What a tasting room should be. Incredible beers served by a knowledgeable staff. The selection was almost too much to try. Fortunately my wife was our designated driver so we could sample a wide variety of styles. Great selection of beers to go as well.

I absolutely love this place. The decor is awesome and the beer is delicious. Whenever I am in California, I stop in. This time I was able to stock up on some of my favorites to take home.
