Bdawg says:  Ballast Point's main brewery is in San Diego.  This is one of 9 satellite brewery/tasting rooms.  Seven of the tasting rooms are in California and there is one in Illinois (Chicago), and one in Virginia (Daleville).  This Temecula location is new, it definitely has a West Coast vibe.  Clean crisp and modern.  The food is good and the beer is excellent!

Ballast Point is know for their Sculpin IPAs.  Which I thoroughly enjoy. 
But my favorite is an Imperial Porter called "Victory at Sea" 
These are two special versions of Victory at Sea (VAS).

Raspberry Chocolate Truffle Victory at Sea
Imperial Porter
10% abv,  2.5 Hearts (too fakey)
The inside of the taproom has a clean modern feel.

Plenty of covered seating outside on the patio.
