Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon after a movie. Cool, laid back, industrial feel. Tables on a patio outside under giant pine trees. Flights are 3, 4 oz. pours for $5. You can also have a beer of your choice offered in different sizes (4, 8, 12, 16 oz) depending on the type. Can't go wrong with any of the... More

Every beer I had here was delicious and I had a bunch. They only serve snacks so we brought some food. We went there with 2 kids 8&11. They have a large outdoor patio and were ok sitting out there with us. I would definitely come here agin and recommend it.

There are obviously a million breweries and bars in San Diego (not even exaggerating...), and there is more good beer to try than you'll ever have time for. Saint Archer has that but what I like best is the atmosphere, it's relaxed, not too serious and not too busy. Grab a beer, hang out on the patio and enjoy.

Staff not friendly more or less ignored, beers only average not the greatest - disappointing as we expected better.

They offer drinkable session beers focusing on flavor rather than alcohol content. They produce 3 good beers available for tasting, a blonde, pale ale, and IPA. The tasting room is comfortable and currently uncrowded (the tasting room has been open only two weeks) but their straight forward approach to flavorful beer will make them very popular soon.
