small but nice place, looks pretty new, good variety of beers, not just IPAs, nice samplers and the had over a dozen beers so enough to keep me entertained, tried 8 and were mostly good, on the dry side. Liked the IPA and the Scottish ale

Fresh place not far from Council. Wooden furniture but kinda cosy. Cool event when we visited during sDBW2015, where they had 12 versions of their table beer. Good beers,nice atmosphere.

Brand new tasting room near Chargers stadium in the valley. Some seriously nice decor going on in here. Reminded me a bit of Le Cumbre Brewing inside with an upstairs, lots of wood rafters. Picnic bench seating. 6 or so beers on tap, all house beers, with a special cask on as well as homemade soda, strawberry today. Prices were good, service friendly. Beer quality was average with their IPA being the best and their cask offering being the worst. Tasted like sanitizer. Also worth noting this is a closed in, central air place as most tasting rooms in the area are not.

Visited August 31, 2013.

Another new brewery in San Diego with a surprisingly large facility. I was happy that they have a climate controlled tasting room, especially having just come from Lost Abbey where it was hot and busy. I like the picnic tables. The beer is all pretty decent so far, except that grapefruit IPA on cask which was terrible. The IPA was the best (in my opinion), the blonde and oatmeal stout were nice. I could see this being a regular stop when in the area.

Really nice tasting room located near the stadium. Plenty of seating at picnic tables, and a small bar area. Five beers on tap and a hand pump. Friendly service and decent pricing. The IPA was the best beer, but most were at least decent. They also had a strawberry soda.

This place is awesome. Beautifully done tasting room and brewery set-up. Parents of brewer were bartenders and were very knowledgeable about their beers, as well as the breweries of San Diego. They are newly opened, and I think we will hear more from them soon.
