We stopped here on an early Saturday afternoon, located on the east side of the 805 Freeway, surprised a place like this was in this neighborhood, walked in and saw a bistro-like atmosphere, bar directly in front of me, saw they used proper glassware immediately, clean and brand new, liked the way this place was set up although it was quite small, heard the pizza was good but was not hungry since we went right after lunch, took a while to get a bartender's attention, not many people were working but that was expected since business was slow, I ordered Automatic, their only house made beer at the moment but they were out, seemed like they had not had it for a long time too, I got a Dogfish Head Punkin instead and paid close to what I would get a four pack for at the store, not much interesting stuff on tap but it is all craft or Belgian, probably will only go back to this place once they start brewing, which is based on a pending license I believe, or when they have special events because I have heard some cool local beers show up at those, would definitely stop by if I was down there this weekend for San Diego Beer Week, still worth checking out regardless

A different kind of place than I'm used to.
It kind of has the feel of a German beer hall. You walk to the front counter, where the beer menu is listed, order food/beer, and have a seat at community style tables. You may be forced to interact with others (gasp!).
The food menu isn't very large, mainly focusing on snackage and pizza. The quality is nothing to baulk at though! The Breakfast pizza is a stand out.
The selection isn't as large as some places like Hamilton's and only focuses on taps and no bottles. Not to say they don't have a few gems always rotating, including the occasional cask!
Overall it's a fun little place ideal for stopping in for a weekday dinner or to begin a pub crawl.

Visited on 4th of July a/m/ when the BLAH nicely opened early to allow viewing of the World Cup match. About 24 beers on tap, including one cask from Stone. Good variety with the selection favoring Calif. beers (including Alesmith's Speedway and Horny Devil as well as RR Pliny [Elder]) but also including a number of internationals. Food has a very good reputation but the kitchen was closed due to the holiday.

This is my favorite beer-oriented place in San Diego. Automatic Brewing's revolving eclectic brews are featured, but they bring in some good stuff from other brewers and collaboration. The atmosphere reminds me of the best of what is offered in an English pub without trying to be British. The food is fantastic and my faves are the Belgian Frites and the Bacon and Egg Pizza. I never get bored of the beers or anything else here.
