Let me make sure you understand that I, like Mark Twain, am not prone to hyperbole or exaggeration, but... If you drink IPAs, you're a %&^%&%*##-ing idiot if you don't stop here and try the ZZ Hop fresh from the tap. Oh, you're on the way to Tahoe but you don't "have time" to visit - you're a %&^%&%*##-ing idiot!... More

Stopped in here for a quick lunch. Not expecting much more than a typical pub style we had the clam chowder and a burger. The chowder was very good and the burger is the best I've had in Auburn. Really very good.

We had dinner on the patio and thought it hit all the marks: good beer, good food, good service and a big welcome to our dog, Seamus, who was joining us. The manager even brought out strips of bacon for him. They have heaters on the patio so even on a chilly night it's easy to sit outside with the... More

Met our son and wife for a late lunch/early dinner at the Alehouse on a Tuesday afternoon about 3pm. Worked out really well as we found parking (generally a problem in Old Town Auburn during prime-time lunch and dinner hours) and we could get into the brewery/restaurant without a wait. While it was early afternoon, there was a decent crowd... More

Auburn Alehouse provides great service, good food and an aesthetically pleasing environment. My husband and I had lunch here and we didn't have any complaints. My fish and chips were a bit below excellent but the atmosphere was excellent; consequently, we will visit this alehouse when we return to Auburn -- one of our favorite places.

Our waitress impressed us with her extensive knowledge of the intricacies of the various types of beer. We all had flights and although we had our favorites, none were bad. Love the fact that their fish tacos can be made with salmon. The asian lettuce wraps are great!

Description
Brian & Lisa Ford opened Auburn Alehouse Brewery & Restaurant in 2007 in the iconic Shanghai Restaurant, embracing the building's character and colorful history in the heart of Historic Auburn. While enjoying their full bistro menu, patrons can often see Brian & his brewers making world-class beer in small batches, using only the finest malted barley and American-grown hops. With a collection of prestigious awards hanging on the wall it's easy to see why the SacBee recently said Auburn Alehouse is one of the region's premier craft breweries. Favorites include the Gold Digger IPA (CA State Fair Gold Medal Winner), Gold Country Pilsner (GABF Gold Medal Winner), Hop Donkey (GABF Silver Medal Winner) and PU240 IPA! Lunch and Dinner are served every day, while our Brunch menu is served on Saturday and Sunday from 9am-noon. Don't forget we have a dog friendly patio!
