A bit west from North Park. Has a patio but we focused on the indoor-bar. Decent beers, good service, average prices. Did not try the food.

Une brasserie d’expérience qui produit des bières ordinaires dans une vocation gai totalement assumée. Un endroit unique et amorphe que j’ai seulement visité en après-midi, je crois bien que le soir ça lève si je me fie au Quartier.

Nice little brewpub. Good atmosphere. Fairly small taplist. A few guest taps and their own brews of course. Brews are pretty tasty. A bit pricey, but a decent place to pop into if you’re in the area and want a brew.

Place was very nice with large wood rafters and a glassed in seating area out front. Pizza was good but not great. Just like the beer. Service was excellent and people were very friendly.

A nice place to stop and have a pint or two. The interior is dominated by the central bar and a few tables around it. A large outdoor patio, too. They had six house beers on when I stopped in and a large guest selection. The house beers were solid but nothing special. Service was attentive and quick. The pizza looked awesome, though I didn’t have a chance to try any. A decent place and worth a stop if in the area. Beers get the job done but really aren’t worth going out of your way for. Still, I had a nice time and the patio would bring me back for some beers.

Stopped by here since the people we were visiting lived 10 min away. Decent looking brew pub with mediocre beer. Wings were good though and they did have a half decent guest tap list - they just need to work on their in-house beers.

This place is awesome. Beer was just OK. Some really good, others not so. They claim to be the first "Gay Brewery", and their names represent. We went on our quest to hit every brewery in San Diego County. We got there at 3:15 when they didn’t open ’til 4:00. We told the guy what we were up to, and he invited us in early and took great care of us. I’d go back, if just for the fun schtick.

Interesting, a gay brewery. I dont think I’d ever heard of the Hillcrest area but driving down University Ave made it obvious that if there was a place for a gay brewery that this would be it. Everything in this place is over done, to the point that I can only assume that it’s for shock value. Everything from the way the servers talk to the names of the beers (which are ridiculous by the way) is over the top. That said the place seems very friendly and the service was good. Didnt stick around very long, just long enough to try the beers and leave.

The beers were not very good. All overly sugary and generic tasting. I see no reason to go back here.

Set back off of the street, so it can be hard to find if you’re just walking/driving by on University. Big open bar area with some tables outside on the patio. Large list of beers with 8 house beers on tap (one was missing during our visit). The service was quite good, and people seemed to be enjoying the pizzas. The beers were decently priced, but not very good, unfortunately.
