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.

*This review is for the old pub* Atmosphere here is what made it for me. Very laid back and casual. Not much seating but the service is good and the food works perfectly with a pint of Nelson! I haven't been to the new one yet and I'm definitely excited to check it out!

NEW LOCATION:
No longer small with nowhere to park.

Both indoor and outdoor seating. Next to Ace Hardware and plenty of parking. Was there on the 2nd day open at this location and there were a few problems with new space and servers - they'll get the kinks worked out. Hoppy beer is what I went there for and they have plenty of good things to choose from. Was unable to write anything without submitting numbers so keep in mind they represent second day open.

Growler fills still at old location up the hill.

I've been here many times since Alpine Brewing Co. opened. It's about time I gave it a rating. Nice little joint to visit. Little tasting room with limited seating. Quality beer and nice service. Visit the restaurant.

Alpine was the highlight of our 14-brewery San Diego visit. We considered not making the drive out, but we are glad that we did. The waitress suggested the fried pickles and the beans for a side - both were outstanding! Flight of Nelson, Duet, Hoppy Birthday, Pure Hoppiness, San Diego Surprise and Captain Stout rivaled the best we had all trip. Finally, takeaway bottles of Nelson and Duet for $5.49 and $5.99 felt like stealing and the merch was great - I bought the "Duet - all night long!" Tee and a buddy got an Alpine Hat that everybody we saw afterwards commented on!

I make this trek every three months are so. Small seating inside by the bar, but a nice quaint area outside in the patio area when you want to avoid the squeeze. The service is always great and nothing beats fresh Alpine IPAs on draft. Hoppy Birthday, Nelson, Duet, etc... One of the top 5 IPA breweries in the world imo and the growler fills (hit or miss depending on availability) make it well worth the trip. For any visitors from out of state you have to come here and visit. The food is also great as are the sauces.
