Karl Strauss Brewery is situated above the Carlsbad flower fields, Legoland and The Crossings golf resort. Karl Strauss beer is locally brewed in Carlsbad and is delicious.
They always have seasonal brews and their staple Red Trolley Ale. The service is always friendly and helpful when deciding on what to eat or drink.
There are always beer and food pairings on the menu and sometimes they bring out a taster with your food so you can enjoy the pairing with your meal.
The vibe is like most craft breweries. A large bar with smaller tables to enjoy a drink. Some outdoor seating with heaters to keep you warm during dinner time. And overall a family friendly destination to enjoy a meal and some conversation.
I would recommend Karl Strauss to any Carlsbad local or tourists passing through,
