A trendy eatery/ bar with a solid range of beers. I had a limited Almanac beer on my visit. Prices are par for the course. Service was efficient. Lots of good beers both on draft and in bottle, highlighted by CA breweries. A good option for this part of town.

Sweet night life spot in the gaslamp part of SD. Awesome vibe- crazy tap list for the area. There is a speakeasy if you go the bathroom and down the corridor push the "wall" of kegs. Itís a door. But inside, youíll need to have arrived early or they max out and you wonít ever get in even if they put your name down. Tap list in the normal neighborhood is excellent- Bruery, Almanac, Russian River, Ballast Point, Alesmith, and more. Had stuff like Almanac Gose and Bruery Tart of Darkness. Quick service. Had a lot of fun here. Didnít ask about sampler flights or small pours. Craft cocktails and craft beer are the theme here. Food looked awesome, but we didnít eat. Will be back.

Visited June 22, 2013.
Interesting mix of upscale and hipster. The food looked really good and I was hungry but we were on a mission to visit a lot of places. About two dozen taps, some of which were pretty good but nothing surprising/unexpected. Service was a little slow but friendly enough at the bar. The tables seem to be seat yourself, or at least there wasnít anyone seating people. Stayed long enough to have a glass of the newest Anchor Zymaster beer (saison) before heading out. Next time Iím going to eat here.

Went on a Saturday night and the place was fairly full. Low lighting, lots of people enjoying some food (which looked and smelled good). Kind of a hip, maybe borderline hipster feel. Nice but somewhat standard draft list. Also had a good cocktail list. Pretty reasonable draft prices (most beers were $5-$6), and the service was good.

A bit of semi-modern hipster feel, but comfortable atmosphere with plenty of locals. Appetizers we had were excellent, as was the beer selection. Service was good, even as they got busier. Pretty good value for the quality of both beer and food. Only quibble is beer flights are pre-selected, which is pretty lame for a place like this.

This a great place. Nice big roll-up windows that look out into the east village. Great tap list and friendly service. The food is kind of "hip" but always very good.

Bit of a hip place, so the risk that itís full seems high. Great taplist with a small but good bottle list. Awesome food (pasilla steak fries rocked!) and good prices. Bit slow but nice staff.

Modern pub with a good bottle selection of some of the more expensive locals and imports. They have about 25 taps and do 3 sets of fixed flights where I had the "local one". A bit odd why you dont want to give the customer the best service and let them choose themselves.... They cost $9 for 4 glasses.

Neighborhood is a small bar which specializes in sipping whiskey and good beer. The ambiance is very hip, progressive and simultaneously comfortable. Tap selection was quite good with a few interesting CA beers I hadnít come across yet. The bartender took excellent care of us. We ate only the onion rings as a snack, so Iím not really sure about the food food here. Cool place.

This beer bar is a wonderful find just outside of the Gaslamp District in San Diego. They were stocked with a great eclectic beer selection. I was able to tray numerous beers that are normally hard to find. I love the "No Budwieser" sign outside. Service was excellent, and the waitress was knowledgable. All beers were served in an appropriate glassware. I will definitely come here again when in the area.
