12PM-9PM

After a long day of dealing with people trying to park at crowded overlooks and making left turns into busy traffic, we wouldn’t blame you if you wanted a frosty beer. This spot has a rotating variety of taps you can sample before you decide on a pour—on our last visit, we loved the Minesweeper IPA and Double Howzit Punch sour ale, both from Alvarado Street Brewing. Besides their beer selection, they have a large selection of nachos, wings, and sandwiches options like chicken bánh mì, cheesesteaks with onions and peppers, and hot reubens. Grab a beer and a sandwich and sit at a communal table in their outdoor beer garden—they have heaters in case it gets chilly.
