One of my favorite places in San Diego to eat and have some beers. The atmosphere is nice, lots of small and large tables throughout the restaurant. Order food at one spot, then take two steps to the left and order your beer from the bar.
Great selection of SD and other Southern CA beers. I have always been impressed by the selection here. Seems like they go out of their way to get unusual things that other pubs do not carry. I really like this. They have started brewing small batch house brews as well, which I've not tried but look forward to trying next time I am down there.
Service is great. Never had a problem. I really enjoy the food. Lots of great vegan options, including some very tasty vegan pizzas. Great to see this as far too few places like this have inclusive menus.
Crowd is always pretty lively and it can get crowded and maybe a tad loud, but never in an unenjoyable fashion.
Highly recommended if you are anywhere near downtown San Diego or the 30th St. corridor.

Blind Lady is great for anyone looking to have some great beers and pair them with delicious wood-fired pizzas. Best pizza I've ever had there was the Chorizo pizza, and paired it with a flight of Ballast Point beers on Nitro.
Really couldn't recommend this place more. The brewery is in the back, and sometimes you can take a peek.

I cant praise this place enough and as I write this I am asking myself why I have not gone back in a couple of months. BLAH is a rockstar establishment and everytime I have dined here I have been Soooo Happy afterwards. This place is awesome for Pizza as well as Beer. I love both those things so I win every time! The only ding I got is parking can be hard. But they are kid friendly so I forget about parking after that first sip of beer!

The Blind Lady Alehouse was pretty fun. Its a pretty casual place where all the ordering is done at the bar. The atmosphere has a vintage feel lent mostly from the classic advertisements for beer and the antique beers can displays everywhere. The music is appropriate and usually at a decent level too.
As far as selection, there is a great one regarding both beer and pub fare. Despite being a brewery (Automatic Brewery), there are ample options for craft beer from across the country and imports.
The food looked good but more specifically, the pizza is what is recommended. Pretty incredible stuff.

The Blind Lady Ale House was the hidden gem of my trip to San Diego. I wasn't staying anywhere near the place and ended up coming back three times.
A very nice dark wooden décor, located in a very cool, walkable area of town. Very laid back atmosphere, walk up to the bar and order your beer and food, take a number, grab a table and hang out until your food arrives. The service was friendly and informative. There was a nice beer selection with Pliny, 2 Societe beers, a couple of local saisons and a few of Automatic's own beers. The pizza here is simply amazing. The bacon and egg pizza is one of the best pizza's I've ever had. Coming from New York, I wasn't expecting that. The chef even came out and talked to us about how to recreate the dish at home. Overall, I really liked this place. I'd love to have a neighborhood bar like the Blind Lady Ale House.

Went here for a beer but couldnt resist getting a pizza when I saw them on the menu/someone else get one.
Service was super helpful. I like the setup for ordering food and beer, one celtralized cashier.
Pizza was great, nice and flat and crispy crust, really quality for West Coast pizza.
Lots of the house (Automatic beers) and plenty of other locals on the menu (around 20 if my memory recalls).
Definitely worth a visit for lunch as I heard it gets crowded as the day/night progresses.
Much better than the sister location Tiger! Tiger! if you just have to pick one.
