One of my favorite places in San Diego to eat and have some beers. The atmosphere is nice, lots of small and large tables throughout the restaurant. Order food at one spot, then take two steps to the left and order your beer from the bar.

Great selection of SD and other Southern CA beers. I have always been impressed by the selection here. Seems like they go out of their way to get unusual things that other pubs do not carry. I really like this. They have started brewing small batch house brews as well, which I've not tried but look forward to trying next time I am down there.

Service is great. Never had a problem. I really enjoy the food. Lots of great vegan options, including some very tasty vegan pizzas. Great to see this as far too few places like this have inclusive menus.

Crowd is always pretty lively and it can get crowded and maybe a tad loud, but never in an unenjoyable fashion.

Highly recommended if you are anywhere near downtown San Diego or the 30th St. corridor.

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.
