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.

I love these guys because they gave me Alpine Nelson and then Pliny when A N ran out - a superior customer experience in all respects

This is a small bar not far from the ballpark. All the window were opened for loads of fresh air. A funky tile wall of San DIego takes up the whole back space. The rest of the space is made up of metal, dark woods, and concrete and has a warehouse feel. The bar seats about 12.

On this visit there were 28 beers on draft. Loads of local California beers including Stone Vertical 12.12.12., Alpine, Mother Earth, Lagunitas, and Green Flash. The beers I had were very good and fresh.

This is a must stop for any BA in San Diego.

Visited 17 Nov 2013, 2:00-3:00pm.

After a couple hours strolling around the surrounding blocks, I stopped in at the welcoming Neighborhood. I'd read about the place here on BA and had meandered my way around the Gaslamp Quarter (enjoying architectural gems, new and old), before a pause for beer.

Located right at the corner of 8th & G, it's a fairly non-descript storefront. Inside is a pleasant indoor/outdoor space with concrete floors, wood and black tiles. On one wall, there's a nice mosaic in monochrome of San Diego's downtown skyline. Above, there's taxidermied wildlife and some simply stunning "artwork" of both Jimi Hendrix and Jesus Christ enjoying their hamburgers... wow! Otherwise, its a zig-zagging wooden bar wrapped around thick I-beam columns. To the right, it's polished stainless taps, unmarked; to the center, it's 25-30 brewery handles and a friendly bartenderess (Bree on this afternoon). A tiny walk-in cooler behind the bar holds dozens of bottles.

Beer selection is REALLY good, an array of local/regional taps well over 30 deep. From the lengthy chalkboard list above the bar I picked a Craftsman "Heavenly Hefeweizen" (super refreshing!) and then several generously-poured tastings of Stone Sublimely Self Conscious, Great Bowman's Beard AND Witty moron Dark Wheat. Ultimately I picked none of the above: Green Flash Treasure Chest was what I picked; I liked the sample but wished for something else about halfway through the pour. Lots of variety overall on the menu, many styles. Prices are generally $6 and up for pours, so certainly not the cheapest bar in town.

Biggest disappointment? Not getting food. I read (later) about the terrific burger/sandwiches, starters, etc and, frankly, wasn't hungry when visiting. Apparently, they have something against traditional ketchup, so they've crafted a dozen or so special sauces to make up for their lack of Heinz or Hunt's.

Dining in will be rectified whenever I get to return - and I will return!
