Me? I need beer and sausages. There is really nothing to compare to a warm evening on the open air part of the pub with a tall Shanghai Red Ale and Lil Hoot's Sausage Sampler. Oh mama!
This is authentic neighborhood pub filled with a great mix of folks. The music isn't too loud, nor are the patrons, but the place is never the same all the time. Sometimes there's a live band, sometimes it's a bunch of guys at the bar watching the game. Sometimes it a nice dinner in the evening with the family. And there are always different brews on the blackboard. If you can get a James Brown, get it.
Parking is a bit tough to get and you might have to hike past a derelict or two on your way, but it's worth it. See, this is a classic no BS kind of bar. It's the kind that people from the Northeast don't believe exist on the West Coast, but you'll find men and women of all ages in this joint. I've overheard conversations with dockworkers, software people, tatoo artists and first responders. This is not a pick up joint, well, it is when the rock bands come through. You gotta love it.
If I remember correctly, they've got some old pinball machines in the back. There's something you don't see every day. The theme is nautical slash British brewpub, and every time I go there I notice something different. Bring some pals and live it up.
