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.

Large corner location.
About 30 beers available, many of which are not available elsewhere.
Not inexpensive, but high quality beer and food.
Beer flights 3/$5 are available and popular.
Standard and innovative beers spanning a large variety of styles.
Weak spots are: too loud and can be hard to park.
