Went 4/3/12, on my spring break tour in San Diego (which was awesome, by the way). Reviewed from memory.

A- The atmosphere was alright. The people there were beer knowledgeable. It was pretty quiet, but a Tuesday afternoon will do that.

Q- The beers were ok, I wanted to try more rare ones on tap, but I had about six tasters and nothing was awful. The Calico was weak however.

Ser- One girl working the bar, but since we called ahead I got a brewery tour with my buddy. That was a blast. Saw the distillery too. This brewery is going to be on the rise very soon. They have a lot of expansion plans and I'll be there to drink the rewards.

Sel- Not great. Ginger Big Eye and Tongue Buckler were the only rare ones there. Wanted Habanero Sculpin or any other hard to find beer. Must not be a great time of the year for the company.

F- No food.

V- Best part of the place. 1-2 dollar tasters for everything, and I got a nice pint glass for 3 dollars.

Brewery was very clean and had outdoor and some indoor seating along with a long bar. Prices were decent for samples. I did not count the amount of taps but there were at least 15 different beers. The bartenders today were training but the brewer was helping them which made for some great conversation about the beers that are not sent to me in New York. Beers were all fresh as hell and my girlfriend and I were very impressed with this place!
