    First off. Try all their taps. They have their own and it's amazing. Second. If you get Brandon, make sure to take care of him. Cuz he's fucking amazing and one of the best out there. <3 Ale House!!!!

    Their flight of fives is good. The proximity to the beach makes this place one of the popular places in PB. Good service, good beer, and good ambiance.

    1/2 off does not apply to all apps. This isn't specified on any sign or menu. And they don't accept expired IDs as proof if age, which is simply annoying.
