Was out there for my bday on a brewery tour in SD and had the better looking tasting room of the 4 breweries I hit that day. Not only was it nce astetically but there was some coo peeps chillin having a good time having fun brewery hoppin as well. The selection was most of their year round brews plus some rotating tap only brews that I was glad to take a stab at since they don't bottle it. All around the brewpub was quality and the people there qwere pretty nice too. Definitely glad I got the chance to visit them and recommend this spot if your down in SD brewery hopping.

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.
