Not the worst beer… but certainly not the best

Review of: Eldo’s Grill & Microbrewery

Read review on Judy’s Book.

The space that now houses Eldo’s was once the Golden Gate Brewery – a decent brewpub that collapsed at the end of the dot-com bubble. Now reinvented as a tex-mex brewpub, Eldo’s has supposedly been getting a good reputation for it’s beer. Let’s clarify things – the only reputation it should have is for mediocrity.

It’s a sad, sad day when I can recommend the corporate brewpub offerings of Gordon Biersch before I can recommend these beers. I struggled to finish a completely pedestrian porter that lacked body, taste and aroma, while my wife combatted an overly carbonated pilsner that tasted nothing like the Czech archetypes from which this style of beer comes from.

At 10:30 on a Saturday, it was dead empty. Tells you something, eh?
