“Very nice beer selection”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Didn't try the food, but enjoyed several beers from a very good list of beers that they had available on draft. And bartenders were friendly.

“Good beer menu and pub food ”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

Love the beer menu and outdoor seating. Typical pub food on the menu, but done right. Service was good but nothing special.

“Great beer menu, excellent selections.”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Really nice place to grab a beer and nachos with the team. The beer menu is not huge, but has some excellent choices available. Outdoor seating is nice, especially after being on the East Coast with all the cold weather. An enjoyable place.

“Great Beer and Decent Food”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

I originally planned on going to Handles but changed my plan to Hopyard after I heard somewhere else in town that Hopyard had an Almanac sour on tap. I do think Hopyard had a slightly better beer selection but the food was merely decent, not bad in any way but pretty unexciting and uninspired. Service was friendly but a little absentminded. If I was just getting a beer I’d definitely come back but for dinner I might just have to suck it up and go somewhere else that doesn’t have quite as good of a beer selection.

“EXCELLENT PLACE TO GRAB A BEER”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

If you are stuck in Pleasanton this is the place to go. It has an impressive selection of beers. It is loud and full of life. If beer and noise is not for you then The Hopyard is not the place.
