I liked this place. None of the beers really "wowed" me but they were all solid. They had a deal for 4 samples for $5, which was pretty good, plus we sat at the bar and got a free sample of an RIS aged on vanilla beans which was pretty well done considering I'm not a huge fan of vanilla beers. They a Red Ale that won a couple gold medals. I probably wouldn't have guessed it but it's not a style I drink a lot of so....Atmosphere was good, some TV's, nice bartender, not over crowded. Some of the menu items looked really good but we didn't get to try anything. Over all they had 10 beers on tap, one of which changes every month, plus a cask. They have bottles and growlers to go. A special they had when I was there was a full growler for $8. Good deal. If I'm in the area I will definitely go back here as opposed to La Jolla Brewhouse which is a few blocks away.

Stopped in here for dinner tonight. A nice corner location in the heart of downtown La Jolla, or what I can only assume is downtown at least. Atmosphere was hopping, tons of people at tables all over the place enjoying themselves. Quality was good across the board. Correct glasses and top notch food ingredients mixed with high quality fixes around the restaurant. Service was great, but also a bit overbearing. He never let my glass get empty before he was on top of us asking what I would like next. Selection was pretty good. All of their normal beers and two specialties on, a "sour" and their 25th Bourbon Barrel beer. I got a sampler of four and two were really good, the other two not so much. I went with the Piggy Bank, a triple meat mac n cheese, and it was really good. Prices were a little high on the food but my sampler was only $6. Overall a decent spot in La Jolla, glad we could finally check it out after talking about it for the last few nights.
