Various locations across the countryTop
What you always wanted as a kid, video games and beer. D and B's is not your
ordinary average run-of-the-mill arcade, this is the mother load of arcades.
Over 3,000 square feet of gaming excitement with 2 bars, one in the arcade area
and one in a more subdude adults only area. Great beer, great food, and a place
to let the young 'uns run wild.
Fountain Valley, CATop
A great little neighborhood Irish pub. Three pool tables, a dart machine, and
live music on the weekends. The menu consists mainly of sanwiches. But if it's
a freindly atmosphere with cold beer your looking for, you've found it.
GOAT HILL TAVERN,
Costa Mesa, CA
The first of the infinite tap taverns. Well over one hundred beers on tap, from
the mundane to the sublime. Everything under one roof, from table-top suffle
board to linked-up virtual reality racing. This place is a grown-up kids dream
BIERSCH BREWERY, Various Locations
Gordon Biersch offers many great beers as well
as great food to acompany them. Food ranges from pizzas to filet mignon. Bright
and airy, offering live music at most locations as well as a kids menu and Sunday
HARP INN, Costa
A fine Irish pub. One of the best outside of County Kilarney. If its a nice
black and tan your looking for, 'the Harp' is the place. Sit back with a pint
of Guinness and listen to the soul searing sounds of irish folk, or rock out
to the newest music.
BEACH BEER COMPANY, HB, CATop
Overlooking Main Street, HB Beer Co is one of the best local brew pubs around.
Not your avearge brew pub, most of the place is outside to enjoy the beautiful
California sunshine and the even more beautiful California women. At two blocks
from the ocean this place is a little pricey, but they have good food, great
beer, and amazing scenery.
STRAUSS, Various Locations Throughout
Karl Strauss offers over 2 dozen different hand-crafted,
premium brews, everything from Karl Strauss Light to Red Trolley Ale and my favorite
Blacks Beach Extra Dark. The menu offres everything from Crab Cake Starters to
Bar-B-Qued ribs as well as steaks and seafood. Karl Strauss also sells their beer
in bottles and can be found at many local pubs.
THE NATIONAL SPORTS BAR,
Various Locations across the country
Probably the premier sports bar in the nation (thus the name). Layouts can very
as well as the on tap brews, but two things that are constant is the great food
and good looking waitresses. You might want to meet the boys here to catch the
game of the week, but I suggest leaving the missus at home so you don't get
BEACH BREWING COMPANY,
Newport Beach, CATop
One of the best local breweries around Southern Cal. Located in the historic
Cannery Village, NB Brew Co offers great outside seating and world-class beers.
Some of their beers include, Newport Beach Blonde, Pelican Pale Ale, John Wayne
Imperial Stout, The Duke Dark and my personal favorite The Wedge Weizen. Check
out their web site or stop by to enjoy a pint.
BREWING COMPANY, Laguna Beach, CA
OBC is a true trendsetter not only in their brewery
asthetics but in the food they serve as well. The rather muted stylings of this
brewery make it a nice comfortable, quiet place to dine and enjoy world class
beers. Cuisine consists mainly of Mediterranean and Italian fare. The brews
are a wide array, everything from Red Sunshine Ale to my favorite Scot's Scotch.
Watch out for the kick if you order the Scotch Ale as it delivers a powerful
THE PUMP ROOM,
Home of the PUMP ROOM GALS! If your looking for ice cold beer and hot waitresses
this is the spot for you. Definitely not the place to take your wife or girlfreind.
A great little corner BIKINI Bar. No food, other than the sandwiches at happy
hour. Several diversions (other than the bar-maid) include dart machines, video
games and of course pool tables.
The Rathzkellar is located in Old World, a quaint
little european styled shopping and dining district located in Huntington Beach. They offer several German beers as well as a few of the top selling
American beers. The best time to visit is during Oktoberfest although I suggest
getting there early in the evening if you want a place to sit. Food consists of
german fare such as Bratwurst and veal. If you are looking for a place to give
you the feel of traditional German Oktoberfest this is it. Plenty of traditional
German music and drinking games like "pass the coaster".
Fountain Valley, CA
One of, if not, the premier IRISH pubs in Orange County. Over a dozen beers
on tap and virtually everything else in a bottle. This is one place that knows
how to pour a pint of Guinness. Freindly, helpful staff, you'll leave here feeling
like you've made freinds. Excellent menu with everything from Irish stew to
Prime Rib and Lobster. If your in the mood for something different try the Austrailian
Surf and Turf (Lamb chops and Lobster tail).
The newest and biggest sports bar in Longwood, FL
14 - 32" monitors and 4 - 60" Big screen TV's and not a bad view of any TV in the house.
They also have the COLDEST beer in town. Bottles are always kept on ice in their 10' x 4' Beer tub.
Guinness on tap along with several other drafts.
Live music Thursdays - Saturdays. Promotions with FREE giveaways from distributors.

TERRIFIC PACIFIC BREWERY,
Pacific Beach, CA
"BEER, so much more than
just a breakfast drink."
Terrific Pacific is a great little place located
half a block from the beach in Pacific Beach. They have a very good selection
of brewed on-site beers as well as a tasty menu, consisting of everything from
steaks and seafood to burgers and appetizers. A great spot to soak up some of
that typical laid back California beach attitude.
THE WILD IRISH ROSE,
New owners have done an incredible job. Great Food and Beer selection
at reasonable prices. The menu at The Rose seems to be pretty good with everything from tradional Sheppards Pie to Shrimp Scaampi and what would a good Irish pub be without Guiness on tap. Live Entertainment Friday thru Sunday. Always a good
If you want a beer this is the place. With over 300 beers on tap and many more
in the bottle, not to mention yard tall glasses (though I prefer the half-yard),
this is the beer drinkers paradise.
