Aztec Brewing is so wonderful on so many levels. The beer is excellent, featuring a selection both of creative manifestations of comfortable classics (IPA, amber, blonde, etc) as well as an array of truly unique and delicious specialty beers, like the Macaroon Nut Brown, and the Coffee Blonde. As many know, Aztec Brewing is also a gem of the North County music scene, providing live music at least three nights a week, including what is widely regarded as the best open mic in the area every Thursday night. Finally, there's the rich history associated with the brand. All around, a wonderful place, run by wonderful people. I recommend it highly.
