Relatively busy during the night times with a 15-20 minute wait.
Beer selection is all Coronado’s stuff. Food is generously sized and reasonably priced. Staff are as expected.
Ambiance is a simple open air patio-like dining and TV’s in every corner showing the latest ball game.
I stopped in here while killing time in Coronado. They have 20 taps (only 19 were on when I was there) of their brews going. Six regulars and the rest are seasonal or special brews. The atmosphere initially struck me like an Applebees, which was kind of depressing. The bar area was way too small. When I was there it was busy but the small bar made it seem packed. I was going to get a flight but since I had no place to sit I ended up grabbing a couple of pints instead. The service was pretty good- the bar keepers were busy but fairly attentive. This is a pretty solid stop in Coronado.
Visited during SD Beer Week, a 5 or so minute stroll from the ferry terminal a modern looking brewpub, tasting flights are available, just fill in a postcard with you choice of 5.
Offer a few souvenirs and some unusual items, nice feel to the place, sat at the bar and got served efficiently, scooping in the range quickly.
Nice place. Worth the journey and some nice views of San Diego into the bargain.
Stopped by on a weekend afternoon, a little crowded, but not too bad. There were over 10 beers on tap, good selection to choose from. Service was decent, might have been a little short staffed. Food was good. Most of their beers were sold in the liquor store right next door, very convenient. Definitely worth a stop.
Whoever voted this top 2014 World Beer Cup Mid size brewpub needs to get out a bit more. Sure its a fun spot, in an idealic location, but the top to bottom beer quality isn’t there. Inside is a bit dark, wish the bar was larger as it was packed despite a slow day. Only 3 tables outside was strange. The regular lineup was extremely disappointing. The Idiot was ok the rest should be skipped. They did have another 16 or so one off draft beers. I had 3 lovely ipas, but the rest where sub standard. Service was nice and helpful. I’d come by if I lived here but this isn’t a destination spot nor should it be on the top of any lists.
Visited on Sunday 20/04/14 around 5pm, located just over 5 minutes walk from the ferry stop to SD.
The place was starting to fill out with Sunday evening diners but they were happy for me to take a table of 4 despite the fact I wasnt eating. Modern looking brewpub with brew kit visible, function kind of place, patio out front which was full and a decent vibe about the place.
23 taps dispensing 6 regulars and fairly impressive 17 seasonals/one offs. Tasting flight was $11 for 5, the service was prompt and most beers decent.
Well worth a trip out to!
Stopped in twice, once for lunch and once for a beer. Cool place on an awesome island, reasonable prices ($9 for 5 pour flight), food was excellent and service was very good. About 20 beers available on tap.
