This place is right across the street from Refuge Brewing which is nice, since you get two place ticks with one stop. They both have a ton of beers on tap so youíre bound to find something you like. This place is pretty big and Iím told that theyíre a winery who recently got into making beer. Certainly the brewery is a pretty good size.
The menu is a bit confusing since there are several chalk boards but some of the beers appear on multiple boards. All in all I tried the full sampler of 15 house beers and they were actually out of a couple when I got there (a couple of barrel aged beers). Most of the beers were at least drinkable with the exception of the barleywine, one of the single hop beers, and red ale and lager. The rest were alright.
Prices were good as we got 15 samples for $18. Unfortunately their credit card application doesnt have a tip function and neither of us had any cash on us. Next time Iíl have to leave an extra couple bucks.

Nice easy in and out spot with easy parking. They have a large space carved out of the brewery for the tasting room. This is a pretty large space. The staff was friendly and engaging and helped me sample a large flight of their offerings. Everything was pretty hoppy and enjoyable (I love hops so enjoyment was easy).

We visited this brewery 21.12.2013. Very nice place, bar and some tables to the left, behind the whole brewery including bottling machine and quite a few wooden barrels. They have some very special beers: dry hopped Mšrzen, black IPA on cask and some others. Insomnia IPA is very good! Absolutely recommendable.

Easily the lowlight of the Temecula breweries. Pretty decent atmosphere and a nice decor for a brewery in a business park. The service was decent, though it took some convincing from the bartender that we wanted to try ALL of the beers. Beers here are awful, unfortunately. Price isnít bad, but not worth wasting the money.

Large, modern brewhouse with a full tasting room. Erroneously added to ratebeer as a brewpub, which this is NOT. No food. Wide open spaces, nice wooden decor, original artwork. Beer hall type feel. Service was quick and helpful. Everything on tap was available in sampler size. Nicely labeled apparatus for flights. Beer quality however was shockingly low given the amount of money poured into this place. Big pan-offering DMS problem and oversteeped/overboiled grain issues. Needs a new brewer. The place as a place rating is great, but the beer is not good sadly. Also, like t0rin0 said, you canít tip on cards here for some bizarre reason so make sure you have some cash for that. Bartender didnít look upset about it as it seems they have shafted her for quite awhile now.
