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.

Mother Earth Brewing is a pretty nice place to visit and drink beer. The crowd looks like mostly locals. Tattoos, dreads, the hair, and alternative dress. There is nothing wrong with that, and I am sure it is going to attract a specific crowd. I'm just saying. The beer at this joint is GOOD. Definitely better on tap then in a bottle. I have the Kimset and the Sin Tax on tap. Two time better on tap. The quality of the place and the beer is top notch. I didn't take to the local scene and the displaced crowed, but didn't mind them. I'm just saying. The service is good and the selection is good. There is no food service here, but the pizza we ordered and received from across the street is world class. I will go back to this location for the pizza. The beers are $5 for the standard pint. I will be back.
