Does your dough have eggs in it?

No. Never


Can we fit 30 in your back Annex room for a party?
No, legal capacity is 12.  We work to appropriately and safely accommodate special groups.


What is the charge for the backroom Annex?

No charge. Check it, book it, party on.


Can my band play at Creekside?

No. We are not a live music venue and the room is too "acoustically bright" for bands and solo musicians.

Yes.

16 months.


Where do you store all  your beer?

Our state-of-the art beer delivery system pumps 40 products 50 feet (from our 20,000 pint, 28 degree storage cooler) through Glycol chilled trunk lines pushed by CO2 and Nitrogen. Behind the scenes, large tanks of 800 PSI of liquid CO2 is converted to vapor CO2 while Creekside's "GreenAir" system extracts 100% pure Nitrogen out of the ambient air (like the CO2 "scrubbers" in Apollo 13...but we have better rockets), so basically we're making our own inert beer gas here on site and reducing our carbon footprint. We then use specific blends of CO2 to Nitrogen combination for each beer, each set at the optimum gas pressure, insuring every beer, wine and chilled beverage has the four factors in perfect sync to ultimately pour the perfect brewery-fresh pint without any waste or foam: Temperature, Pressure, Gas Blend and Quality Product. In short, we serve beer (basically water and some hop, malt and grain stuff) and it's really pretty cool and we spent a lot of money and custom design to bring you Marin's best craft beer experience on tap. Beauty, eh.
