I didn't try the food and only had one beer here, mostly because the selection really underwhelmed.

When I visit a brewery I look forward to finding brews that I couldn't pick up in a gas station or that are made especially for the brewery. I didn't find much of that at this location, with a gose---which was nice---being the one exception.

The space itself was massive and felt like visiting Jurassic Park's theme world. Big old gift shop, wide-open interior and theme park feel. Service was pretty impersonal.

Not a place I'd revisit, I don't think.

First off they have some classy bathrooms. Stopped in for some fresh beer and some late xmas gifts. Truly awesome selection. Bought some growlers and the gut helping me could not have been nicer. Will make this a regular stop on my trips to San Diego.

Place overall was just really cool. Unfortunately I couldn't stay as long as I would have liked, had plans. But the atmosphere and deco were amazing, food was great and the beer selections were interesting. Things available I can't get back home so I got to try them.
The place is quite large though and a bit confusing, not something to deduct from the experience but just making note of it.

This is like Willy Wonka's factory for beer. Tons of awesome variations. Mocha IPA, golden stout, and other very unique brewpub only taps. Food was world class as well, though pricey. I consider this a must stop if in SD.
