vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 3.5 | selection: 4 | $$

I was confused at first by the parking situation as it's a little cramped and it shares space with other businesses in a strip mall. Once we got fairly safely parked and went in it was surprising to see so many home-brew supplies in one spot. There were high ceilings and big windows and all the walls were lined with Ballast Point Merchandise as well as a lot of brewing supplies. The service was OK, but it could just be the California attitude, I'm not sure. Also it was the first time on my trip from Iowa where I had someone take my ID and put it on a little clipboard and check off how many samples I had, but I guess the laws are much different in California.

4.24/5  rDev -1.6%
vibe: 4.25 | quality: 4 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.25 | $

Atmosphere: Very clean and inviting. There were large amounts of people having fun and enjoying themselves, but it didn't feel overly crowded. You could still easily get to the bar to get your beer. The brewery end was very clearly an active brewery, but still a very nice inviting atmosphere.

Quality: Beer, tours, and souvenirs are high quality

Service: Friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful staff, always felt welcome

Selection: They have a very large number of taps

Value: Reasonably priced on pretty much everything. Actually purchased souvenirs due to the fact that you weren't getting gouged on them. All beer is reasonably priced as well

Overall: This is a must visit brewery in San Diego.
