First dinner in San Diego and it was just a hint at things to come.

I was kind of expecting a bar but ended up with a family restaurant that had a brewing system in the corner. I am not saying it was bad but just caught me off guard to run into so many kids. Everyone is laid back and having a good time with friends and family.

The selection of house taps and guest taps was pretty solid and reasonably priced.

I got the carlsbad pizza which was just awesome and highly recommended.

The bottle shop next door is another oddity. They have awesome bottles but people also treat it like a bar. More people chill in the store with beers and out back just having a good time.

WE ARE NOT IN TEXAS ANYMORE.

Great atmosphere with great beers and selection. Food was good, but definitely made better by the beer. Would happily return and recommend to friends.

Another San Diego (area) stop. This place was a lot of fun. Food was very good, nice selection of beers and our bartender was very engaging. Spent a lot of time with us explaining how things ran and just talking about the brand itself. Would love to spend more time.

Lots of IPAs offered, had a hard time choosing, so I relied on the bar staff.

Beers:
Ponto Session IPA 3.25 out of 5
Stratosphere IPA 3.75 out of 5
The Fish IPA 3.5 out of 5

Food: Had a BBQ chicken pizza, which was excellent.

Negative:
It's located on the main drag, so park and walk
Bottle shop opened at 5pm

Great rotating beer selection and amazing pizza. What more can you ask for? Oh that's right, not having 100 kids running around while you're trying to enjoy them. I swear every time we visit there is a little league or soccer team celebrating something. We still put up with it because the food and beer are top notch. And the bottle shop/tap trailer next door is really nice as well. You can drink bottles on premise or to go which is so nice.

We stopped for a late lunch after hitting the beach with friends. Cool, California beach crowd with both locals and tourist. Beer hit the mark and food was as expected for a pizza joint.

Ordering food was no problem, but getting beer was slow at times. Server was knowledgeable on Wee Heavy's which you don't normally find.

Parking in the back. Worth a stop, but if crowded, it's probably not the best place.

Food & Beer was great. It's a beach joint and self-service so it was a pain to get beer refills when lines got longer, but a great spot overall.

There is no service. I don't get the novelty here - you wait in line to order food, you wait in line to order beer,you have to hustle for a table. Food is mediocre. Beer is solid. But why bother?? Blech.
