Place in Balboa Park, visited after San Diego Zoo and stroll through Balboa. Our visit was around midday, so it wasn’t too crowded, got a nice table at the patio and enjoyed the break from walking and sun. Mostly local beers over 15-20 taps, some interesting ones. Not exactly a location you’d go to just for beer, but if you’re visiting Balboa and/or Zoo this is the best place.

This BLAH and Tiger!Tiger! associated place is located in historic Balboa Park and offers a nice respite from the walking and museums famous in the area. We enjoyed the outdoor only seating and a few beers alongside some well-prepared food. They seem to stay fairly busy and the food wait can be a bit long. The tap selection is mostly SD County stuff along with a few regional wineries on tap. Pleasant staff.

Situé en plein Parc Balboa, c’est évidemment magnifique et en communion avec l’environnement. Les prix sont un peu élevés, la sélection modeste et locale mais le grand attrait est ce qui se passe autours. C’est assez rare que j’ai l’occasion d’y aller mais si vous faites la tournée des musées, gardez-vous un peu de temps pour Panama 66.

Comments: If you are in Balboa Park for museums or concerts, Panama 66 is more than a legit stop for food and craft beer. Food looked very good, but I did not eat here so can’t speak to it directly. Updated menu, excellent presentation. Tap selection is quite impressive including specialties from Acoustic Ales, even one made for the bar and the nearby museums. Stone, Green Flash, Lost Abbey, Alesmith, Acoustic, Monkey Paw and more on tap. Excellent variety. Proper glassware. Prices are not gouged like you would expect for a touristy area. Impressive, will be back!
