Stopped by here while in North County for Pizza Port's Strong Ale fest. No food here, but most people brought in pizza from Urbn across the street, or mexican from next door. Nice patio which would be nicer if it got some sun on it.

Now let's get to the beers. I got the flight of 6 tasters for 10 bucks and honestly I was quite underwhelmed. I think I saw a house pale ales and no less than 3 IPAs on a tap--of 8-10 beers, 3 IPAs? I realize this is the west coast, but I thought this was nothing less than ignorance to all the other amazing styles of beer that should be brewed. Yes, the beers were all very different. One was cloudy and yellow and looked spot on for a hefeweizen, but at ~4% alcohol had no business being as aggressively hopped as it was and completely missed the mark for an IPA. The pale ale was clearly a SNPA knock off, and the other was more of an english inspired IPA. There was a run of the mill brown ale and an even more run of the mill porter in the flight. A non-descript irish red ale rounded out the 6, and it didn't leave any impression on me.

If they expand their selection, I might come back while in north county. I wouldn't go out of my way to come here, but if you're doing a beer tour along the 78 you might as well check it out.

First time going to this brewery, although my friends frequent here often. They had a lot of space, and although it wasn't too busy when I was there, I am told that it gets pretty packed almost every night. The staff was super friendly, and they had a great selection of beers. I've only ever seen a half dozen Mother Earth brews in store and I live about 6 miles from the brewery, but they had at least a dozen available for pours, including a barrel aged stout that was pretty tasty. I would definitely recommend this spot for the vibe and selection.

This is one of, if not, the best beers in San Diego therefore the world. Their tasting room in Vista is loud and can get crazy busy but the beer is awesome. You can order pizza from the restaurant across the street and they will deliver to the tasting room. Pizza is also outstanding.
