This Brewery is located in Downtown Sacramento not far from the Capital. I have been here before and really like this brewery. They have good food, a nice atmosphere, they have outdoor seating. They sell beer on site in bottles snd They offer cases of beer for a really fair price. The food menu is pub grub salads appetizers...etc. The food quality is good and the service is good and fairly fast. I have tried all the beers and they are good. Today I only tried the IPA which is very good, it's got a good hop character but enough malt to balance. I could definately drink a few of these. I'll be back through here next time I come thru Sac as it's really worth the stop. They have Logo Pint glasses and coasters.....

Rubicon Brewery Company is often crowded and busy you feel lucky to get a seat with their limited seating. Once inside they brew great beers and provide a chance to sample one or two guest beers.However, I have been disappointed seeing only three or four beers on tap because of their high demand..Rubicon Food is okay ( I'll stick with the clam chowder and the fish and chips) service is lacking . Just remember call ahead and see what beer they have on tap

Rubicon occupies an old store front on a fairly quiet, tree-lined street, right near downtown. Parts of the (what looks to be) original brickwork are visible inside as well as modern brick to match. The ceiling is tall. The floors are covered by large tiles in the bar area and with indoor/outdoor carpeting elsewhere. Large storefront windows line the front wall, giving a lot of light to the place. The bar area is on the right and an area of tables with light wooden chairs is on the left and extends to the front windows. Towards the back on the left, you can see the brewery behind some windows in a corrugated metal wall. Thereโ€™s also a good-sized outdoor seating area on the wide sidewalk in front.

The wooden bar is lined with stools and has corrugated metal underneath and an unusual brick foot rest. The bar back consists of the beer chalkboard, a couple glass brick windows, and more corrugated metal. The lighting fixtures in the bar area have green lampshades and are suspended from the ceiling by intriguing aluminum tubes.

The beer selection is good - seven Rubicon beers, two guest beers, and another Rubicon brew on cask were available on our visit. The cask IPA was special.

We had a fairly good burger but mostly the food looked like basic brewpub fare (potato chips served with ketchup seemed very popular).

Rubicon is a friendly neighborhood pub that brews some really nice beer. There is a fair size bar with a separate counter for additional seating. An L shaped table area is adjacent to the tank room and there is additional table seating on the front patio.
When I visited the taps included 5 house brews plus 2 guest brews (Black Diamond and Marin BC) and 2 ciders. I enjoyed both the Monkey Knife Fight (Pale Ale) and the house Stout. The menu is typical pub grub including a good selection of appetizers, salads and sandwiches. The portions are large and prices are reasonable plus they serve breakfast on weekends. There is parking on the street and a small lot out back.
