Notes

Visited: January 14, 1996

Opened: 1994

Annual Production: 3,000 bbl

Contributor: Siegfried Binge

Pretty standard Gordon Biersch format, with fantastic island specialties from the kitchen. Nice big place, right by the passenger ship docks. A controlling interest in the company was sold to a Las Vegas casino in November 1995...the new team opened Barley's Casino and Brewing in Henderson NV in early 1996.

      Golden, brilliant. Low but OK carbonation. Grainy aroma. Smooth, malty, not quite as sweet as, say, Palo Alto's. St.Louis Blues vs. New York Rangers on ESPN...first hockey I've seen in months!
