Visited March 23, 2013.
I found their website a few months back but forgot about them since they weren’t open yet and I don’t pass through Paso that often. Just heard on Thursday that they were now open so this was a last minute addition to the itinerary. Glad I went here since the facility is really nice. Absolutely beautiful. Outside are some picnic tables and large pond and fountain. The backdrops are green rolling hills. Inside is a nice stone bar and some windows where the bartenders can pass drinks through. The building itself is huge, a bit large for a 17 bbl system but in the other wing they have barrels, a bottling line, a number of pallets of bottles, and a large cold box. These guys are definitely gearing up to do some serious production.
The beer itself is sadly not as nice as the facility but it wasn’t overly offensive either. Just like with Paso Robles Brewing / Pour House I’ll give it another try to see if they get their process down a bit better. The pale ale was probably my favorite but the IPA wasn’t bad. Didn’t care for the wit at all and the same goes for the “wheat beer”. They also sell lots of merchandise so you can get a “tulip” glass which is really an English pint glass shape but a little smaller.
Will go back again just to sit outside and try the new beers.

Not too far from Firestone and not too far off the freeway. It was kind of difficult to find this place at night since there are zero street lights once you turn off of the main road parallel to the highway. Smallish parking lot but a huge brewery facility. It was dark, so I couldn’t get the full effect of some of the outdoor scenery, but what I could see was really nice. Plenty of seats open at the bar and they had seven beers available (normally 8 taps). Very friendly service, too. The beers were decent on average with a couple being fairly enjoyable. Hard to see these guys competing too much with Firestone a few minutes away, but really a nice place.

While researching the breweries in California we discovered this gem in Paso Robles. The small brewery is located in a business park. They do a good job of making you feel you are in a special place. The bar had large windows that opened to the yard with grass and a rock setting with flowing water. Picnic tables and chairs were available in the grassy area. There was music at 3 PM on Sunday. Ginna was our bartender. The beers were good to average, and I purchased a Bomber for the road of the IPA.
