Nice place, lots of taps for draft. Wife had excellent French Dip, I had very good burger and fries. A bit dark and loud music, but fun for the late night younger crowd. Pretty good service, Will be back. If you liked review mark it "helpful"

Downtown location, I guess most people go for the beer and atmosphere. The food wasn't that great. They have a lot of choices but food is so so... Not a bad visit but wouldn't go back. Much better places around.

During a two week period visiting San Diego, we enjoyed our time spent in this large brew pub, not only because it was next door to our hotel & easy to reach in wet weather, but because it is such a lively place that serves good food & beverages. It is open daily between 11:00 am & 2.00 am. Very... More

Girlfriend loved the sour apple Martini (Absolut), had a generous pour. Had the 6th & Broadway Brown ($6) which was OK, neither bad or outstanding. The Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps ($7) were served with WILTED lettuce - no excuse for this!! And first impressions mean alot!!

Visiting San Diego as a stop on a cruise, we decided to find a spot for a beer and lunch and WiFi so I could catch up on my e-mail and post my latest Travel Blog Entry. The local tourist information kiosk suggested The Beer Co on Broadway, so we walked there from the port. Staff were friendly and confirmed... More

My husband and I split a delicious 10" or 12" veggie pizza at lunch on Saturday. Cooked in a fire oven, the crust was perfect, and the vegetables were generous and of good quality, including fresh peppers, mushrooms and onions, as well as artichokes. Since I am vegan, we ordered it without cheese. My non-vegan husband did not miss the... More

In all fairness,the bartender was working hard but he was basically by himself (apart from the backup helping him) and the bar was quite busy. Food wasnt great and I was not offered any kind of cuttlery (it was a burger but come on.... At least a tissue) or any sauce, and didnt have much chance to get one as,... More

Stopped at the Beer Company for Happy Hour and was very pleased. Drinks were very reasonable priced. Just had the appetizers but they were very good. Fun atmosphere with lots of people and sports on TV.
