“What a Gem!”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

In Etna, there aren't too many options for eating during the winter, however, what they do have available is not disappointing! Etna Brewery has a varied menu to please all appetites (being vegan, we had menu options that worked for us!), clean, and a courteous staff, and the prices were fair. The inside dining area is small, so reservations even on a Thursday night is recommended. Outdoor dining is available but during Feb, might be a little too chilly to eat outside.

The beer, however, is absolutely great! After walking to our motel after a great dinner and 3 beers, we returned the next day to buy some bottles of beer for when we returned home! The IPA and Kappler Stout are worth checking out!

“Great Place”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We have been here twice now and had different beers, wine and food each time. The food, beer, and wine are all priced fairly and taste great. The staff has always been friendly. The scenery nice and has a great outdoor area with heaters for when it gets chilly out. This last visit I had there IPA which is my favorite type of beer and it was a smooth tasting beer with just the right amount of hops. We will continue to come back.

“Great beer, friendly staff”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We found this place by chance, and I was really pleased we did. While we didn't eat there we sampled a few ales and had a good chat with the two servers about the brewery and its merchandise..

During the course of my Californian trip I sampled over 30 different ales, and Etna's Classic Gold topped my list of Pale Ales while its Phoenix Red scored highly in the Amber Ales category. My wife really liked Rustlers Revenge but disliked intensely the berry-flavoured Blonde ale.

Etna has a good range of merchandise all featuring its Eagle logo. We bought a glass which survived the trip back to England but the brewery had sold-out its stock of large T-shirts. Maybe next time.

“Lucky Etna to have a micro brewery in town, and serving food!”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Good setting, especially outdoor area, is refreshing. The brews are very good! The "kids" serving are friendly and go out of their way to inform and serve. Food is fine and prices are fair. Great place to lunch.

“just a nice place. So much better than greasy Bob"s And the waitresses all seem to have teeth..”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

I have never seen one of the sweet waitresses at the Etna Brewery treat a customer poorly. I tip these SWEETIES the best i can afford. The waitresses @ BOB's are nasty especialy the one called "TERRY" saw her spit on a lady's plate.
