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... (1,096 characters)

*This review is for the old pub* Atmosphere here is what made it for me. Very laid back and casual. Not much seating but the service is good and the food works perfectly with a pint of Nelson! I haven't been to the new one yet and I'm definitely excited to check it out! (274 characters)

NEW LOCATION:
No longer small with nowhere to park.

Both indoor and outdoor seating. Next to Ace Hardware and plenty of parking. Was there on the 2nd day open at this location and there were a few problems with new space and servers - they'll get the kinks worked out. Hoppy beer is what I went there for and they have plenty of good things to choose from. Was unable to write anything without submitting numbers so keep in mind they represent second day open.

Growler fills still at old location up the hill. (514 characters)

I've been here many times since Alpine Brewing Co. opened. It's about time I gave it a rating. Nice little joint to visit. Little tasting room with limited seating. Quality beer and nice service. Visit the restaurant. (222 characters)

Alpine was the highlight of our 14-brewery San Diego visit. We considered not making the drive out, but we are glad that we did. The waitress suggested the fried pickles and the beans for a side - both were outstanding! Flight of Nelson, Duet, Hoppy Birthday, Pure Hoppiness, San Diego Surprise and Captain Stout rivaled the best we had all trip. Finally, takeaway bottles of Nelson and Duet for $5.49 and $5.99 felt like stealing and the merch was great - I bought the "Duet - all night long!" Tee and a buddy got an Alpine Hat that everybody we saw afterwards commented on! (578 characters)

I make this trek every three months are so. Small seating inside by the bar, but a nice quaint area outside in the patio area when you want to avoid the squeeze. The service is always great and nothing beats fresh Alpine IPAs on draft. Hoppy Birthday, Nelson, Duet, etc... One of the top 5 IPA breweries in the world imo and the growler fills (hit or miss depending on availability) make it well worth the trip. For any visitors from out of state you have to come here and visit. The food is also great as are the sauces. (527 characters)

Great spot nestled out yonder. Wish I lived closer! Came on Wing Wednesday..wings were a full wing so they are extra filling. Flight was in a cupcake tin which was clever, and sums up the great character this gem of a brewery holds. (233 characters)
