I love IPA, and they have one of the best I've ever had if not the best. Good friend introduced me to the place. Very well run and not fancy. It's all about the beer. Totally authentic, local San Diego microbrewery.

Beers are fine. Wide variety of beers to choose from. I didn't experience any unique or stand out beers. Taste like when I used to make beer from kits. Very generic, not malty - if anything slightly dry. No complaints, though.

A great addition to the superb San Diego beer scene. The staff is friendly. They have good beer and a super sized Jenna game. Great stop after hiking in Mission Trails or Cowles!

Nice selection of great tasting craft beer. Owner teaches culinary arts and business finance at the San Diego Art Institute when he is not running around on brewery business, brew festivals, etc.

This place is awesome. Their beer is very tasty and they seem to always know what kind of music I like. I truly recommend visiting Groundswell. The people are friendly, and pets are welcomed.

Groundswell is in an unassuming location, in an area that isn't on the path of many brewery tours. Which is exactly why this place is great. IPA #5 and #10 are solid beers that they often sell out of. Their ginger Saison is one of...More

This a small and fairly new brewery that's opened up in Grantville, just off of Mission Gorge Road. They have a fairly decent array of beers, sell individual tasters of each one, and have pints as well as growlers available. It's a small but friendly...More

First time I came here was with a friend using a beer tasting card that had 10 breweries on it. The person behind the counter was not that helpful and kinda of put a damper on the visit. Because we enjoyed the beer, I bought...More

The guys who started this brewery invested their dollars into the beer first and location second. Tucked away in a little known area of San Diego called "Grantville" or Mission Gorge for the rest of us locals, this place serves up fantastic brew and some...More
