Thrillist recognizes iPourIt operator Barrel Republic in Pacific Beach, California as one of the best craft beer bars in San Diego.

San Diego has a reputation as one of the country’s distinguished beer brewing cities.

With over 200 breweries and brewpubs in San Diego, there’s a saturation of places to find beer. However, if you’re looking for a bar rather than a brewery, Thrillist put together a list of the best craft beer bars in San Diego.

Barrel Republic, iPourIt operator and the first operator to implement the self-serve concept and iPourIt technology, made the list! Thrillist says, “Barrel Republic is a gamechanger — the nation’s first self-service craft beer bar.”

Barrel Republic in Pacific Beach has 52 self-serve taps pouring a wide selection of craft beers, ciders, wines, sours and more. The two other locations are in Carlsbad with 62 taps and Oceanside with 60 taps.

Check out the full review and the list of bars throughout America’s Finest City for truly a sublime beer-drinking experience!
