This place ROCKS and it is my favorite place to be when I visit the surf soaked city of OceanBeach. The tap selection is always insane, with hard to find breweries like Nimbus, Mendocino, Angel City and Mission Brewey along with tons of other outstanding breweries. The pizzas are all kick-ass with the Ron Jeremy, (i call it the John Holmes, personal preference) being my favorite. You can also enjoy a miriad of 42 different vintage Nintendo 64 video games on the big screen, where else can you find that and enjoy a killer beer? The wait-staff is second to none and always are on top of empty beers ready to fill you up again. The standout people are of course the one and only Johhny Henry with his encyclopidic knowledge on every beer in the universe and his evil counterpart Miles slinging the dough. Just watch out if you go to Newport on Halloween, there may be a manic in very obscene short shorts who may try to touch you in an inappropriate fashion, visit at your own risk and try drinking something in the 11-12% neighborhood~

this is a hidden gem in SD. Now boasting 21 taps, (up from itís previous 16), this place has taps everywhere, has fantastic pizza, and is a good replacement for those missing the Liarís Club being close to the ocean and within reasonable driving distance of SD. Nestled on Newport Ave on OB itís a perfect beachy vibe mixed with amazing brew will leave you wishing youíd heard about it sooner. I canít wait to go back next time I visit SD

NOTE: As your standing at the register looking at the big row of taps, be sure to look at the taps to your right, theyíre the high alcohol ones. Beers like Speedway, Old Crustacean, Chimay White, and Aís the Kaiser are over there. The place is pretty well kept up for being in Ocean Beach. Nice tile and decor, bathroom was OOS though and I had to pee bad. Selection of beers was good, I was almost expecting a little bit better, especially the local stuff, but they still lived up to their No crap, on tap motto. Not a fizzy yellow domestic to be seen anywhere. Beer tasted good, it was a reasonable price $3.75 I believe for a pint, TV, OB, Pizza(didnít try it, but it looked quality), surf, sunshine, whatís not too like.

Small little joint in the hippie beach area of Ocean Beach. The selection is not bad at all. They have about 12-15 taps and their motto is "no crap on tap", and while this is generally a true statement, the beer selection IS better at other establishments, but this is by far the best beer selection in Ocean Beach. Today, they had Arogant bastard, Ruination, Stone IPA, Speedway stout, Old Rasputin, Alesmith Grand Cru, Coronado Hoppy Friar, Steelhead, Firestone, Port Session Baja, and a bunch of others. The pizza is actually pretty good.

First things first, as a one-time east-coaster, I feel qualified to say that by California standards, the pizza is excellent. Good enough even that it would not be out of place in downtown Philly or the Bronx. As far as ambience goes, this is truly a pizza joint. Brightly lit, tiled-floor, no formica booths, but some saloon-style tables. But more importantly, there are sixteen taps. They do a great job of bringing in new stuff and keeping a vast array of styles on draft. Some macros and organic stuff in bottles. Hereís what they had on tap tonight: two Green Flash beers, two Left Coast beers, two Bayhawk beers, Old Rasputin Russian Imp. Stout, two Lost Coast brews, Hemp Ale for the hippies, Hoegaarden and Hacker-Pshorr Weisse for the sissies, Kronenbourg 1664 for the liters, Alaskan Amber, three Deschutes, including Inversion IPA, and Maudite. Not too shabby.
