    No Pliny the Elder but it's holding up to the SF locale.
  • North Park Farmers' Market
    Some of the best beer folks in San Diego! It's awesome to be one of the first farmers' markets in the region to host local breweries, & Market Managers love stopping by Toronado for 'inspiration' ;).

    One of the early craft beer bars in North Park. Good day spot to hang with friends. Rotating selections and a walkable neighbor to get records, food, more beer and even more beer.

    Try the Spicy Mac and Cheese. Passilla peppers, chipotle, and habañero should help you sweat out some of the calories. Bonus: there are 50-plus beers on tap to pair with it. Read more

    The jukebox has the entire "Remain In Light" album by the Talking Heads. Throw that thing on and enjoy your night. "Born Under Punches" is especially good.

    Monday nights at Toronado are for local beers: just $3 a pint! Theyve also got a huge selection of other craft brews on tap & if youre a fan of good pub eats, they serve some mean burgers until 10pm!

    Know what you want before you come here. It isn't easy to order if you aren't familiar with the beers offered. Try the taphunter or ratebeer app for info on the beers listed.
