Went to the brewery. They were out of Shipwrecked- the one beer I wanted to taste. Beautiful building but overall disappointed. Could be much better.

First brewery I stopped at in San Diego, early afternoon, soon after it opened so it was nearly empty. It is located in an old Wonder Bread factory, as evidenced by the sign that they kept on the side of the establishment. Just southeast of downtown, the area is a little dicy but once you get here it is ok (less rural, more industrial). The brewery itself is great - big, open, bright. Large bar with plenty of room, and high tables. I really enjoyed the atmosphere, and the big brew stills are out and visible behind you when seated at the bar.

And they do have some solid beers. I started with a pint of Shipwrecked double IPA and followed with the Dark Seas Russian Imperial Stout. Both were +9% abv, both were delicious. I was feeling pretty good after knocking those bad boys back, and was intrigued by their hard root beer up on the blackboard, so I had to try that too. That was also tasty, creamy with some noticeable astringency but still good.

Left with fond memories. Was off to Monkey Paw next, but I will def be back at Mission when I return to SD.

Large, open space with high ceiling and working brewery atmosphere. Long bar along one side and windows on the other side to see the brewery, with some table in between. Pretty loud and busy on this Saturday afternoon. Only had time for one beer, a porter, which was very good. Service was quick and servers were helpful with questions. Not sure about the food, since I didn't try any. Great place to try if you like beer and are downtown.

Great spot and great beer. Nice large bar and plenty of space for those who want to stand or huddle around one of the few tall tables. If you're not a baseball fan aim to arrive in the second inning of a Padres game and you'll have the place nearly to yourself. Taco truck outside the front door was also a nice touch. Can't wait to visit again.
