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.

Visited Jan 19, 2013.

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.

First let me start off by saying the burgers here are finominal. And they are soccer fans. But it is very worth visiting. The service here is also excellent

Hard to rate OíBrienís normally as I was there for Million Zillion Speedway night- and well, if that doesnít get a 15/15 for selection I donít know what would. Ambiance is cozy, relaxed sports bar. Decent amount of patio seating. TVs abounding. Long wooden bar to sit at or grab some small, snug tables. Tap list is updated regularly on a dry-erase board. Staff were quick and efficient. Location is a bit out there in a suburban strip mall. Plus side is lots of free parking and a ton, like 20, Asian restaurants around like Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese, Japanese, hot pot specialties, Ramen specialties. Really good stuff. Food at OíBrienís is upgraded bar food: Parmesan garlic fries, loaded nachos. Everything was good, but more snacking type stuff. Staff handled the chaos of the event very well. Everyone there got to try all 16 Speedways, which seems impossible to me. Even allowed full 10oz pours of the varieties after the line died down to nothing. Really impressed with the logistics here. Like for the rest of San Diego, the beer community is closely knit so strike up a conversation with someone if you are by yourself. Youíll learn a lot and have more fun. Value, I mean $8 for a 10oz pour of Coconut Vanilla Speedway? Good lord.

OldGrowth  (193) the Containment Area, North Carolina | April 23, 2012
Visited 4/ 23. J shape bar, dozen seats. 10 inside tables. 20.plus outside, covered outside. Food good. I had fish torta, wife had jalapeno chicken salad. Both were specials . Draft list good, heavy west coast slant. Impressive bottle list. Itís in a strip.mall so ambience is mixed. Certainly worth visit when in San Diego.

It was a while back that I went but remember it very fondly and would most definitely make stop there through on my next trip. Itís an odd location and ambience....normally the strip mall dive bar thing wouldnít work, at least not outside of CA. But this totally does, in part because it is imbued with spirit of the crazy quantity of amazing beer that has been poured here. The beer list is their own and sits in the excellent classic and only-in-SD-local variety that doesnít seem to care too much about trends. High marks in overall for this. The bartenders were great. I donít remember much about the food but it certainly wasnít bad.

Scopey  (653) Croydon, England | March 20, 2012
We stopped past here after visiting Alesmith and Hess. The location is a bit unusual - itís surrounded by Asian eateries. The exterior/Interior is "Irish themed" dive bar. The tap list was solid, but not outstanding when I visited. It was however full of interesting Californian microbrews I hadnít heard of before. The bottle list was pretty extensive and I managed to get a Framboise de Amorosa . They even had BA Speedway Stout on the list.....but unsurprisingly it was out of stock -damn! Food was so-so. All round itís a good place for beer, but not outstanding given some of the other places in the SD area.
