What a great idea...Tasty beers (handcrafted) and a great setting for the whole family. Doggies too!! We were there for a pre-wedding party and it was super. It is a very casual setting with plenty of room to goof around playing "texas horseshoes" (with bean bags), disc golf (we could only find 4 of the 9 holes - a little better signage would be helpful as the course gets a little more play), and great big lawn and picnic area.

We stop here regularly when we're in the area. Great beer, friendly owners and lots of nice, rustic outdoor seating under the pines. It can get crowded on the weekends!

We found this during a weekend in Graeagle. We showed up around 5:45p, sat in the Adirondack chairs, did a sampler, and enjoyed the air. We were ready to leave around 7:30....long before they were going to kick us out!

Kids were playing on slack lines, families were BBQing, dogs were happily roaming about. While all kids are welcome, a van of teenagers did show up while we were there and that was odd. This is for families and adults...not a place for teens to just hang. It IS like a bar.

The patio is gorgeous, the grass area is to die for. The tall trees keep it shady so bring a sweater.

There's no food, but you're encouraged to bring your own!

The beer is good! Try it all!

They accept credit cards and cash!

They sell the most beautiful bells--we got one as a thank you for my mom who kept the baby during our trip.

We're already planning a day-trip where we grab food in Graeagle and head to the Lair for the day. Perfection.

This place just FEELS good!

Can be tricky to see the sign--from Portola, if you get to the Graeagle turnoff, you've gone too far. Keep an eye out on the north side of the road for an A-frame sign with a "spy". Turn.

As the website says "if the rope's down, come on up!"

We were very pleasantly surprised by this place. Given the fairly remote location I would have happily given these guys a pass if the beer had been just ok but it was very good! They would easily compete with other craft breweries in more populous areas. Playing disc golf on their course and sitting on their lawn was a fun way to spend an afternoon. We were actually so impressed by the whole operation that we went back the next day with more friends. It's a great addition to the area and we look forward to visiting again during our annual Lakes Basin trip!

We come up here every time we go to Graeagle. Very nice, knowledgeable owners, Great beer, nice variety. Can get cold up there, although the fire pit is a very nice touch. Definitely worth the drive up there.
