Nicer building and atmosphere than SF. Probably not as hip...but the burgers are good and the beer selection is fantastic.

Un incontournable à San diego avec sa liste de fûts imposante et ses nombreuses bouteilles. L’ambiance est correcte, la bouffe semble solide pour ce que c’est et la localité est plus qu’adéquate. Par contre, e peux pas dire que je suis charmé comme je le suis avec plusieurs autres débits de bières dans les environs.

Visited on a Friday as soon as they opened. Service was good, but we practically had the place to ourselves (which was nice!). Nice tap list and the food was good.

Visited during SDBW mid afternoon, basic wooden place, nothing special, music didn’t really add to the ambiance, seemed to be summarily ignored by the serving staff who seemed happier to chat amongst themselves. At least it saved on a tip! Beer selection OK but nothing too spectacular. Overrated.

Visited on Wednesday 12/11/14 around 3pm. No real charm in the venue itself, just a medium sized place with the bar on the right as you enter, wooden floor, table seating, beers listed above the bar. The place was pretty busy and the clientele seemed to be made largely from a local heavy metal crowd. The music was too loud and shit! Crap 80’s music and naff UK stuff, Come on Eileen - really !?! Service generally seemed disinterested but I’d come to expect this from other reviews and having visited the SF bar so no real shock factor here. Beer selection was good, don’t get me wrong, but for a UK ticker I think there were only 6 or 7 new ones for me, seemed to be a lot of Pizza Port beers on the list which, when planning to visit a number of PP venues, weren’t of much interest either. Pints only, no small pours - great ! I really wanted a full pint of 8% beer at 3pm with a full days ticking laying ahead! Ok - I can get bars not wanting to piss about with 3 or 4oz pours, but at least offer a 10 or 12oz option as opposed to 16! Overall a let down. Too loud, not that many ticks on tap, crap service, pints only. Living off a reputation that it doesn’t really deserve as far as I’m concerned!

I guess I just had my expectations too high. After visiting Max’s in Baltimore, no CA pub that I’ve been to even comes close. But Tornado was smallish. Had about 20 taps going. It was a Sunday night and so was fairly empty. Almost all the taps I’d had before so I asked for a Hair of the Dog Adam, which was on the tap list. Of course, they didn’t have it, so I had to go with a second choice. It isn’t that hard to keep an updated list. Loud music. Disinterested server. I’m not sure why anyone would go to this place. I think too many of these CA pubs are living off of their memories.

Nice place with a lot of really good beers. Located in a nice area and easy to find. Visited two times and had very different experiences when it came to service. The guy behind the bar during my first visit was kinda rude, I could not get small samples or flights, he seemed really uninterested in working there. Second time was a lot better. Will visit again.

Not very busy Friday afternoon. Laid back atmosphere. Awesome tap selection and an even better bottle selection with a lot of rarities, especially for us East Coasters. Several Russian River bottles, Almanac, Several Belgian ales. Great food too. Super friendly service to boot.
