We first hit the Rock Bottom Brewery located in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter. Sure, it's a chain but it's the only brewpub in the Quarter and they do make beer on site. We hit up the Liquid Sunshine and the Mary Jane IPA. Liquid Sunshine is a good pilsner - full malt flavor with a nice bitter hops finish (as opposed to a flowery hop finish). By far the better of the two brews we sampled. We finished the afternoon with Mary Jane IPA for obvious reasons. It's a fine if forgettable IPA.
After drinking from the Wells at Mr. A's, we hit The Field, an Irish Pub, for a nightcap. This stop was more about atmosphere than the brews. Like any good Irish pub, the Field features low lighting, dark wood, and live Irish music. We settled down for a few Boddington's and soaked in the evening. The Field may be a regular night cap stop for the remainder of the week.
