Small tasting room with a nice open air front/entrance. Some barrels around for tables in the tasting room, but not much room at the actual bar. A nice space out back on the patio area where you can get a cool view and the brewing equipment. The best beer was their double IPA, the others were decent, but nothing really outstanding. Prices weren’t necessarily cheap, but not terribly offensive either.

A nice oceanside tap room and brewery, about a block off the beach. Open doors on both ends keep the breezes flowing through. The taproom was full but not overcrowded during our visit. They offer stand up seating looking out on the sidewalk and patio seating out back, also with some indoor seating. The beers are solid and service friendly. They had a food vendor when we visited.

Small tasting room with a few barrels scattered around. Friendly service. The beers were all solid. I’ll be back. On Tuesday they have "taster Tuesday", 3 samples for $3.

Very small venue but huge in terms of quality! All 4 beers I had were very good especially the 3xIPA. Can’t wait to return.

Visited on Saturday afternoon (28th May 2016). Busy and full, inside there are four barrels for tables, no chairs; the bar is towards the rear with a ramp to the left leading to a raised patio with pallet furniture. Large board shows which 12 beers of theirs are available, an extra one was advertised on the actual bar. Two young ladies fronting the place with a stall selling Guacamole on the patio. Good vibe and 3oz pours ensured I stayed there for a while and ended up having 12 of the 13 beers on tap. A few artist prints for sale on one wall, their T’shirts hung on another. Basic lay out with no frills, brewing equipment on show for all to see. Liked it, beers were all fine too.

Très Californien comme local. Deux espaces, un petit espace extérieur avec quelques places assises et diverses jeux, un espace intérieur lumineux avec que des places debouts. Les bières sont principalement ’’de soif’’ avec une qualité généralement respectable.

I can’t believe it has taken me so long to get to this brewery. Although I frequent SB, for whatever reason I have never stopped in. The place is tiny, so thankfully I was there on a Tuesday at 2:30, because I can see this place becoming uncomfortable stat. The beertender was a little curt, but honestly the beers were so good I let her "you are lucky to be here" attitude slide. Culture is worthy of the hype they have been getting and my growler will be filled often.

been 3x, and will be back. Like the place, the beer, the brewer. Cover styles well and they’re willing to go outside the box.

We were driving through Solana Beach and saw Culture Brewing Company and decided to stop by. The place is a very very small space. I’d hesitate to call it a storefront, as it doesn’t look at all like a traditional storefront. It’s almost a roof between two building with a retractable front and back. Food truck was in the back. Beers were decent and certainly refreshing during the "heat wave" that the area was suffering from. The only knock I have against the place were the number of dog owners who filled the place up with their animals. I understand the place is dog-friendly, but it felt entirely inappropriate to have dogs anywhere but near the front of the building.

Cool place, with a great vibe. Very open place so it’s great for warmer months. Also near Belly Up so the perfect place to stop by before a show. Staff is friendly and helpful with selections. A good selection but didn’t have exactly what I was looking for. I will stop by again, the place is good but not my favorite in Solana Beach.

Visited on a Monday evening. This is a nice place near PP Solana Beach. Much different vibe though as it was much quieter and I guess you could say laid back even though there was a lot of people here too. Quite a few business people and couples. Very small bar with a few tables in front and a porch area in back with some spots on the railing to set your beer, but not many seats. They could use more seating here to make things more comfortable. They had a good number of beers on tap, but not many interesting ones. Mostly standard styles like blonde, brown, IPA... they were all ok, but nothing I’d go out of my way for. They’re definitely going for more of a classy, upscale image compared to a lot of other local breweries. The service was ok. Worth a stop.
