This place is decent.
What I like: custom samplers, half-interesting draft list, good sweet potato fries.
What I don’t like: the crowd, the indifferent servers, the half-interesting draft list.
On the worldwide spectrum, this feels like a beer bar that isn’t trying that hard. For this particular neighborhood, it’s above average, but I’d probably direct oneself to the The Local for a better selection of interesting local beer.
A favourite in the Gas lamp area. I counted 32 beers on draft including Stone Enjoy By 4/2016 and Ballast Point Coconut Victory at Sea and Pineapple Sculpin, all of which were excellent. Food was also very good.
Pleasant little pub in Gaslamp district. Stopped in for dinner, and found that they had a pretty good beer list. A bit noisy, with rock on the sound system and sports TVs going. Mixed crowd of locals and tourists, 20s-40s. 32 beers on tap, almost exclusively US craft. Flights of four 5-oz. glasses come in four varieties. The bartender selects the beers in the first three: Locals Only for $8; Hop Lovers for $9; and Belgian Strong for $10. The Create Your Own flight costs $10. Very passable pub grub menu.
A decent spot in the Gaslamp with a good (but not great) selection of draft offerings and prices that are just a tad high. Tasters are available at $10 for a set of 4 x 4oz pours, which is a bit higher than you’ll usually find around San Diego. Although, this is in a relatively touristy area, so the prices should be expected. Draft selection focuses on SD County beers, with a handful of other egional selections. Visitors should have no problem finding new things to try, whereas locals would probably only find one or two new ones. Not a bad place to stop if you’re sightseeing downtown, but not worth going out of your way for.
A pretty solid beer bar in the touristy area of town. Fairly polished but not over the top refined. A good and wide range of styles available on tap. From golden ales, to stouts, to sours. there weren’t many others there when I stopped by on a Sunday night and they were training a new bartender, but service was still very nice. A good option in the area.
Visited the 8th February 2015 - A cool place in downtown. Good selection on tap for reasonable price. The atmosphere is nice and not so noisy. The food is ok also with reasonable price. A nice place but not at the best.
Je me souviendrai à jamais de cet endroit comme le premier ’’watering hole’’ en tant que résident de SD. Rien de spectaculaire sauf quelques luminosité locales et/ou des surprises occasionnelles. Un des bons arrêts du centre-ville qui ne regorgent pas de taproom excitants.
Stopped here for lunch on a Wednesday. Place was mostly empty. Had a decent burger and a flight or two. Beer selection was good, but not great. Food was the same. Worth a visit if you are in the area and need lunch.
18th March 2014, walked here from The Monkey Paw Brewpub. Modern and minimalistic interior with the bar all along the left wall as you enter. Wood used a lot in the design. We sat just inside with the window wide open so we could feel the evening air cooling. Two flights for me, the wife drinking wine. Beers were diverse and interesting with some heavy hitters (alcohol wise) within the selection on offer. Mostly local stuff, but of course all new to me, being a Brit on tour. Service seemed fine, we were left alone and didn’t have any food. All in all a pleasant place to watch the world walk by while sipping a beer or three, it was eight actually! At $10.00 a flight I though a bit expensive, but when you factor in the strength of some (4 at 10% ABV) I suppose it was OK.
