Nice, friendly spot with a lot of room. Good vibe, I can only say a little about this place, I was in for one and left. Only because I had a prior engagement and thought I stop in since it was near by. Looking forward to stop in again and have a few. Looks like you can bring in your favorite food or purchase something from the lunch trucks scheduled.

I've visited Dale Bros Brewery in Upland, CA on two occasions now and the word that comes to mind is lackluster. On my first visit I tried a mango IPA which tasted cloyingly sweet and chemically artificial. I couldn't even focus on the flavors of the beer because I was so distracted by the taste of mango extract; it was that prominent.
Visited again this past weekend and tried their Run-Away IPA. Not terrible or extremely flawed, just pedestrian and unmemorable. None of the flavors popped, it seemed sort of muddled and dark. No food served inside, but there was a couple of cute hippie type girls selling vegan fare from a tent on the patio. They seemed unhappy and hesitant to give out samples to customers who wondered what vegan food would taste like; a bad misstep on the part of these vendors because the guys ended up not getting any food since they couldn't taste it first.
Sipped off my girlfriends beer, which was a beer mixer. Dale Bros has a menu of mixed beers from their tap and she had ordered the barleywine and stout mix, which was fairly interesting. Other than the mixers, there is nothing terribly innovative or interesting going on here. I'd rather spend my hard earned money on a brewery that not only brews well, but brews interesting as well.

I recently stopped in at Dale Brothers since I was in the area on business. It's a fairly large spot with the brewing equipment and tasting area in a business park location. They had 8 of their beers on tap when I was in there. The quality of the beer was good with the beer served at a good temperature and in proper glassware. They offer tasters, full pours, and growlers for their beer. Prices were reasonable for the tasters with a price of $7 for 4. Service was pretty good, and the bartenders were able to answer my questions about the beer even though it got pretty busy. Overall, this is a pretty solid place with a good vibe but the beers aren't all that great.
