30 beers on tap. Enough flat screens to view sports if desired. A view of the bay from some windows. Great service. Outstanding food included grilled fish and smoked tuma tacos. Beer and growlers (limited choices) to go.

Visited around 1.30pm on Saturday 19/04/14. Modern build with one longish rectangular shaped room and a good sized outdoor patio area to the left of the bar where brewing equipment was also on view. The place was pretty packed but I managed to grab one of the last seats at the bar. 20+ taps offering a fairly even split between BP’s regular line up and small batch R&D beers. A flight of 3 x 4oz pours came to $5. Not all of the small batch beers were included in the tasting flights but you could purchase individual 4oz pours for between $1.5 and $3. Service was impressive bearing in mind how busy they were. Various merchandisr also on sale. Overall a great tickers venue, small batch one offs, tasters available. Will make this a definate stop on my next trip to SD.

Really nice spot in Little Italy. Huge restaurant area and a patio in the parking lot on the side. Maybe 40 taps showing the huge range of output from Ballast Point. Tasters reasonably cheap and generously poured.

Relatively big beer hall in the Little Italy area, just north of downtown. Quite a few obscure Ballast Point beers, quite nice for tickers. Pints, halfs or tasting flights. The food was pretty solid as well. Street parking. Slightly high prices, but nothing too outrageous. Great staff. I’d return!

Cool bar with about 20 ballast point taps. All the regulars plus a nice selection of small batch/experimental stuff. Lots of seating and a big bar. Small food ordering area, food smelled good, but I didn’t eat anything. Service is kind of slow, even without a big crowd. Prices are decent, I suppose. Full pours and flights of three are offered. Unfortunately, most of the experimental beers were not all that good.

Great spot. Something like 20 BP beers on tap including an impressive range of short-run offerings. Good vakue for someone used to London prices; $5 for 3 glass flight is fine by me. Good ambiance, lots of seating, friendly staff. Solid food options. Definitely worth a visit.

Visited December 8, 2013.
It took five years to finally make it to the original Homebrew Mart location and the day after I also get to the brand new location. Nice. This is in Little Italy so there are plenty of shops, resturants, and bars to keep you busy once you’re done at the brewery and there is a nice view of the ocean from up on the hill but you first have to find some place to park. India Street doesn’t have much so just grab the first thing you see within a couple of block radius. When we arrived on a Sunday afternoon to find a long line coming from the bar which was irritating as it took a good 15 minutes to get a beer. Must be because they only had two bartenders but there were some people that were chatting them up and wouldn’t just get their beer and move. The bar was mostly empty so we sat there and tried all seven variations of the Little India Pale Ale as well as a new milk stout and a new hefe. Prices aren’t exactly cheap but they weren’t ridiculous either. $5 for a flight of 3. They have a small brewing system in back which is where they make the specials that are only available here but they also have all the regular year round stuff on tap and available for growler fills. They have merchandise too. The Charger game was on so everyone was preoccupied with that but we just drank our taster flight and headed out. I’d stop back in, and I’m sure I will considering the proximity to Pizza Port Ocean Beach and Stone Liberty Station.

Stopped in with my wife intending to get drinks and dinner. Nice, open bar scene with lots of BP (but nothing else) beers on tap, including some interesting variants. Friendly bartenders. Seating is mostly high tables and the bar. There is a small kitchen over to the right, with maybe 4-6 entrees, but you have to order your food and then fight for one of 6-7 tables. We wound up leaving because it was crowded. Fun place for grabbing a drink and maybe a casual meal.
