Just a bitch to find with limited parking, Uber thank you. Small industrial garage roll up style small brewery. 18 taps of solid SD beers with relax vibe. Table tennis, couch and darts yeah. Cheap flight of 5 brews and glass. Love this place, just hard to find:(

This is located in an industrial area garage like building with a couple of game tables, a couch and a small bar. The server was efficient pouring for all the patrons and you keep a nice glass with your tasting. Pretty good beers with some interesting recipes.

A nice tasting room. Service is good and the place is rather relaxed. Some of the beers are really, good.

Cool digs, everything is brand spanking new, or at least it looks that way. The people working there were really nice. The variety was decent, they had 3 different vintages of their barleywine when I was there and the styles they had were across the board. A little disappointed in the food truck. The food was higher priced and just average, plus their menu was deceiving since they didn’t have some of the stuff.

Slid spot. Very spartan but itmgetsnthe job done. They had aroundn15 beers on tap spanning all variety of style. Pours available in small cups or pints. They offer a flight of five (price varies depending on the beers) that includes a Hess pint glass you get to keep. Beer quality is good. The batman was friendly. I gather they usually have a food truck/ street food vendor set up shop just outside the tap room; on my visit there was a taco stand, and the tacos wee stellar. Hess is less than a mile from AleSmith. Both these places are top drawer so I would advise a visit to each.

Tasting room is small with some tables. Very friendly staff, excellent bers. Could probably get a higher score if they’d switch the plastic cups to glassware.

Very solid set of IPAs and hop forward beers. Very friendly albeit busy staff and volunteers when I went. One of my favorite brewers in San Diego actually.

Easy to find brewery tasting room in a, gasp, strange industrial park. Hugely popular on the weekends with a dedicated local crowd. Symbiotic relationship with various food trucks. Vietnamese when we were there, which was the bomb. Service was quick and friendly. They offer samples of their house beers and there are A LOT. At least 12 when we were there, which is a bit overwhelming. Cheap prices. Main problem is that the tasters all came in tiny PLASTIC CUPS!! Pretty annoying, but then again it is really meant for someone to get a "taste" and then order a bigger pour in a proper glass. Fun place, great vibe. House beer quality was high.

Old school style tasting room. Small bar in an industrial warehouse. Bags of grain stacked around. Great beer. Wish they had different growlers.

I have been impressed that you can brew such a good beer with very rudimentary brew equipment. The beer is really good and the garage ambiente is great. This brewery has a great potential.
