Hess is by far the coolest place to go grab a honest pint of beer. It's hidden away in a small garage like complex about a block or two from Alesmith. The workers there are super friendly and the customers are hardcore Hess fanatics as well.

This 'brewery' is a true nano establishment. It's kinda neat to know that the beer you are drinking there was brewed for the tasting room only, since the batches are such small in size.

A highlight of Hess is their Friday afternoon club which usually happens every month or so. They have a band playing and some food trucks or caterers selling food. Such a cool vibe with all of the locals coming together to support such a small brewery.

If they have it on tap, try the Trinitas, my favorite brew there. Ok enough talk, I'm going to get my prowlers filled up at Hess now. Just take my word... If you're in the area for Green Flash, Alesmith or Ballast Point, be sure to visit Hess.

The tasters are all $2 and are served in a plastic cup, like at a small beer festival. A taster should be $1 and served in a glass cup. There are few places to drink your beer, and the bartenders don't show much enthusiasm for talking about their craft. None of the beers left an impression on me.
