Bayview bluster

I'm a noted devotee of the well-heeled, new kid on the block, Cannery Row Brewing Co. Full Story

Glad to see others noticed the lack of local beer-a HUGE oversight on CCBC's part! We stopped in on opening night (expecting a crowd & slow service) and thought they'd done a nice job making the space their own, but had a hard time understanding only one working cash register....we will be sure to head over to Bayview to support our local brewery AND the deli!

I see a lot of folks taking jabs at CRBC and am left scratching my head. Where are all these local brews they speak of? Ale Works in Marina is the only local commercial brew available unless I am missing something. The place has been open less than a month and is working out a few bugs- I say cut em a little slack. They took a big risk in this economy to bring something unique to the community and are taking it on the chin from some disgruntled other restaurants. I for one am a little put off by Bay view Deli's tact- to stoop to calling CRBC trendy johnny come lately's is actually kinda lame. In his view he has a great place, awesome. But why make your point on someone elses back? The guys at CRBC aren't going around calling anyone out or making any "my dad can beat up your dad claims". They are just trying to offer another choice in our local culinary offerings- which I actually appreciate. I think who benefits best is all of the local diners as competition is always healthy and keeps everyone on their toes. So Bayview Deli keep on trucking and serving some great BBQ and Local beers just back off the throttle a little with your boastfulness it can actually turn some potential guests off.

Monterey Cookhouse is in North Monterey, not New Monterey. Of course, if you continue along North Fremont St to where it becomes Fremont Blvd., you enter East Monterey (now known as Seaside.)

My son is a cook at CRBC. I am grateful that they brought jobs to the community. My letter was written with tongue firmly in cheek .I guess you didn't get that. P.S. sometimes you just gotta blow your own horn.
