I live in h.b. and frequent the Beer. co. I usually go there for happy hour because it is good and not too busy. The seared ahi and ceviche are awesome especially at the happyhour price. I prefer the Brickshot Red, nice and smooth and goes down easy. They usually have about 5-6 beers to choose from that they brew, sometimes more depending on the season. And usually a good variety. As far as the service goes.... i mostly sit at the bar. It is slow and the bartenders always hang out and chat with me. And when i do sit on the patio the servers have always been pleasant and efficient. Most of the staff have been there a long time so that it nice and they treat their ""regulars"" well. I have been a customer for about 5 years now and will continue as long as the beer, food and service continue to please me. My advice is to go mid week in the afternoon when you can just chill out and enjoy a nice beer and great ocean view off the patio.
Pros: service, beer
