Cool bar area over top the brewhouse and cellar areas, with lots of seating around fixed tables, which I kind of like so no one can move them and create flow issues. Bartenders were smart and quick, had some secret beers on tap not on the list if you ask. Hop forward like most of San Diego, but cool other stuff too. Very cool spot.

A cool sterile space where you walk above the brewery to get to the taproom. Bartender was friendly and happy to talk about the beer. They had around 15 taps with samplers available. No food on site. Prices were inline with the area. A decent spot overall.

Visited during lunch at the Super Bowl Sunday in February 2017. The place was quite big and almost empty. The service was polite and fast. I ordered a flight and thought that the beers were ok. Located close to 30th Street.

You enter this tasting room on a walkway suspended above the brewing room- a great way to get in the mood for beers in a brewery. Loads of their beers on tap. The flight had, I think, six beers as well as a free pint glass, which was cool. Lots of good beer in their lineup. Maybe not the worlds best, but very solid options from top to bottom. The barkeepers were friendly and quick. A very modern, polished feel overall. Not a cozy comfortable place, but a good space for large groups and really taking a few down. big TVs showing the games. A nice option especially with larger groups.

Quite crowded on a Thursday evening. Nice entrance with a long aisle leading you to the bar. Good beers, good atmosphere. Service was really nice as well. Worth a visit.

A large garage-style brewpub located in an alley near 30th Street. Loud and noisy even though it was not that crowded. Samplers were quite expensive, but they included a glass. Beers were okay, but the selection was quite small.

In a nutshell, i’m not a fan of Hess brews. There is something about them, something in the body specifically, that doesn’t work for me. That said, this is one of the coolest breweries with a super effective staff. It gets huge marks on service and ambiance. But, i’m here for the beer, and it’s just not my thing.

Un endroit assez spectaculaire la première fois qu’on y met les pieds avec sa passerelle qui passe entre les fermenteurs. Les styles sont variés, la qualité variable, parfois très bon, la Kolsh est particulièrement réussie.

Visited on a weekday evening. This place is pretty cool and unique. To get inside, you walk over a catwalk from the sidewalk over the brewery into the tasting room. Never seen a set up like that. Once inside, everything is laid out really nicely. Plenty of space with tables and some lounge type seating along the walls. They do tasters, flights and pints like most of the brewery tasting rooms in the area. Prices were ok as far as I remember. There’s also some TV’s showing sporting events but they don’t distract if you’re just there for the beers and/or socializing. The quality was pretty good overall and the service was friendly and fairly quick. I was impressed with the scale of the place considering this is one of the lesser known San Diego breweries. Worth a stop for sure.

Interesting setup here. The walkway to the tasting room is sort of a vaulted catwalk with the brewing equipment visible below. The bar/tasting area is sort of above it as well, though it seems to be on a full, solid concrete base.

They had maybe 15 beers on tap during my visit with a good number being new ones. A number of seasonals and special batches seem to be available on a regular basis. They do a flight of five which costs about $10 and includes a free glass. You can also get full pours if you’d like. The hoppy beers here are pretty good with some of the other styles being hit or miss. They also do "crowlers" here, which is kind of cool as I’d never seen those actually filled before.

Despite being rather busy on a weekend night, the service was very quick. The guy working the bar was pleasant and helpful. Always good...

They don’t make the best beer in San Diego, but it’s good and the location is convenient. Worth a stop in your 30th Street tour.
