I've been here twice. Haven't been since they fixed the air conditioning, but must say that the alpine brewpub is one of the best off the beaten path spots in San Diego.
The food is decent, but the beers are the main attraction. They usually have the hits on tap (duet, pure hoppiness) and some more rare beers that don't come in bottles (chez monieux y chez monmiex--at least the time I went!)
I have the inkling that this is the spot to taste the barrel aged token when its near release. I am also looking forward to some of the different styles that the head brewer was mentioning a couple of months ago that he is aging in the barrels.
I would highly recommened going to the pub, and promptly going next door to the brewery and getting a few bottles to take home. And if you are lucky enough to live a short drive, get a growler and get it filled every weekend!
No growler fills at the brewpub though!

Great place. Little mountain town about thirty minutes east of San Diego. Pub is located just a few doors down from brewery. Get your growlers at the brewery and get some great food and beer on tap at the pub. People are mostly very friendly. The beer alone is worth the trip but the food makes it an awesome experience.

Great beer! Good food! Overall having to patio to wait for a table and to just have a beer is a major plus. The food is upscale "pub food." The service has always been good, and the atmosphere is what you would expect from a mountain-esque pub.
EDIT- Open the brewery on Sundays!

I love this place and I am not even a big IPA fan. The beers speak for themselves...no one can dispute that ABC makes some pretty incredible beers. From Exponential Hoppiness, to Captain Stout, to Odin's Raven to the mother of all beers...GREAT--the best barrel aged barley wine I have ever had.
The food here is BBQ. Don't expect to come here for a wrap or sushi or anything healthy. This place makes a killer Pulled Pork BBQ sandwich and beer battered onion rings.
The bartenders are awesome and incredibly knowledgable about beer. They are friendly and quick to serve you some of the finest beer in SD County.
It does get pretty busy on Friday nights and on weekends. It is a small joint that can hold maybe 40 people tops. So have patience and head down to the brewery about 50 feet to the west if your table isn't ready right away.

What can I say that others have not already said below?
The pub is awesome. Great people, great food and as always great beer. Yes it is not very big but that just means you have to get there earlier. They sell bottles of Alpine to go right in the pub. The bqq/food and everything else on the menu is very good. I love seeing tourists get a flight of Alpine beer. Every sip they take they usually love every beer.
This place is worth checking out. Just get there at a good time to get a table. Weekends are very busy. Busy means that they are doing something right.

Alpine Brew Co. Is about a 30 mile (60 RT) bicycle ride from my house in central San Diego. On a hot or cold day its worth the trip. I have never driven there, but i really should so i can bring home some bottles and growlers. The Tasting room and bbq house are separated by a christian book store, which is disappointing but after having a few Duets you can retire to their back patio garden and forget about all the crazy people in the world.
They always have a great tap selection in the tasting room and restaurant, the bbq is excellent. Some of my favorite beers in San Diego, maybe even the best IPAs. I recommend Alpine to everyone who likes beer and BBQ, especially if they enjoy riding bicycles.
The only disappointments, I drove up once with my wife and our dog and they said we could not sit on the patio with the dog, so we had to drive back to the city for lunch, then i road up 2 weeks later and there were 3 dogs on the patio. They have a limit of 4 tasters, in the tasting room, but unlimited in the restaurant.

Alpine had Nelson, Pure Hopiness, Magnificent 7, and Duet on tap when I arrived. They were some of the best IPA's I've ever had the pleasure in drinking. Between how fresh the beers were and the atmosphere of being secluded in the mountains around random people are some if the nicest and most inviting people you'd ever meet, I recommend for everyone to try to make it here! Their grilled cheese is spectacular as well!

Dragged the wife and our four month old daughter here on a trip to Los Angeles. Just about a two hour trip from Irvine. Well worth it if you have the time.
Very unassuming little place right off the highway. Blink and you probably miss it. They have a beer store and pub/taproom separated by a couple shops including a book store and hair cut place. Beer store has what you would expect - growler fills, bottle sales (3 per person per beer when we were there) and swag.
When we arrived at the taproom we were warmly greeted by the bartender and offered a seat. Very relaxed atmosphere with what seemed like a local crowd having a beer after a day at work (this was a Thursday afternoon around four). The pub didn't have anything out of the ordinary on while we were there but that was just fine as I had not yet had any of their offerings. You can do a sampler flight of four or six beers. We started with the six before I settled down with a pint of Pure Hoppiness. We had the veggie nachos and a couple of different salads. The nachos were good but the wife and I really enjoyed the salads.
Service was prompt and friendly. Food and beer were very affordable. Of course, I'm used to the Chicago gouging, so this was refreshing. Picked up some bottles of Nelson, PH, and Duet on the way out. Each under $6.
Really cool little place. Would definitely do it again if we could work it out, though it is a bit off the path, especially from LA.
