4.08/5  rDev -6.2%
vibe: 4 | quality: 4.25 | service: 4.25 | selection: 3.75

Vibe - Nice place. Nothing fancy. Located in a generic industrial park (very common in San Diego), the bar shares space with the brewing equipment. The look is stark/industrial. Very simple. Very honest.

Quality - Very good beer. I noticed that the pint glasses in front of the patrons all had a tremendous amount of lacing (a good sign).

Service - My bar tender, Shannon, was helpful, friendly and knowledgable.

Selection - Good selection (homegrown only). Cask ale on Thursday. No food other than the free popcorn.

Overall - I appreciate these smaller breweries. Very similar, in look and feel, to Helm's Brewing Company across town.

Great brewery! Actual brewing process is visible to the tasting room which adds to the brewery experience. Great décor, not too over-the-top, clean, and parking easy.

Came in here for a couple of tasters. Didn't bring cash, and after the bartender, Melissa, poured me the tasters she said that they have $8 minimum on credit card charges(!). She refused to accommodate and insisted that I buy a bottle or use their ATM with a $2 charge. Most breweries I go to don't have this limitation. She eventually reluctantly accepted my card, but my experience was spoiled. A customer that overheard our conversation barged in and started arguing with me. I can't say that I'll never come to this brewery again or buy their beer - one bad bartender does not represent an entire business - but it will be a long time before I return.
