Stopped here on my third day down in San Diego this past week, right down the street from the Linkery on 30th Street which I have not been to yet, anyways similar to the neighborhood feel in San Francisco but not quite the same, doggie door is almost identical though, place seemed too nice inside to get that same feel from the original too, did have a cool jukebox, everything was super clean, brand new beer fridges and chairs, bathroom had a hole in the wall from a fist most likely but had lots of funny comments around written in various pen markings, had a bratwurst and it was quite good, the other sausages I saw go by me looked great as well so food is good and that is something they have up on SF since they do not sell it anymore, tap selection was decent but again the location up north had them beat, some of the standouts on tap were New Belgium Eric's Sour Ale, Rodenbach Grand Cru, Avery Ale to the Chief, and Green Flash Le Freak, I had a Bear Republic Up in Smoke which is a steam beer, prices are great during happy hour and one dollar off all taps, which makes most beers only three dollars, bottle list was great and the Lost Abbey stuff blew my mind, still had some bottles of Cable Car for $50 but you have to drink them there because they do not have a to go license, also had Cuvee de Tomme, Older Viscosity, and Angel's Share, the three Russian River sours but no more Toronado 20th unfortunately, Abyss, and many more, place is crazy inexpensive and I will most certainly be going back, the owner Ian is a cool guy which helps things out even more, check it out when you can (1,603 characters)

Great great selection. Very crowded but was a Saturday night. Wasn't too small so didn't feel overwhelmed. (106 characters)

Visited Toronado in San Diego earlier this year. Was out on business and I had only had a few hours, so I went there alone on a weeknight. Amazing offerings and very friendly staff. I ordered a pint of The Pupil from Societe, arguably one of SD's finest IPAs. Outstanding. Turned out that the guy sitting next to me was a brewer at a local place, and he invited me to visit his tasting room up the street. As I asked to settle up, the bartender comped me the pint. What a great vibe. I left her a tip 2x the price of the pint. Can't wait to get back there. (556 characters)
