Not much of a lunch crowd but we were there a little before noon. Only 3 beers on tap. I asked about the Motorman’s Reserve and then ordered the IPA. I think the server ended up giving me the Reserve. At least I hope she did for the brewer’s sake because it sure was not an IPA in my book! I didn’t feel like causing a fuss and the beer tasted good (just not as an IPA) so I just drank it and ate my Ahi Tuna Burger, which by the way, was very good. Otherwise it was a like so many other brewpubs around the country - good food, OK beer and nothing to really make it stand out. I’d go back if in the area but wouldn’t go out of my way.

Visited on Monday 01/07/08 at about 4:00pm. Place was deserted. My friend and I sat at the bar and ordered an appetizer (spinach/artichoke dip). He had a pint of the porter, while I had the sampler. The bartender was very friendly and attentive, though not as knowledgable about beer as we were. The food took a long time to come, but that was okay. They have six taps brewed on premises, though they were out of the red ale when I visited. The decor is best described as early 20th century red brick reminded me of a firehouse. Dark and quiet when we were there, though I have been before when it was bustling and noisy. The relief bartender was also attentive and friendly she and I struck up a conversation about cars, of all things. Nice place. (here comes my standard closing line). If I lived closer, I’d visit a lot more often.

Dine here at least a few times a month. Very flavorful food. Today’s lunch was pork chops with ancho chili saucevery good. The beer is good. Their fall pumpkin ale is quite good.

Had lunch and the South bay IPA. The salad was fine (can’t ruin a salad). The beer seemed a little off and perfumy, bitter without the aroma I expect from an IPA

The beer is on point and the service is excellent. I wish I could get over to Red Car more! Have you had an IPA today?
