We didn't eat here but the pizza smelled so good. Great beer selection and friendly bartender. Kind of a casual sports bar.

I actually liked this place until the next morning when I had food poisoning from the pulled pork sandwich that lasted for 3 days including my flight back to Sac. It has good beer and lots of sports on TV but the pulled pork didn't even taste good and about killed me the next few days.

Sundays during football season loud. If you like that kind of thing, go for it. But if your looking for a quiet place to grab a quick bite, go elsewhere. Food is on the salty side. Their house brews are pretty good.

Typical brewpub menu, with burgers, salads, sandwiches, and more. Food was very good, and the entree salads that we ordered were large. While they are a microbrewery and have about 8 of their beers on draft, they also have about 20 other craft beers on tap. If you are a beer drinker, there should be a style on draft for... More

We were out searching for places for a pending retirement party, this was our second stop and we were very happy with the venue! We ultimately don't think this will be where the party is held, but we certainly plan on another visit! Parking was a bit of a problem and we ended up taking a short walk from our... More

Had a great time at this cute, friendly bar. Interesting to see the brewing in action. Tried a variety of different brews made on site. I particularly liked the San Diego Gold. Food was good, served warm, fast and friendly. Overall a great experience! Highly recommend!

I visited San Diego for work recently and I am a homebrewer, so I like to visit local breweries when I travel. San Diego Brewing Company was one of the closest breweries that served food from my hotel. The ambiance for a Tuesday evening was enjoyable; the pub was filled with young people in their 20s, 30s, & 40s. There... More

San Diego Brewing Co. is always on my list when I visit San Diego. A sports bar with friendly service, good food and close to 50 beers on tap. I order a veggie burger on sourdough with melted Swiss, and grilled onions and mushrooms.

This place has a good selection of beer, including some pretty good brews done in house. Food & service was on the mediocre side. My buffalo burger was pretty dry & the waitress was pretty inattentive.

The food is pretty good. I like the BLAT and tatters tots with a good selection of beers poured by knowledgeable and fun staff. Great spot for lunch.
