Our second stop on our beer trip! This place seemed more like a college type of bar. We got the sampler which consisted of the Alpine gold, Cascade Amber, Ironwood Dark, New world Wheat, Amber light, Oatmeal stout(which was kinda hoppy), Fruit (raspberry(which was our fav. it wasn't too sweet and overpowering with the ras)) and the seasonal(this was supposed to be an IPA, there was something off about it though, I felt like it had a christmasy taste to it, hard to describe floral or christmas wreath aroma and taste, I asked the bartender about it, at first she looked at me like I was crazy but then told us the last beer they ran through there was their Holiday Ale, I was getting the taste of that mixed with the IPA, which actually made it better sine I'm not an IPA fan). Overall the beers were alright, nothing special, we have had better but we have also had a lot worse.

We did see a fruit fly here too. (This was one of the things we noticed on our beer trip around the bay.

I tried the sampler flight and was not impressed. This was the first bre stops on my beer trek to the Bay area. The beer tended towards the hoppy end of the spectrum but were not spectacular. The place seemed to be more about the food and atmosphere. The offering on 2008/07/09 was a wheat, amber, alpine gold, amber light, passion fruit wheat and an IPA. The Passion fruit was my favorite out of the bunch but did not have a lot of flavor.

***Update November 2011***

I’m updating my original review because there has been a marked improvement in brew selection at Tied House since the opening of their production facility (Hermitage Brewing Co).
There are now 24 taps that provided a 12 brew selection when I last visited. Six of the taps offered their traditional range of styles plus a seasonal (Mull Tide). The other six brews on tap included a selection of Hermitage strong brews ranging from 6 to 12 ABV. On my visit, I enjoyed the Maltopia (Scotch Ale) and the Ale of the 2 Tun (Double Stout), both above 8 ABV. In addition, there several select strong brews available in bottles and a different cask brew is tapped on First Firkin Friday every month.
There are a lot of flat screen TVs and a large projection screen for special events. There are also some booths, away from the bar, that are particularly good for families. A nice side patio area is always available for outside seating and there is a large “beer garden” patio that is great for groups.
The menu is very good. It includes many burgers (including wild game options), unique sandwiches and sausage items but they also have great salads and offer many upscale entrées. They are constantly adding different menu selections. Parking is free, either on the street or in the public lot across the street. Also, it is just a short walk from Mountain View CalTrain station.
