If you are looking for a great place to go with plenty of delicious beer, I highly recommend Harry's Hofbrau in San Jose. The bartenders are super nice and super knowledgable about beer. The bar has "tap takeover" nights with great breweries, and on normals nights have a great selection (and wide varieties) of beer. The crowd is mellow, and there is a well-priced buffet. It's funky, fun, and laid back. If you haven't been, go.
