The Alley is a Craft Beer and Boutique Wine bar located just outside Yosemite National Park in the historic town of Mariposa, CA.

Our passion is to bring you the best of what we have sampled, so please ask us our advise...most likely we will give it to you anyhow! Open Monday-Saturday. CHEERS!

This place is awesome. It's absolutely beautiful. Their selection of craft beer was phenomenal. They were also very friendly. There is no place I would have rather spent my afternoon grabbing beers. Awesome!

This seems to be the local hang out place. A dozen beers on tap, wines by the glass, great atmosphere and expert advice on selection of drinks. We enjoyed the back garden, very peaceful

One of our favorite places in Mariposa. Great beer selection (and hard apple cider). Very friendly and welcoming, patio in back. Would like to attend one of their music events and probably will in the future. Also recommend the pretzel with cheese sauce.

We visited twice while we were staying in Mariposa. One night there was a band playing in the garden bar which was great fun. We did have some pretzels and a pizza, only small criticism is we'd have loved greater food selection
