Phenomenal. Toronado is a badass beer bar. very unassuming from the outside and on the inside, the acoustics are horrid and the place could use twice the seating and it still wouldn't feel cramped. appearances aside, the tap list is excellent and the bottle list is even better.
quality and service were both great. proper glassware, clean conditions, easygoing barkeeps with a love for craft beer, all the ingredients of a great beer bar can be found here.
selection was very deep. there is a bias towards belgian and belgian style beers, but all other style categories are represented nicely. Russian River had three taps, Lost Abbey had four taps, and a bunch of local stuff was available aside from the belgian stock. Very diverse lists; someone has put a lot of thought into what is being served here.
food is available, but was not tried.
overall, this is a must-visit for BAs around San Diego. it does not help that this BA is staying with his sister, which lives literally two hundred feet from the front door! highly recommended. cheers!
