The Alley is a Craft Beer and Boutique Wine bar located just outside Yosemite National Park in the historic town of Mariposa, CA. We feature 12 rotating draught beers, and a long ever-changing selection of California wine from small producers. Our passion is to bring you the best of what we have sampled, so please ask us our advise...most likely we will give it to you anyhow! Open Monday-Saturday. CHEERS!

We stopped by this boutique bar on the way back to our room after dinner. It has a great atmosphere and a good selection of craft beers and wines. Well worth a stop in for a couple of drinks.
