A nicely kept brewery that was a little difficult to find at dusk, but not too hard. The tasting room is somewhat small but there is room to slide out back and grab some grub from a local food truck. The staff stayed busy and that made getting beers ordered take a bit.

Visited this afternoon on a tour of some of the north SD breweries. Was not disappointed. Fantastic beers on tap - thought of the Speedway Stout varieties were out. Helpful and friendly staff. Very good visit.

Stopped by a few years back to pick up BA speedway bottles. Warehouse setting with barrels everywhere. Solid tsp list and food trucks.

He Alesmith for Speedway Grand Prix. The line up was insane. That being said, I imagine itís a bit more tame on a typical day. Friendly staff. Nice selection of house brews. Worth the stop if your in SD.

Not totally easy to find, but the GPS took us there. Well designed tasting room, not very crowded when we visited. This was maybe the place with the highest priority to visit during our stay in the San Diego area. With that in mind, the beer selection was a bit of a disappointment. I was very happy to drink Vietnamese Coffee and a collab with Cigar City. My expectations was maybe too high but I was hoping for even more. Decent prices and we did come back the second time. Definately a must visit, but donít hope for too many rare beers.

Happened to visit with 2 casks available, Decadence and BBA Speedway. A little hard to find, but once you are there, great service, and well worth the stop. Wish we would have had more time, but were trying to visit several other places.

With the exception of Green Flash, AleSmith was probably the best brewery I visited during my recent SD craftbeer tour (8 breweries & 4 beer bars in 2 1/2 days!). This place is classy and well designed. I really like the look and feel of it...the signage, back-bar setups, and the tap setups themselves. The beer selection was great. I especially loved the beer dedicated to Tony Gwynn..."394 Pale Ale"...bought the shirt too...classy act on AleSmithís part! I highly recommend a visit here to compliment any SD craftbeer tour.
