I visited this brewery with my buddy ragingbull. The brewery is in an industrial building and is easy to find due to a well lit sign on the front.
Walking past some offices you come into the production floor of the brewery where there is a huge U shaped bar and wide open floor plan.
Another bar area is in front of some t-shirts and other paraphernalia. behind the bar are large easy to read signs as to what is on tap, which amounts to everything the bar has to offer, approximately 20 beers. Many staff members are on hand to take orders, 1 oz samples, 8 oz pours or full pints are available. Growlers to go and bombers, 6 packs I think even sixtels and kegs out the door if you want.
The staff are very knowledgeable and answered our questions with ease. Lots about the various types of oak barrels aging brews juston the other side of the bar. We had samples of the black IPA, barleywine, rayon vert, and la freak. All were quite tasty. Left with bomber of barleywine and growler of black IPA.
Definitely worth a stop when in San Digeo. No food minus a truck parked outside and I think you may be able to bring in your own grub if you wanted since there are some picnic tables outside.
Stop in and try some beers.

Been here 3 times. Two times during normal operation and for Treasure Chest 2015. Treasure Chest was a well run event with a good variety of beers and food to pair with them. Each staff member that I have encountered were very pleasant.

Hit there midweek in the afternoon. Not too crowded but also no place to sit in a large open room at one end of the brewery. Bar service was good and very informative about the 28 beers they had on tap at the time including some from Alpine.
Great place to check out a large selection of their beers but nothing special.

I am starting to get really tired of tap rooms without anywhere to sit. My mind flashes back to that movie with Joe Namath eating food, as he pretends to shop, as he walks through some second rate grocery store. Having to stand to enjoy a beer probably lessen the quality of beer but who really knows, just thinking out loud.

What a great place for a beer. Really nice vibe and a great selection of beers, including the newly acquired Alpine Brewery. I went for the tour, $5 with 4 tastings. We had West Coast IPA, Hop Red, Le Freak and the Stout. The guide was informative and have lots of history with basic breeding information. There is a food truck parked at the door, unfortunately I did not partake.
