Went in early (1130) on a sunny Saturday. The place has awesome atmosphere with a very little space but tons of character. A nice straight forward bar is up against the back with some tables and then some booths on the opposite side. The quality of brew is as always impressive. All their IPAs are among the bests and the pal ales and stouts aren't far behind. On this day they had just brewed Odin's Raven a very nice chocolaty and roasty Imperial Stout which I only tried and now am sad I didn't get a growler. Service was great the waitress was friendly and engaging. They got busy a bit after service suffered a bit but this can be expected because the place got really busy. Food was delicious but the beer is always the highlight. I had the Hoppy Birthday on cask and had the Bad Boy DIPA to finish the lunch off. Awesome.

My first time up to Alpine did not disappoint. The pub was sort of cramped--as it was pretty busy--but, it still had a nice inviting atmosphere. Despite the crowd and the size of the pub, it wasn't suffocating. The menu consisted of a fairly standard pub course, but the taste and quality was outstanding. Of course, the beer was fantastic.

Stopped by here on a beautiful sunny day while driving to Julian.
Walked in on a wed afternoon and to our delight it was wing/pitcher wednesdays, $1.50 whole habanero honey wings that were amazingly tasty and $13 pitchers WOW.
Started with a 4ct taster; Duet, Nelson, Pure Hoppiness and Laupulin Star.
All amazing and complex brews. Settled in with a pitcher of Duet and a couple pints of Nelson which I dont need to tell you is all that and a bag o chips.
Great small town atmosphere, attentive servers who know the beer, and not a hipster douche bag vibe of any kind. Employees were also very welcoming and friendly on the brewery side where they offer growler fills and bottles to take home.
Great beer+great food+great atmosphere= Alpine Beer Company.
Drink Alpine Beer or go to bed!

Beers are great and they have a lot of them on tap (Duet, Nelson, Bad Boy, Pure Hoppiness, San Diego Surprise, BA Odin's Raven, and more).
Food was pretty dang good too (had the bbq pork sandwich)
Prices are reasonable
Only negative was the wait to get seated - I would say get to the restaurant when they open (11am) if you need to do an early lunch or go at like 2pm after the lunch rush if you have to go on a weekend. We went at noon and had to wait a while but by the time we left it started to die down.
Overall it was worth the drive from San Diego and I will be going back.
