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.

Great spot nestled out yonder. Wish I lived closer! Came on Wing Wednesday..wings were a full wing so they are extra filling. Flight was in a cupcake tin which was clever, and sums up the great character this gem of a brewery holds.

Entrees are not the greatest, but finger foods are pretty good. Last time I ordered a pulled pork sandwich that was OK and my GF got a grilled cheese that was burnt. Fried pickles were damn good though. But we're here for the beer and the atmosphere!
