Nice selection of beer. It's a little hoity-toity for a bar - you have to talk to a hostess to get a table for example. And its been very crowded since it opened, presumably that will become less of a concern as time goes by.

Try the strawberry beer! I know it sounds odd but it is delicious and oh-so-good on a warm evening. Have been here twice now. One time we sat at the bar and tried various flights. The staff was friendly and knowledgable about the various beers. The second time we ate here with friends. The wait time was LONG and they don't take reservations for parties of 4. We were very happy with our food once we sat down to eat - fresh and tasty and has a "homemade" feel. The facility is LOUD and needs something to help dampen the noise. All in all a great Mountain View addition!

The servers don't know much about the beers they serve. The beer is not all that interesting, and overpriced at around $8 for a .333 liter glass of beer one can get in a full size bottle at Bev Mo for half the price. Also the place is too loud to hold a conversation, or hear the televisions, and service is SLOW! It took them 30 mins to get us our first round, and just a long to get our bill. Also this place doesn't make it's own beer. All in all, it's not a true beer garden, but an overpriced waste of time!

Not a fan of this one, but my DH likes the dim sum
