I stopped by the brewery today and Wolfgang the brewer graciously gave a couple of samples to my wife and me right from the lager tanks.
the style. I found this quite drinkable but I was looking for more depth and crispness in this beer.
Serving type: on-tap

This place is awesome for so many reasons; location, ambiance, and quality. Location is amazing, a quick 30 minute drive from San Diego, you are quickly transported to a small mountain town. Makes me nostalgic for small time Texas. The building is in a small strip mall with one end being the restaurant the other the bottle shop. The diner transports you back 50 years to a small town western diner. Vinyl is everywhere, Johnny Cash on the radio, and old signs. I could sit here all day and visit all the time and see new things. The selection is the only issue here as its top heavy and bottom light. The top beers are best in the world, the rest are mediocre. They offer flights of 4 and 6 beers. They had Nelson, Duet, Pure Hoppiness and Bad Boy on tap. DAMN! Amazing set of top 4 beers. Nelson fresh was one of the best beers Iíve ever had. The rest of the beers were lacking, their regular line up of Alpine Ale, Red, Card, Mcilheny, and Wily need to go away. Why make these when you have some of the best ipas in the world? The servers were helpful but not overly nice or knowledgable. For the setting and the beer this is a worldwide must visit. Come to San Diego to just visit here.

Stopped in here yesterday on the road back to Arizona, probably my most anticipated stop in the greater San Diego area. Atmosphere was pretty dead when we arrived thanks to it being just after they opened but once some more people showed up it got much better. Quality was quite high, my food and beer were great and the space was well furnished in their signature style. Service was awesome, she spent as much time as she could talking to us and I never had to wait for anything. Selection was a little picked over, they had all of their typical beers on but nothing overly rare. Was really hoping to at least try one of the tap only hoppy beers but it just wasnít meant to be I guess. I went with the brisket sandwich which was excellent. Prices were a touch high on the food but I have no problem paying for quality so it wasnít a huge deal. Overall an awesome little pub with some world class beers to choose from. Glad I could finally check it out, and I hope I can return in the future.

Nice little place tucked away in the hills. Lots of taps and bottles for sale. Flights offered and accepted. Food looked good but I did not eat. Small but a nice outdoor area to drink in. Friendly people and excellent beer.

Small place with some good BBQ food and great Alpine Beers. The to-go beers are a great deal. A nice stop on the way to San Diego.

Long lineup out the door for both the bottle shop and bar / restaurant sections when we visited on a Saturday. But it wasnít 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.

(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 íní 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.
