This is the first brewpub I've ever been in where they charge more for their own brew than for a guest brew. Seems a bit counterproductive. Next time I'll just drink the guest brew, which was better anyway. I'll leave it at that...
Sierra Nevada Chico IPA over the Hopnotic IPA, or perhaps if Chico is not available, then perhaps Alesmith IPA over Hopnotic IPA.
Wait, this just in, Hopnotic is actually the Beer of the Month this Month(April), so perhaps the regular price is even higher, who knows?

San Diego BrewCo is one of my favorite places to go to grab a good beer and some good food. I haven't ran into anything on the menu that I haven't liked. The beer selection is pretty good, the occasionally have Pliny on tap. They have a good selection of house beers, nothing spectacular but good. Would be nice if the servers knew a little more about the beers, but if they don't have the answer they're more than happy to get it for you, very friendly staff though. Great place to go on a Saturday or Sunday to catch the game. Highly recommended!

Apparently this place is the reincarnation of Shakey's Pizza from the 60s with a 21st century beer list. Brick walls, little curtains on the street side, big and roomy. Reasonably quiet in the "family dining" side, and booming rock in the bar side.
A standard southern California selection of locals with no particular standouts. Four from Sierra Nevada that are less common. Belgians included Rodenbach Grand Cru, Delerium Tremens, and a Liefmann's. A few other Europeans-- who would have thought of this place for Marston's of Wolverhampton, Oyster Stout on nitro? Big beer board in the bar had all the facts, styles, and abvs. Only $4.50 for their own pints.
Menu looked slightly more interesting than some, but the Brewman's plate was kind of icky, aside from a good spicy sausage. Should have had the nachos. Barmaids were unfazed, our waitress was quite attentive. Not exactly beer fanatics, but tried to be helpful.
