Stopped here with t0rin0 awhile back, but never got around to posting my review.
Don't really bother trying to park in their lot, just go down one of the side streets and find a place somewhere down there.
We walked in and looked at the beer list, and there wasn't really much going on. Perhaps we were led astray by the classification of this place as a "brewpub". There were no house beers on, but a few decent choices on-tap.
No food was ordered, but it looked like they made a fine pizza from the appearance and smell of them. But you definitely pay for them...
The people were nice and the service was quick, but I guess I was just overall let down due to the lack of house beers and the fairly high prices.
You're better off heading a few blocks down to someplace like Toronado.

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.
