I loved the ambiance here and the draft selection was good. I wish they had parabola on tap though.

This is my kind of place. We drove up from Santa Barbara to check it out. From the outside, it looks like a big warehouse with a house attached to the front - kind of odd. Once you walk in the front door, though, there is a well-lit bar area with several TVs (playoff football happened to be on). There is a small shop selling FW branded shirts and beers etc, and beyond that a large restaurant area with a high ceiling and views into the brewery. Very cool atmosphere. Service was very friendly, and the food was awesome. We brought small kids and they were also welcomed and happy. There were 12-16 FW beers on tap; I was a little disappointed nothing special, like Merkin or an anniversary beer, was available. Overall a really great place for any craft beer lover.

Latest stop was the day after the XVII release party, been here many times, figured it was time. Have sat in the restaurant and bar, prefer the bar for food and drinks. Wookey Jack and Taproom IPA this time, along with excellent calimari and the Trio of fries. Service was very good too. Love the interior with the bottling line going round and round, and several tvís for viewing. The main room of the restaurant is a bit to spacious for me, making it on the noisy side...might as well sit in the bar.

We visited the brewery the first time in 2006 and once more late 2011. They have great barrel aged ales. The history of Firestone is quite amazing, nice pictures in the brewery are showing you some of the heritage. Very nice merchandising as well.

I always enjoy a stop here on my way through the area. Taps are usually the standard line-up with perpaps a seaonal like Parabola or Abacus if it was released recently. The fish tacos are overpriced but really quite good. The highlight for me is always having a pint of Union Jack on tap.

Stopped in on a Thursday evening on the drive back from San Diego. Dining room is large and was a bit noisy, even with plenty of open tables. Must be ridiculously loud when packed. Seated immediately. Service was quick and our server was very friendly. Our food arrived surprisingly quickly, was pretty tasty and were good sized portions. Didnít realize the "Taproom" IPA and brown we had are the renamed Nectar Ales. Not bad regardless. Also had Velvet Merkin and Oaktoberfest. Glad we finally gave the place a shot.

Our last stop on our drive to SD. I was mainly stopping to check out the barrel works but we decided to stay for dinner so I got to check out both. Atmosphere in the taproom was good. It was packed with people but it still had a good vide. Quality across the board was quite good. Lots of great touches helped to make it feel welcoming but donít detract from the overall atmosphere. Service was solid, I never had to wait for a beer. Selection was solid. They had all of the staples on as expected. Food was pretty good. I got a burger and it was cooked how as I asked and tasted good. Prices on the beers were fine, food was definitely overpriced on nearly all of the dishes. Overall a really nice showpiece for a great brewery. Glad we could stop and check it out.

The exterior is a little rustic and inviting. Theyíve just added an outdoor patio dining area. The inside has two distinct sections: an informal brewpub area and a more elegant (certainly not formal dining, however) and dimly lit dining area. A decent variety of food items are available, but they are a little too pricey. Service ranges from average to condescending. In fact, the last time I was there, one of the Firestone boys was one booth away, but the waitress was still passive-aggressive and not remarkably helpful. They do have a healthy array of FW beers on tap. Parabola and Union Jack to name two the last time I was there. Donít go for the service. Go because you respect the magnificent FW beers and enjoy the fun events FW coordinates/sponsors.
