Hamilton's is very worn in and towny with a wonderful beer lineup and great barkeeps. the place contains two spaces; you enter into one where the bar and seating are, and to the right there is a side space with pool, and a couple other games along with some more seating. the bar area ceiling is full of tap handles hanging from the rafters. the beer list is not printed; there is a chalk written lineup above the bar because the taps change so often.

quality and service are both great. correct glassware, great pours and friendly bar staff that are easy to talk to. the bar staff knows beer to some extent, but the friendly aura more than makes up for it.

selection is great. twenty to thirty taps with a great variety and fresh lines. this BA had two Cuvees, an IPA, a Black Lager, and a Russian Imperial Stout.

overall, this is a great beer bar in San Diego with a good variety of taps and a good atmosphere. fresh lines and friendly barkeeps; cheers!

Everything is great, except seating. My favorite place to indulge.

Without a doubt my favorite bar in San Diego. Just great vibes all around. Respectful and attentive bartenders. The food choices/prices are reasonable being this is ass deep in hipsterville. The drink prices could be better and often times the beer selection is over the top IPAs or beers that are just plain St. Archer quality. Love the shuffleboard and pool tables. Bar is kind of small but cozy. Can get packed and for that matter real difficult to find a place to sit. Music quality is top notch and often times late at night the bartenders will throw cool movies on the tube. Kind of a pain to get to but worth it. Thumbs up also for doing a good job listing the tap lists online.
