This divey, dimly-lit drinking den boasts the city's best selection of craft beers, and in hops-happy San Diego, that's saying something. The bar features 28 taps and over 200 choices of bottles; local (Karl Strauss, Ballast Point) and West Coast (Russian River, Allagash) breweries dominate the ever-changing list, but look for rare offerings from Belgium, Germany, and England as well. Throw in a couple of coin-op pool tables, shuffleboard, a killer jukebox, and a kitchen that puts out five kinds of grilled cheese sandwiches, and you're in beer drinking heaven. Only downside to all this goodness is that the joint gets packed on weekends.
