The Warehouse in Port Costa

Warning:
You will have to choose from over 300 beers.
You may feel uncomfortable surrounded by rev-ving Harleys and their riders.
You may get lost in this former brothel now antique-stuffed cave of a bar.
You may run screaming when you see a Polar Bear.
You have to drive to Port Costa.
If none of this scares you, we're in for a good time listening to live music (starts at 1:00pm), while watching the ships sail by on the Carquinez Straits.

BEER
[masked] varieties of beers from around the world. If they aren't busy (doubtful) you might get to go into the walk-in and pick your own. Huge list of beers on tap too.

FOOD
The Warehouse has a cafe that serves simple lunch food 12-4. Sometimes a BBQ going outside too.

BRING
Lawn chair (giant parking lot that ends right at the patio, when it's crowded I've seen folks just set up their own chairs and enjoy the show)
Jacket (it's August, but we are right on the waterfront so it could get breezy)
Hat (it's August)

    I went and the Warehouse was exactly as Diana had described/warned, but it wasn't my kind of scene. The place itset was cool... interesting.. historical... but had very few beers on draft, had no shade, had no view (atmosphere was terrible) so I left. I also felt like the road to/from was a law enforcement DWI trap (on a given afternoon/evening). Thanks for the invite and sorry for leaving so soon after arriving, but... just not my idea of a cool place to relax for the afternoon.

    Oh yeah, jumpsuit girl. Lucky for me I didn't get turned down as she played for the other team so I left PC with my fragile male ego intact.

    With great weather, a bit of live jazz, tons of beer choices the venue was super. The group was fun and easy going and very welcoming for any of us new. Definitely a group to tip a few with.

    It was all great (except the spillage) - drinkin' in the sun with fin people, does it get any better than that?

    I am always leary about going to meetups far from home. Cindy described this meetup perfectly. It was even BETTER than she described. I had a great ride over on a beautiful, the temp was hot, not at all what I expected on the water and the Warehouse is a wonderful place for a meetup or just meeting. SO glad I went. Thank you Cindy!

    August 11, 2012

    • David

      Hi Anne, is your ride offer still available? I sent you a message with my contact info.

    I don't know for sure about dogs Kay. Don't remember seeing any, but it is right next to a trail head so I bet you wouldn't be the first. Give them a call, open at noon I think.

      Kay, if you call, can you post the answer here? Thanks!
