Large space in a small brewery,surrounded by barrels. Jam packed at noon on a Saturday, but still had fast, efficient, friendly staff, plus Dawn the Beer Fairy. What else can you ask for?

Been here many times since they opened. Despite having lots of room the place is usually packed. Lots of taps and usually a few interesting/experimental beers. They also have plenty of bottles for onsite or take away. Service can be hit and miss.

warehouse ambiance. divided tap list between Lost Abbey and Port Brewing offerings, with most of the standard lineup taking up to two-dozen or so taps. Only a few small batch beers available during my visit. Small sample sizes available of everything. Call me underwhelmed, but I donít find myself in love with Lost Abbey beer so my appreciation of their taproom is strongly tied to that. Still, a fun place and worthy of a stop when in Southern California, no doubt. Wish I was into their beer, though.

The bar is a large L-shaped one with the tap list on a chalk board straight ahead with all the prices and available growler fills/bottles on it. They also have printed lists of their "reserve" bottles such as the Veritas beers, Isabelle Proximus, Duck Duck Gooze, Angelís Share, etc. This is probably the coolest thing about the "new" Lost Abbey. The brewing equipment and barrels for aging their beers are all over the place and provide a cool atmosphere. This is especially true if youíre like me and like to nose around and see what beer is aging in what barrels. The service is still much the same and often receives mixed reviews, but I have never had a problem here, in fact, Iíve always had awesome experiences here. They do occasionally have food during special events, but as a rule, they still donít. Be sure to eat before you come, because itís easy to be here and drink a lot before you finally bow out.

Visited on Friday 18/04/14. Located in an industrial unit not far from a few other breweries. 20+ taps, left hand side of the board is Lost Abbey, right hand side Port brewing. The place was pretty packed but the service was very good and prompt. About 15/20 bottles to go but most of the interesting stuff had sold out. T-shirts/merchandise also available. Lots of cool artwork on the walls to the left, Lost Abbey satanic themed pictures. No food available which was a shame as something always helps, even if itís just potato chips or jerky. Solid no frills taproom, outstanding value at $1 per taster!

A big where house with the brewing, barrels and a huge bar. Pretty basic, no chairs and food is by invited food truck. Since they donít manage the food, I donít think it is fair to rate. Samples and draft are cheap, but unlike all the patrons I canít drink the cool aide. This isnít as great as the hype.

A fully functioning brewery in a large industrial complex just off 78 (Hops Hwy). The bar service was good and handled the growing crowd well. There were a few new items on tap alongside their year-round offerings. The bottle selection seemed to have just been obliterated so there was very little left from which to choose.

(Visited 10/2013): Lost Abbey is located in San Marcos in a business park off Rancheros Drive. Like many breweries (Stone, Avery, Two Brothers) you start to wonder if you are in the right place when you approach. There is a decent sized lot in front of the building.

The entrance basically opens directly into the brewery. Walking up to the taproom area one can get a full view of the brewing equipment and barrel room. The tasting area is standing only with a bar and a few barrels converted to tables. There is a cooler behind the bar with bottles to go, and a large board above listing the beers on tap. Lost Abbey related art on one of the walls too.

There are over 20 taps in the tasting room, comprised of both Lost Abbey and Port beers. Several of the more common beers like Devotion, 10 Commandments and Red Barn. Some seasonals and less common brews like Mayan Apocalypse and Port Board Meeting. The beers are available in multiple serving sizes.

Service at the bar on a relatively busy weekday afternoon was pretty good. The bartender was knowledgeable about the beers and helped with to-go and merchandise orders.

We did not have any food on the visit, and I donít believe they serve any.

Overall this is a really good spot to visit in the San Diego area, and is not too far from Stone to boot.

Stopped in to pick up my tracks and have a few tasters. Kind of an industrial space, but they make great use of it with a large bar and seating area. 4oz tasters are $1 (!!), and they have a bunch of stuff on tap. Friendly staff as well. When I was there they were out of a ton of bottles, but they had Tracks 4-13 for onside consumption at $20 each, which was pretty cool.

I was expecting something a little more elaborate for a tasting room, but this is very minimalist. Itís just a small room with a bar. No seats, no outside beer consumption allowed, no nothing other than standing and being sociable while drinking a superior brew. Tons of Port/Lost Abbey is available on tap and in bottle. Pretty cool place.
