Update 12.1408:

Living so close to Hamilton's has spoiled me. However, I am still excited to see the quality, and quantity, of great beer that makes through the doors here. The tap list always hosts crowd favorites, but also keeps beer geek's interest with new and unique offerings from many different breweries. I was excited to see the addition of the second bottle cooler, because I know Blair has many great bottles stashed away for later release. Hamilton's continues to be one of the best beer destinations in this saturated city.

I've been back, and back, and back about 20+ times. I might give them 7 out of 5 stars if I could. I've been there on every night of the week, at every time you could imagine. 3 plasmas and a beer in my hand keep my eyes glazed over and a smile on my face. The expansive selection of beer never fails to impress me. A new bottle awaits me upon each return. Second Saturday's have been permanently etched into my calendar. I couldn't ask for anymore out of any bar in SD County. If you get the chance, you have to give them a shot.

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.
