Happy Friday fellow hounds! A couple of friends and I have managed to procure a day out by ourselves, leaving the wives at home. We're looking for a bar with a good selection of brews, served ice cold and complemented with tasty food. Nothing extravagant, we're simple men with simple needs--we'd all be happy with standard bar food (wings, pizza, potato skins etc.) but we want it to be good. Anything above and beyond that would be icing on the cake. Not looking for anything trendy or a place that you'd take a date, and while I love both the Yardhouse and the Goathill Tavern, I think we're looking for something not quite as big and "OC" as the Yardhouse, yet we don't want a complete dive like the Goathill either. A good Irish pub might do the trick!
Tustin Brewing Company is one place that comes to mind (I've never been--any comments??), but am anxiously awaiting Hound input. Anything in or around Costa Mesa, Tustin, Irvine, Newport is fine. Thanks!
