Chose this place as it was downtown. It’s a big brew pub with food in one corner and the bar in the front.
The food is reasonably priced with daily specials for soup and sandwiches.
The selection of Ballast Point beers is great including their R&D beers and specialty one-off beers like a nitrogenized Sculpin IPA.
Definitely worth the time and travel.

We were told by some locals that was a bit better than going to the actual brewery, so we headed over there. Pretty decently sized bar in the Little Italy area of the city. Place is very spacious. Lots of beer on tap, including some R&Ds and other smaller batch stuff. Food menu is "small" but a lot larger than I expected. PB&J wings were pretty tasty, as were the other appetizers we got to snack on. Fun place.

themfront door opens right to the long bar and ordering spot. Two tvs display the tap list. All the standards and lots of one offs or special draughts. Most beers come in three sizes and a flight of thee is a buck cheaper than buying them solo. There is a large outdoor space but it was closed when I was there. The food looks nice but I was just there for the beer. The place was hopping on a Saturday night but service was pretty spot on through it all. I really enjoyed my quick stop in here and will be back.

Quite a big place and quite busy as well. Helpful, fast and knowledgeable staff in general, one of the guys made a slightly baffled impression. Good food, not too cheap though, beer prices are very nice, but beware: the bartenders tend to give you much more than the 4oz you want in a taster. Good lineup of lots of Ballast Point’s beers, a Merch shop and bottles to take with you. One of the places to go to in San Diego.

This is a nice addition to Little Italy and is located conveniently across the street from Bottlecraft, mere blocks from the airport. There are many R&D draft selections along with the regular and seasonal lineup. Our service was very good and we could have spent many hours here. If the food at this location is anything like the new Miramar one, then expect very good things.

Le quartier joue pour beaucoup dans le panache de ce tasting room. La liste est superbement garnie également avec ses classiques et sa série R&D. C’est grand, c’est bruyant et ça manque un peu de chien mais au moins c’est dans la petite Italie.

Wow, very surprised and happy with this place. Bar tenders very friendly took time to chat and let us know about each beer, what the R&D program is, etc. Ton of beers on tap, I counted 34 with a lot draft and test batches. 3 x 4oz samples for $5 (can’t beat that!). Food was good.

Visited the 8th February 2015 with a friend - The place is near to the airport on a calm neighborhood. Good place with a good selection of the Ballast Point beers, you have 2 selections one with the classic one and one with experimentation from the Tasting Room. The place is clear and nice, beers are well served and the food is ok. About the people, I don’t know if that was not the good day but the people were very rude (my friend was slapped), the service is ok but not the nicest I saw in San Diego. Good place but worst ambiance in San Diego.

Went on a Friday and the place was PACKED and loud with hipsters, surfers and the tattoo crowd. Kind of a free for all to find a place but everyone is pretty laid back so you can make it work. Pretty good variety and the fact that they have 5 or 6 variations of the Sculpin makes it kind of fun to try especially because they offer 8 oz pours which actually is quite brilliant. But conversation was basically impossible and I felt like I had been to a Hair Metal concert by the time I left.
