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 it’s 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 don’t 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.

The place is nothing special compared to other tap rooms we’ve visited in the Sates, but can’t be missed if you’re a fan.

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 AleSmith’s part! I highly recommend a visit here to compliment any SD craftbeer tour.

Quite far out of town set in an industrial estate is the infamous Alesmith. Again this was one of my favourite breweries that I was really looking forward to visiting. As I found through my beer travels through the U.S is that in general brewery tap rooms tend to be disappointing.Sure it’s great to see were these great beers come from but most breweries never make much of an effort to make their tap rooms comfortable and welcoming. Alesmiths tap room was quite clean and modern efficient service and a few tables and a few stools despite the large amount of people there. The selection available again was not anything that you can’t find in good bars in San diego. Overall if you are a fan of this brewery you will have to visit!
