The offspring of a successful Tijuana brewery, this bar and restaurant—with an on-site microbrewery—combines all the right ingredients for a fun night out. The bar's the focal point. Current craft brews on tap are listed on a chalkboard with descriptions (and alcohol content, for those of you keeping track) behind a series of bright red taps, while wood shelves are lined with several brands of tequila and other popular liquors. Beer bottles serve as hanging lights, and the brewery's shiny silver tanks seem to glow. Cooks rush about an open kitchen with a brick-framed grill, where hearty burgers, ribs, and steaks send tempting aromas through the air. Pizzas, flatbreads ,and cheese boards are perfect for sharing with beer flights, and the chef also prepares delicate Peruvian ceviche and salads. The casual rooftop scattering of tables, chairs, and wide-screen televisions encourages mingling. Most times it feels like a friendly bistro, but when fans fill the place during major sporting events, expect jeers, screams, and moans.
