Was visiting family in Temecula and decided to head over to take a look with my dad. The outside of the building is nothing special as its located in an industrial park. Walked in the wrong door and saw the whiskey barrels they are aging some stuff in. Damn I wanted to snag one! J/K

Went in the other door and sat down. They had only opened 5 mins earlier. Got a nice greeting from the (good looking) bar chica, Jenn. Very cool and nice to chat with.

I had a flite of about 5 beers. The IPAs were very good. The Quad was very floral and citrusy, and you could tell it was 11%. A couple of those and I woulda been having a siesta.

They had about 8 beers on tap. Everything was great quality. The bombers were $5 each. Pretty good deal.

All in all, it was a great place. Grabbed a shirt for me and a visor for my buddy. Thanks BMB!

EDIT: Went back last month, again with my dad to grab a couple growlers for a BBQ the next day. Looks like they expanded by adding a second bar and some additional seating. More taps all around. Great selection. The Hefeweizen is awesome. Embargo was great. Have to give it an uptick in atmosphere. Like the changes.

Black Market has really stepped it up these last 2 years. They used to not have ANYTHING I cared for (save their Rye IPA). Now they're churning out unique releases pretty consistently it seems.

Tasting room is adequate size but not super posh (even for a brewery). I hope they continue to climb upwards and add to the positive beer scene that Temecula is becoming known for.

I made a trip out to Temecula recently since I was down that way for work and stopped in at Black Market. It's a fairly large spot with a tasting bar up front and additional seating and what appeared to be the brewery and barrel room to the right of that. Service was pretty good but the bartender was pretty pushy about pouring me something after I said give me a few minutes. The beers were served in glassware and at a good temperature. They had about 10 beers on tap when I was there along with a cooler full of bottles but nothing that I haven't seen distributed. Prices are reasonable at around $2 for tasters and around $5 to $6 for full pours. I will definitely stop in here again if I am in the area.

Black Market was my first visit on my Temecula brewery tours, self guided. The tasting room is very cool and casual with a giant big screen for everyone to enjoy. The beer selection was fantastic, the only one I didn't care for was the Heffe which is a beer style I don't really like any ways. The staff was fantastic and the prices were fair. The barrel room was really cool as well. Cant wait for some of the babies to be emptied! Count this guy as a fan and I will return!

Black Market is a must stop in the Temecula beer scene.

Oh and get the Black Hole Sun! It is super bomb!

Has the Inland Empire beer scene taken off or what? Wait, is Temecula considered to be part of the IE? Whatever, the region's beer scene has taken off the last few years, and Black Market Brewing is just one snapshot of it.

The tasting room is small, although the building itself has adequate space. There is a backwards "L" shaped bar with room for 10 people, additional spaces for rest one's drink, plastic kegs with bags of malt as seats, merchandise spread over one wall, and empty growlers from other breweries sitting above and behind the bar.

There's a list of beers available from tap, their ABV, price, and what's scheduled to be brewed when. There were seven options during my visit, ranging from the hefeweizen and Anglo-Brown, to a scottish ale, dunkelweizen, and strong hoppy ale. Pints are inexpensive at just $4.50, and tasters can be purchased too. The three beers I tried we're solid...okay, two of them were solid, one of them was simply delish! An attentive bartender was behind the bar, checking up on my status (and others).

I've only seen a few of Black Market's beers at bars, and I came in hope of finding other Black Market beers that I knew I could find only here. It was worth the visit.

I was pretty impressed by this place. Located in an industrial park in Temecula, these guys make some pretty darn tasty brews.

I had a sampler and thoroughly enjoyed their IPAs and a couple of the others as well. I was visiting the are randomly from Northern CA and had never heard of this place. I hope they get their beer out there, it will definitely sell based on it's merits. Very solid.

The space is basically in the warehouse that is the brewpub. Little tasting room with a small bar and a few tables. Pretty standard for the arrangement they have. Service was very friendly. Excellent brewery that most people have probably not heard of. Check it out if you're ever in the area.
