Was out for the Lost Abbey anniversary, figured we'd make the jaunt out to Alpine the day before. Kinda difficult to see, just looks like a run down tiny strip mall location. Its really just Alpine's bar and brewery, with a book shop sandwiched in between. Was amazed how tiny and homely it all was, kind of a plus in my book.

We were the first ones in. Service was good, loved the back patio. Very cool. A little bit of garden, backyard vibe, with a bunch of kegs off to the side. The beer is top notch, enjoyed some Ugly & that huge imperial stout with the chocolate syrub, Odin's Raven or something like that, excellent beer. Picked up a bottle of Nelson and Emerson to go. Then picked up a growler of Hoppy Birthday and a father's day tshirt for dad. Enjoyed it. Just wish they were able to keep more of a selection available, but maybe next time I'll get to try some Great, Good, Chex, Ned etc. . . timing is everything.

Anyways, I'd recommend you check it out if you have the time.

The Alpine Pub is located several blocks down the street from the brewery/tasting room. It's located in a shopping center and lots of space inside and out. The bar area is to the left after you enter the building. The tap list was very similar to what they had at the tasting room.

I didn't order any food. Next time. I hear it's very good.

The server was very nice and friendly. I asked what they had beer-wise for me to take home, as I didn't know what the difference was between the tasting room and their pub. At the pub, they sell Alpine 6-packs to go.

Alpine is located 30 miles east of San Diego and is a small town up in the mountains. The taproom is very comfortable with plenty of high quality IPA's on tap. The staff is very friendly and the beer from the tap is noticeably better than what you may have access to in a bottle shop (which is saying something because the bottles are always good too).

The old pub was awesome. Cool vibe, lots of good tunes playing. Ordered some samples and went out back to sit on picnic tables and enjoy the weather and tunes. Lots of owners with dogs chillin back there. Service was great, all the guys I chatted with were extremely nice and helpful. Could have stayed there all day.

The new pub/restaurant was alright. Had a 45 minute wait for a table on a Saturday at 2:45 PM. Wasn't thrilled with that so we looked inside for a seat at the bar. There are maybe 10 seats, all filled. So, decided to go to the grocery store next door and at a sandwich and bought some beers to enjoy at tables out front.

Loved the old place, new place would probably be cool during non peak times.

Quite different inside now, was here in late October 2014 and this place had tables and chairs like a regular little pub and now it's just a empty room with a bar in the corner by the cooler. Reminds me of the Tree House Brewing Co. in Monson, MA now without the brewery equipment sitting there. But, on the upside, the way upside, more quality offerings and a much bigger selection.

I visited here while staying out in Coronado a couple of days ago and it was a good 45 minute drive. It is located in a strip mall and unless you are on Beer Advocate, I don't think you would know what you were getting into. It was a Thursday shortly after opening. I ordered a pint of Hoppy Birthday to start and then moved onto a sampler of 4 beers that were all delicious IPA's. The 4 oz samples were just right and there is an option to get 6. They even have a list of mainly other California made guest bottles (perhaps for the locals?!) I had the beef brisket sandwich with house made mac & cheese. The sandwich was fantastic and the sauce had a light bit of heat. My wife ordered the filet with blue cheese on top and it was also excellent. The service was great.
