A nice rustic local that definitely served the immediate community. Friendly pleasant service that served flights. Beer was pretty average with nothing really standing out. A comfortable stop for food and a pint.

Kind of a dive bar that brews it's own beer. Dog friendly to the point of being a bit stinky. Medium sized bar and two rooms of bar tables. Food truck out front. Solid creative beers. Flights of four. Server had good recommendations. Very worthwhile stop.

Visited on an early Thursday in February 2017. A pleasant little place with friendly service and decent beers. Don’t miss the Grand Ole BBQ y Asado next door. I walked to this place from my hotel in San Diego, The Lafayette. It took around 40 minutes.

We came here on 16.2.2015. A real North Park neighborhood brewery full with locals giving the place a great atmosphere. You can feel this is not one of the breweries set up by investors, just to make money. This place has a strong character. We also liked the beers, especially the IPA’s and the sour ale were outstanding. A food truck is placed in front of the brewery. Bring your ID with you, my wife was asked to verify her age. Overall a really good addition to San Diego’s beer scene.

We came here and did about 6 tasters. Tap list was interesting with 10-12 house beers including some a barrel-aged barleywine and BA imperial stout. Everything was solid with beer scores ranging in the mid 3s. No obvious brewing flaws. The pilsner was actually pretty solid. Their agave amber ale was probably my favorite. Interior design is very trendy with a Old West saloon feel. Very interesting bathroom too with sliding wooden barn doors. Cool place overall. Yelp check-in gets you a free taster by the way.

A nice and cozy brewpub. Very much a place I would frequent if I were a local. First thing I saw, after the bar, was a couple dogs hanging out, which is always a plus. Only downer was they smelled bad, which went away as soon as the patron left with them. A pretty large selection of brews and I snagged a healthy tasting flight. A wide-range of styles, all pretty solid but nothing outstanding. Barkeep was friendly, engaging, and quick with the beers. Very nice place.

Thanks Cole for taking me here. Nice place separated into two different rooms. One with the bar and one with the brewery where the roof was open. Nice beers, not that busy and service was good. Flights available as in almost every tasting room in this city.

J’adore cet endroit même si la qualité est inconstante pour le moment, excellent potentiel. La terrasse à l’arrière vaut à elle seule le détour.

Visited during SDBW in Nov 14. 16 beers on tap with a mix of styles including a couple of one-offs and BA. Tasting flights available to help a thirsty rater which meant sampled all on offer. A decent mix wwith some beers better than others, place had 2 rooms and had a nice mix of folk in the venue. A worthy stop if crawling 30th St.

Visited on Saturday 15/11/14 around 3.30/45pm. Decent back street brewpub just of 30th in the north park district of SD. 16 of their own beers on tap including some BA offerings. You could rack up the ticks in tasting flights of either 4, 8 or 16. Tried all 16 and the ratings averaged at 3.21 for me which is respectable enough from my point of view, a few 3.5’s and 3.6’s in the roster. The place was moderately busy, smallish front room and bar with a screen showing live sports. We chose to head to the patio out the back. Clientele was varied, female drinkers on their own, young/old, families and some sad fucken tickers! Overall a decent enough small scale brewpub.
