Innovation Brew Works is an award-winning, learn-by-doing brewery and brewpub combining craft beer with tasty, casual cuisine. All of Innovation Brew Works’ beers are crafted from barley grown at the Cal Poly-owned Spadra Ranch and cleverly named after local, well-known figures. Current offerings on tap include the dark, malty Bronco Brown and the light-bodied, citrus-tinged Green and Gold, and guests wanting to learn more about the student’s beer-making process can take a brewery tour. Team its beers with a range of signature or personalized, craft-your-own pizzas, fresh sandwiches and gourmet salads.
Donahoo’s Golden Chicken is one of Pomona’s favorite hole-in-the-wall take-out joints and boasts a long history to boot, dating back over 60 years. Easily recognizable by the giant rooster sign perched on its rooftop, Donahoo’s Golden Chicken offers guests a choice between its legendary fried chicken, chicken tenders, liver or gizzards, best enjoyed with a homemade roll and Donahoo’s signature sides of coleslaw, macaroni salad, potato salad, mashed potatoes with gravy and green salad.
