It's a terrible idea coming here for their Awareness Celebration event on 6/8 after I just had 6 beers in Toronado SD.
I had 2 of their beers before being completely drunk. Got a bottle of their Vanilla Rescue Buoy and a glass placed into my car trunk. They took away my key for the night to have me sober up in my car so I won't drive home to OC completely blacked out. I say thank you for all their staffs for the move. Next day while trying to drive home only to discover my car battery is drained for whatever reason, a nice patron jump cabled my car battery so I would able to get home from this bad night. Thank you sir for I didn't learn your name.
I've been here once before that while this brewery is at its infancy. I would say excellent beers all around, it's not just another gimmicky brewery among seas of up-comings in SD county.

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.
