3 minutes walking from Pure Project / Amplified Ale Works, this spot exceeded my expectations. Fairly large, modern and clean, almost corporate-feeling, brewpub. Over a dozen on tap, flights available for a reasonable price. Beer quality was decent, with a couple of relative stand-outs. Service was excellent and accommodating to the ticker mentality. Worth a stop if you have time, but not a must-hit spot.

Come for the amazing and fun service, but everything else is just ho hum. Flights and a decent tap list, but beer is very average. Decent size tap room and pleasant tongue in cheek decor.
A bit of a larger space in the Beeramar area. Service was decent and they had about 10 beers on tap with samplers available. No food on site but they did have a food truck on site. Prices were decent. Not my favorite of the Beeramar breweries but still solid.
Another of the Miramar area breweries...they offer a dozen or so taps of good beer. There is no food here but plenty all around the area. The service was prompt and it was not that crowded during my middle of the afternoon visit.
Visited on a Wednesday evening in February 2017. The place was crowded with young people. I guess they were there for the Quiz. I kind of liked the interior and the beers were decent. Located close to Pure Project, Amplified and Ballast Point and others.
Duck Foot. Another brewery amidst many others on the Miramar stretch. This one with at least two others on the same street. Wow. Anyway, this place is pretty nice as tasting rooms go. Pretty spacious with lots of tables, but no seats at the bar if my memory serves me. This was our last stop of the night, so I might be missing some details. You order your beers at the register and then take them to your seat. I’m ok with that as long as I get to sit down somewhere. We sat along the rail overlooking the brewing equipment. We ended up chatting up one of the brewers for about 10 minutes. I was wondering if this was a regular thing that kept them from their actual job duties, but it didn’t seem to bother her at all. I enjoyed the conversation. The beers were all very solid. Some were just ok and other were above average. Nothing really stood out as great, but there was enough of a selection that makes this worth a stop for sure. We got a flight of every beer they had on tap, 13 total. The server was more than happy to pour all those tasters at once, so that was pretty cool. Overall, this is a nice tasting room with some pretty good beers. I don’t know if I’d stop by again, but I would recommend going at least once to try them out.
Despite being in a business park area, this tasting room is really quite nice. Not the hugest tasting room, but pretty well decorated. Modern, clean, etc. For the most part, their beers were pretty good, though a couple of duds in my opinion. They had a lot of beers available, too, which is cool. They do offer a flight of 5, but you can also just order individual tasters.
The service was pretty good, but not amazing. They were actually kind of busy on a Saturday night, so I’ll forgive it.
Probably one of the better options in the area, but you’re not really competing against much other than Alesmith and Ballast Point. I mean, (Wet N’) Reckless is literally down the street...so that’s bringing down the average.

Cool new place in beeramar. The tap room isn’t huge, but it’s clean and decorated in a really cool way. Beertenders were super accommodating and friendly. Beers were clean and well made. They didn’t have a whole lot of options, and the beers on tap were pretty standard brewery fare (red, blond, IPA, Porter), but they were all pretty good. All of the beers are treated with an enzyme that renders them gluten reduced (under 10 parts per million). The beers are apparently tested exhaustively. One of the owners apparently suffers from celiac disease. These guys are here to stay.
Edit: I picked up a growler of West Coast IPA, and after drinking it, I’m raising my score a bit. Super clean, vibrant, bursting with tropical fruit. Killer.
