This is hands down the best place in San Diego proper. Just the tap list alone makes it a destination before getting into the bottle list or atmosphere. Prices were on par with the area with many drafts about $6.00 to $8.00.

The bar was quiet early in the afternoon though I understand it can get hectic on the weekends (not a huge shock). On the way the bathrooms are rows of rare glassware that I have not seen outside of places in Belgium.

The drafts included many world class beers such as Blind Pig, Pliney, Almanac Golden Gate Gose, Modern Times, and more locals. Other than a pair of Rogue drafts each would have been worthy of a sample.

The bottle list takes things to a whole new level. If you are very lucky they might even have Cable Car or other elusive beers. Even if you donít you will not regret the decision to stop here. I would probably recommend making it the last though because once you stop here you will not want to make it down the street to Thorn Street, Hess, or any of the other destinations in the area.

Stopped over after a day at Sea World. Had to park down the street and got a hipster type vibe for the area, associated it with Uptown in Minneapolis. The selection is just ridiculous, though I wasnít able to land a Cable Car due to the remaining bottles being stored offsite. Not sure if that was their code for not wanting to sell to a non-regular, but at $60 my wallet (and wife) were okay with missing out. The bottle list needs some serious updating as they still had 2010 CC listed for $40.

The world class beer selection of this place gives it its high marks. Lots of local micro brews you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else. The bar was loud and dingy.. And the service wasnít what I was used to from a craft beer establishment.

A big local selection of beers, plus several bottles. Better service, cleaner than the SF location. Went a second time because the Cable Car was listed at $40 which I thought was reasonable for this rare one, unfortunately it suddenly became $60.

Definitely the best bar in San Diego in terms of selection. This is a fairly small place with a capacity of probably under 100. As we were here for San Diego Beer Week, the tap selection was pretty damn awesome, with many one-offs and limited releases available. We got to try the famed Cable Car, as well as a few other special ones. Food was very good (veggie/vegan friendly), and prices were very reasonable. Service was okay as well - no-nonsense and straight to the point. If you donít stop here when in San Diego, I donít know whatís wrong with you.

Really donít know why people complain about service. I walked in for the first time in my life and had a wonderful experience. Nate is the man to ask at the bar, incredible draft selection and bottles too (pricey). Had a really cool night hanging out at Toronado where I met lot of nice people. Iíll come back as soon as possible! Thanks Nate!!

Selection is great; however the service kills this place. Decent place but I there are far better places in San Diego.
