This was our first visit to Legacy. There are many references to the Marine Corps in their decor and beer names. The service here was quite slow as we sat at the bar for some time without being acknowledged. I ordered the Irish Red, which I thought was being offered on nitro. It was but you apparently needed to make a specific request for the nitro pour. No problem, my mistake. When I tried the beer, I was surprised by the level of astringency, a major miss in a beer like this. After I struggled through the astringency, I looked for other characteristics and found it to be oxidized to boot. I tried a porter that my wife ordered and found evidence of oxidation in that sample as well. The beer is unfortunately not that well brewed. The San Diego market offers some of the best beer being brewed on Planet Earth; we didn't find any approaching that level of excellence here.

3 breweries, 1 day.

Wife Persimmon and I have done much more in just a day, but these were 3 breweries that somehow had slipped our beer-radar (or beer-dar) for inexplicable reasons.

It was our duty to correct that over-sight and on this particularly perfect April day in San Diego with #1 son in tow, we set about changing that.

Legacy was the 3rd of the day after the first 2 rather bland, un-inspired experiences we all were hoping for at least 1 or 2 quality beers...if not that, at least something we could look at wide-eyed, nod and mutter to each other; "Aw-right!"

We were not disappointed.

12 tasters of 6 oz. each and only 2 IPA's in the bunch! Sharing space with a Russian Imperial, a Red and Oh My God! Are we reading that correctly? Here in the middle of West Coast burn-your-mouth-and-tongue-with-hops....is that a? A Scotch ale!!????

Not just one, me hearty...but two! Two Scotch Ales in a metropolis that seems to have completely forgotten the style in an effort to out-hop every brewer in a 100 mile radius .

Needles to say, the three of us knew we had come the closest to beervana on that we could ever imagine. AND, the Scotch was delightful. Not as heavy or throaty as say, Old Chubb but damned close. The other Scotch was out but the bartender assured us that the Clan Ross is always available. We were further assured when she pointed to the cooler where bottle after bottle of the stuff stood for inspection and purchase.

Right off Highway 76 on the outskirts of Oceanside - just before Oceanside dies and Camp Pendleton begins....Legacy is easy to find. A half dozen of us had that day so the great noise levels of bigger, more popular breweries is eliminated. Picnic tables abound. They encourage you to bring your own snacks although they have pretzels and several flyers advertising pizza places that deliver.

Chesty Red (named for Chesty Puller...in San Diego, you're never very far away from the Marine Corps influence)...Czarface the Russian Imperial...Sons of Liberty Porter...Hop Off 76....a grand conglomeration of brews to choose...all with distinctive flavors...none bad...this was the perfect end to a day of discovery.

We recently had to divorce our favorite brewery due to some shitty customer service...a place we had been frequenting weekly for 18 months. It was not amicable and we wondered where, if any, place might rise up and welcome us.

Found it! So should you. Bring peanuts. We'll chat. Maybe even buy a round.
