Loved this place! We were visiting from AZ. We went on 2nd Sat in December. They had many releases from Ale Smith. The selection and price for these beers were incredible!! Not only did we get to meet Blair/his wife and others that are ver involved, but they also made food for that day and it was free and delicious. The Ale Smith beer for this event was also ridiculously priced in a GOOD way.... more than enough of itís value and more. They were nice enough to spend time to chat with us and also welcome us to an event the next week, but we could not make it. Anyhow, I highly recommend this place to anyone and I will 100% be going again as soon as I get to CA.

A íbarí bar, a regular guysí place that has awesome beers on tap. Had my first taste of Port Hop 15 here, wonít forget it soon. Didnít look at the bottle list because I didnít have to - way too many great locals on tap, and they rotate. Nothing fancy, no food, no pretension, not much service and not much needed. Prices are very good - this is pretty much an everyday working manís bar with a world class beer list. The draft selection is comparable to Liarsí Club. Iíll be back.

Hamiltonís Tavern. Visited on 1/1/11.
My flight was delayed so I went to find Hamiltonís. I would have never found it with out my GPS. Had BA Sea Monster, Victory at Sea and Oaked Yeti on tap. Nice selection of mostly Cali beers on tap. Place was crowded but was still able to get a seat at the bar. Hundreds of tap handles hanging from the ceiling. Tenders were good, no nonsense bar here. Mostly locals. There was a shuffleboard and pool table and some good bar music. Tap list was constantly changing, even in the hour I was there it was updated twice. Good place to visit when in South Park. They also had Anchor XMas verticals from 1999 to 2010 available.

Hamiltonís is my go to beer destination in San Diego. I remember my first trip to Hamiltonís and how awestruck I was upon first glance at the chalkboard listing all the great beer offerings. I am always able to find something great to drink on draft. Next up you have the great bottle coolers with an every wider selection of great beer to choose from. Hamiltonís is, by far, my favorite place in San Diego to drink beer.

I have been going to Hamiltonís since the second week they opened. Met the owner that first night and was made to feel extremely welcome. I go every week with a group of friends and always get to try two or three new beers (usually on draught).
I always have great service and the staff has become very knowledgable, and at a minimum will give you a honest opinion and a tatser if on draught. The atmosphere is fun and there is lots to do for the non-beer geeks as well. The only knocks I have is the music is often too loud, and it gets crowded now, but that is just me being selfish.
The selection is great, always a ton of local crafts, a few belgians, or other rares on tap. I rarely have to order the same beer. The bottle list is great as well, and always getting better. The price is pretty fair for what you get, and happy hour on locals is always nice.
Second Saturday cellebrations to highlight a craft brewery with complemtary food/cheese pairings is a great monthly event.
Have eaten probably 10 times at the cafe and the food is pretty good. I hope they change up the menu a little more often. The mussels were awesome,
burger and chicken sandwich very good, and the beer cheese soup as well.
I really love this place, a great beer bar and I am moving within three blocks of the bar. Lucky me.

Awesome selection of beer on tap and immense selection of bottles. Bartenders were quick and efficient. No real servers walking around to serve beer or food.
Had to order food from a window to the kitchen. Food was horrible.
Despite any shortcomings of the food or service, the overwhelming beer available makes up for this.

My favorite Beer bar in San Diego. They have two pool tables and a shuffle board. More importantly they have a constant rotation of GREAT beers. It does get crowded Thursday-Saturday nights so get there early.
They have really good food next door as well, which you can order in the bar through a little hole in the wall.
Oh, and bring the dog too.

Cool neighborhood bar vibe, but with an amazing beer selection. Some real rarities in their list for a beer bar, especially stuff like Hitachino Nest and Belgian stouts. Owner is a very enthusiasic beer fan and really knows his stuff. No food, though you can get some from next door. Definitely a great addition to the San Diego beer scene.
