Good place to grab a beer or two. Nice located in Auburn old town. They have some really good beer there. Have not tasted the food.

I had a business meeting lunch during the week. The service was great. They even offer a 30 minute lunch deal, if you are in a hurry. We were in no hurry, so took our time and enjoyed our lunch. The salads are really great...More

Drop in on a Tuesday and get really good street tacos for $2 and even better chicken or pork enchiladas for $3. It's crowded but worth it

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!
