Alesmith has it right with this establishment, sure I would like to see food there everyday but they focus on great beer. Not a restaurant.

The atmosphere is classy and different than most breweries you will go to in San Diego. This is where they brew and bottle not just serve up there fine beers. So you have the opportunity to pick there brains about what goes into there beers. The people serving you beers here know what they are talking about because they are at the source of the creation.

Of course the quality of the beers are fantastic, but they also serve several one-off beers that aren't bottled. As well as some fantastic weekly cask offerings.

The selection is the array of there beers which they offer $1 four ounce pours of there brews.

Weekends they have local food carts come in to serve up good local variety.

My favorite thing about Alesmith is that they fill your corny keg at a good price, not many places I've seen do this. It is a deal breaker for me.

Keep it up Alesmith!

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.
