Way out of town and actually in a strip mall, i wasnít very sure what to expect as we approached. We visited at lunchtime during the week so it wasnít very busy. The beer selection is pretty solid with some interesting stuff. The place looks more like an irish dive bar that has seen better days. The whole place could use bit of a tidy up, but maybe thats how the owners like it. IF you are nearby itís worth checking out, but there are so many other amazing beer bars in SD that iff you are short on time donít bother trekking out here.

Tucked away into a strip mall on the corner. Outdoor seating and indoor seating. Very solid tap list and excellent service. Talked to the bartender for about 45 minutes about other places to go, he wrote down recommendations and was very helpful. Pricing seemed fair, TVs were available and they had some stuff on tap I didnít see much of elsewhere.

Big tatood personís bar with lots of people swearing and the like. So we sat outside, although some intoxicated people thought we could talk to them there. Some different and decent micro taps.

Stopped here for a San Diego Beer Week event where they tapped 20 barrel aged beers, mostly impie stouts. It was ridiculously crowded and almost impossible to find a table, but there was standing room. Sadly, they were serving all sample pours out of plastic cups - shame on them - which probably obscured my ability to enjoy the beers to the full extent. Service was pretty good despite the crowds and the prices were very reasonably given the rarity of many of the beers served.Not sure Iíd say this is a must stop, but if in the area and need some good quality beers, this is a good place to go.

Showed up on a random Friday night which turns out to be Russian River night. F yea! 20+ Russian River beers on tap.... and vinnie opens up a 2007 supplication (9 litre)... I am sure this is not the normal but this was the icing on the cake of a great day/night. Overall the place seems pretty chill for such an event and well worth the trip!

You wouldnít expect to find this place in its particular shopping center. Surrounded by Korean shops and restaurants, itís located in a small shopping center. Parking is tight and limited, so youíre better off just parking around the corner on the street. Small interior with a patio space out front. Service was quick and the place was packed. Nice selection on this visit as it was Russian River weekend and also their anniversary. Nice prices, too. Definitely worth a stop. Didnít eat anything, but the food looked and smelled great.

Busy place with no parking to be found. Despite the lines I got my beers pretty quickly. Sat outside and enjoyed some 10/19 and 19/10 along with some Compunction. Cool place and good prices. Not really near anything I want to visit but I think I will be returning.

The owner is a real beer expert. I was in this beer pub 8 years ago and have to come back. I am still reading regularly the newsletters, impressive initiatives.

Great cozy atmosphere with a good selection of beers. Typical pub fare. The outdoor seating had some great heaters, so you can be outside all year; it was also nice because I could have my dog sit in the patio area.
