While in town for a family reunion we tried the Barrel Republic in Pacific Beach. What a find! Great ambiance, a concept that worked for everyone and a casual, fun environment. Travis and Andrew were helpful and fun. I'd highly recommend this place.

Very friendly staff - 52 taps that you serve yourself. Despite 52 taps there were not a lot of beers I particularly was interested in. Nice atmosphere. Worth a visit.
