Went to the 2nd Anniversary party. Great ambiance with oak barrels stacked 15í high everywhere you look, all labeled with the contents. Oh, how I wanted to punch a hole in one and go to town. Probably would have been asked to leave..... They had several great beers on tap, and while Iím sure they donít normally serve food, they did for the party and it was an awesome mexican buffet. Loved the Holy Water as well. Heard Tomme soaked his feet in it to bless it.

The Lost Abbey is in a warehouse, but the decorations are brewing vats and kegs of beer aging. What could be better? Not yuppie or over commercialized....perfect. Service from the girl behind the bar was great. Free samples if you buy beer, which we did!

Lots of fun, in a warehouse but still a cool place. There wasnít as much beer available to purchase or try as other breweries I have been to but still a cool place. Would go back.

Been to the brewery a few time and have had nothing but good times. The crew is funny as hell, the service is great, the beers are awesome. The barrel room is my favorite part of the brewery. Spotted Angels Share, Cuvee de Tomme, and others aging. Canít wait to go there again!

Well now, I have to admit it isnít the Ritz Carlton but is it a brewery afterall for christs sake. I got the help package the Shark Bite, lookat at tons on barrels full of experimental brews and future brews, was able to purchase Loat Abbey Brews, met Tomme Arthur, has Tomme get bottles of Cable Car AND Veritas 003 out and pour them for a select few, listen to Tomme discuss the Art of Creating.
The waitress was all over us with super efficiency and a great attitude.
Thanks again for a great experience.

Was here for the Angel Share release. They had plenty of bagels and orange water for everyone who was standing in line. Had very good service and plenty of friendly people. They also had a very good selection. Worth a visit.

Went for the Carnevale release on Groundhogís Day 08. A standard industrial complex brewery like AleSmith, but they do a great job using their barrels to decorate the place rather than merely populate it. Went again for the opening of the tasting bar and I like the whole back area they have now. Good place for events. Props on always having food!

Only time Iím really here is for the special releases, go figure. Sure, the tasting sessions are nice and every now and then someone might crack open a rarity, but thereís not too much to see here. Impressive barrel room with lots of brews sitting in oak and the rest of the Abbey is the equipment left over from Stoneís previous ownership. Nicely constructed tasting bar with a few taps of Port Brewingís year-round beers and seasonals. Friendly service and easy to access, but the place gets rampant on barrel-aged release days. Show up early.

Cool place - over 100 barrels currently aging. Other than that - just an open warehouse. Have a nice tasting bar, it just depends what they are serving at the time. Tomme is usually around to chat with makes it worth a visit - but I would recommend Pizza Port Carlsbad over this...

Visited for the Lost Abbey Barrel Tasting event 08/25/07. I showed up, waited in line for a while outside the brewery, moved about inside for at least a half an hour and didnít realize this was Stoneís first brewery until I overhead someone mention it. How could I not have noticed? The little gift shop area and bathroom area is the same. The brewing equipment seemed to be pretty much in the same place. What was differs is the tremendous amount of oak barrels filled with beer. Also Stone had this little draft beer dispensing stand up against the front wall. Now Lost Abbey has a big long bar backed up against the cold storage with maybe a dozen places to sit. Pretty cool.
