Serving up “West Coast Pub Fare”, everyone's favorite uncle Karl has just opened his first new brewery resto in a decade, fully loaded with a seven-barrel system and other fancy beer thingamajigs that'll be churning out a new specialty brew each month. Don't worry about not getting a seat, 'cause they've got room for 150 inside, plus 100 more on a massive patio with a fire pit, and even if it does somehow fill up, the 360-degree concrete bar will fill you a half-gallon growler to
take to a dark alleyway while you wait go!

The 4S Ranch location of uncle Karl's resto empire is just as breathtaking (or breath-inducing, depending on what you inhale) as the rest, but this one's got a microbrewery, which means it trumps just about... any other place within a 10-mile radius. Take a beer tour, enjoy what they call "West Coast pub fare", and revel under the illuminated sign, "Make Beer, Not War."
