Encinitas Ale House is south of the main nightlife strip in downtown Encinitas on South Coast Highway 101. It offers an appealing environment and an impressive menu. The food is high quality and includes burgers, seafood, salads, pizzas and sandwiches, as well as many specials. While there are many food options, this business is primarily an ale house, and offers an immense amount of different beers, including microbrews, domestic and imported beers and a "current beer" list which changes often. The selection includes upwards of 100 different beers. There are events, happy hour specials and Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday specials as well. Tables are first come first serve, but parties of six or more should call in advance to reserve.
