Generally they have several beers from many of the local breweries, like Karl Strauss, Green Flash, Stone (including 15th Ann.), Alesmith, and Ballast Point (including Sculpin). A few Belgians on tap, including Dupont Saison. Being August, there don't seem to be as many interesting seasonals around. Big, readable chalkboards PLUS printed list with proper statistics are a hit with me.

Food was quite decent, we had a stuffed red pepper with very good red sauce, and a Greek salad. Daily specials, lots of pasta and lasagna.

Noticed that first Wednesdays they have "Local Art and Beer," but I have not checked it out. Prices are not bad, lots of room, not very noisy, and the street-facing wall rolls up for the sea air. We'll be back, it's a better atmosphere for tasting especially in this neighborhood of stumbling partygoers. While it doesn't have the oddities of the SD Toronado, it's about eight times more pleasant a place.

The TapRoom is located are Garnett Ave. in Pacific Beach which is happening area with a ton of bars, restaurants, and shops. The bar/restaurant front is open air and the area inside is spacious with bar seating and tables/booths. Nothing outstanding about the atmosphere but the open air front is nice. The great thing about the TapRoom is the beer selection and quality. If you want to check out what’s currently on tap, visit their website where you can find a current tap list which includes the percentage of beer remaining in each keg along with kegs on deck . They have a great selection of 50 tap beers which you can purchase flights of or pints. I enjoyed some Pliny the Elder, Alesmith Speedway, and Port Night Rider when I was there. If you can't find something you would like on tap (which would be hard to believe) they have an extensive bottle list. When I visited, their bottle list included 5 or 6 variations of Eclipse ranging from $40-$50/ bottle. They also have your basic bottles at a reasonable price. I had some garlic bite appetizers and they were above average for aps but nothing ground breaking. I enjoyed my visit to the TapRoom and would recommend checking it out if you're in the area.

I'm not a local and do not know the overall quality of beer places in SD but this place has the right ingredients from my perspective. I really like that they have the local breweries well covered and that the staff knows a decent amount about what they pour. The vibe is a bit more sports bar than i like but its open air and there is music playing not sportscast soundtrack. I just had appetisers but they were above average.

If you are in the pacific beach area and are looking for a place with some local selection you shoyld not be disappointed.

This place rocks all the great brews from Pliny to sours. Hot babes work their that know the beer they sell. I love the owners and staff. Great beer and food. Thats why i go their almost daily. With 45 taps of craft beer how could you go wrong. their beer events are super bomb and they get the rearest beers on the market. They also have a very nice happy hour that rocks.

they also Do an event called L.A.B. which stands for local artist and beer. so they support the local arts as well. They have been around for 5 years now and really got this down.
