Cool place, laid back punk vibe. Great beers and selection, bartender was slammed and ignoring those sitting at the bar due to the long line to order but otherwise great time. Would def go back.

this place came so highly recommended to us that we had to check it out, it seems to be a locals favorite for sure, and if the parking situation on a friday night is any indication, they must be the most popular brewery in town. it was absolute chaos when we walked in here, a smaller place than i thought it would be for how far the word seems to have spread about their beer. we somehow found a couple seats at the bar, but it was mental. some dogs hanging out, standing room only for the most part, a big warehouse sort of space but its all full of tanks, the bar area is tiny, and it was overwhelmed when we were in. they have a sort of colorful comic book aesthetic in here, maybe comics meet punk rock, its all sort of minimal and beer first which i am fine with, but i like the look and the energy in here. they had a pretty solid list, skewing heavy towards hoppy beer, but we had some stuff we really liked, including man overboard hazy ipa, a sangria inspired berliner, and a coconut barrel aged stout ale called nuclear strategy. the beer was worth the hype for sure, not the best we had in san diego though, and the space was almost too loud and busy to be relaxing, which is what i like about visiting breweries, so we didnt stay real long. the service was solid for how busy they were, attentive enough but not a ton of personality. id like to check this place out on a less busy night if there is one, it was hard to hang out here, but its great to see they are so successful and that folks are responding to the great beer they are making. ill be back on a different night next time...

Another cool store front brewery with curb side counter seating. Steampunk, brewery forward. Top notch service and great selection. I look forward to my return visit.

Fall Brewing is located in North Park. It's cool that it's really right between residential housing. A brewery right in the middle of a neighborhood.

It had nice space to it. Tables with chairs with a small bar area. The brewing area was right there and visible. They had a food truck the day I went, so they probably rotate. The server was prompt and courteous.

I tried a taster of three beers. Most were good. I enjoyed the beers with a view to the street.

An interesting lineup of beers and virtually all are very well made. Usually eight or so beers on tap. The Interpretive Dance Squad at 3.5% ABV is amazing. While this is one of my favorite breweries in San Diego, it's actually one of my least favorite places to drink the stuff. Very loud music, utterly spartan hardscape, but you can admire the brewing tanks.

No parking, and it's a little far to walk from El Cajon Blvd and the last outpost of civilization at Tiger Tiger, so it's a better bike expedition. Very dog friendly. Barking and minor scuffles allowed. The last time the food truck parked outside the wall of open windows had such a loud generator, like something was wrong with it. I mentioned it to the bartenders but no one seemed to care.

The walls are adorned with old posters from various concerts around San Diego with a heavy emphasis on post-hardcore from the early 90's. It's definitely unique in that regard. Their beers are good, the people that work there are nice and if you want food you'll need to go somewhere else, but they'll let you bring it inside the brewery. Definitely add Fall as a place to visit if you've never been.

Went there the first week of December on a Sunday night. Had a great time talking to the bartender and other staff. The beer was really good! It kind of feels like a cross between a bar and a brewery because the fermenters are maybe 15 feet from the bar. I like the cask beers and they had a few to try.

They have great beers, casks, hop variations per style, great growlers, and most importantly; FUN.
