Went here after the Alesmith release, on April 1, 2008 since it was only about 8 or so miles from the brewery down the 15 and the CA-52. Located in a cramped little strip mall, which I passed by once and had to make a U-turn. Once inside it's about an average size bar, about 10 stools, and a few tables. About 15 taps, no BMC there - ones I remember are Guinness, Murphy's, SNPA and Harvest Ale, Pliny the Elder, and Green Flash IPA, with the emphasis on hoppy San Diego and CA beers. Had an Alpine Pure Hoppiness, my first beer ever from Alpine, and a Ballast Point Fathom IPL, for $4.50 and $4 respectively, very good prices compared to Orange and LA Counties, though I'm not sure if they were on Happy Hour or not. Extensive bottled selection - some of the pricer Belgian's go upwards of $20-30, Angel's Share was $30, but not a bad price if you wanted to try it, the markups aren't outrageous here. A nice guy even purchased and opened up a 2003 Cantillon Lou Pepe Kriek and let about 5 of us at the bar try it. Overall, I had a pretty fun time, had a long converstation with fellow BA seaoflament over a couple pints. A very nice bar in San Diego, next time I'm down here I'll go back for sure.
