Honestly I'm interested why they cost so much. Truly not worth it. Just hops shoved in a bottle to call it a beer.

By far, the best tap room I've been to. Odd location in the middle of a residential area but tons of Taos, experimental brews, great patio and grilling outside

I really enjoyed stopping at Ballast point in San Diego. Had a Nitro pineapple sculpin on tap, which was delicious. Not very big inside, but had a grill and nice bench seating on the patio. Had a very nice selection and everyone was friendly. I would come here over and over when in the area.
