The Brewery Project: Iron Fist
Iron Fist Brewing Co. for quite some time, I don't get to Vista very often, so it took me a while to actually pay them a visit. I wasn't disappointed. The energy was high on a Saturday afternoon around 5:00pm, and the place was packed. The friendly, casual staff made me feel right at home and were more than happy to pour me a beer, even though it was well past the posted last call time of 5:00pm due to a private event at the brewery later that evening. I've tried a few of their beers before, but the bulk of the brews they were pouring were new to me, so I chose a beer that combined two of my favorite styles. Uprising, their 12% alcohol Belgian Style Trippel IPA, seemed like the right choice. To be honest, I don't know if it was a Belgian Style Trippel IPA or a Belgian Style Trippel IPA. Either way it was good, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I enjoyed the whole experience, and look forward to my next visit. There are quite a few breweries in Vista to choose from, but this one should definitely be at the top of your list.
