Rough Draft is a place to go if you want good beer and decent food. I have tried about 8-10 beers over several visits and they are typically on point for style and quite nice. They have several barrel aged beers which are strong but...More

I've been enjoying the craft brew season in San Diego since it took off. Started with Stone, as it got too big I progressed through Alesmith, Ballast Point, Belching Beaver, abandoning each for the same reason. Doing the rounds at old Alesmith locale (now Mikkeler)...More

Located in a business area it looks a little questionable when you first arrive. The inside is well done (very industrial looking) and the draft selection is quite good. They now serve food but the menu is limited. Definitely worth a try.

Really like this brewery! What I love (besides the beer) is the location is set up for people to be there! I love that. So many small breweries have small tasting rooms, but not so at Rough Draft. They have a decent sized bar, plus...More

Stopped by on a Monday night and tried their Stout and Saison. Not at all impressed with the stout. The Saison was drinkable, but again not remarkable. Neither brew tasted poorly, they just didn't taste.

Great beer, great atmosphere, great future. The brews are seriously good. They get it. Look out Ballast Point.
