Jam packed when we visited on a Friday afternoon. Small inside space, but spillover onto the front lawn. Quick and friendly service despite the throngs. Quick peeks into the brewery through the serving area. Worth a stop for sure.

There is a small tasting bar with 9 taps and a hand pump (which was not in operation). Next to the bar is the cooler with bottles for purchase. The prices on the bottles are quite good, much lower than I generally pay at bottle shops.
The growler and draft prices are fair and I like the fact that they offer a few different sized growlers, although I donít see myself ever purchasing a 1 gallon growler of anything.
The young lady tending the bar was quite nice and talkative, and was very helpful to us and the other patrons.
A cool place to check out, but not necessarily much to do there. The inside is also fairly small, so I would imagine that it can get cramped when they are busy.

I was pretty disappointed with the tap selection- maybe one beer that isnít easily available in bottles. Sculpin was fresh and on cask, but the cask conditioning flopped and the beer was disgusting. However, we waited around for awhile (standing room only Iím afraid), but we were given a personal tour of the brewery and ran through the process quickly, played around with the different hops they had refrigerated, and got to go into where they are distilling their own rum, gin, and whiskey! Not bad.

Visited on a Saturday. Easy street parking in a pretty area. Small, but nice tasting room, with a small window to what looks like a beautiful and large brewery. I sadly wasnít able to go on a tour at the time. They had rum barrel aged Three Sheets on which was nice, and probably the freshest Sculpin I have ever had (AMAZINGLY fresh and vibrant tasting!). Prices were very good. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. A good stop if you are near Alesmith (which is only a mile or two down the road).

Funny location for this place, but good beer and good service. The other BP is better.

This place rocks. Pretty simple brewery, with a cool vibe. Clean and neat inside with a limited amount of space to hang out but that made for a great way to meet and talk to people. Excellent service, even when the place got packed. The beers.... so good, we got to try Sculpin 3 ways, regular, w/ habaneros, and w/ ghost chilies. Great prices for the quality of beer, you can get pints, half pints, tasters and beer to go. Wonderful place, if I lived in San Diego this is the place that I go to a lot.

Stopped here after Alesmith. This is a bigger operation, with patio seating and everything. Still no real food though. Great taplist, including stuff that is not otherwise available, and the staff know what they are doing. Four oz tasters are around $2, which is still a pretty good deal to me.

Visited in 2009. Like the place, typical small US microbrewery. Beers are very good. The guy running the tasting room gave me a very good brewery tour. Was here in 2006 the last time, have to come back soon.

Strange that I was there the same time as Hophead22 and didnít even know it. I was surprised that the place was open almost an hour early and I guess he was why, so thanks to all! I agree totally that this is on my list for San Diego destinations from now on. They seem to try to have BA selections on tap, they will pour you anything, and they are not shy about casks. Bottles are dirt cheap - wonít buy them anywhere else from now on. Also, the two ladies who helped me were both very welcoming and very pretty, so I guess there is something for everyone.
