I visited this brewery with my buddy ragingbull. The brewery is in an industrial building and is easy to find due to a well lit sign on the front.
Walking past some offices you come into the production floor of the brewery where there is a huge U shaped bar and wide open floor plan.
Another bar area is in front of some t-shirts and other paraphernalia. behind the bar are large easy to read signs as to what is on tap, which amounts to everything the bar has to offer, approximately 20 beers. Many staff members are on hand to take orders, 1 oz samples, 8 oz pours or full pints are available. Growlers to go and bombers, 6 packs I think even sixtels and kegs out the door if you want.
The staff are very knowledgeable and answered our questions with ease. Lots about the various types of oak barrels aging brews juston the other side of the bar. We had samples of the black IPA, barleywine, rayon vert, and la freak. All were quite tasty. Left with bomber of barleywine and growler of black IPA.
Definitely worth a stop when in San Digeo. No food minus a truck parked outside and I think you may be able to bring in your own grub if you wanted since there are some picnic tables outside.
Stop in and try some beers.

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.
