Located in an upscale, old town neighborhood, Mother Earth has a vibrant social scene without being overbearing or pretentious. The location is ideal for social gatherings or for a simple tasting. Food isn't served, but one can order pizza from a booth on premises, walk across the street for take out, or bring whatever food is desired. This brewery has a wide variety of above average beers, and a handful of near excellent IPAs. Definitely worth the trip. A neighborhood gem.

First time going to this brewery, although my friends frequent here often. They had a lot of space, and although it wasn't too busy when I was there, I am told that it gets pretty packed almost every night. The staff was super friendly, and they had a great selection of beers. I've only ever seen a half dozen Mother Earth brews in store and I live about 6 miles from the brewery, but they had at least a dozen available for pours, including a barrel aged stout that was pretty tasty. I would definitely recommend this spot for the vibe and selection.

This is one of, if not, the best beers in San Diego therefore the world. Their tasting room in Vista is loud and can get crazy busy but the beer is awesome. You can order pizza from the restaurant across the street and they will deliver to the tasting room. Pizza is also outstanding.
