World's First Gay Brewery
From Mo's Universe owner and other self-proclaimed 'Queens of Beer' comes this 2,000 square-foot joint serving handcrafted beer and oven-brick pizza with a flair. Oh and a 15-foot beer chandelier.

      best brewery
      The food, service, beer, and music were the best tonight. I would highly recommend and make sure you get the Sissy Shrimp pizza! The is by far the most friendly restaurant since I've been in San Diego.

      Timing is everything. Hillcrest Brewing Company, billed as the first gay-owned microbrewery, opened at the height of the success of the trio of Urban Mo's, Baja Betty's, and Gossip Grill, and at the same time San Diego turned adjacent Blaine Ave into Harvey Milk Street and planted a giant Pride Flag at the corner of Normal and University. There wasn't a gayer block in the USA during that month of June 2012. And the Mo's free trolley quickly added HBC to its route, allowing those finished with and/or ready to enjoy signature crafted beers and square pizzas to bar-hop with ease. This is a casual, mixed environment with a larger patio than most. One request: more "bar food" options, even if it's only mixed nuts and chips. I mean, the pizza and salads are great, but...
