Visited a couple of times on a recent trip to San Diego.
This is the place to go in the heart of downtown as most of the other highly rated beer bars are north of downtown.
The atmosphere is typical of a good craft beer bar: friendly, fun, trendy, etc. The tap list seemed to be about 30 strong with a lot of really good local and other US craft beer. Bottle list was also very stellar (although I did not order from it). My only complaint is that they didn't really have anything all that rare on tap over the 3 days that I was there. Also, very heavily focused on AleSmith. Didn't see any Alpine on tap while I was there, which was disappointing as well. More Bruery and Lost Abbey would have been nice as well. Selection also included some Belgians and covered all styles in general.
Food was good as well. Had a couple of different items over my three visits which were all good.
Service was friendly and knowledgeable but a touch slow at times.
