Split an í09 Cable Car w/ the wife while in SD for Stones Sour Fest. Busy on a Saturday night, but still got 2 spots right @ the bar. The food was amazing & the tap list of stellar CA locals & Belgian greats was top drawer. The bar tender was friendly & knowledgeable. If they had a patio of any sorts, it would be tough to beat Toronado for sure!

Good beer selection, with maybe 50 taps. A lot of local stuff, particularly Alesmith, Coronado and Green Flash. Nice bottle selection in beer fridges behind so you can easily see exactly what they have. Inside was stuffy and crowded, but outside the patio is great. Much more lively, but by police order they have to close this by 10. Didnít live up to my Toronado SF standards or the vibe of Hamiltonís, but itís still a great beer bar regardless.

The best beer bar in the San Diego Area. A huge variety of the best southern CA beer on draft as well as numerous guest taps including hard to find belgians. The monday night happy hour cannot be beat - anyhwere. Knowledgeable, friendly workers. The food is also great to make this even better -- great sausages and potato pancakes.

Literally ran here after the Lost Abbey Veritas release when wetherel nonchalantly told us they had a stock of Cable Car bottles like it was nothing. It gets pretty crowded on any given night, but during the day it was totally chill. Exceptional tap list, unsurpassed bottle lists. Around ten items on the menu with not a whole lot of variety, but thatís never stopped me from coming back. All in all, I like the SF location better because it has more character and I like the staff there- I like how people donít like the staff there, but this oneís cleaner, more open, and friendlier all around.

Does not look as cool as most beer locations, this place is a lot more proffessional looking. Large tap selection all scrunched down into the corner. Prices are great and selection is mostly San Diego standards with a small groupo of rarities.

Toronado San Diego is great. I love this place because of their rare sections they often get. Even without they always have some well above average offerings. The food is really good but limited in selection. The value is decent most the time and Monday happy hour is fantastic with the prices!

When I went on vacation in San Diego I knew I had to stop by this place. Sure enough it was awesome. Fantastic selection of brews on tap. I could of just sat there all night. Service was friendly even though the place was packed and loud We couldnít find seats. Their bottle selection was also fantastic. I was close to asking for a bottle of Cable Car or Isabelle but I had to hold myself back froms spending that 50 dollars =)

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.

Tried this place after getting so many recommendations from RBers. It is similar to Toronado in SF in appearance, but a little more room (thank God) and some tables to sit at. The beer selection was good, especially the bottle list. Didnít care for the mix of hip young crowd and overly expressive g@ys. Had a couple nice brews, left to go eat with intent of coming back to try a nice bottle, only to find that they closed at midnight. WTF? How pansy. Overall, decent.
