The atmosphere and the food menu are not me, but the service was the best Iíve ever had at any beer bar ever. Multiple extremely attentive servers kept on top of us and chatted us up, even though we obviously werenít locals and even mentioned we werenít going to be back any time soon since we were out of state. Love the 4 ounce taster option. I was also really, really impressed with the prices in the bottle list, they werenít marked up that much higher than local beer stores, which was impressive.

Visited a number of times since 2008, with the first being during RBSG 2008.

Cool place with a very eclectic tap selection and a good bottle list. Priced accordingly of course. Service is good and theyíre used to beer nerds asking for samples and half pours. Theyíre going for the English pub feeling, which I guess they achieved, who knows as I havent been to a pub in England outside of the airport. Food is pretty good.

Check out their festivals, they put on some good stuff, but be prepared to wait in line outside when it gets busy. I will never go for Churchills Finest Hour bottles as Iím not interested in waiting 6 hours in line for bottles (or cutting in front of 200 people).

Visited later on a Tuesday evening, and found the place quite easily along San Marcos Blvd. Plenty of parking on the street or in the lot. The interior of the place is a but run down, with the bar to the left and the restaurant seating to the right. The large bar was surrounded by darts on one side, pool table on the other, and table seating scattered about. Tons of great beer on draft, and an impressive bottle selection. They had several lower ABV beers, which I really appreciated. Service was efficient, and in no way friendly. Customers seemed to be on the younger side, and were pretty raucous considering it was a Tuesday. All beers are offered as 4 ounce samples, which is very cool. Overall, I really loved the selection, but wasnít really comfortable. I think this would have been more fun with a group than flying solo.

82 = ★★★Ĺ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Appearance is more along the lines of a traditional pub. Nice patio area outside as well. The draft list is always great and the staff is friendly. Prices can be a little on the high side, but typically arenít too bad. Iíve never eaten here, but the food always looks good.

Several drafts enjoyed here in refuge during the blackout in 2011. Awesome draft selection that rivals most bars, huge bottle selection and a wonderfully friendly staff. A must for anyone in the San Diego area. GO NOW

Best beer bar. Anywhere. Anytime. Donít care who argues with me. They have 50 taps plus nitro, and they are always filled with anything you could possibly want. I once had lunch there and was able to have PalletteWrecker from Green Flash, Evil Twin, and a the Valdieu Grand Cru. My tab? 16 dollars. Also, for some reason, nobody mentions how good their pub grub is. Great sausage rolls, guineess bbq wings, duck wings on special, fries, and shepards pie. Service is always badass. These guys really really know what they are talking about. Ivan, the owner, goes out of his way to make sure these guys are the same page. Can get busy, but worth waiting for a seat at the bar. I live in north orange county and always make the commute to come down here whenever I can!!
