The South Bay’s Original Artisan Beer Destination

Beer and the brewing process is a fine art. Brewers are sometimes extremists, sometimes subtle, but all of them make beers with distinct personalities, which often reflect their own passions. Our focus is the excitement of sharing every beer we curate.

Building relationships with brewers over the last nine years has led to incredible opportunities in sharing occasional, and often very rare works from these ‘artists’.

We focus on beers that brewers hang their hats on as well as beers that will never see another brew due to the fleeting nature of a recipe. Our relationship with the artisan beer community is what has set our uniquely curated tap list aside from most, and thus brings a very unique experience to you, our guests.

The end result is a list that’s different, intriguing, and constantly evolving, like art in nature.

Our selection is strongly American with influences and ales mainly from Belgium, but European by nature. It’s an incredibly exciting time to be enjoying and exploring beer, and it is incredibly important for you to be challenged, satisfied and feel the value from a higher beer drinking experience.

As a promise, we will never stop exploring, and sharing all that excites our palette. That’s our mission.

Tap List



Nourishment

Food plays so many parts in our life. It sustains, excites, frightens, inspires… it brings us to the table, creates dialogue, forges relationships and binds memories like a literary masterpiece. As carefully crafted words make great poetry, we are thusly devoted to the ingredients and approach that make our dishes resonate with the palette.

Working closely with independent organic farmers and other purveyors of artisan ingredients, we go the distance in offering incredible food to our community. We don’t stop with delicious, we’re about making every plate count and the value of our guest’s experience. Every time you leave our table, our goal is that you feel nourished, respected, revitalized and inspired to bring that energy to the next part of your afternoon or evening. Let’s eat!
