Located in an outdoor mall with lots of food options. Nice outdoor patio seating with fire pit. Inside is Irish pub theme. About 5 house beers on tap with average quality. Tasting flights available. Menu was heavy, over extended, and highly caloric. Service was very slow and we were not waited on for quite awhile. Probably won’t be back.
Located in a large outdoor shopping center/mall. Nice outdoor seating area and a decent sized bar area. About 7 house beers on tap during my visit, but lots of taps available. Prices for samples/flights are pretty good. Beers are decent on the whole. Service was friendly and prompt as well.
Lots of interesting beers and lots of ticks. A great DIPA and great barleywine make drinking the other not so memorable beers alright.
More of a sports bar in down town Vista. Outside there are fire pits that you can sit around. Inside there are trivia games and TVs. Service was kind of non existent, which isn’t bad if you order your beers at the bar and go sit down but if you’re looking for a pleasant dining experience this probably isnt the place for you.
The onion rings and the wings were pretty good and reasonably priced. Would go back to try the new beers which seem to rotate regularly.
**update: I hear they have a new brewer and the beers have gotten better so I’ll have to get back there.
Small bar, but also has outdoor firepit area. Not a big selection of taps, but decent enough. Suprisingly cheap house brews at happy hour... $2-3. Good IPA’s. It’s a good place to drink a few beers before watching a movie at the theatre.
In a mini mall with an abundance of parking. Big pizza store attached to a brewpub. Brewing system is on a balcony overlooking the main floor (new thing to me). Did not try the food. Order a sample flight. The bartender was interested in me taking notes. I mentioned that I heard that they had a new brewer (former of Alpine). The bartender confirmed and gave me several additional pours of new beer made by the new brewer. The hoppy beers are excellent, but apparently they go quickly. Most of the beers on tap are not the new brewer’s recipe as they are in transition. The session IPA that I did have (which was his recipe) was fantastic. Prices were very fair. They do growler fills.
Brewpub has a handful of their own beers plus several guest taps including a couple Sam Adams, Black Butte Porter, Guinness, Lindemans, and more.
House brews were very average, and now I see why it makes so much sense for them to have several guest taps. Food was average to above average, and it’s all basic pizza parlor fare including pizzas of course, breadsticks, garlic bread, fried mozz sticks, pastas, etc.
Expensive & touristy area, so I’ll give them a judgment of "reasonable" for the highish prices.
A good place to hangout with friends. The pizza is pretty good. Not a big selection of beers, but if they dont have a house beer you like you can get the ’Big Brewers’. The service was great, and always friendly. The bar is a little small but you can go outside to the firepit and people watch. Good location in the new developing downtown Vista.
