    Happy hour at Brew It Up! is a regular event for me and our staff at work, mainly for the beer. You cannot beat BIU for the selection and quality of fresh beer. The appetizers are fairly standard, except for the onion rings and kettle chips with reduced balsalmic vinegar and blue cheese. The rest of the menu is normal pub grub. Enjoy!

        Too bad there....No space in the bar?

        You might want to head over to The Rubicon. (Capital and 19yh, next to The waterboy0. Great beers and the best ten buck meals in Sac IMO.. their hot wings are really good adn the waffle fries are great too...

          I love The Rubicon. I can't get enough of their IPA's. I think The Rubicon is the only brewery in America that has good, cheap, and easy pub food.

            The Rubicon certainly knows their place for sure. All of their food is house made too. The salads are great, the burgers awesome and the specials are usually raging....Great outdoor area too....

              Hmmmm... i couldnt really find anything on the food menu I though I would like. Where is the hot spot in Sac or Folsom? I really want to go somewhere with a boisterous atmosphere and where the crowd is mid 20s....

          They should have offered something to make up for that!

            That happened (sorta) to us once. I called Paragary's Bar and Oven..and made it clear we wanted to dine on their fab patio. She told us what time to get there so we could do that. When we arrived, 3 days later, the patio had been rented for a wedding rehearsal dinner! GRRRR also.

          If you are a beer gal, then I say go for it. They have lots of beers on tap to please everyone.
