There seems to be a mixed camp with the Alpine Brewpub. One one hand you have people who love the beer and either loved the food, or are at least excited to try something else on the menu. Then you have bitter people named Collen who complain about the ambiance of a brewpub located in the sticks, and shit on it without eating their food. And lets be honest, dinging this place because they have a few attractive women working here (who are all actually very nice and know their shit when it comes to beer) probably says a lot more about the person reviewing it, rather than the establishment itself. For me, it doesnít get much better. The beer is world class, no question about it. I was very impressed with the BBQ. The cook came out and talked to us for a bit (it was a slower time of the day) and told us his story of how he ended up at Alpine, and his theories on BBQ. Some of the best pulled pork and brisket I have had, tons of flavor in the meat, and barely any sauce at all. And all of the sides were great (i noticed last time i was their they started putting mustard in the potato salad, Címon Son! get that mustard outta there). The service is always great, the patrons around you are always friendly and chiming in, and itís always clean (which I care a lot more about than how it was decorated). Oh, and their chipotle ranch sauce, hot damn itís good. I could choke down a bag full of mashed up assholes if it was covered in that stuff.

Visited the 10th February 2015 with a friend - This brewery on the small village of Alpine is really great. Good ambiance this place looks like as a classic dinner. Inside you can eat but you may have to way behind in the garden with a beer. The selection is made with mostly beers from the brewery and there are some guest for a good price. The service is really friendly and the staff will be happy to serve you. The ambiance is really nice, and really good. People really enjoy this place. The food is good and cheap, and you can enjoy specials everyday. This place is really a must to be when you are in San Diego! Enjoy it, itís fun and the beer are really good! IPA and barley wine are awesome!

Visited in mid May. Was extremely happy to talk to the owner. Was able to get Nelson, Duet and growler of Pure Hoppiness plus some souvenirs. Prices were very reasonable. Hope to see them next spring!

Way out in Alpine, but well worth the trip. Nice selection of house beers. Mostly IPAís but with a couple other choices. The BBQ is fan-freakin-tactic. A must. Friendly staff with a warm atmosphere.

Quite different from all the other places we visited in San Diego. Located east of the city, up in the mountains. Looks like a small taverna with mostly locals visiting. Beer list is impressive and the quality is even better. Can easily get crowded since it is rather small, but we have a nice and quiet stay in an early afternoon.

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.
