    Each beer taster is only $1! And head outside to their garden, there is always a food truck serving some bomb food (which can help sober you up!). They do close at 9pm, so get there early!

    I personally love the Hop Red. They did a remodel not too long ago and it looks great! Not ideal if you want to sit with your friends but a great spot to grab a beer and kill time.

    IPA beers tastes/smells like pine trees; not really my thing for drinking but some may appreciate it. Trippel tastes like apples/pears...which is more my style. Great cheap beer and awesome place!

    I like it a lot. Food from foodtrack is a little expensive but beer is cheap and really good. Try the ristretto cosmic black lager!

    Such good and consistent beer with a ton available on draft here. Nice outdoor area with rotating food carts for some eats. They do growlers and kegs as well.

    Just a mile away, Green Flash’s enormous tap room is located right in the middle of their brewery. They have food trucks parked outside nightly, so snag a bite & enjoy your beer on the patio!

    Beers made for Hopheads. Worth the visit when making the San Diego Microbrew tour. Large tasting area with local food trucks serving up delicious bites.

    Their beer selection is great and so are their tours! Worth the 5 bucks. They have an in house food truck and the chorizo sliders are amazing!

    No clue what malting, mashing or barrel aging means? Take the brewery tour! It's $5, incl. 4 tasters.

    I really can't stand IPAs, but the West Coast IPA is a bold exception. Follow this up with a Double Stout, then the Barleywine and you're good for the rest of the night.

    $5 brewery tour comes with 4 beer tasters! Reserve a spot online ahead of time and be sure to check out the daily food trucks.

    Lots of great beer on tap. I love IPA's and they must have had near 10 on tap. These folks don't know how to make bad beer.

    Great selection of beers, both their standards and smaller batch beers. Outdoor patio and often there are delicious food trucks.

    Great selection of delicious brews. The food truck outside can provide for some food cushioning for the beer intake. Friendly staff.

    Bad ass brewery with multiple local flares and pleasant choices. Start with a few tasters until you nail down your taste Holmes. 🍻

    Disclaimer: not a massive IPA fan...they have to be pretty special for me to "favorite." My favs from here: 1. Ristretto, 2. treasure chest, and 3. saison Diego.

    Careful when parking on the street. Parking tickets are occasionally passed out. They try to have food trucks every night. Grab a beer, head to the garden and order some food.

    Cool factory vibe to chill and drink good beer in. It can get a bit warm inside so head out to the patio.

    Delicious aromas from the food truck, beer, and urinal. WHAT?! The urinal? Surly you're daffy, you say. While you shouldn't judge me on my avatar, do go in and tell me it doesn't smell of Fruit Loops.

    Awesome tour! Five bucks with four tastings at the end. That's one dollar for the tour. Informative and great beer.

    Everyone makes IPAs in SD...so try their saison or their double stout if you want a feel for their quality.

    4oz tasters for a buck. About 20 beers on. I did not taste them all, but excellent setup. Fantastic IPAs.
