TomS the brewpub reviews are much appreciated.
I should add re: Mission that, while I didn't prefer the amber a LOT of people were drinking it so it may be that it's just not to my taste. None of the beers were bad, and if I had been in a hoppy mood I might have been happier with the IPA and double IPA. It's also worth mentioning that the place is unfinished. They have no refrigeration so the beer was a bit warm and they were icing kegs before putting them on. I really liked the place, very friendly staff too.
When you get to the area, I recommend finding a copy of the West Coaster SD
, a local free beer rag. The last page has a map listing breweries, restaurants, and good beer bars. We went to a few of the places and had great experiences everywhere. It's been an excellent guide so far.
