Iron Fist is a good place to get a fresh draft in the Vista-Carlsbad area of North County San Diego. On tap is a decent selection of house beers. Average prices of about $5/pint as of December 2012. Beer is served in a plain glass at about 55 degrees (my guess).

Typical micro brewery ambiance. Standing room with stools and round tables. About 5 well-behaved patrons were there on Christmas Eve (weekday afternoon).

Limited parking is available in the industrial park's lot. It's easy to get there off Sycamore from either 78 of Palomar Airport Road and to find with GPS.

Very friendly staff and a cool atmosphere. Was in town on business and hung at the bar and talked with staff and regulars for a couple hours. Recommended.

This is a very nice small spot. The staff was as good as the beer.

Very dog friendly, Good beer selection, Casual atmosphere, different foodies almost everyday.

Not a fan of bitter beers and this place is a good match for me. a couple are sweet but most are either farmhouse or IPAS
