One of the top spots in SD. The beer selection is awesome, but the ambiance makes it. Lee Chase is also crafting some genius beers in the back under the Automatic label. This is one of the places that youíll tell your kids that you drank beer at when you were younger.

This place is brand new and super exciting. Lee Chase of Stone Fame who has contributed so much to San Diegoís craft brewing culture has his own place. Right now this place serves a wide variety of excellent beer at excellent prices as well as pizzas that Iíve been told are excellent though I havenít had them yet. One day this place will serve Leeís beers, but for now it serves a wide range of great brew available in San Diego and around the Country. This place has a fantastic vibe and I canít wait as it evolves. Had the pizza today and its really damn excellent, vegan options are also a big plus.

Stopped in for dinner and drinks here last weekend. Iíd say this place is almost ideal for a guy like me. Parking was street only; ambience is cool dark wood and big windows looking out to the street. They had probably 25 beers on tap, including Older Viscosity and some other somewhat rare stuff. You order beer and food at the counter and they bring it out. Super friendly staff. Great place for a date or for a family visit.

Really cool local pub/restaurant that we hit up on its third week in business. Really liked the cousy feel and architecture inside. The beer list included some great CA local brews, was well priced and everything was served in the proper glass. The pizzas and salads were great too. Would be great just for a drink or making it an evening with pizza and a couple drinks. We brought our daughter and our Brit friends had their kids too...no issues at all.

Good mix of well priced local brews, a few other domestic micros, and fancy imports. Pizzas are great, Ceaser Salad is a fave. Laid-back ambiance goes well with S-D, but I think they should expand as soon as they can!

BLAH is a great place especially now that they have expanded their seating. They have some real good food. The salads are really good and the pizza offers some thinner crust gourmet options. Really tasty crust. The beer selection is always solid or better. They have honest pours and clean and proper glasses. Friendly staff. Automatic Brewing is run out of there with Lee Chase formerly of Stone. They donít often put out brews but when they do they are pretty tasty. Hopefully they do more and more but it is not their first priority.
