we'd heard of the 30th street gauntlet but, whilst at alesmith, were informed that we had to make the trek here to see some new tricks. the place was fairly packed, pizzas looked delicious, and the tap selection was very nice. plenty of things from all the local guys, much deliciousness, including the new alesmith decadence. ran into one of the brewers from alesmith whom we'd met earlier in the day, enjoyed a decadence with him, talked of silly beer things, and the future of the place, got to meet one of the owners, who seemed a very nice woman. they were in the process of getting what looked like a two barrel setup ready for future happy fun time. a wonderful mix of family and sexy, gearing up for a friday night in lovely san diago.

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.
