Two weeks ago we poured the slab at Hess Brewing. We brought out a GoPro and shot about 3.4 hours of the pour, here in timelapse. Enjoy!

We have Kumpir at the brewery tonight. If you've never had one of these Turkish Potato Treats you should give it a try!

We've got Swieners coming to the brewery today to serve up some Swiss Hot Dogs. If you've never had one, give it a try. The cheese is insane!

Plus we have a fresh batch of Aurum Belgian Gold up.

One of the most unique entrance as you walk along the tops of the fermentation tanks on a cat walk into a giant seating area and large bar. Lots of board games and great beers. If you get a flight you get a free glass to take home!

If you like Hess you'll like this place. I am a fan of their beer. The drinking room always has a good selection of taps and the prices are good. They have board games that are available to patrons. The industrial design is cool and very well done. My chief complaint about this place would have to be the hours. The evening is getting into full swing when it's time to close down.

Frank! Thanks for your note. The ABC sets our hours, and b/c we're not a restaurant, it is tough to get hours past midnight. Thanks again and see you soon.

The beer is phenomenal. Paul who is one of the brewers just tweaked up the Grapefruit Solis Recipe I believe they call it Solis 57 and it is worth getting. Very friendly and laid back locale I will be back for more.

Great beer. Not the best SD has to offer but the beer is awesome, something you have to try if exploring the SD beer scene. Employees are always great, nice and helpful. I cannot say enough good things about this place. Keep up the awesome job.

Thanks Abraham! Glad you had a nice visit! Our team members are awesome! We did just win a Gold in the 2016 San Diego Int'l Beer Competition, 5 awards including a gold, three silvers and a bronze in the 2016 Los Angeles Int'l Commercial Beer Competition and a Gold Award in the World Beer Cup on May 5th, so I think we're making actually some of the best beers in the country. But we will continue to work on our craft and keep doing an awesome job! Cheers! Mike

Call me old fashioned, but I don’t usually approve of breweries named for a person. However, the second I first walked in to this brewery I knew I had judged it wrong. The entrance literally feels like a Star Wars catwalk (why were there so many catwalks in a galaxy far far away?) over a forest of brewing equipment. Also there are several varieties of non-IPA beer here! Plus there is a German style food truck parked in the back, it’s dog friendly, and there is a small deck in front outside to enjoy a flight. It does not get any better. The sours are excellent and anything with rye in it is delicious if you enjoy a little tart.

Last stop on my San Diego brewery tour before rolling out to the airport. Sadly, only had about 90 minutes to soak in all of the ambience and great beer. Sampled a flight and had a few quick beers while chatting with Greg Hess. Gotta say that everything about this place is top notch. The tap room sits elevated over the brewery giving you a great view of everything going on below. The staff are awesome and the beer is excellent. The glassware, swag and even the art on the wall were all top notch. Wish that I had more time to spend here before jumping on a plane. Sampled: Grapefruit Solis IPA, Solis IPA, Habitus DIPA, Hartley Pale Ale, and Hessfest 6 Double Red. The red was good, but all of the IPA's & Pale were magical.

Hard to beat good beer at a good price in a cool location. The catwalk past the silver tanks into a nice big airy tasting room is an epic entrance. Try their grapefruit IPA.
