Cellarmaker Brewing Strata Galaxy IPA

6.8% abv - Hazy West Coast IPA
Two of the hardest hitting hops bring the fire in this incredibly fruity IPA. Strata, a limey citrus and tangy weed-like hop teams up perfectly with Galaxy, easily the most vibrant of hops, which seems soaked in pineapple/orange/guava juice. hazy and soft for the most juicy experience

Regular store bought loaf size sandwich, hands down great tasting pastrami! But.....it's not a $20.00 worthy sandwich!! Triple D hyped them up! So in my opinion, Refuge hyped up their price! Loved the experience.....but, one and done!
I am ordering the chopped pastrami salad for a friend, what is the best beer to pair on your to go menu?
Thank you for establishing a take out menu during these times. Look forward to seeing you.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
I'm partial to the Original in San Carlos. Better Atmosphere.
that looks like anawesome brisket!!!!
Do you think you'll ever bring back that fantastic scallop salad you had a few years ago, with mango and avocado and ginger and beurre blanc? That was really unique and very delicious. I've tried to recreate it at home and I can't!
richard mathews we should check this out sometime, it was on diner drivein and dives
We have eaten at the San Carlos location at least 4 times. However, when we last dined there for lunch on Saturday, 16 June, the experience was highly disappointing. The staple pastrami sandwich was, at one time, chuck full of pastrami and large enough to share, has now been reduced in size to barely fill a sparse appetite. The 'mounds of pastrami' that were once the calling card of this place is gone. The pricing of the menu offerings has not been reduced - just the portions. We also noticed that particular Saturday, the many empty tables from 11:45 am til 1:00 pm or so. I think perhaps others have already discovered the disappointment that I am writing about here. We won't be returning.
Any Refuge 10th birthday celebration??
Pastrami at Refuge!
