First visited in August 2010 with morbidobesitycantsail.

Definitely out of the way, which makes me wonder if this is the reason it’s taken them this long to get this big. The place is on a little 2 lane road in what looks like an old western kind of town. The town is only on one side of the road and a couple the buildings have the raised wooden sidewalk/walkway. I half expected to see a hitching post out front. Not surprisingly the bathroom is it’s own little building/hut out back, an outhouse if you will.

Inside the pub is quite relaxing and enjoyable. Lots of taps to choose from, very good food, and all the hops you can handle. Even if you don’t like any of their other beers you can’t help but love things like Exponential Hoppiness, Pure Hoppiness, OBriens IPA, Hoppy Birthday, Nelson, etc. And Great is pretty good when fresh. They occasionally put on a keg of the 05 version but it’s turning to cardboard at this point.

The bartenders were very nice and helpful in answering questions, providing samples, and even making suggestions.

Would go back again if brewery hopping in that region.

The one and only...Out in the middle of nowhere, but they do make some damn fine beers. The BBQ in the pub is excellent, and of course the IPAs are world class. Service can be a bit grumpy, but I find the waitresses in the pub are quite nice. The guys and girl (not sure if she still works there?) in the tasting room can be a bit surly.

Nice diner/pub atmosphere. Tiny, so don’t expect to get a seat if there are alot of you. Service was decent, but as most places in SoCal, efficient not friendly. Full of locals and geeks, which you can tell causes a bit of tension. They have 1 rotating tap. Food is good BBQ but a bit pricey for the serving size. Although a bit overrated, it is worth checking out, especially if there is something special on tap.

This quaint restaurant is tucked neatly outside of San Diego in a small town. Facing the building, the pub is on the left and the brewery the right with a book store in between. The service was pretty good, especially for our waitresses’ second day. We enjoyed the fried green beans along with a couple of pints each.

Popped by the little brewery then went to the tavern up the road for a sampler. It’s obviously California -- they had like 7 IPAs of their own on tap. I tried 6, 5 of which were above average, just 1 was so-so. The service was great, and they’re dog friendly! Brewery #725.

(Visited 10/2013): Alpine Beer Company is about a 45 minute drive east of San Diego in Alpine on Alpine Avenue, off of I-8. There is a parking lot in front of the plaza, which consists of the brewpub, a book store, then Alpine again (the brewery side where merchandise and to-go beer can be purchased).

The brewpub side looks like a mom ’n’ pop diner, with table and booth seating past the entrance and a bar along the left side. There is a small cooler behind the bar with bottles, and a board listing the beers on draught. Kitschy beer signs on the walls. The brewery side has a walk up counter and a white board listing the beers that can be taken home in growlers. Brewing equipment is visible on that side too.

Alpine has around 15 of their beers on tap. On my visit this included Nelson, Duet, Pure Hoppiness, Willy and some seasonals like Mandarin Nectar, Koffee Sutra and Willy Vanilly. Sample flights are offered. The beers were really good for the most part, with a couple mediocre ones mixed in.

Service on a Friday lunch hour was good both at the bar and on the brewery side. The staff is knowledgeable about the beers and were attentive during my visit.

Food at Alpine goes with the look, in that there are diner classics like burgers, sandwiches etc. My buffalo chicken sandwich was spicy and good.

All in all this place is well worth the drive from San Diego and I would definitely visit again.

Long lineup out the door for both the bottle shop and bar / restaurant sections when we visited on a Saturday. But it wasn’t too long a wait to at least grab beers and sit on the deck out back. Most of their regular beers are only okay, while their hoppier beers and limited releases are very well-crafted. Prices are normal and the service was very good. Definitely a must stop when in the San Diego area - perhaps try to visit during the week to avoid lineups.

I have wanted to come here for a long time, and finally got my chance. Pretty busy on a Tuesday night, but I found a spot at the bar. When I was here they had 12 unique beers on tap, with a few that had tapped out prior to my visit. I sampled them all, washed down with some surprisingly good food - smoked wings and tacos. Service is pretty good, ambiance is what it is, but it is hard to argue with the quality of fresh Alpine IPA’s.

Two different places are combined in the database, the brewpub next door and the actual brewery where you can buy bottles and growlers to go as well as t-shirts, stickers, etc. The drive is about 25 minutes from San Diego along beautiful scenery so don’t let its strange location deter you from visiting. Opening hours are awesome for the brewpub. They had only house beers on tap, and a lot of them. 15-16 with many one-offs and non-bottled varieties. Higher quality, most famous for their IPAs but the pumpkin porter was phenomenal. Food is very good, asked the server to make a recommendation and she said the veggies wrap modified a little bit from what was on the menu and it rocked: cucumber, balsamic, mushroom, feta in crispy burrito wrap cut in half. Stewed spicy green beans were a hit, country style. The whole diner is very Southwestern almost Wild West like- tacky diner decoration, saloon looking exterior, almost exclusively locals eating and drinking here and regulars at that. All on first name basis with the staff. I was allowed to just walk out without paying or leaving collateral to get bottles next door at the actual brewery about 35 feet away. Came back, had another beer and paid. Very courteous, trusting, knowledgeable staff. Extremely relaxed and homely feel. Prices were not "cheap" but not out of whack either. I’m glad to have visited and will be back in the future. A fun sidetrip from San Diego.
