I hope I don't fall asleep while typing on the keyboard tonight. A bit woosey from the last couple of days but stopped by 5 Points Brewing Company this evening for their $4 specials. ($7 Growler refills.)
Located in the Mission Brewery Plaza, that neat brick building complex right off the I-5 Southbound Washington exit (the older FedEx location). Only beers on tap are available and imaginably no kitchen to offer any food so best to imagine as a very casual beer tasting opportunity I'd think.
Pint of choice was the day's Islander I.P.A. Had a very clean fruity flavor note of grapefruit, much like a hefeweizen but without any bitter aftertaste. Super nice.
Again, "atmosphere" here is all relative. I personally found it fantastic, like walking into an older brick and copper semi-secret speakeasy. Accommodations are minimal. Pay for your drink (cards are actually accepted), and you go find yourself a cozy spot to have your beer and chill with friends.
Few pictures taken while trekking out to use the bathroom downstairs...
Really enjoyed the completely unpretentious vibe. Definitely will be back.
