This place is in the back of a little industial complex. Doesn’t look great, but the people are friendly. The only times I have been there were for BA releases, so there was a festive atmosphere.

Went here after Stone on a Friday afternoon. They aren’t open for long so check the hours of operation. Friendly service and some solid brews on tap and available for purchase. Very nice people.

Ah the Smithy! Truly a foundry of great beers, tucked away into the industrial park jungle that is most of the Mira Mar area. Their release parties are pretty well organized and service is plentiful, with some great cask selections. I showed up for the Decadence release last fall and it was a nice spot for a session.

I visited early in 2007 on a day when they were technically closed. They were, however, brewing and so Peter allowed me and a friend in. I bought a special aged bottled beer they had (2004 Speedway Stout) and a couple of their regulars, too. I also got a sticker and a T shirt! They let us have some freebie tasters and chatted with us for a few minutes while I watched them brew. I am amazed that some of the best beer I have ever had comes from this fairly small operation. May the hop gods bless them and the malt angels watch over them.

This is by far the best brewery to visit when in San Diego. The place is small and inviting. The people who work there are all very nice and accomodating. The selection is sometimes not that good as far as finding the higher rated stuff, because we locals buy it all! A definite ’must visit’ if you come here.

It’s real sweet. I gave ambiance points because there is nothing between you and the beer, but at the same time it isn’t a place to hang out, which is disappointing. If you treat it like a Mecca rather than a place to kill time you’ll be pleased.

Warehouse scene in industrial park. Nice tasting bar during the correct hours... only been there to pick up some BA releases. Peter was extremely friendly and nice to chat with...worth a visit if you want to see where SD’s finest are brewed!

Quiet operation in an industrial park; spent 4+ hours lined up out back before the BA release party. Merchandise counter set up with reasonably priced stuff (including a pretty sweet growler cooler and bottle openers that, unlike my DFH one, won’t break after two uses). Peter and company were incredibly accomodating and great hosts for the whole affair; friendly, quick service everywhere. Eight beers available on tap at the small bar near the fermenters, including Old Numbskull, Speedway, X, Nautical Nut Brown, and Lil Devil, plus most of their bottled beers were available for sale. Not the kind of place you’d take a date, but great beer and great company.

Just a little bar in the back of the brewery. Small tastings, bottles and growlers. Girl serving was very friendly and helpful. A cool place to checkout if in the area.

Their opening hours are very limited, but this is an interesting place to visit. You will have access to some of the best beers on the planet, and will have a chance to meet the folks who make it. It is also likely that you will strike up a conversation with other visiting beer geeks, both local and from afar. For example the last time I was there a local took me over to another local brewery after we discussed beer for a while.

A great small brewery to visit. You squeeze between a huge brewing kettle and the bar and taste San Diego’s finest beers. The brewers are very helpful giving out excellent home brewing advice. I must go sometime for the tour. I wonder where the barrels are?
