An easy call; this popular favorite has many locations. Dan Gordon and Dean Biersch founded the institution in Palo Alto in 1988; that it has persisted through boom and bust is proof of the age-old appeal of four ingredients and a German purity law. Gordon Biersch deserves props for its elegance this is a brewpub you can take a date to. It also earns praise for its site-specificity as much as its beer, including the fine retrofitting of the first locale in the old Bijou theater in Palo Alto. The handsome old-world brick patio in San Jose is the ultimate place to have a couple during the end of a hot working day. Now up on the taps: the Octoberfest Fest Bier, a stronger, darker brew to combat the growing crispness of autumn.

The burgers, pastas and steaks are justly famous as adjuncts to the exceptional range of home-brewed beer. The outdoor patio area is open year round. -- Metro Bars & Clubs, June 16, 2010
2007 BEST OF SILICON VALLEY Staff Pick and Reader Survey Winner - First Place, Best Microbrewery
It's probably a stretch to call Gordon Biersch a microbrewery anymore, but this Silicon Valley beer house is something of an institution. How ever you want to classify them these local boys brew good beer. You can get their garlic fries at Costco, right?
