Much like its older brother to the north, Toronado San Diego has great values on great beers. You can get vintage bottles for 1/4 of what they go for in the open market, barely marked up above their original sale price. You can get unbelievable fresh IPAs for under 6 dollars a pint. You can try rare draft only releases practically every day of the week. A rather depressing place, because I know it exists and I know I live thousands of miles away.

Stopped by the Toronado after a day at the San Diego Zoo. Although some questionable characters floating around the streets, once inside a beer nerd will feel at home. From the bar, you can see that their bottle selection is more than adequate carrying a wide variety of brews from Lost Abbey, Russian River, Hair of the Dog, Cascade, Deschutes, as well as an extensive international offering. The staff is knowledgeable and nice. Great specials - when we were there it was Local Drafts (which included all Southern Cali Brewers) for 3 bucks. Highly recí

I love this place! Simple, to the point, and lively. A quickly morphing tap board. I especially love the memorabilia cases in the hallway out to the patio. Also, the cleanest bottle display Iíve yet seen in a bar- all lambics in a row, etc.

Oh my what a draft selection! We started with Pliny the Elder, continued with a 120 minute IPA and then it just went on..... Great knowledgeable staff, good food and the place. A must visit if you are in San Diego.

Really donít know why people complain about service. I walked in for the first time in my life and had a wonderful experience. Nate is the man to ask at the bar, incredible draft selection and bottles too (pricey). Had a really cool night hanging out at Toronado where I met lot of nice people. Iíll come back as soon as possible! Thanks Nate!!

I visited here this past Monday afternoon with my brother. Ambiance was great. Dimly lit with dollar bills stuck to the ceiling. All their taps in the corner on the wall in 2 rows with the tap handles on the actual taps.

The bartender and the owner were in. The bar keep also worked for Port and was very knowledgeable about beer and the local beer scene. We had a great conversation while we all shared a Cable Car. Service was top notch. I hated dropping almost $60 for a bottle of beer. But being only a couple places on the planet where you can walk in anytime and buy a bottle it was worth every penny. I wish more places did this.

Overall a great place with amazing taps and bottles. Great service and value. One of my favorite stops of the trip.

Itís loud, itís clean, itís got a great selection of beers easy to see from the display cases and awesome cabinetry. Best part is itís within walking distance of my place. They will kick ya butts out exactly at 12am. In their lease, donít bitch. I wish their online tap selection/newsletter was more frequent/current, but hell, itís a short walk to see whatís up anyway. I dig it.
