I used to live in Scripps Ranch, and this place fits in well there. Nice atmosphere, many locals. The quality of the beer is grade A, but unless I wasn't paying attention last month, is limited to only Ballast Point beers. The service is typical tasting room/bar service. Not good nor bad. I didn't try the food, but every time I have visited, there has been either a food truck or a food tent set up. I am sure the food is fantastic, especially after you drink a couple Grapefruit Sculpin. The value is on par with all of the other amazing tasting rooms in and around town.

Overall, this is a great place to visit and drink outstanding beer.
