Great brewery! That is the fist and most important reason to visit this place. Simple interior with small tap room. Many beers to try with an ability to try some of there rare beers as well. Did the tour. It was interesting and pretty engaging as far as brewery tours go.
When we were there they were grilling outside and had some game sausage. Staff is knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

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.
