Pretty large tasting room in an industrial park. Large selection of taps to choose from, available in flights of 4. Beer quality was decent, with a standout or two. Friendly, quick service, and decent prices. Not a top tier place in Greater San Diego, but a fun little stop that’s worth it if you’re up in Vista.

Probablement le plus brillant salon de dégustation du nord de San Diego. Les bières sont encore inégales pour le moment mais j’y ai goûté quelques beaux flash. J’adore l’âme de la place, c’est déjà énorme, surtout dans un arrondissement industriel.

Another industrial park brewery with an unassuming entrance into a world of craft beer heaven. The large, open bar area offers ample seating in a multitude of options: bar, table, couch. All is decorated with recycled wood and metals giving a rustic charm to this place. Outside is another bar and several picinc tables and a food vendor. There is spacious standing room if lines were to form and get long. A diverse set of craft beers are neatly listed on a large chalkboard, complete with individual statistics. The beers are solid and I look forward to many more visits here.

> Popular, well decorated, open tasting room with fun to try average quality beers

>> Fairly crowded area, open and inviting, board games, happy staff and regular crowd. Large house beer tap list with sampler flights available. Samplers came in massive near 5oz tumblers with excellent custom wood organizer trays. Beers ranged from not so great to quite good with their apple ale pretty boss and the favorite of our group. Overall, would recommend on your North County SD beer tour.

A nice little setup. Decent range of beers on tap. The quality level is somewhat average but the value for tasters is great. I think my favorite beer was the hoppy lager (cant recall the name and cant be bothered to check). Friendly staff, wifi, nice Western-influenced decor. There was a food vendor set up,outside the brewery though I dont know ifnit is always there. Quite near to several other breweries so would fit nicely into a crawl.

Found this place while driving from Barrel Harbor to the nearest McRib Depot to cleanse our palates. Saw a sign on the side of the road, slammed the breaks, threw it in reverse, and made my way into the parking lot (which is really about 5 parking spaces). They were having a soft opening of sorts, so just three beers on tap, but they have room for a lot more. The IPA and Pale ale need some work, but the coffee porter was okay. The guy was really friendly and happy to talk about the beers. Interesting decor with a rifle hanging over the taps, tap handles of antler pieces...Will probably come back once they get into the swing of things and have some more beers on tap.

Visited November 2, 2013.

This was a complete accidental find. 20piecenuggetscantsail and I were heading from Barrel Harbor to the nearest McDonalds for some McRibs when we drove by a sign that said "brewery tasting room". He slams the brakes, backs up, and we visit our fourth brewery on the trip from the Black Tuesday event at the Bruery heading towards the barrel dinner at Lost Abbey. That trip did in fact include a McRib stop. Two McRbis a piece to be exact.

This is another of about 200 warehouse-breweries in California trying to differentiate themselves by brewing on a tiny system. The problem with this type of cookie cutter setup is (aside from the fact that they can’t make enough beer to be profitable) that you as the consumer never know what you’re walking into. Some are hilariously bad and some are pretty damned good. These guys fall somewhere in between. The beers were all first runs and they have already kicked three of the six by the time we got there, so I’m not even sure what the more popular beers tasted like. The IPA was decent but needs work, but had enough potential to get me to come back and try it. The Coffee Oatmeal Porter (COP) was heavy on the coffee but fine for what it was. The pale was less inspiring. Like I said, the beers are first batches so I’ll have to come back at some point. That said, at this time they don’t offer flights so you’re supposed to buy full glasses. The bartender was nice enough to give us a couple oz taster in a pint glass of each of the three beers. He said it was free, so I just left him a buck a taster.

I could see parking becoming an issue here if the place ever takes off but there is always street parking. Also, I like the decor, or at least what little decor was present. They have antlers for tap handles, some wood paneling over the walk in, and a random double barrel shotgun on the wall. Nice people, the pricing seemed about right, they’re just missing flights now. Oh and by the looks of it they’re working on the patio out back.

Add one more brewery to the insane list already present in/around Vista (13 other breweries within a 3 or 4 mile radius...).
