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.

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.
