Original review:
I packed into SD Brew Co with my crew today to watch the Chargers vs. Patriots game and was happy to be surrounded with many screaming Bolts fans. We had staked out a bar table at about 930a and kept that spot alive throughout the game. It was nice to see such an offering of beer deliciousness! With about 30 taps, including house beers original to SD Brew Co, their beer menu provided something for everyone's separate tastes. We snacked on the usual bar fare, nachos, pizza, chicken. Others even took advantage of the Sunday morning breakfast served and dined on plates of eggs, bacon, breakfast burritos and the ever tantalizing Captain Crunch-covered french toast.

I wasn't too impressed with the service, but I will excuse that from my review due to the crowd present for the game. Beers were plentiful and the company was incredible. I found SD Brew Co a great place to enjoy a tasty beer with friends and will likely return to sample more of their house beers.

Updated review: I've returned to the SD Brew Co. and will have to amend my original review. This place it totally underrated, IMO. They've got a world class IIPA in Hopnotic. Along with some other great house brews, they always have something interesting and/or jaw dropping on tap. I always forget I live so close to this place, but I try to work it into rotation every so often.

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.
