Stopped in here while on vacation because it was on this beer fly list of brew-pubs. While trying to navigate downtown San Diego (one of the hardest cities to get around in) we finally found this place and parked OK. A little bit uneasy walking up to the place, wondering if the car would be the same when we came out, etc, but once we got inside we were pleasently suprised. The waiter was very friendly and I ordered the 6-taster, to get a feel for the different brews. Each beer was true to the style and I enjoyed each one. The Red Trolley was my least favorite as I had a hard time considering it as an ale, but it went down just fine. Their beers are wonderful, although not anything to write a rave review about.
The food, wow, that was the best meal we had during our week visit to southern Cal. The three of us each really enjoyed our meal and we got to taste each other's.

This place is a must-visit for anyone interested in good beer and good food. I wish they would open up one here in Bozeman, we sure need a quality place like this!

Oh, the car was just fine when we left.
