Nice place with a barsectipn and a restaurant section. We went for the bar, decently crowded on a late Sunday afternoon. Had a flight of four, debut IPA was amazing. Quite pricey though, 18 dollars for for tasters is definitely too much

Expected another typical warehouse/business park brewery given the location, but was really surprised. I mean, it’s still in that kind of building, but the interior is very well done, modern, and relatively high end compared to your typical brewery.

Full food menu and also a wine tasting room/winery to go with the brewpub side. They do flights of I believe 5 house beers, and there were a pretty good selection to choose from. Full pours and halves available as well. The beers were pretty solid and an impressive guest list, too.

The bartender was quite good and provided solid service. My only real gripe here is the price as a flight is like $15, which is kind of on the high side.

High end but really fine place. House beers all solid, maple doughnut stout was outstanding. A fantastic list of other beers, most rare and from CA. The food is pricey but extremely good. They also make their own wine, for those who are into that. Worth a trip, but be prepared to fork out some coin.

Belle sélection, rien de particulièrement rare mais choisi avec tact. Certains items du menu bouffe sont ’’surchargés’’ et certains même déçoivent. On paie pour de la grande cuisine et c’est pas toujours ce qu’on a dans l’assiette mais les bières maisons sont solide. Je crois que cet endroit aspire à plus et ça viendra mais c’est pas dans ma palette de prix.

This is a brewery/winery operation in a (relatively) high-end restaurant, at least "high-end" compared to what you would typically see associated with an operating brewpub. The beers were all pretty good, seven total house offerings, a couple saisons, a couple hoppy pale offerings, and a dark espresso beer. The guest draft list was pretty choice, with a handfull of selections that I imagine are relatively hard to find. Prices were just a tad high, the flight of all seven house beers was over $20, although the pours were probably around 5 ozs. Looks like they have a good thing going here. Not quite a "destination" type place yet, but I could see them getting there in a year or so.

This is hidden in a business district of sorts. The standard warehouse-brewrey-type location. I can only assume that they’ve marketed themselves enough on social media since there certainly isn’t much foot traffic in the area. What they have though is pretty nice. I think the place is actually called Cork and Craft but they are operating both a brewery (Abnormal Beer Co) and a winery (Abnormal Wine). I’m assuming that they’re all the same owner. The wine wont be ready for a few more months but you can see the equipment behind the bar. All stainless tanks, no barrels that I could see. On the other side of the room, behind a glass wall is the brewery, maybe 7 bbl. Nice place.

They had half a dozen house beers on tap along with a couple dozen other guest taps. I was kind of surprised by some of the guest beers. For example, they had barrel aged Wee Heavy and some Speedway variant from AleSmith. There was some Lost Abbey and a bunch of other San Diego breweries. The house beers were decent. They had several IPAs, a coffee stout, and a honey beer, and a couple others that I’m not remembering right now. The servers were friendly and efficient but not overly talkative.

I think what they’re doing here is smart. Brew beer and do a decently classy restaurant. That way if one fails you still have the other while you work on your faults. Prices are maybe a touch high on beer; inconsistent if nothing else. All house pints are $6 but the half pints range in price for $3 to $4.

The Cork and Craft is located in Rancho Bernardo just off of I-15 in a somewhat industrial/business complex. The restaurant is open and intimately lit with a small bar area looking directly at the beer tanks and 30 or so taps. Currently (January 2015) their beer is not on tap though it should be within a couple of weeks. The tap selection is diverse and changes over frequently and the bottle list is nothing to sneer at. The food is divine though a tad pricey. Overall, this is a very good brewpub and well worth a visit.
