    Pit Row was pretty good. A little too bitter towards the end, but worth a purchase if anyone is on the fence.

    I thought it was fine. They make much better beer.

    Single Cone was very good this last release. Pie Hard was underwhelming in my book. And I like their kettle sours.

    They say it Contains No Juice, but I'm not too sure about this.

    The new YOE restaurant in Carmel is now open for any of yall roadtriping down this way. Had the food last week at the aoft opening and dont pass up the kale and miso appetizer. God damn. Also a familiar bbq spot will be opening in the crossroads shopping center for those that frequent Sante and eat nearby.

    Alvarado's food leaves something to be desired, but got damn the beer is good. Lighthouse Kolsch is killer.

    The burger is pretty good. Did you try Monterey Beer? Can’t wait for 12 packs.

    My burger was crispy and well done. o_O The tilapia tacos were just ok. Same with the queso and the mushroom pizza (crust was too floppy). It's Bay Area prices, but disappointing on quality. I love the setup, and clearly the crowd/wait disagree with my opinion, so w/e. I'll still go back. Can't believe I waited this long for my first visit.

    I didn't try Monterey Beer, but they had cans of it in the fridge. I'm loading up on the way out.

    Anyone here been to the new Yeast of Eden brewery and restaurant? I’m thinking of going when I’m up next week. Hoping the food is good over there.

    I just cracked open a can of Motor Oil 3 & it’s way off. No discernible maple flavor, & it’s heading towards sour. Anybody else experienced this? I had a can the day it came out & I loved it, & it was still tasting great on draft at the Toronado recently.
