A wonderful brewery (or is it two?) to visit if you are in the area. Tastes on Angels Share release day were only a buck for pretty much everything - a steal compared to their bottle prices in stores. Atmosphere is just a warehouse with a ton of barrels full of incredible aging beers. A Belgian lovers paradise but also a place for the hop lover and the big beer lover.

Visited on day two of RBSG2008. Wonderful selection of beers. For $10 we sampled all of the Lost Abbey line that they had at the moment. Loaded with barrels of beer. It was a tad hot, but with enough fans, the place cooled down. Great food, though not a regular occurance. The sours certainly cleared out the hangover from the previous night.

Great stop before heading back to Carlsbad for pizza and beer. Tons of barrels stacked up along most walls, friendly (if occasionally inattentive) barstaff, and most standard LA / Port Brewing beers. Tomme was kind enough to open up a rare bottle for us while we were there; otherwise the tap selection was diverse but accessible elsewhere, and we only ended up getting served about half of the beers of a $6 sampler. Whatever, as the people there are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about beer. Worthwhile stop.

Before you read further, they do no serve food. I attended during RBSG in which they prepared and served food for this event only. This is yet another brewery located in an industrial park (old Stone location). The front reception area has bottles and Tshirts for sale. The tap/ tasting area is in the wharehouse, surrounded by lots and lots of barrels. No air conditioning, so be aware of that on hot days. Tomme really rolled out the red carpet for us. For $10, we got to sample a dozen or so very rare beers. For another $10, we had this stellar mexican taco bar with carnitas, chicken, and carne asada along with all the homemade fixins. It was some of the best slow cooked meat I have ever had. Tomme is brewing some great stuff and is cranking out new and interesting beers. Definitely stop by.

Visited during the RBSG ’08. Hot and humid (from all the boils going on, I guess) with no A/C... just the way a brewery should be. No pub food, no menu. Terrific, all you can possibly eat, grilled meats and Mexican fixings... for $10, I think? Oh, also for that same $10, I was able to sample some extremely sick, intense beers! So many wooden barrels lying around, full of stuff I can’t wait to try if I ever get the chance. Great place... sour beer and big beer Mecca!

Placed in an industrial area, not somewhere you would think world class beers would come from. Remember the same building when it was Stone. As soon as we walked into the tasting area we were greeted with samples of Witch’s Wit, now that’s service. Had about 10-15 taps going, very nice, had the 10 commandments. What better ambiance is there than being surrounded by who know’s how many beers being barrel aged in who know’s what kind of barrels, truly mind boggeling, it was beer nirvana.

Might be the only abbey in a warehouse, but it is one hell of a brewery. You know it is going to be a treat when you a greeted by stacks upon stacks of barrels aging delicious beers. They had about 15 beers on tap offering almost all of their normal beers on tap and some other Port brewing beers. Tomme and his staff was kind enough to bring out some amazing cellar selections for the RBSG crowd and put on a delicious taco bar. An amazing experience for sure.

Visited during RBSG 2008. Had an awesome time visiting this brewery. The yhad such an amazing tasting set up for us it was ridiculous. Highlights include Isabelle Proximus, Cable Car, Yellow Bus, and Sinners Blend. Also had some kick ass Mexican food for lunch for us. The ambience was great as you walk amongst the barrels with beer aging, some of which hasnt even been released yet. Tomme is a cool guy, and was awesome for putting on a great show for us. Only negative was the heat for sure.

Barrels, barrels, heat, sweat, great beers, sour beers, long bar with lots of taps. Needs some A/C. Oh yeah, the food they made for us at RBSG really hit the spot.
