t0rin0  (1529) Do Not Resuscitate, California | April 28, 2013
Visited April 27, 2013.

It took a few minutes to find this place since it’s in the back of the complex. Small tasting room with a crowd of usuals enjoying some beer. Friedly bartenders, friendly brewer, and friendly guests. Nowhere to sit but there is enough counter space that you can at least set your drink down somewhere. Be warned that getting here can be a pain as you will probably end up driving through old town where there are pedestrians all over the place, just as many cops, and a stop sign sign every 100 feet.

There were eleven taps and one of them was a rootbeer, so ten beers to try. The best were the strawberry blonde and the imperial stout and the worst were the chili beer (with actual pieces of pepper in it) and the red ale. Nothing was offensive, so they have that going for them but I dont think I had anything amazing either.

No food served here that I could see and I didnt see a food truck outside but it was shortly before closing time (8 pm for all the breweries in Temecula, except Black Market who was grandfathered in apparently). The tab was pretty cheap so I left a big tip, $5 tab. $5 tip.

Visited on 9th Feb 2017 just as the weekly quiz was about to start: just what we wanted (not). Half mile out of town all Yellow and Black outside, modern and slick inside. Outlines of the California state seem to dominant the place, even the flights come on one. This brewer likes to ’fanny around’ with his beers, so do not expect a light golden Pilsner or an APA or IPA to quench your thirst after walking out here like we did. Every single beer had something added, quirky style, or so it seemed. Beers were actually fine and the server was too, overworked because of the quiz crowd mostly, but she kept her cool (mostly). So weird concoctions in a modern setting sums up the place.

From what I remember, this wasn’t an industrial park. Wha?? I know... It looked more like a small strip of storefronts off the main drag. Not hard to find. Inside they keep the place pretty dark. A bit of a lounge feel to it both with the lighter and decor. Plenty of seats at the bar with few few small tables. I guess the brewery is behind the wall of taps. You can’t see it from the tasting room. They’ve obviously tried to keep it separate, which is fine. They had swag for sale including some nice looking glassware with their logo and a few bottles to go. The server was nice enough, but was more interested in chatting it up with the regulars. Again, fine with me. I was really impressed with the ridiculous amount of house beers. I counted 31. Most of them were weird styles like candy bar stouts, mexican coffee porters and cinnamon raisin cookie ambers... stuff like that. They had some normal beers too. Most of them were ok with a few stand outs. Definitely fun to try, but since many of them were high gravity, it would be really hard to try them all. Prices seemed really high too. Overall, I would recommend stopping in especially if you like novelty beers of decent quality.

Small industrial spot. Beer was simply amazing. Bartender was extremely nice and knowledgeable. Place was dim lit with a few tables and seating at a smaller bar. Beer tanks in the back corner and are visible when standing by the bathroom.

This is a brewery located just off the interstate in Temecula in a run down industrial area. The interior is open and there is ample bar seating. Roughly a dozen beers were on tap during my visit. Friendly staff.

Small tasting room in an industrial park. Ten beers and a root beer on tap. Metal on the stereo and NHL Network on the TV. Nice staff.

Kind of difficult to find as you have to go around the back of the parking lot to get to the tasting room. The tasting room is very small, but has a decent sized L-shaped bar and some seating along the walls. Lots of beers on tap, but mostly just mediocre beers. The service was quite friendly and the pricing was decent.

Warehouse not facing the main road in the industrial white and blue strip complex. Drive around and there is plenty of parking. Cramped brewery tasting room that has room for probably 10 people max and then it will be standing room only. Low foam ceiling. Larger tap list, 13 on tap including their n/a root beer that was pretty yummy. Beer quality was higher than expected. Sampler flight available for about $1 per heftier ~5 oz sample. Staff was very friendly, attentive, knowledgeable. She dealt with one of the most annoying people I’ve ever heard in my life that complained and whined about their ridiculous beer hatreds and vegan diet. They came in and complained about food and beer in general for about 45 minutes, tried one sample, didn’t like it, and left after debating the entire time which of the 14 beers on tap would not kill them. Anyway, definitely worth going to not just for a tick fest.
