I'll start off by saying that after 3 days of visiting SoCal microbrews recently, Iron Fist has suddenly jumped into my top 5 brewery list. All-round amazing stuff from what I assume is the youngest commercial brewer in the country.

Poured concrete floor, warehouse-style environment. This is definately a brewery and not a bar, club, or restaurant. In fact, the only food is from a different food truck that parks out in the lot each day.

The good part of that is it means they are concentrating on the beer and not the other crap. I loved the beer here and wholeheartedly encourage folks to go. I would spend a lot of time if I lived in San Diego.

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
