This place was kinda neat. First off, the parking sucks. Hell, we went there about 10 PM on a Tuesday night and couldnít find a close place to park. We ended up parking a couple blocks away. Anyways... Walked in and found myself in the middle of a 20 something bar. No big deal, I was there for the beer. And the place had some good beer. Nice tap and bottle selection. Food selection was a little odd. Never had Nachos made with Ruffles/Wavy Lays. No matter, I was hungry and ate the shit out of them. I did have the good fortune to try cable Car while I was there. A nice place, but I prefer OíBriens.

Made the trip here after hitting OíBriens. Cool little spot. I wasnít blown away by the tap list compared to what OíBriens had on but the bottle list was great and I split a Cable Car with nbutler11. Huge bonus points to be able to walk in off the street and open a Cable Car for $40. The food was interestingÖ nachos made with wavy Lays potato chips, but you donít exactly come here for the food. Glad I got a chance to check it out.

A much different vibe than itís SF cousin. Located in a decent spot in San Diego, it has a larger interior (brighter lighting too) and a newer/shinier feel. The bar area was spacious and very nice. Thereís also some tables and chairs for groups. Most of the people in there on a Friday night seemed like they had just come from work. Definitely more of a hipster vibe. The bartender was really friendly and attentive. The draft list was phenomenal on its own, but the bottle list left my mouth watering. I got a bottle of Cable Car and enjoyed myself very much.

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.

Okay, the beer selection is amazing...both on tap and bottles. There is nothing to complain...if you want a beer location, go here. Itís impossible to be disappointed. A bit of a divey bar feel, dark at night while I was there. I was with a coworker, so we got a table, you had to order at the bar. The food was mediocre pub food, the service at the bar seemed friendly and attentive, but the food was slow. I donít know, apart from the beer, I didnít like it much, but like I said, the beer selection was outstanding.

A dive joint with a great beer selection in central San Diego. The food is typical bar food, though well prepared and quick. The beer selection was rather nice, complete with Lost Abbey Cable Car and Red Poppy. The Cable Car was $40 and the Red Poppy was $25. So, two beers into my night, I was down $65. I still had a third beer to go and dinner. The wait staff is helpful and friendly.

Good lord. The bottle list reads like a fucking novel. 50 taps. Ate one of the sausages. Drank a Cable Car. Bartender was awesome. She was super knowledgable, attentive w/o being annoying and very friendly. Iím buying the whole damn thing an moving it to Minneapolis.

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.

Been to Toronado SD a few times. Always fun- gets pretty crowded at night like a good dive bar. Prices are cheap and tap list is extensive, ever changing, and highlights west coast local breweries. Food is typical bar food but there are some yummy things in there and it is all prepared well. Good service. Best thing about this place is you can get Cable Car for $40. A steal.
