Visited in early afternoon, the place just started to fill. Pretty large place, big bar, screens giving the sports pub vibe. They had 15 taps on, nothing too exciting in terms of quality but beers from local breweries with low number of ratings so new rates are almost guaranteed. They offer flights, reasonably priced too. Service was good. Depending on time available worth visiting.

Typique centre-ville avec l’enrobage qui vient avec. Ceci dit, c’est le genre d’endroit à avoir des variantes de BCBS et de la Stella Artois.

A pretty big pub a bit outside the activity of Gaslamp. Dark interior, long bar, plenty of table. Solid tap lineup (I snagged a Bells Hell Hath No Fury) and real tasty looking food, though I didn’t have any. Barkeeps were friendly enough and quick, but more about getting me my beer and moving on. A solid option in the area.

Solid joint tucked a bit away from the vortex of partiers in Gaslamp (though an especially loud contingent wrecked the vibe of this place, something I can’t exactly hold against the establishment itself). Nice selection of local taps, good range of styles and brewers, and prices were reasonable. Good service, didn’t try the food. Nothing earth-shaking but certainly one of the better options in this area.

In the Gaslamp, but off of the main drag, so not quite as crowded. Good selection of taps and bottles, small but tasty menu of pub food. Indoor and outdoor seating available, $8 flights too.

Comments: It’s in Gaslamp so that is a plus, but it is a far cry from Neighborhood. Added this because they have a large bottle list and even though they have a small tap list, it includes a few local breweries that you can’t find elsewhere like Acoustic Ales, BNS, and others. It’s a fun bar with mini shuffleboard and a patio. You can grab an easy pint of something local. So it makes the RB places cut, but barely.
