Pretty cool place. Lots of choices on draft and in bottle. It will be a long time before I can walk in here and NOT find something I havenít had. Hey, I can always have a draft of PBR if it comes down to it.

Better than OíBriens hands down. Nice ambiance, good selection of bottles and a decent selection on tap. I think I still prefer Liars Club, because they have a better tap selection and good food, but Hamiltons has easy to find parking, unlike PB. All in all, itís worth a visit.

A great beer bar that was crowded when we arrived. Some great people as well. A fun time. The tap list is pretty sick too!

This is a nice little place nestled away in the South Park area of San Diego. Went there with Katie to get Pliny the Younger after OBriens had tapped out. Ambiance inside is quite a dive, with a little ghetto cafe next door that serves up pretty damn good burgers and grilled cheese sandwiches through a window linked to the bar room. Pretty small inside, with a good sized bar and just a few tables. The entire back area is taken up by pool tables and shuffleboard. Awesome bottle selection with plenty of Belgians and hard-to-find American brews too. We had some vintage Old Stock. Also available was RR Temptation, Beatification and others. Gets quite crowded during later hours, so reserve your seat at the bar early!

Great little neighborhood establishment. Good beer selection. BEWARE the raspberry jam and pepper hamburger! I enjoy spicy food and this thing almost killed me. After an hour of trying to pull myself together I pulled back the bun to reveal a ridiculous amount of fully seeded serranos! Lessen here: Always check under the bun before inserting in mouth.

well-worn interior and ambiance with choice draft list and extensive bottle list. two Schlenkerla kegs on during my visit. everything to satisfy your tastes, from lambic to burly stouts to farmhouse ales.

Went here for the Beer & Boobies 2008 being put on by Vac, zug4abby, sick_boy282 & sick_girl282. Very nice tap list. friendly folks, a little dark and dingy & dive-bar-ish. Since I live 70+ miles away, I wonít be going here often, but if I lived near it, I might given the tap list.

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.
