Sit on a plush couch while sipping on better than expected suds. About a dozen on tap with a couple BA beers and a few different IPAS.

Visited on a Tuesday. Another industrial park brewery, although this one is in a slightly nicer park than most. It looks small from the outside, but inside is a nice sized tasting room to the right and the brewery to the left. Itís much larger than I expected since I havenít seen their beers around much. It was loud inside due to the brewery being in such close proximity to the tasting area. There were a couple TVís with sporting events on which was nice. The service was very friendly and the beer was average. They did have a couple barrel aged beers on when I was there that made it a bit more exciting. Overall, a decent place but somewhat forgettable due to the abundance of riches in this area.

Occasionally there will be a food truck. Strong selection of brews. Nice ambiance and adding outdoor seating! Attentive bar staff.

Large enough tasting room visited around 4pm on Friday 18/04/14 just a few minutes drive from Alesmith. Modern facilty in an industrial unit with around a dozen taps. Fairly quiet when we visited, you could either sit at the bar or on some comfy sofas which is where my wife preferred. Service was prompt and friendly and the beers were pretty good on the whole, largely averageing around 3.5 for me which is pretty decent when you are hitting on 7 or 8 samples. No food available on my visit, not sure whether a food cart comes later, but they did have free popcorn which was a nice touch. I just stuck to tasters, get as many or as few as you like @ $1 or $2. Solid taproom - highly recommended for any tickers roaming the area!

Visited January 19. 2013.

Stopped in on the way to AleSmith to pick up some beers. These guys started off pretty strong with a large system, a very nice tasting room, and some decent beers. Iíll be interested to see how they improve over the months/years but it wasnít a bad start. The Belgian vanilla stout and the session IPA were quite good and the Emboozlement wasnít bad either. Service was efficient. Some of the beers need work but over all theyíre doing alright.

Industrial park exterior hides the classy joint inside. Good beers, if not exciting, nor seemingly growing in number. Nice feel, and helpful (may I say attractive) staff. Clean, typical, and nice. I like this place.

Visited on a Friday night at around five oíclock. Place was packed. Well over 100 people. Nine beers were on tap and two on cask at the time of visit. Most 4oz samples were $1. A couple were $2. Pints were $4 and $5. Tried all of their beers and I liked them. The service was great. They give you free popcorn to eat while you drink your beer. Glad I came. I will come back next time Iím in San Diego.

Small entry way/lobby prior to entering the rather large tasting room and brewery. Long bar set up with a couple tables and a little lounge area in the corner. Service was friendly and helpful. About 12 beers on tap, most of which were mediocre. Wasnít really overly impressed by the beers, but a nice atmosphere.

Visited right after they opened (earlier this summer). Easy parking in a typical industrial lot. Nice atmosphere inside with plenty of places to sit and a good amount of room in general. Sampling flights are available, and they have a large selection of house beers for such a new brewery. At the time some of the beers needed some noticeable tweaking, but that can be expected. Decent prices, friendly owner. Worth another trip to see if they have figured out their system.
