If Iím ever driving out east on the I-8, and Iím not going rock climbing, chances are that Iím driving to this place. One of my favorites breweries to visit in all of southern California. Very quaint little placed situated near the heart of Alpine. You get a totally cozy feeling walking into this place, which isnít much bigger than your standard apartment. Just a few tanks and barrels with equipment stashed in between. Maybe not your best-organized brewery, but I like it that way! Tiny tasting bar and Iíve never had a problem with service. Sean is a really friendly guy and shares info about brewing. Pure Hoppiness, Exponential and Nelson are damn tasty right from the source! Seasonals and rarities occasionally on tap. Why not stop at Liarís right after? Great little place.

Small crowded place with a bit of dive feel. Friendly staff. About 15 taps as well as a food menu. A small outside sitting area out back too. The beers are worth the drive. The brewery is next door to the bar where you can get bottles to go.

Cosy, small place, not the most elegant crowd when I visited. Good selection of own beers. Note the nicest crowd when i was there.

I was astonished as to how small both the pub and brewery really were. This place is SMALL!! Great service, lots of beers on tap and the chicken wings were awesome. A great stop east of SD.

Spent a Sunday afternoon here a few months back watching the US/Germany World Cup match. I spent probably 3 hours here and very much enjoyed the company of the staff...not to mention the great beers and wonderful food. I agree with the reviewer who says about 4 of their beers are great and the rest average to unexceptional...but those that are...combined with the dťcor and location...make for a must visit when you find yourself with a half free day or more while visiting SD. My only real complaint is that the bar stools (round diner seats without backs actually) are very uncomfortable after about an hour at the max. Note that the brewery itself is not open on Sundays...only the adjacent restaurant. There is a great patio/beer garden out back when temperatures allow. This place is a must visit...worth the drive from SD!

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.

An 8 seat wooden bar with a mix of 5 tables 3 boothes inside, pls some outdoor seating. The tap room is about 30 feet away but supposedly the same beers are avail in both locations. Good pub food. Loud. Flights available as are 8, 10 and 16 oz pours.

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.
