Badass! Some prices are nuts(Armand 4 seasons) but most are doable. All the almanac beers are avail. Fun place.

Really long, somewhat narrow place. A bar that runs the whole length of the establishment and some tables off to the side as well. Quite a divey feel, which I typically like.

Extensive bottle list (though somewhat laughably priced) and a really nice, eclectic draft list. Prices are pretty good and they do flights for $10 (four pours), as well as 4 ounce pours of any beer for $2.50, which is appreciated.

We didnít eat anything here, but the food smelled and looked great. Looks like a great burger place.

Will have to try to make a stop in Encinitas again and make a return trip.

Very impressed with this place- shocked that Iíd never heard of it. Decided to give it a go after reading Leightonís review. Awesome, cozy beer bar ambiance with few tables and a long bar. Very crowded, but not too loud. Diverse menu but specializing in burgers- they were quite good 8/10. Service was all surprisingly good when it came to beer knowledge. Our server knew much more about beer than most staff at any big beer place Iíve travelled to. He guided me through the bottle list quickly and we found quite a rarity here- Westmalle Extra, usually for sale only on premise at the monastery in Belgium. Tap list was extensive focusing on local CA beer especially highlighting nearby Acoustic Ales. Tasting flights available and not expensive. Tap list included rarities like Midnight Sun Moscow, which made my wife a happy camper. Will be back.

Really quite an impressive place. I stayed in Encinitas for a week but, lamentably, I only came to this venue on my last night. The draft list is solid, with lots of local stuff and in addition to some fairly obscure CA beers (picked up a one-off Almanac beer here, for one). The bottle list is also really well put together, with lots of great American beers alongside a comprehensive range of European imports. The food is also good. I had a salad but my companion had a burger, to which he gave high marks. The prices are pretty damn good on everything. The service is also very good. If you are staying in Encinitas this place is a must-visit. The location is right on the main drag, so itís easy to find.

One of my favorite beer bars in San Diego. They have a kick ass and knowledgeable staff. There draft list is incredible and changes every day, Belgians, Domestics, German, Austrian, beer from all over the world. They get some super rare beers as well! The Burgers are definately up there on the best burger I have ever had. My boyfriend is a vegetarian and he even loved his Veggie Santana Burger. Fish tacos are bomb, Pizzas delicious. My favorite local hang out spot, tiny European pub feel to it. Tons of locals that strike up conversation and are so friendly.

This is a nice local, though the space is too small and they have some weird table configurations. Iím impressed with their selection. Someone there likes Belgians, cause itís heavily weighted in the beer list. They do mix it up really well. Iíve been about 5-6 times, and the beer selection stays fresh with new beers every time. The food is good, albeit a little pricey. They were actually serving lion burgers one day (is that legal?).

Typical craft beer pub atmosphere, fairly nice. Decent selection of Belgians and locals. Bartenders seemed friendly enough. Average pricing. Nothing too special, but a nice place to grab a brew. I did not try the food.
