This was probably my favorite place during my time in San Diego (if it wasn't Alpine). The tap room had a festive atmosphere, although I wish they were open a little later. Their world class beers even tasted better out of the tap than the bottle. I mentioned to the guy next to me how great a particular beer was sitting next to me and he thanked me, saying he was the brewer and then handing me his business card. Without a doubt, I will go back here if in the San Diego area. The service was a little slow only because of the crowd that was there which is the only thing that prevents this from being a perfect score.

A must visit when in SD selection varies and the vibe is ok only because of the seriously overcrowding from these silly brew tours. Most of the drinkers never even heard of AleSmith.
