A warehouse type building, a little bit off the main highway and somewhat difficult to locate. Crowd isn't the most beercentric. Sometimes you get to see the entertaining snowboard poser talk tough w/ his friends having his back, not realizing he is about 2 minutes from getting his butt handed to him in the parking lot by a professional mma lightweight who is in Mammoth to train for a fight and his buddies no longer have his back. True story. High-larious karma at work.

Anyways, the quality of their beers are average, a good stout, dipa & ipa, very good barleywine. A prior review mentioning the butterscotch flavor of the lines is spot on. I couldn't believe how inferior their ipa's were on tap, compared to when I've drank them out the can/bottle. Unbelievable. Employees were friendly and all, even if not the most knowledgeable, always willing to pour you a sample. Gear is way overpriced, I'll never understand why some breweries charge you so much to advertise their brand?

Not the most worthy beer destination under the status quo. Worth checking out the Charleywine though, as this is the only place I've seen it for sale in bottles.

My ratings do not reflect how much I liked this place. They do demonstrate how ratings do not translate to a recommendation. Hopefully, though, it will be obvious that I like this place and would return on the outside chance that I am ever in Mammoth Lakes, California again in the future.

They specialize in sours, and I tried four of them over the course of the week in Mammoth. Their AIPA is just OK. I never got to the others, even though I know we had a Porter at one time.

The vibe is whatever you make it since they do not wait tables. You can't call it service at all. The food is separate (you walk up and order) and it is tasty just like the brew side of things.

I do not like the format of the bar and restaurant or the lack of service but still recommend it for good food and drink. Heck, I bought a Highest brewery t-shirt. It wouldn't be so difficult to wait tables for customers who prefer service.

Well priced aged beer. You tried the rest this is the best. So flavorful you just might slap your girlfriend! Ages so well but taste so good it's hard to do so. Find it drink it, try to save one if you can! This beer will not disappoint you.

First time to the new location, and quite the difference! My favorite thing about the old place was the bathroom sink handles having Vise Grips for leverage. Nothing like that here! Beautiful inside and out, great large biergarten outside with an awesome tap truck. Great food, great beer, and everyone looked happy. Love Mammoth. Cheers!

Located right off the main drag, the brewery has a beautiful tasting room and eating area with large windows over looking the surrounding mountains. Inside there's an array of flagship beers, as well as 4-5 special offerings. The beers are solid and clean. The food is quite tasty (cant go wrong with local beef) and service is usually pretty quick.

Great place to hang out after hiking the PCT. The server was very helpful and knowledgeable of the production of the beers served and their were 12 different offerings on tap. I certainly hope I get another chance to visit.

Very nice location in the heart of Mammoth with a killer view. Never been in there during peak hours, but always a few people around. Friendly knowledgeable staff and solid beer on tap. Limited releases are always good.

I have been to both the old and new facility, new facility wins hands down. Mammoth is a four seasons town so come winter this would be an inside deal 100%, but I went late summer/early fall, so sitting outside was still enjoyable. On a busy intersection, although a little removed from the actual corner, so the limited traffic was not disruptive. No food options here. Clean/functional bathrooms. Friendly/courteous staff, at least when we went. A nice selection of brews on tap, but no guest list (no problem since I wasn't there for the guest list). Parking options ample. Nice view into the sierras, and that fresh mountain breeze. Multiple levels could pose a problem for the physically disabled. An overall good, and relaxing experience. Somewhere between 3.5-3.75. Hope this helps. Cheers.
