I stopped in here prior to the Lost Abbey Barrel Night as I wanted to make the drive to San Diego worth my while. Plus, these guys had opened up not long before and I wanted to check them out.

The brewery is located in sort of a secluded part of a business park, almost all the way in the back corner. They have a pretty decent open space with some tables along with a bar along with stools. All the beers are listed on a chalk board along with some "coming soon" and other brewery news, which was nice.

They had five beers on-tap, almost all Belgian styles with the exception of their kolsch. The beers were okay for the most part. Nothing that really wowed me, but none were just flat out awful either.

All of the people working their were incredibly nice. From my brief conversation, it seemed like it was a family operation with the owner being a Polish fellow and his wife helping him out.

These guys also seemed to have learned what people go nuts for quite early on. They already have a barrel aged imperial stout (in Brandy barrels, I believe), and a "wild" barrel aged Saison.

Could be interesting to see what these guys do. I'll have to come back at some point.
