Its funny, Ive taken the 8 so many times to head to Boulevard, a small town about 40 minutes past alpine, and have never stopped by Alpine Beer till 2 days ago. I almost past it because the place is so small, the only reason why i didn't miss it is because in the small strip mall there's a big sign that says Books.
The pub itself is very small, only room for a few people at the bar, but there are a few tables as well as well as outdoor seating. Nelson, hoppy birthday, pure hoppyness were all on tap as well as Mongo by Port Brewing. The appetizers were all great too, tried out the fried pickles, black and tan onion rings and beer battered fries, all were awesome, too bad i didn't get any of the food, there were some tasty looking things on the menu.
When you step outside the pub 2 doors down is the actual brewery/company store. This is where you can pick up bottles of everything or get a growler fill. the guys here were really funny and were nice enough to give us a few samples before deciding on which growler to pick up.
Will definitely be back soon for a 2nd growler fill...

Stopped in here yesterday on the road back to Arizona, probably my most anticipated stop in the greater San Diego area. Atmosphere was pretty dead when we arrived thanks to it being just after they opened but once some more people showed up it got much better. Quality was quite high, my food and beer were great and the space was well furnished in their signature style. Service was awesome, she spent as much time as she could talking to us and I never had to wait for anything. Selection was a little picked over, they had all of their typical beers on but nothing overly rare. Was really hoping to at least try one of the tap only hoppy beers but it just wasn't meant to be I guess. I went with the brisket sandwich which was excellent. Prices were a touch high on the food but I have no problem paying for quality so it wasn't a huge deal. Overall an awesome little pub with some world class beers to choose from. Glad I could finally check it out, and I hope I can return in the future.
