Basé simplement sur la sélection, la note serait presque parfaite. Mais avec la longue liste d’options bières à San Diego, ça prendrait du oumph supplémentaire pour appuyer ça. C’est un bar sportif assez crasseux à notre passage, les tables libres étaient tous souillées et collantes et le service se faisait au bar. Par contre, ils connaissent leur liste et savent la défendre. Je vais pas en faire un arrêt régulier mais c’est le genre d’endroit qui peut faire de la magie avec ses fûts.

Way out of town and actually in a strip mall, i wasn’t very sure what to expect as we approached. We visited at lunchtime during the week so it wasn’t very busy. The beer selection is pretty solid with some interesting stuff. The place looks more like an irish dive bar that has seen better days. The whole place could use bit of a tidy up, but maybe thats how the owners like it. IF you are nearby it’s worth checking out, but there are so many other amazing beer bars in SD that iff you are short on time don’t bother trekking out here.

Tucked away into a strip mall on the corner. Outdoor seating and indoor seating. Very solid tap list and excellent service. Talked to the bartender for about 45 minutes about other places to go, he wrote down recommendations and was very helpful. Pricing seemed fair, TVs were available and they had some stuff on tap I didn’t see much of elsewhere.

Big tatood person’s bar with lots of people swearing and the like. So we sat outside, although some intoxicated people thought we could talk to them there. Some different and decent micro taps.

Stopped here for a San Diego Beer Week event where they tapped 20 barrel aged beers, mostly impie stouts. It was ridiculously crowded and almost impossible to find a table, but there was standing room. Sadly, they were serving all sample pours out of plastic cups - shame on them - which probably obscured my ability to enjoy the beers to the full extent. Service was pretty good despite the crowds and the prices were very reasonably given the rarity of many of the beers served.Not sure I’d say this is a must stop, but if in the area and need some good quality beers, this is a good place to go.

Showed up on a random Friday night which turns out to be Russian River night. F yea! 20+ Russian River beers on tap.... and vinnie opens up a 2007 supplication (9 litre)... I am sure this is not the normal but this was the icing on the cake of a great day/night. Overall the place seems pretty chill for such an event and well worth the trip!

You wouldn’t expect to find this place in its particular shopping center. Surrounded by Korean shops and restaurants, it’s located in a small shopping center. Parking is tight and limited, so you’re better off just parking around the corner on the street. Small interior with a patio space out front. Service was quick and the place was packed. Nice selection on this visit as it was Russian River weekend and also their anniversary. Nice prices, too. Definitely worth a stop. Didn’t eat anything, but the food looked and smelled great.

Busy place with no parking to be found. Despite the lines I got my beers pretty quickly. Sat outside and enjoyed some 10/19 and 19/10 along with some Compunction. Cool place and good prices. Not really near anything I want to visit but I think I will be returning.

The owner is a real beer expert. I was in this beer pub 8 years ago and have to come back. I am still reading regularly the newsletters, impressive initiatives.
