Only time I’m 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 there’s 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 Stone’s previous ownership. Nicely constructed tasting bar with a few taps of Port Brewing’s year-round beers and seasonals. Friendly service and easy to access, but the place gets rampant on barrel-aged release days. Show up early.

After hitting up the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens - Escondido, we decided to check out their old brewery, now housing the Port Brewing / Lost Abbey. This is more like a traditional brewery, housed in a light industrial park. Place was busy, but there was plenty of room to move around. Staff was quick to take our orders. Beer selection wasn’t all that different from the Confessional, which I had been to the night before. About half-and-half split between Lost Abbey and Port Brewing beer, with a few extra "rarer" Lost Abbey beers available. Prints line one wall and it was fun matching up the prints to their respective beers with our friends. Samples were very reasonably priced and the to-go selection was pretty good, though some of the more special ones were sold out by the time we got there.

In an industrial park. Easy to find with lots of lost abbey / port signage outside. The tasting room is fairly sparse with no seating but a long bar and barrels that serve as tables throughout. Decent amount of beer to taste. Service was fast and friendly. Beer was delicious.

Tap room right next to the brewery. A sympathetic place with sympathetic people and cheap Port Brewing / Lost Abbey beers. By cheap, I mean: 4 oz tasters are 1$. Their very rare stuff (Older Viscosity, Framboise de amorosa, House Wild when I was there) is 5$ tasters. They have decorated the place with artwork of their labels. Definitely worth visiting, not much more to say.

Very cool place. Kind of out of the way and was a little difficult for me to find. Really awesome to be able to check out all the barrels and stuff there, very spacious and open place. We visited in September 2014 and we were pretty unlucky because the day we went they were having an issue with plumbing so none of the taps could be used. Staff was friendly though and ended up helping us select a nice bottle. They had a nice selection, we were just unable to drink it. I will visit again.

The setup is a classic American brewery tasting room. That’s what I like. The selection was great but maybe a bit expected. There was really nothing wrong with this place. I was just a little tired.

service here can be a little snarky, but can be great as well. atmosphere is ok...it’s basically a giant garage. but, because the beer is fantastic, the people drinking it always seem to be super happy, which contributes in a positive manner to the atmosphere. Beware last call...

Un local de dégustation comme dans la plupart des brasseries industrielles avec le food truck affairé à l’entrée. La plupart des échantillons sont 1$ et quelques raretés pour 5$ mais après un lancement, la liste se dégarnie rapidement. Je suis vraiment pas impressionné par la gamme régulière de Lost Abbey et ma visite n’a fait que le confirmer. Les produits Port Brewing, par contre, étaient pour la plupart excellent. Ça ne fait pas partie des must pour moi mais ça vaut la peine d’aller faire une saucette au moins. L’ambiance est également pas si mal avec les cuve qui nous regardent de hauts et le flot continue d’assoiffés.

Always a favorite stop when I’m in San Diego. Tables are standing only and the place is always full. Somehow I seem able to find a place at the bar. Bottle selection is as big as the taps. Food trucks are standing by when you get hungry and they do brewery tours too.

This has been one of my go to breweries for years. The location is a warehouse with bar/ tasting room. The beer selection is great. Service is always great no matter how busy they are. Overall one of my favorite warehouse tasting rooms.
