    This brewpub is definitely worth a little detour. Take a sampler and find out which of 18 beers you like best. Then have your growler filled with your favorite. Great bites too.

    Heaven on earth for West Coast IPA. Beer Advocate top rated Blind Pig (Single IPA) and Pliny The Elder (Double IPA) on tap and bottles to go. If you carry out be sure to drink fresh and keep chilled.

    The best thing about This place is obviously the world-class beer but their prices are a close second. Very reasonably-priced pints and pours. Oh, and eat some Pliny Bites. Yesss.

    One of the finest craft breweries in the country. They master many styles including IPAs and sours. Don't overlook other beers to get Pliny the Elder, others are fantastic too!

    Be patient waiting for your beer, it will be worth the wait. Of course, get the Pliny the Elder, but the Row 2 is also a must. Also, a growler of Pliny for $22 is one of the best deals of life.
  • Ranu R.
    Get the full flight to sample everything. Their sours are the best. Pizza and house salad were both great accompaniments. Right off the highway and easy to find.

    All belgium drinks come in a specific cup size so you don't need to tell your waiter/waitress the pint size you desire. It will save you time and it will also make sure you won't look like a noob.

    The sampler is so cheap that they're basically paying you to taste 18 beers. After the sampler, get seconds of the sweet Belgians, and Pliny. The sours of the sampler will accentuate their sweetness.
