  • Not all to my taste: Too strong and too "hoppy". It is difficult to find a beer with less than 5% alcohol. Strength of flavour and alcohol is not everything. Subtlety can add character to beers. Been ...  more »
  • Not the best but well worth the stop. We liked the porters the best. In a light industrial park with enough parking. Easy going and pleasant staff and clients. Room for larger parties. Check it out.  more »
  • We were guests of my wife's oldest son in Carlsbad/Oceanside and he took us to Iron Fist for a few beers before dinner out. What a great place, friendly people and a wide range of beers including some...  more »

  • Iron Fist is a great brewery that offers a wide selection of hand crafted beers. The atmosphere is warm and friendly; a perfect place for an end of day beverage. There is also usually a food truck or food vendor every day, along with an occasional musical performance by some locals. For beer connoisseurs: Iron Fist offers the best growlers in North County. Even if you are just here for a visit or vacation, I would recommend picking one up as a collectors item. They are beautifully designed, and highly durable. Worth the money. Best Times to avoid the crowd: If you can, head there a little before 4p on any weekday. You will get there before a good amount of people show up. And on a nice sunny day, I recommend snagging a couple of seats on the outside patio with the Renegade Blonde.
  • Easy to find parking but a little tricky to find if it's your first time. Wonderful Belgian style ales. Plenty of places to find a seat to enjoy your brew on the inside.
  • The crew is always friendly and the beer is top shelf. #1 in my book of must see brew houses in SD
  • Best local brew, incredible depth and maturity of their brews. My second choice is in another county.
  • I liked it so much I wrote about this Brewing Co. in my Futuristic Novel. Rush down and get the Mint Stout before they run out. Also try the Russian Imperial Stout. I must admit I like Wheaton's Woot stout a bit better, but Wheaton doesn't have a place to hang out in Vista like this one. Probably the most relaxing and dog-friendly pub I've ever been to, except for one on the outskirts of Prague. But that's another story.
