In our efforts to promote environmental ways to get to the pub, we’ve worked with the Fairfax Town Council to convert one of our front parking spaces into a bike corral.   Bike on down and check it out! We have also implemented a bike lock program. Just ask at the bar to borrow a lock during your stay, so you can enjoy a cold beverage knowing that your bike is safe and secure locked up out front!  Please send any feedback on the new corral to

January was such a great beer month here.  Not only did we have our best Barrel Aged Beer Month yet, but we also released 4 amazing beers in one day to kick off SF Beer Week, including the Compulsory Triple IPA, which won a gold medal in the Bistro Double IPA fest in 2014.  This year we were named “Best in the Bay” at the Diving Dog Brewhouse’s annual SF Beer Week event.»
