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!

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this place yet. I guess I would like to consider myself some what of a regular, My wife and I try to go here once a week if we can.
The atmosphere fits in with the whole town of Alpine, has a down home feel and is very relaxed. Breweriana fills the walls, and they use other craft brewers empty 6'ers for sauce holders.
The quality of the beer is already well known, with beers like Hoppy Birthday, Pure Hoppiness, Expo, Ugly, Bad Boy, Duet, Nelson, Ichabod, Great, the list goes on. My wife loves the beer mixes.
The Service is outstanding, everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. Its a great place to bring people that you want to introduce to craft beer, they will not get turned off by snobby attitudes and rudeness like so many places.
Already touched on the selection. Don't go here if you are looking for something other then Alpine beers.
The food is reasonably priced and good quality. Its BBQ, menu selection consists of pulled pork, sausage, beef brisket, ribs, salad. The sweet potato fries are great.

Drink Alpine or go to bed.

The pub and the brewery are adjacent so you won't see one without being close to the other. However, if you want to get growlers and/or bottles to go make sure you arrive within the hours that the brewery is open. The pub has a small amount of bottles, but not nearly as many as the brewery room. Note: a 4 bottle per person per day limit is currently in place due to people who own retail liquor stores coming and buying Alpine via retail and then selling it retail--which is illegal. To them--thanks for ruining it for us.

I won't spend time on Alpine's beers because if you're reading this you probably know how amazing they are. I will spend time talking up the amazing servers in the pub and the insanely cheap prices for the quality of the beer. Food prices are reasonable and the food is very good and mainly of the BBQ style. The bathroom is outside in a separated building, which adds to the allure.

In the pub you can get 1oz samples, 5oz pours, 10oz tulips or a pint. I loved this approach because it lets you try a lot of things without drinking so much that you're unable to drive out of there. We visited on St. Patty's day and it was pouring rain, but was still a great time. I would definitely come back anytime I'm in the SD area. It's only like 25min or.

Alpine makes the best IPAs in the world. Its definetly worth the trip to fill growlers and or have a meal in the BBQ house that is now attached. Some of my favorites are: Duet, Nelson, Pure Hoppiness, Exponential Hoppiness, Bad Boy, actually just try them all..
