This is a fun, hidden gem in the industrial forests of Vista, about 4.5 miles from our home. An unassuming attached industrial facility at the end of a cul de sac yields an intimate tasting room right smack in the middle of the brew floor. Food trucks grill up culinary pairings with the diverse round of taps. Very friendly staff; the local feel is palpable. Very happy this up-and-comer (they were founded in late 2012) is getting some well-deserved attention.

I was very impressed with this relatively new outfit known as Belching Beaver. The tasting room is very well themed with Beaver related puns on signs, which normally would seem too low brow for me, but it fits a friendly drinking environment nicely. There was plenty of seating, and it was very busy. Even though there were probably more people than the fire code would allow, I was able to get my beers very promptly from two friendly servers. I have to give props to these servers; they just seemed to be switched into high gear and were still very composed, dealing with the crowds.

The beers were good to excellent, with IPAs in a West Coast style, and some really good sweet/milk stouts, one with peanut butter added was especially good. My only complaint was that there were no higher ABV beers over 8% or more. The lineup was mostly beers I can buy in bottles, so a few more special beer taps would be welcomed.

Overall, other than dealing with a very noisy, and party hardy, crowd, I would frequent Belching Beaver quite a bit.
