One of the best breweries you could ever hope to visit. Youíre hanging out in a room full of giant barrels so it lacks for ambiance. But the tap list constantly encompasses some of the best American beers in a wide variety of Belgian styles as well as some interesting lagers, IPAs, and strong ales. Then youíve got a crazy bottle list with some of the best sours ever made in America. The prices for those beers are extremely reasonable, considering what it costs in trade or on the free market to try something like Veritas or Isabelle Proximus. A must visit.

Went on a Saturday night with Raith. Holy cow. This place is amazing. Lots of really fantastic taps. Great atmosphere. Food truck outside. Great bottles too. Really great place. They have 5oz pours for $1. Canít beat that. Fantastic. A few taps were out, though, but overall fantastic.

I was a little taken back by the fact that the brewery is in an industrial location. I sort of suspected something along the lines of Stone. That being said, a fantastic tap selection, nice bottle list, and a friendly staff. Super stoked I finally made it here.

Located in an industrial area, like many other tasting rooms in this area. The brewery is right next to the tasting room. Good selection on taps and bottles, but maybe I was hoping for more rare beers. Around 20 beers on tap during my visit. It was a bit of a set back that most of the bottles I wanted was not available. Will visit again.

Industrial area, but a nice and clean tasting room. Friendly staff, great tap selection and even more bottles to go. Easy to spend a few hours there just working through the tap list.

Stopped here on a recent craftbeer tour of Greater San Diego. With only 2 1/2 days available to me I had to chose my stops wisely...this place didnít disappoint! There were at least 20 beers available. Being a hop head I concentrated more on the Port Brewing side then the Lost Abby...plus with 20 beers and a number with high ABV...what choice did I have...lol! This is a fun place to hangout and drink great craftbeers. The place is really just taps in a section of the brewery...but it doesnít matter...the staff is great and the beers exceptional.

Loved the gritty atmosphere of a working warehouse brewery, nothing to separate you from the equipment but a rope. Not pretending to be something it isnít. They serve their own stuff and thatís it. They keep the music down so you can chat. Loved the $1 tasters. No place to sit and no food inside so not a date destination, but a great place to sip beer.

Like other reviewers have said, this is a brewery set in a warehouse in an industrial park. Deco and interior is spartan to say the least. Beer selection is basic Lost abbey and port brewing. I give it higher marks however because itís one of the few breweries I visited in SD where you can engage in beer talk with the staff and they are super friendly and genuinely into beer.

This is a one time must stop and wow all my buddies are right This is a warehouse brewery with a name for the gods. I was expecting something MORE. Bigger and much more impressive. Great beer just a junky look.

Tap room in a wharehouse. With great beers on tap. The barrel room is impressive but not massive. And the brewery tour was surprisingly one of the best I ever took, (entertaining, engaging, and full of information that was new to me). Itís also nice to be in the brewery that Stone started out in and then compare it to where they are now up the road.
