More of a rustic style brewpub with traditional pub grub. 10 beers on tap when I went, available in flights of 4. Service is friendly and generous in giving samples. Beer quality is pretty weak -- I didnít enjoy any of the beers and at least one had an infection. Given the quality of nearby breweries, Iíd definitely give this place a miss -- go to Churchillís Pub just down the road.

pretty generic brewpub...good location - probably why they stick around, but thereís just better food and beer elsewhere.

Located next door to Old California Restaurant Row in a Spanish style building. The place is rather large and has somewhat of a tired, chain restaurant feel. The beers are average with a couple of pretty good offerings. There appears to be only a standard lineup without any seasonals or special offerings. The food is fine and they offer a wide variety. I do not consider this one of the better brewpubs around.

Large restaurant pretty much across the street from Churchillís if you want some ratings. When I went the place was completely full and I was competing for a space at the bar with a softball team that was celebrating (loudly). Definitely not a fancy restaurant. I dont mind the noisy bar atmosphere but I do mind the slow and not overly friendly bar service. Didnt eat, the beers were not that good, I dont see much need to come back here.

Kind of an old-timey atmosphere inside. Small bar with a large bar area, decent amount of regular tables/seating. Service was pretty good, beers were okay, and prices were decent, too. Didnít see the food, so canít comment on that. Eight house beers and a few guest taps as well.

Another mall located brewpub - we had a bit difficulty locating it at the mall. Arrived right after a very busy lunch hour. We just had the beers - only 5 when we visited - and some of them of very scetchy quality. Lots of wood in the dining area. high tables in the bar area - dark wooden. The prices are fine. If you are a ticker - stop by for the ticks - if you enjoy good beers go somewhere else.

They serve 7 average beers of their own. Some rotation, but it doesnít change often. A not-so special brewery-restaurant, serving American food. Better than going to most American chain restaurants, Applebees, etc. Churchillís is just across the street, so itís probably better to eat/drink there, unless youíve been there a million times.

Decent overall. The beerís above average, and itís a nice change of scene from Stone. Who knew there were other breweries in the area? Just a stones throw (no pun intended) from Churchillís, this place is worth a visit. The service was average and the food was less than inspired, but I think Iíll be back again anyway to try some other seasonal/ specialty beers. Their beers tend toward the yeasty and crisp finish side, and some are quite good.
