Not technically a brewpub since they truck in the beer from the original brewery a few miles down the way. They however have the full lineup available. First off, this is a pain in the ass to find if you follow your GPS. It will bring you in on Ming Ave and it will show that it’s right by the fountain in front of the movie theater. Save yourself 20 minutes of wandering around aimlessly and drive around the back of the Vons. You will find another parking lot back there and a building that is unmarked from the movie theater side (might have a sign on the north side of the building, I didn’t notice).
Once you find your way inside you’ll see a bar that wraps around the one side with a fridge full of 22oz bottles. On the other end of the bar there is a soda fountain. Naturally there are some tables too. I showed up during the Niner/Cowboy game. It was ugly (in a good way) and at the time it was 28-3, SF. They offer tasters, pints, and growlers of everything. I had a pint of the Citra Simcoe IPA and tasters of the Zues and the Double Cent. Kind of interesting that they have three double IPAs on right now.
Subtotal was $5 for a pint and two more ticks. Not bad. Service was friendly and I like how they have an area where you can walk up to the bar and order a beer without having to lean over the people at the bar. This is the furthest from the free of the three locations so I probably wont be back but I will stop at the old brewery the next time I pass through town.
