Fodor's Review

San Diego's first mircobrewery now has multiple locations, but the original one remains a staple. This locale draws an after-work crowd for pints of Red Trolley Ale and later fills with beer connoisseurs from all walks of life to try Karl's latest concoctions. Beer-to-go in half-gallon "growlers" is very popular, and the German-inspired pub food is above average.
