The Green Flash Brewery was defiantly not what I was expecting. Surrounded by huge business buildings and corporate parks the brewery is nestled inside a business park just off a main drag in a northern park of SD. It was down pouring when we got there so there wasn't many folks around even for a Friday afternoon (close to happy hour), but there ere about a dozen or so 'business casual' gentleman and ladies unwinding after a hard day in the office.

The brewery was extremely clean, almost to the point that I was questioning if beer was actually brewed at this location, but alas. it was. I got a flight of very hoppy fresh beers (some one off's I've never seen before). PalateWrecker was the freshest I've ever had it and far better then the bottled version I'd had previously. The bar tender was gracious about answering a few questions on what was in the barrels on the wall (saisons mostly) and the other staff on hand where nice (even talked to a brewer at the door before running into the rain)

There was a food truck but skipped it in lou of our next stop. In all I'm glad we wen't, but can't say I'd ever make a return visit.

Not sure why I never got around to reviewing Green Flash after my last SoCal microbrews trip there. Along with Iron Fist and Stone, this place has made San Diego a beer lovers city. All-round great stuff here.

Like most of the newer breweries I've been to in SD, they have a warehouse feel that make you feel you are in a brewery and not a bar. However, I visited about 2 years ago, so they may have changed the decor since then. Food, at that time at least, was via food trucks.

Great beer with very mellow vibe. Unless increased popularity and notoriety has changed the place, I would definitely recommend.

my brother thinks it is a watery IPA. I wouldn't be so harsh, but nothing seems to be amazing.
