The beers here (about 5) are all ales and we prefer lagers. We tried two different beers and they were OK. It is pretty small and there is no food. We like more choices in beers and food with our beer. This place does have a solid niche for people that are looking to only drink local ales while sitting... More

After being told we had to wait 2 hours for the Coors brewery tour, we dropped out of line and headed for Golden City Brewery, based on online reviews. No lines, no waiting, friendly folks and great beer! Got the sampler, so tried them all!

We stopped by Golden City Brewery on our way to visit a friend in Golden City. The outdoor area was crowded so we knew that it must be good. We all enjoyed our beer. So glad we found this brewery!

We had originally wanted to go to the Coors Brewery, however, we didn't know that they closed at 4pm on Mondays. Luckily though, we found the next closest brewery, (Golden City Brewery), and were truly amazed. The beers they have on draft there are by far one of a kind. I really enjoyed the brown ale, where as my girlfriend... More

We stopped here because it was recommended to us by a local. It was very busy and there was only one person manning both of the drink order windows. They have an inside and an outside window. In addition to taking orders and pouring the drinks she was also making pretzels and such. This made for a long wait at... More

Beer was solid, but I didn't like the attitude I was getting off the staff. I work in the craft brewing space sometimes, and I get turned off by the snobbery that sometimes comes from brewers. Craft beer should be an inclusive experience--it's what makes it such an attractive alternative to wine--and that was not my experience here. Also found... More

We had been traveling all day and didn't want to get back in the car so we went over to this place, 'bout a half block from where we were staying. There was a food truck out side , I think it was Island BBQ , so we were able to get a BBQ sandwich too. The Stout was great!... More

This small brewery was here long before the current brew pub craze. The beer is very good and the atmosphere is very laid back. It is dog friendly and also serves wine. The food trucks are very good and it is nice to support one of the first micro-brew pubs that has been around a long time.

My second visit to this brewery was just as fun as the first. The staff is friendly. The happy hour brews were excellent. The food was limited, but inexpensive and tasty. The choice of inside or outside seating is great, with a fair amount of shade on the patio. I look forward to returning on our next trip to the... More
