Hamilton’s is already a beer bar worthy of several long visits despite not being open all that long. The bar is pretty damn big, and has a shuffleboard table and two pool tables without being overcrowded. The prices are very solid, usually 4-6 bucks a pint for some world class SD beers, and the selection is awesome. On an average day, locals ranging from Alesmith and Stone to Lightning and Karl Strauss. Fair amount of imports. Always at least a few badass IPAs. When they do a special event, look out. I just pulled up the web page and they have Nelson, Expo, and Bad Boy coming up. Hohohoho. Bottle list is good but not the best I’ve ever seen.
Classic San Diego old school place, small, scruffy, lived in. Ceiling covered with tap handles. Just three booths, two pool tables and the bar. Efficient knowledgeable staff. Mostly shaker pints, oh well. Great selection, solid bottle list.
Visited during an early afternoon on the Super Bowl Sunday in February 2017. This place was dark and with quite few guests. The selection was nice, Pliny the Elder was one of the beers on tap. The service was decent. I walked from my hotel, The Lafayette, it took around one hour. Next time I will stay a bit longer at this place.
Visited on 12th November 2014. Got a cab from Toronado to here. It’s a large bar with lots of tables. It was very busy and we managed to squeeze into a table in the corner. A good range of beers on tap with a lot from Green Flash. Only available in pints which slows rating down a bit unless in group. Prices were decent and service good. Liked this place.
Cozy pub in nice neighbourhood. 28 taps serving fine craft beers. Good prices like pliny the elder for 6.5$. But big disappointment is that they are not serving half pints, only pints. They do have selected beer flight but you can’t make your own flight. I don’t get it. This same thing brings disappointment almost every time when going to good beer bar. Only russian river in santa rosa knows how to do this thing.
A little let down on my visit. Very divey, overcrowded, smelly. I was passed over by the bartender a few times before getting my first beer. And though they have about 30 taps, they had a Green flash tap takeover and nearly every tap was beer that I get back on the east coast. I might try it again but not this trip.
Dark and grungy pub with tons of taps and very friendly service. Two pool tables and a shuffleboard table. Great selection. Inside was very divey and "metal" feeling. Packed on a Thursday night but it was easy to get some beer and space to hang out. Well curated tap list.

A very dark pub, but nice interieur because they have all their old tap handles hung up on the ceiling. The bottle list is crazy. 3 Fonteinen Intense Red, Golden Blend and stuff like that. Service is meh-I-don’t-care-like, but fast enough. Food is okay, right what you need when you’re hungry. Taps are quite cheaply priced sometimes. Dive bar yes, but a fun place.
