A great friendly bar with some fantastic beer and a good selection of spirits and cocktails. Food was some of the best we ate in CA. Staff were fun, knowledgeable and very helpful. Beers have a bitterness index assigned to each of them which is the first time I have seen this and very useful.

Brewery in Big Bear - one of two I know of. The Red Ant Red Ale is their signature beer and it's really good!

Stopped by at 830 on a Saturday night with two small kids. Live music, good pub food, very family friendly server and pleasant cozy atmosphere. Beer was fresh and great. We felt very welcome and enjoyed ourselves

Stopped by this unique spot to try a few of the brews. Atmosphere was rustic and our waitress was super friendly. Good beers - did not try the food, but what others had looked/smelled good!

We had lunch here after the Alpine Slide. Great bar food. We had a burger, chicken strips and the appitizer combo plate. The place was super busy and workers were great!

We stopped in on a Friday afternoon, just passing through town. It ended up being just what I was hoping. The staff was warm and attentive. The bar is, well, quaint. It's small, lots of wood, and lots of bar signs. There was a guy playing acoustic guitar and singing some classic rock (60s). I loved it.

What does an Aussie do when the recommended pie and cupcake places in Big Bear are closed? He zooms in on the closest pub! We'd noticed this place on our way in, so called in on our way out. It's a really cool and funky pub, no airs and graces, just a few tables, a couple of lounge chairs and... More

This little place serves up some pretty decent beer and passable pub food. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and they had some live music too. Sports on the TV in the corner. Happy staff. A pleasant little joint.

Pros - Great local beer - Cool looking bar inside Cons -Absolutely the worst service One server - brown haired girl - was just shy of openly hostile in dealing with patrons. We were sitting on the patio and ignored completely after asking for help a few times. And not just us, the table next to us was having a... More
