Stopped here after Legoland and was impressed by the number of house beers and including a whole page of limited beers including a sour, barrel aged imperial stouts, etc. Busy, but we did hit it after Legoland closed and the service was acceptable. The under cooked my daughter’s steak (bloody rare), and quickly comp’ed her meal - so kudos for handling that quick and efficiently.

Staff was nice, beer was good, food was good, but nothing was good enough to make me come back. Burgers and fries were tasty, but not at the level to compete with surrounding venues. Same with the beer...certainly not bad but can’t compete with the many breweries in the area. The advantage to this place is that it is in a great location for those working in the area, is nicer than Pizza Port in terms of menu and ambiance and lack of screaming children...and it is essentially a restaurant first and brewpub second. So it caters to just about anyone whether or not they are interested in beer. But as a RateBeer place review, it can safely be tucked into the scroll past file.
Great family-friendly place on a hill overlooking Carlsbad and the coast. Could be a perfect way to end a busy day with the kiddos at nearby Legoland. Good variety of Strauss beers on tap. I didnt note any guest taps, but the server let us sample whatever.
Stopped in once with my brother and a friend on the way back from AleSmith.
I felt bad because all we wanted to do was sample all the beers but they didnt have a flight option. So they gave us a sample of everything expecting us to buy beer and food afterwards. We didnt so I left a few dollars as a "tip" and headed out.
Service was very friendly, there were about 10 house beers on, and it’s in a beautiful area. A bit out of the way actually but still nice.
Not really a must in terms of beer stops in the general area but if you happen to be going that way you might as well stop in and try some Tower 10 or one of the experimental ones.

A very big brewpub and restaurant, located in an industrie area. It looks nice inside. There is a large bar were they serve their own beers. It was nice to be their and enjoy their beers.
