We're not big beer drinkers so one day after going to the nearby Dixieline we decided to stop in thinking maybe we could grab some lunch somewhere casual, but they have no kitchen. They do have food trucks typically later in the day, but encouraged...More

We love this place to hangout and watch sports. Great beer and the brewery brings in food trucks that keeps the food experience changing. Great customer service and great times!

Hidden in the commercial section of La Mesa is a beer garden with awesome beer and live music. Sometimes there are food trucks, but you need to go a bit early for that. There were times we missed the food and ended up having beer...More

When Bolt first opened I wasn't impressed - nice place - nice beer, but due to the hard work the owners, brew masters, and people associated with the brewery it has become a regular stopping place for me. OK, I fish a lot so I...More

Rock bottom basic. You'll get your shoes dusty walking to the bar and the great sandwiches and tasty appetizers are served right from the resident roach coach on premises. But it's just a block from the ramps to Interstate 8 in La Mesa and it...More

This is such a great place to enjoy a nice sunny day. We loved being at the backside of the bar where they have a little "beergarden" area with some fake grass, benches, corn-hole and you are allowed to smoke. It's a nice place to...More

We stopped here trying to locate a place for a retirement party. The staff was very friendly and ultimately I think our party will be held here. On this visit, it was not that crowded, parking was found close by. There is a good sized...More

This place gets packed, so be prepared. The space around the bar, the tables out front, the tables tucked in the back...when we were there, there were people here-there-everywhere. It got a bit claustrophobic. The girls working the bar were friendly and helpful, but it...More

Hidden away in a commercial street in La Mesa, this is a great little brewery. The beers are good - the Mango is different and very refreshing. (Kind of like a shandy). Outdoor seating - and family friendly too. Give it a try!
