Since the fabled Toronado has finally opened in SD, it has been the buzz amongst beer geeks and drunks alike. I had my chance to spend hard-earned cash here last night and I was not disappointed. The 50 beautifully mounted taps offer endless selection of choice beer from across the world. The space is quite large and it does get pretty loud, but it is bearable. Behind the bar lies two beautiful bottle coolers, as well. If you're not careful you could go for broke after a bottle or two of the rarities they offer. My trip included a Rodenbach Grand Cru draft and Alpine Beer Co.'s Chez Monieux (bottled). Both were served appropriately and I couldn't have been happier to enjoy great beers such as these. There is a different vibe that other SD beer bars, but diversity is welcomed and it is nice to have another place to go in North Park. I'm looking forward to trying their food, but will wait until they release the full menu.
