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

Big bar with a great tap and bottle list. Coolers full of bottles you can see from the bar. Prices are reasonable. The bartenders are friendly and helpful. Similar layout as the SF location with the addition of patio seating in SD and a little bigger. They sell food here, but I didnít have any.

Very much like the original toronado except with more space. Lots of bottles and a good selection of taps.
Had a sausage which tasted alright.
Much like the original the bar tenders are hit or miss. I was there on a sunday night and it was empty so i cant say much for the crowd.
Defintely worth going to if youíre in the neighborhood.

Not quite as amazing or authentic feeling as the original in SF, but a welcome addition to the SD beer bar scene and a great place to hang and drink. The selection is always tip top and Iím sure the grime will build over time. In any case a top 5 place to drink in the best beer town in California.

Had a friend in town for the Stone Anniversary, so took him here on a Thurs night for some pre-anniversary party beer exploration.
I know the service here has a reputation of being bleh, but the bartenders here that day were pretty awesome (I think it was Melanie and Eric). They really hooked it up.
Ambience: kind of the avg beer bar. Nothing special. The crowd is the typical North Park early-mid 20ís crowd.
Selection: Well, what can I say.. we got a 2010 Cable Car, a 2009 Cuvee De Tomme, Alpine Exponential Hoppiness paired with some Pure Hoppiness. And thatís only what I could remember off the top of my head.
Value: Hard to put a good value on it, when this is the only beer bar selling some of this stuff :)
Overall, great experience. Cable Car really makes it here :)

The layout is very similar to the one in San Francisco, except it is cleaner and a bit quieter here. The draft selection is beautiful, prices are decent and the waitress was very knowledgeable. All in all, a quality establishment I would love to go back to, but I admit the darkness and unappealing design didnít make this too warm of a place. But a beer geek only needs a great menu, right?

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.
