AleSmith is another of several San Diego breweries that have a tasting area in the adjacent open space of the brewery itself. However, AleSmith outdoes places like Green Flash and Ballast Point by attending to the aesthetics of the tasting area. The bar is L-shaped with a few bourbon barrels strewn around the floor for tables. The layout is geometrically appealing and the colors and stainless steel contribute nicely to the aesthetics. There is a narrow bar that parallels the stack of bourbon barrels in the front, offering more surface area for sitting your beer. Flights are available to taste any or all of the beers on tap, of which there is an ample variety. The staff are very helpful, accommodating, friendly, and quite knowledgeable. Very charming for a brewery tasting room. And, of course, the beers are magnificent. The Vietnamese Coffee Speedway--dear Lord!

This is a small little tasting room in a warehouse and office area that is pretty easy to find. Lots of grey concrete and dark woods here as there were a few hitops to stand around and sample beers. Some barrels decorate one wall and souvenirs on another. The bar area is L shaped but is for standing only.
13 beers were available on this trip, the standard offerings plus 3 specialties. The beers I had were super fresh and delicious. Picked up a t shirt and a bottle to go. A very enjoyable stop.
