Anchoring the 30th St. beer corridor at busy El Cajon Blvd. It's yet another hip beer joint with upscale hip food. I counted 22 taps with a few Belgians (Rodenbach, Lucifer, St. Louis) and national oddities like DFH Theobroma, but mostly California beers. Two from Craftsman, Hangar 24, Bear Republic, Lost Abbey, Alesmith, Mongo from Port, Firestone, Sierra Nevada, etc. Emphasis seems to be on change. Service, even at the bar, is like Blind Lady: stand in line and pick your brew while they ring it up. Nice glassware in different, appropriate sizes. Many beers are 0.25 liter, a few in 0.5. The "happy hour" special is a full liter for $8.

Food is interesting though pricey. Unusual pizzas. Oysters in various ways are a feature. The fried oyster Po Boy was ok, but I didn't care much for the soft roll. Clam chowder had actual bivalves but was way salty with bacon. Salads and bread sampler plate looked great, I'll try that next time.

Spacious place with no TVs in the concrete floor old garage style. Take your choice-- uncomfortable metal drafting stools at the small bar or uncomfortable wood benches at the picnic tables. A few sidewalk tables for smokin' and mopin'. At a recent visit they were talking about an actual garden patio in the back, which would be great. Supposed to be the only restaurant with a parking lot on 30th St.

The place was started just this fall by Lee Chase, who spent 10 years brewing for Stone and is a co-owner of Blind Lady. The hope is for Tiger Tiger to get a license to move Automatic brewing to this location. They also talk about an in-house bakery.
