Visited December 2016.

The second location for the San Marcos brewery. Somewhat open to 30th Street with a long bar and all the beers listed on the board behind the bar. Lots of beers, in fact. They do flights with the usual $2-3 a pop pricing.

I recall really liking the beers these guys were making when they first opened, but they didn't seem quite as good to me on this visit. They also do a lot of treatments/variants of their more standard/core beers, so you at least have the option of getting multiple different versions of your favorite.

Service was pretty good and the place itself was nice overall. They also had some interesting bottles for purchase if the house beers aren't your thing.

Big surfer themed bar. Long bar and some seating both at the front and the back. 20 tap's but several where out at our visit, so maybe 12 or so avaible, some guests beers aswell. Flight of 3 to 5 beers avaible at 2,5-3$ a pours. Best was good, not outstanding. Fine service and prices.

A surfer themed bar with a large tap list. Service was OK, but considering we were almost the only ones there not really interested. Flights at a good price and beer that was pretty solid.

Surfer themed bar appropriately open to the elements on two sides. Really long bar plus restaurant tables. Food window in the back serves lumpia, sandwiches and something else that escapes my memory at the moment. Flights of five available or full pours. Freindly service.

Last stop on our North Park crawl. 26 taps were on, mostly Rip Current, several guests as well. Flights available. Good prices. Worth checking out.

A cool spot with a bit of a surf theme to the place. Large bar kind of splits the place in to two seating areas. Bartender was pretty knowledgeable about the beer and relatively quick. They had 20ish taps with flights available. There was a window for food in the back and it was delicious. Prices were good overall. A very good brewpub.

Visited on a rather crowded Tuesday evening in late January 2017. Despite that the service was still fast and friendly. The selection was good. Located close to Toronado, Bottlecraft and other nice places. I would not mind to visit this place again in the future.

Interior is unpretentious, open, inviting. Servers are alert, helpful and friendly. You wanna have a crater or three. Music is subdued so you can actually hear yourself think. Their beers are outstanding - have tasters so you can enjoy several without making Virginia fence. Food is a side business, and very good. For all San Diego residents and visitors, a must.

We came here 17.2.2016. I have expected a much better place as I had one of their beers in Churchil’s the day before. Looks very commercial, mainstream, not cosy at all. Beers were absolutely ok (like the Porters and Stouts) but this place is lacking atmosphere starting with the logo, the T-Shirts, the service, the music and the decoration. Ok, but no need to come as there are so many better places in this area.

Relatively big, open space. Long but narrow. The bar is nice and long with plenty of table seating, too. A good number of TVs for SD sports. Was mildly crowded when I stopped in but nice overall. Nothing special about the atmosphere. barkeeper was friendly, knowledgeable and quick with my brew. The beers were very tasty from top to bottom ranging a nice variety of styles. A nice place to catch a couple pints.
