First time checking this place out and Im glad I went!

We got there about one and there were only 2 other people in the bar just hanging out which I thought it was great that it wasnt packed.

The beer selection is awesome and the have some brews you wont find anywhere else. I got an Alpine Ugly BIPA which was amazing.

We also split a veggie sloppy joe which wasnt bad but nothing special.

The bartender was cool and we chatted with her for most our visit. I will definitly be back but hopefully I can check it out early again and miss the crowds.

Great craft beer bar, rustic and well-used. Place has a bit of a biker bar vibe. Around 30 beers on tap - stellar CA offerings - and an incredible bottle list. Quintessential San Diego beer bar.

Went twice on my trip, very cool laid back vibe. Bartender was awesome and very friendly since I was into beer. Great Cali selection and amazing to find Cable Car bottles. Expensive but sick bottle list. Average bar food.

A great bar and loved being able to order Cable Car but I actually preferred Hamiltons to Toronado.

I loved this place. It's a craft brew dive bar, and the selection for me (coming from the East Coast) was tremendous. Had my first Pliny the Elder here and my only wish is that I could have had more time to enjoy my time there over a few more beers.
