A huge and very pretty tap room at the brewery. A barrel room is available as well to try some tasty but heavy beers in a more intimate setting. Staff was very fun and friendly. Flights and small pours were available. One of the better stops in SD.

Visited during RBWG 2018. Large place, spacious and airy, on multiple levels. long winding bar with views of the brewhouse behind glass. Head to the merch area to get timed tickets to the man cave that has half a dozen or so big barrel aged beers available in a "splash," 3 or 5 ounces. Very friendly efficient service. Good range of beers as well, and different bottles for take away. No food. A world apart from their original location.

Visited with BeerandBlues2. Large place overlooking the brewery in the back. Pretty much great selection, 23 taps in the main room and 8 more barrel ages in the Anvil & Stave. Wasn’t too crowded during our visit. Prices may be a bit on the high side, but worth it since some world class beers can be tried here. A must when in San Diego.

A big spot in Beeramar. Place was busy and service was a bit spotty but bartenders were knowledgeable. They had 20ish taps in the main area and some barrel aged taps in the barrel aged area. Samplers were available. Food trucks on site. Prices were a bit heavy but worthwhile. A world class brewery.

Wow, this place is impressively huge and seriously modern styled. Very large inside seating area at an extremely long bar but also nice outdoor seating around some gas fires. Beers go from their core range, which are pretty easy to get to one-offs that are only available locally. There was almost no crowd during our visit (Sunday night) making it a very pleasant experience, service was quick and happy to help. Small pours of everything are available, which is pretty important when there are four or more variations of Speedway Stout on tap... Overall an extremely nice upgrade from the previous shopping-center style tasting room which almost feels grande.

Stunning modern facility with plenty of seating and an expansive interior in general. A wonderful upgrade from the old place.You can also sample right up the bar (standing only). Good selection of taps, many of which are seasonals / one-offs, and sold in various size formats (4 oz. being the smallest for most). Beer quality is stunning, as we’ve come to expect from AleSmith. Service can be a bit slow, but they are friendly and happy to help. There is an outside seating and standing room area, where there is often a food truck pulled up.

Even better is the Anvil & Stave room to the right (do not miss this!), which is a small, dark room offering up some of their specialty barrel aged beers. They had 6 on tap in there when I went. Even more awesome is that they serve them in 1.5 oz ($2.50), 3 oz. ($4) or 6 oz. ($7) pours, which is awesome for the ticker, for the wallet and if you need to drive.

Overall, this is my favourite brewery in San Diego and cannot say enough good things about this place.

Visited at 11 am on a Wednesday in February 2017. We were the first customers that day. This place is large and clean with both outdoor and indoor seating. The beers at the main bar were nice but even better beers at the Anvil & Stave. I would not mind to visit this place again.

Visited Thursday, 6/30/2016. Large, futuristic taproom. This place is really big - capacity must be several hundred people. Beers of course are excellent. Food trucks available outside. Dog friendly. Service was fast and courteous, despite the fact that there were a lot of people there. Be sure to check out back bar for more barrel-aged beers. Definitely need to stop here if you’re in the area.
