Visited with Beerandblues2 on an early monday evening. Nice old, little dark pub. English pub atmostphere, dark wood, long bar, 4 tv's showing each own program, fortunately turned all the way down, so that the one could hear the nice music. 30 or so tap's, half Monkey Paw, Coronado, South Norte and other guests. Broad selection of styles, more classic english style approach that most breweries in SD, just a few ipa's, brown ales, 2 smoked beers, barley wine and 2 gruits. Fine, not outstanding quality of the beers. Good fast and friendly service. Good value. Would like to go again.

With it's dive bar vibe and crappy location in downtown SD, reminded me a little of Toroado SF nad/or Magnolia. Old wood. Decent selection and service, both guest taps (no sample size pours) and house beers (flights). Might be worth another visit...

A dark and dive bar type that is still warm and friendly. Service was awesome and the bartender was knowledgeable and we had a great time. Selection is large and they have guest taps and some bottles as well. Food is basic but good quality and filling. Price is good for the area. Overall, not the best beer, but still a fantastic stop.

A bit of a dinger dive bar feel to the place with the bar on one side of the square room with a good amount seating available. Bartender was quite chatty and knew a bit about the beer. They had 30 taps that were probably split 50/50 between their own beers and others. Samplers were available. The cheesesteak was very good but not at the east coast level. Prices were on the low end. A bit rough but a great spot!

Dive brewery sort of thing not far from the airport, visited with BeerandBlues2. Flights are available for their beers (about a dozen) and full pours of the guest taps (about a dozen). Kitchen was closed when we arrived. Good service, good music, comfortable place.

A pretty grungy feeling bar in what felt like a more grungy part of downtown. Large selection of both house beers and guest taps. Flights of 4 available for $8. Service was friendly and allowed samples. Beer quality was good overall, especially for the higher gravity beers. Worth a stop when in town, and perhaps the best downtown brewery stop.

Visited on 12th November 2014. Situated in a residential area this is a reasonably sized brewpub. It is dark inside and sparsely decorated. 30 taps on offer with around half of their own beers. Tasters available in flights of 4. Decent enough feel to the place. Prices decent, beer was decent. Service good. Nice enough place.

Really like this college hangout but it gets really busy. No table service and a small food menu somehow doesn’t reduce the great beer selection and excellent tasting food.

Small bar with decent seating for the size. Not a lot going on in the way of decoration, just a bar and a bunch of seating. Beer selection is quite nice. A fair amount of their brews with loads of guests. the guys running the bar and the food portion were chill and nice. Not the most attentive but still pretty quick. I had a the philly cheese-steak, which was as close to philly and I’ve had since leaving there. It was real good. Overall, a standup beer bar with good food. I’ll be back for sure.

Monkey Paw sits in residential downtown San Diego on the edges of the Gaslamp District. The building has street parking and is reminiscent of dark and dank English pubs. There are a number of house beers alongside a few guest taps and a fair bottle selection. They do serve food but we did not partake on this visit; I will revisit and try the food. I could hang out in this place quite a while.
