Visited with my wife on a recent trip to San Diego and Los Angeles.

Tried the following:
18th Street Brewery Dank Diesel (sample)
Kern River Just Outstanding IPA (draft)
Russian River Pliny The Elder (draft)

Beers ranged from very good to mind blowing. Also had a tasty house-made pretzel with cheese sauce. My wife enjoyed her Great Divide Strawberry Rhubarb. Service was solid as the bartender was quick to grab our drinks and she did a commendable job of recommending a beer for my oenophile partner in crime. Comfortable, relaxing atmosphere at the bar during the day, with lots of natural light coming in. Our overall experience was magnificent, and we would definitely come back.

Afternoon visit, sat at the bar

“Dress code: three tooth minimum”

NCAA hoops on tv, plenty on tap , bottles in the fridge, great play list on the speakers

Beer steins, bottles , signs, posters- this place sells beer- Russian river, stone, allagash, society, bocker, Firestone walker, etc

The beer tender recommended the thin sliced ribeye sandwich = excellent

Great bar

Dingy vibe, but don't let it fool you. Selection here is some of the best you'll find anywhere. Russian River among many other great choices. They don't have a fryer so don't expect bar food. Get the wings and a Pliny.

They have a lot of random old goodies and a pretty extensive bottle list.

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.
