alright so i went and i was not disappointed. this place used to be some weak lil brewery that i can not recall its name though i visited going on 5 years ago. well they have gussied it up and let me be the first to say its worth a stop! i was expecting to waltz in and out but then i found myself sitting at the bar ordering small 4 oz tasters @ 2-3 $'s( boo to people who serve beer and don't offer pay for small tasters or half pints) i drink the same volume and pay more do the math small beer drinkers are the $$makers! the bar tender was nice to look at but she lacked the inner geek i find drawn to drink more of. she was super nice and i hope she perfects her yummy sounding bloody mary's! then clay introduced himself as the beer buyer host etc. we shook hands to confirm our respective BA status and i was won over by his genuiness. i saw some older viscosity and some sours in the fridge and promised to return hungary and with friends. i believe i had hop jack, some pizza port, a dogfish and siamese dubble. lets get out to support this thing and keep an eye on clay as he rotates in some geekier beers for his fellow BA's.

happy hour at 38 degrees is a steal for all these great beers on tap! pints of good beer for 4 dollars!
selection of beers on tap is rotated, right now it seems that pale ales and winter beers are being featured.
looking forward to life and limb and duvel draft on tap today while watching ucla vs. usc
food at 38 degrees is a major plus. Onion rings look like donuts, so be careful.
Good selection of bottled beer that I would drink if I were a rich man.
Tap beers are best value. Flights of featured beer are a good deal as well.
Bartender who I have seen twice is knowledgable and has good taste. Don't remember his name though!

Went here for the Dogfish Head 120 Minute Tasting Event. Absolutely epic beer menu with so many choices. They had so many beers that I haven't been able to find in my local stores. The staff was really friendly and helpful when making a decision on the different beers and styles to choose from. Food was good, typical pub grub. Loved the atmosphere, lots of savvy beer drinkers in the crowd. Its a bit of a drive for me, but I would definitely return just for their selection of brews. Loved this place!

First time visited this place a couple of days after they opened. This used to be the California Brewing Company which wasn't that good. I walked in,sat down and noticed 38 beers on tap! Good beers! In Alhambra, of all places! Scanned the beer selection and saw Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. Ok, if a bar has just opened and they have Dogfish on tap, especially 90 Min., they got me hooked. They also have Saimese Twin Ale from Uncommon Brewers here on tap. As far as I know, I only seen this on tap here. An interesting but good beer you need to try at least once. Clay was a gracious host as are their bartenders. Keep it up and you will have returning customers definitely. Haven't tried the food yet, so I can't review on it. Nice big place with cool music playing. If you been to bars with a good selection of beers, you seen these on tap before, but this being Alhambra, this is the only place with such a selection here. Finally a place I don't have to take a freeway to visit.
THE best bar in Alhambra!

My wife and I love this place. We've been coming here since they opened. The management and wait staff have always been great. They share our love of quality hearty beer and food.
There are places with a greater number of taps but Clay and James do a great job of keeping their beer list populated with excellent choices covering the range of styles and breweries. I often wonder if a place with too many taps has trouble with lesser ordered beers going stale. No worries here. The taps are always fresh and tasty.
