Best beer bar in San Diego, just barely edging OíBrienís. Tons of great taps, plus a massive cooler with beers that I truly have never seen anywhere else in the county. Very cool bartenders that really know their stuff. Food, awesome. Fast nachos rule as does the monte cristo. The vibe is very laid back, dark, and local-friendly.

Hamiltonís is my go to beer destination in San Diego. I remember my first trip to Hamiltonís and how awestruck I was upon first glance at the chalkboard listing all the great beer offerings. I am always able to find something great to drink on draft. Next up you have the great bottle coolers with an every wider selection of great beer to choose from. Hamiltonís is, by far, my favorite place in San Diego to drink beer.

I love this place. They have great beer and a open door dog policy so I can bring my dogs.

Wicked tight. Itís a little too scene for me, people-wise, but you know what? THEY STAY OPEN TILL TWO AM ON THE WEEKENDS. Get a clue, San Diego. They had Pliny the Younger on tap and Redemption in the bottle, so I was totes impressed. Have been back twice and both times there was only one beer on the list that looked interesting. Bartenders the night I was in were just top notch - very calm, very helpful. A drive down thirtieth street, but North Park are posers anyway.

This is a nice little place nestled away in the South Park area of San Diego. Went there with Katie to get Pliny the Younger after OBriens had tapped out. Ambiance inside is quite a dive, with a little ghetto cafe next door that serves up pretty damn good burgers and grilled cheese sandwiches through a window linked to the bar room. Pretty small inside, with a good sized bar and just a few tables. The entire back area is taken up by pool tables and shuffleboard. Awesome bottle selection with plenty of Belgians and hard-to-find American brews too. We had some vintage Old Stock. Also available was RR Temptation, Beatification and others. Gets quite crowded during later hours, so reserve your seat at the bar early!

Great little neighbourhood dive. The owner is a stark raving beer nut! Place is generally crowded, lots of locals, knowledgeable staff. Blair makes sure to always have local micros on tap, the menu @ the restaurant is always interesting, using lots of fresh local ingredients. The bottle selection is always outstanding. One of my favorite places for a pint.

Packed house on a Thursday. Great selection on tap and in bottles. Properly maned bar that was helpful.

This is definitely has a neighborhood feel, and can be easy to miss. Inside is dark, with a local crowd and semi-dive bar appeal. The tap handle collection on the ceiling is a nice touch. The chalkboard behind the bar clearly shows the current tap list and prices, and stays current. There is also a bottle cooler behind the bar that is conducive to browsing from behind the bar. This is my type of place, great beer, locals, and nothing too fancy. If you are driving, be careful. Cops watch for patrons leaving and getting into their cars, and will find any excuse to pull you over.

Laid back atmosphere and very friendly staff. Wonderful bottle and draught selection. Relatively quiet, conversations could be had at a reasonable volume.

Pretty good beer selection in here, not the best Iíve seen, but they had some good brews on that I donít think Iíve seen since. Service was perfectly reasonable, although I did get there on openng and there werenít that many others in there. Seemed like a bit of a ílocalsí place and itís a bit out of the way in an area with not a lot else but houses. Worth a visit, though.

Went here for the Beer & Boobies 2008 being put on by Vac, zug4abby, sick_boy282 & sick_girl282. Very nice tap list. friendly folks, a little dark and dingy & dive-bar-ish. Since I live 70+ miles away, I wonít be going here often, but if I lived near it, I might given the tap list.
