A- Cool little brewery. They make the most of a small space, they have a nice long bar right in the middle of their brewery. It gets kinda crowded but I guess that's what happens when you have good beer.

Q- Beer quality is top notch, really good stuff

S- Service is good once you get up to the counter and get help but it sometimes takes a while, the cards they use to keep track of you samples is a little odd too, but it works.

S- I wish they had more stuff in bottle, and I hope they get a handle on bottle quality control as the Primordial I had on tap was AMAZING, but in bottle THUMBS DOWN< The overall selection on tap is really nice, and the board has some great info for the beer nerds to really learn about each of their brews.

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.
