I've been here twice. Haven't been since they fixed the air conditioning, but must say that the alpine brewpub is one of the best off the beaten path spots in San Diego.
The food is decent, but the beers are the main attraction. They usually have the hits on tap (duet, pure hoppiness) and some more rare beers that don't come in bottles (chez monieux y chez monmiex--at least the time I went!)
I have the inkling that this is the spot to taste the barrel aged token when its near release. I am also looking forward to some of the different styles that the head brewer was mentioning a couple of months ago that he is aging in the barrels.
I would highly recommened going to the pub, and promptly going next door to the brewery and getting a few bottles to take home. And if you are lucky enough to live a short drive, get a growler and get it filled every weekend!
No growler fills at the brewpub though!

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.
