West Coast BBQ & Brew

San Diego

The dude behind SD's noted, Irish-named, American beer pub, O'Brien's, has decided to travel a more straight-forward route with the less-confusingly USA-focused West Coast BBQ & Brew: an easily overlooked, La Mesa hole-in-the-wall where the carefully curated beer list will be bolstered by grilled meats from a custom wood-pit BBQ stoked by a pit master with 50yrs of experience, which is totally mind-blowing considering World of Warcraft only came out in 2004.
