Great layout, welcoming, friendly place for some drinks after work or to sample a few while watching the game over the weekend. Rip Current has a nice selection of beer, and doesn't do San Diego wrong with its IPA offerings. The stouts, for me, were a bit too sweet and syrupy, but all in all, I enjoyed my experience and would definitely go back.

Stopped during Beer Safari on 78 corridor. Bright cheery high energy brew pub bar and restaurant. Got there on a Sunday afternoon right after the word got out that they had been named best very small brewery at 2015 GABF. Place was hopping, and filling up fast. Had a great time talking with James and swapping stories and many trying many of their beers. Place was very proud of home brewing roots and the local home brew community. Felt pretty honored to be given a gift commemorative bottle of a home brewed beer in honor of a local brewer who had recently passed away.
Very good beers and very good people in an open bright and sunny pub. Highly recommended.

Been here many times, finally decided to rate.

10 minutes away from my mom's where I grew up. Awesome place to stop in to have a couple of nice craft beers. Nice vibe, good quality, good service, and selection.

Small tasting room in an industrial area of North San Diego (in San Marcos). Very mellow crowd on a Saturday afternoon. My wife and I met some people traveling down from LA and had a nice conversation, along with beer tenders. Super friendly service and knowledgeable on beer and other breweries in the area.

Great selection of beers. No food onsite, but someone was BBQ food outside in the parking lot as we left.

Picked up some glasses and a cool metal growler. Added to my list of favorite breweries.

I enjoyed every beer I had while at the tasting room. The barbacks were super nice and knew a lot about the beer.

This is not an ordinary brewery. Awesome staff, great variation on the menu. If you love hops come to rip current. If you don't....come to rip current. Solid awesome beers up and down the menu. The crowd that is attracted here is cool and mellow too. Rip Current rules.
