Visited 2014. Was OK...In a strip mall kind of thing downtown. We had fun. Visited on a Thursday at 4 PM, there as not much going on. as we were the only patrons there. They had two floors so I'm curious what this place is like at 10 PM on a Saturday, but again, its in a strip mall a mile from the beach...

Gosh I loved this place. A bit hard to find coming from Cabo San Lucas without a map...

The decor was so hip and artsy, but still very comfortable at the same time. Dark wood, stone, agave plants and plenty of greenery... very cool, but very homey. Could have spent all day enjoying the place. There was baseball on the TV and the music was pretty good - though not as awesome as the Cabo location.

Service was good. The general manager was very kind, as was the bartender that chatted me up. It was pretty slow, though - late afternoon on a Sunday at the slowest part of the slow season - so I have no idea what it's like when it's busy.

The pizza was excellent. I want their crust recipe! It's made with the spent grains and sprinkled with sunflower seeds.

Prices were reasonable: quite good for the food and beer, but the grower I bought (gonna be in Los Cabos a while and could use some beer to go!) was a bit pricey - 120 pesos for the glass and another 100 for the fill. Not gouging, but not cheap either.

We opened the place up for lunch on a Monday. I started with the sampler that consisted of the Baja Blonde, Negra especial, Oatmeal stout, Peyote Pale Ale, Belgian Wit, and their Homemade root Beer. Now, I have to preface this whole review by saying that I had spent the week drinking Pacifico, Negra Modelo, and Corona...So any decent made beer was going to taste great to me at this point.

The Beers were pretty good. I thought the Oatmeal stout was very good and just what you would expect in an outmeal stout, but it is hard to drink one when it is 85 degrees out. The Baja Blonde, their flagship beer, was just like any other light Mexican pils beer. The Negra Especial is a swartzbeir style lager much like the very popular Negra Modelo. It has a nice malty flavor, but nice and refreshing for the baja climate. The Belgian Wit was my least favorite of their beers. It was an unfiltered wheat beer, but didn't have the fruity flavors that you would like from the style. I think the Belgian Wit is the beer with the greatest potential of their beers, but would like for it to be a little more fruity. My Favorite beer was the Peyote Pale Ale! Maybe because I really just was craving some hops this week, but it was a solid hoppy pale ale style beer.

We had 2 pizza's from the lunch menu. A red sause pizza with basil, garlic, and mushrooms was very good. Maybe a little too much chopped basil on top, but once we picked off some of the basil it was much better. The other pizza was a green pizza (pesto sause) with Artichokes and grilled chicken. It was very good. We thought the food was great.

Located in the art district of San Jose Del Cabo, this is a must go for any beer lover that is visiting the Cabo area, at least so you can have some good beer in between all of the Corona, Pacifico and other Mexican Lagers you will drink while in Cabo.

We visited this brewpub several times during our June vacation in San Jose del Cabo. It's a friendly place with good service located in the art district.

They had six beers on tap. A raspberry lager, a hefeweizen, a blonde ale, a black lager, a brown ale, a red ale and an IPA. While I didn't care for the raspberry lager, all of the beers are well made and tasty. I particularly liked the Peyote IPA. It could have used a bit more finishing hops, but it was still enjoyable, especially when you consider what else is available in the area.

We only had one meal there. We had the pizza for lunch and it was pretty good. The outer crust had grains of malted barley embedded in it. A nice touch. The pizza was baked in an outdoor brick oven.

They were opening a second location in Cabo San Lucas on the day we left. They won't be brewing there. The beer will be brought down in kegs from San Jose.

If you're tired of margaritas and corona, stop by the Baja Brewing Co.
