4.86/5  rDev +10.7%

Went out of my way to stop here on a drive to San Diego. Glad I did.

The atmosphere was really cool. The barrel room was awesome (especially with all of the barrels labeled), the unique bar stools (kegs with a bag of grain on top) were also a near touch. The on-tap list was formidable, including offerings from both Lost Abbey and Port Brewing. $1 tasters was a great deal too. The bottle list was also great and included a few gems.

The service was second to none as well. Friendly, knowledgeable and just great people all round. Was purchasing a couple of bottles on the way out and was deciding how many bottles of Older Viscosity to buy when the woman there (her name escapes me now) just opened one up right there and tasted it with it. It was outstanding!

My only complaint, albeit it a minor one, is that there were none of the really rare beers on tap (the ones that usually cost $3 per taste). But there were so many others to try that I was not going to lose sleep over that...

I tried Mongo IPA, Serpent's Stout, Santa's Little Helper and Older Viscosity. I wish I had more time to stay and drink.

A MUST VISIT if passing through the area.
