Small tasting room with a nice open air front/entrance. Some barrels around for tables in the tasting room, but not much room at the actual bar. A nice space out back on the patio area where you can get a cool view and the brewing equipment. The best beer was their double IPA, the others were decent, but nothing really outstanding. Prices werenít necessarily cheap, but not terribly offensive either.

I canít believe it has taken me so long to get to this brewery. Although I frequent SB, for whatever reason I have never stopped in. The place is tiny, so thankfully I was there on a Tuesday at 2:30, because I can see this place becoming uncomfortable stat. The beertender was a little curt, but honestly the beers were so good I let her "you are lucky to be here" attitude slide. Culture is worthy of the hype they have been getting and my growler will be filled often.

been 3x, and will be back. Like the place, the beer, the brewer. Cover styles well and theyíre willing to go outside the box.

We were driving through Solana Beach and saw Culture Brewing Company and decided to stop by. The place is a very very small space. Iíd hesitate to call it a storefront, as it doesnít look at all like a traditional storefront. Itís almost a roof between two building with a retractable front and back. Food truck was in the back. Beers were decent and certainly refreshing during the "heat wave" that the area was suffering from. The only knock I have against the place were the number of dog owners who filled the place up with their animals. I understand the place is dog-friendly, but it felt entirely inappropriate to have dogs anywhere but near the front of the building.

Cool place, with a great vibe. Very open place so itís great for warmer months. Also near Belly Up so the perfect place to stop by before a show. Staff is friendly and helpful with selections. A good selection but didnít have exactly what I was looking for. I will stop by again, the place is good but not my favorite in Solana Beach.

Visited on a Monday evening. This is a nice place near PP Solana Beach. Much different vibe though as it was much quieter and I guess you could say laid back even though there was a lot of people here too. Quite a few business people and couples. Very small bar with a few tables in front and a porch area in back with some spots on the railing to set your beer, but not many seats. They could use more seating here to make things more comfortable. They had a good number of beers on tap, but not many interesting ones. Mostly standard styles like blonde, brown, IPA... they were all ok, but nothing Iíd go out of my way for. Theyíre definitely going for more of a classy, upscale image compared to a lot of other local breweries. The service was ok. Worth a stop.

Nice surprise - did not know this was so close to PP. 3 real good sours on tap with a bunch of IPAs, firkin and others - nice selection. Interesting looking place inside. Busy (there on a Friday night), but no issues finding a spot to camp out and had great service.

Visited on Friday 14th November í14 just after mid day. Located around a 5 minute walk from the station and PP SB. The place is a modern open facilty. The beers are laid out clearly on a blackboard to the left of the bar. There is nowhere to sit, just a few wooden barrels to stand around with your glass. Service was prompt and friendly, although it was only moderately busy but a few people came and went during our hour there. 11 beers on tap, all available in 3oz tasters at a cost of $1.25 - $2, most main styles represented. Beers were solid if unspectacular, my ratings averaged out at 3.27. Not a go to destination but if in SB well worth popping by.

A small microbrewery 1 block of Hwy 101. No seating except a few beer kegs. 10 beers on tap, with good variety and 3 nitro taps. Try the outstanding coffee stout if available.

> A trendy, extremely popular venue marks Solana Beachís second beer destination. However, the beer still needs work.

>> Culture is one block from Pizza Port Solana Beach within the outdoor mall or strip, if you can call it, for the town. Parking is difficult in a way so best park near Pizza Port and walk here than vice-versa. Inside is a small, clean, modern set up with friendly staff and a gigantic tap list of house only beers. Styles were exciting like barrel aged saisons, vanilla imperial stout, low abv coffee stouts. Beer quality was shaky in the low 3s with some standouts. Beers all available in 3oz tasters given in beautiful large glasses that make aroma evaluation fantastic. Outdoor patio "seating" is limited and cramped. Dogs allowed turns this place a bit chaotic at times. As of now, their beers need work, but the vision, popularity, and enthusiasm is all there. Will revisit in time.

Love this place. Parking can be a challenge. Great location. Easy walk to Pizza Port or beach. Great for a "tailgate" before a show at the Belly Up. Beer is good, especially the IIPA. Fun place to hang out.
