This wood-accented gastropub curates an impressive list of roughly 200 rotating beers (more than 20 draft, 180 bottled and 15 vintage pours from the cellar) that spans European and American styles and includes a large selection of local brews. Beer nerds will revel in rare suds, some costing as much as $79 for a 750ml bottle, such as the barrel-aged AleSmith Old Numbskull from San Diego. The small space is in inverse proportion to the expansive beer selection, so come early or be prepared to wait. The staff provides well-informed, if sometimes surly, drink suggestions to those who manage to secure a seat at the bar. Small groups can also snag booths along the wall.
