This place is a kick, sitting on the edge of downtown and skid row! Park on the north side and you will be fine. Great selection of Monkey Pawís own brew, plus a sizable amount of guest taps. Bartender knew her stuff, the food guys were friendly, and everyone seemed happy. The food we had was good pub grub, waffle fries, veggies cheese and chicken. It is for sure a stop if you are down in SD as the beer is very good.

Iím a bit skewed on this place, because we often end up here after a long day at the ballpark. This is a great stop after the Padres game, or a concert downtown. Their own beers are fine to great, with the great being not as frequent. Good jukebox, but yes, loud. Fun, loud place.

A funky little bar/ brewpub in a rather rough part of downtown San Diego. (By that I mean the homeless population is adequate.) The ambiance in here is pure dive bar. The four beers I tried were all average or slightly better. The service is attentive and friendly. There is also a wide range of other breweries on tap, including lots of local SD shops. Good value. I would recommend a visit here if you are in this part of town.

We visited this place on the 24th of December 2013 after a round of Golf at Balboa Park, only 5 minutes drive from there, hence located very centrally. Looks more like a brew bar with an attached small brewery. Like the atmosphere of the pub, dark wooden interior, long bar with many guest beers (also quite impressive bottle selection: Schlenkerla, Samichlaus, ...).Has an own character. Beers are not my taste, a bit watery. We had an Oatmeal Pale Ale and a Brown Ale, both below San Diego average. Service was a bit unfriendly. I recommend coming to the Pub, but would drink great beers from other breweries in the Sand Diego area.

Dive bar feel outside but a friendly pub atmosphere inside. If you Google the history of that building, looks like itís always been a dive bar (formerly the Jewel Box). Their location may creep out some, but itís worth it to at least visit, try one of their brews and maybe have a bite to eat. Staff and service were very good, the food was pretty good (pulled pork sandwich) and their house beers are very drinkable (I had their Howler IPA).

Great beer selection. But a bit of a dive bar feel. A bit dark inside. But cool wait staff and again, great beer. Which is all you need!

Not a bad place, food was okay, beers tasty, just too loud for an old man like me, I just canít understand why music is so loud in a craft ale bar, just my own preference, definitely worth a visit.

Popular, fun dive bar with a mega tap list featuring their own beers and an awesome guest tap selection. Look and feel is nearly a clone of Hamiltonís. The big advantage is the house beers, which are of varying quality but in general very good. They have sampler flights of everything, served on paddles. Great ambiance, cheap high quality beer. A local hangout for sure. Didnít eat here but the food menu seems solid. Will be back.

Visited June 22, 2013.
This place is on a quiet corner of a dark street but itís really cool. Lots of taps and lots of house beers. They do flights of 4 (only for house beers) so we got three flights. The bartender was really nice and gave me the employee discount. The beers were all decent, which was impressive considering just how many I tried. Non were amazing but they were all drinkable. Will definitely go back eventually.

This brewery is trying to decide if it wants to focus on brewing good beer or serving exceptional beer. The atmosphere was great and they had some rare bottle selections. The pale ales and IPAís stood out, but the rest of the house made beer was just normal. The open air style is pure San Diego

Doesnít look like much from outside, but pretty nice interior. Not really in the best part of the city. A long bar with a very nice draft selection and some good whiskeys. Pretty good service, the food smelled quite good, though it was typical pub food. House beers are okay on the whole. Some really nice ones and some that are just okay. The only gripe I had was that they wonít do half pours--only full pours or samples of house beers.
