheraton. What a nice surprise to find! Lots of interesting beer and two guest taps (typically they have three I think). Food was very good. Only complaint is that the place did not actually open until 11:30 (this was on a Tuesday, so maybe 11:00 on the weekends?). I’ll see if I can fix that up.
Went into Ladyface yesterday and I am so impressed with what they have done over there. I was surprised how good the beers were and I look forward to going back again when I’m in the area.

Visited to interview the Cyrena and Dave for an upcoming HopPress article. As far as the brewpub, it is a gorgeous little building with a nice sit down restaurant area and a long bar. Currently 16 taps, most of which are guest tap (and ALL of them craft beer, and good ones at that). Currently they only have two of their beers on, but they plan on doing more soon. They do growler fills, and have a new beer engine to do weekly cask beers (according to Dave). Their brewing facility is connected to the restaurant area, and is a small little 3 fermenter set up (brand new equipment). Some room to grow. Barrels on the wall, this place will have sours available by summer and they sound fantastic. Parking was easy. Didn’t try the food on this trip, but the Chef has some big name (Spago anyone?) restaurants on his resume, and the aromas from the kitchen were delicious. I look forward to eating and drinking some more of their stuff the next time I am back. I expect that this brewery will be one to watch in the next few years, they are really on the path to excellence! I’ll include a link to the HopPress interview once is ready. In a recent trip I sampled their burger and my friend had the Coq-a-la-biere. Both were awesome!
