Modern. IPads serve as tap beer lists. Bar has an ice portion to keep the pints cold. Far out. Lots of good craft beers. Active participation in events like Sacramento Beer Week. Had lots of conversation with the bar guys. Good experience. 06/12/2014 downgrade. Drove 20 mi rt for a BA beer only to be told itís been off over a day. Yet just before I left the beer list on Facebook listed it. Not good.

Small bar in the downtown Davis with an extensive beer list. Kind of dead on a Sunday night during a school break, which was fine with me.

We grabbed a table and tried a few beers. The beers are all good, but maybe not a tickerís paradise despite the large number of taps. Beers are all to be found on the tablet menus, which is neat, but I could also see it being a bit problematic if it was really busy.

Pints are fairly priced and the service was good. Solid neighborhood place to grab a beer, though could certainly see it being cramped.

Bartenders know the 60 taps pretty well, even though new and good stuff in constantly coming in. The ice bar is really neat. I like the iPads a lot, because I can just look over all the beers at my table, instead of hovering around the bar. The patio is great too.

This is great place for beer drinkers. 60 beers on tap with more bottled beers. A bonus is that itís down the street from the Davis Beer Shoppe.

This is a student hangout in downtown Davis that has 60 beers on tap. The menu is displayed on hanging monitors as well as on three iPads on the bar. There is a selection of high-quality but not rare bottled beers. There are a dozen stools at the bar and enough table seating for 20 or so patrons. The music is old and new rock. Food can be delivered from a neighboring Thai restaurant.

This is a bit of a crowded interior, but there is a good-sized patio. A long bar, with about 40 beers on tap. The first time I walked in, some guy shoved an IPad in front of my face. Pretty stupid. I can see the tap handles, fine, thank you. Also they have big screen TVs with the tap list. They have a frozen area on the bar where you can put your beer to make it colder. Worked really well with my tulip glass. Bartenders have been largely clueless when I go there. All in all, this place reeks of smug douchiness from the name of the place to the ipads.
