Firehouse Brewery – East Palo Alto

Firehouse Brewery in East Palo Alto is a large sports bar and grill that is decorated with fireman’s helmets and suits, and bills themselves as a “neighborhood sports brewery”. Their house brews are often rotating, but their staples seem to be Hops on Rye, Blonde Bombshell, Firehouse IPA, and One Tun Imperial Stout.

Firehouse Brewery – East Palo Alto – Bottom Line

Firehouse Brewery East Palo Alto is not a brewery, it is a satellite brewpub for the their Sunnyvale location, and is more or less a sports bar in a strip mall, with very little focus on their house beers. They have a full bar and the normal selection of cheap light beer that you would expect from a sports bar. Their is an abundance of large screen televisions throughout the location, of which a small portion actually worked, which is sad on an NFL game day.

The service at Firehouse’s East Palo Alto location is terrible. It often felt like we were bothering the servers, which were huddled around the bar complaining about their boss from the Sunnyvale location. It really felt like the local management at this place did not care, as tables were not cleared, their patio was closed, and their house beer list was held on the wall with scotch tape and was falling down. All of this made sense as the few people that were actually in the place ( I am at this point refusing to call it a brewery) were pretty ghetto and frightening. There were a couple people at the bar, one of which had a large knife just hanging out of his back pocket, which was odd considering that he looked like Eminem’s long lost brother.

The house beers at Firehouse Brewery are pretty average to begin with, but with all of the issues at this Firehouse Brewery location, we cannot recommend that you go here, and if you do go here, don’t go at night and don’t take your family.
