  • Great quality beers at Green Flash! They have many different beer on tap from both the Green Flash and Alpine brands. Most beers here are IPAs, but they have other varieties too. There is also a Green Flash food truck at the facility where you can get some food to eat while you hang out. They are a kid/dog friendly spot too!
  • Bartenders are fast, efficient, and friendly. Beer prices are low, beer quality is over the top. A dangerous place if you like to stay sober. The 5th star would come for hospitality, coziness, more talkative bartenders. My advice: Go if you have a chance.
  • Great beer selection. Pretty good prices, and a delicious food truck in the back yard. Also dog friendly!
  • Great beer selection at a good price. Both Green Flash and Alpine. Food truck available. Atmosphere is okay.
  • My bf and I had the awesome opportunity of taking a private tour with Adam this past weekend. This is a must see place when you are in San Diego, if you enjoy great craft beer. All of the employees are friendly, the beer selection is amazing, and it's truly a learning experience. Adam was so sweet, very welcoming, and incredibly knowledgeable. We left feeling buzzed and even more educated on different types of beer and craft processing. They have great quality food trucks and a nice outdoor seating area. This brewery is worth the drive from wherever you are in the SD area. We absolutely loved the experience and highly recommend it to any locals or tourists.

Where to stay in San Diego
