The Corvette Diner is awful and brings out my inner Grinch. It's the noisiest restaurant I've ever been to, and this is by design. Corvette Diner now carries Stone IPA, so its bland, overpriced American food served with a strong helping of noise-induced headache can be eased with a decent beer - but of course the pint is not a real pint. Why is this not surprising? Corvette Diner, San Diego, December 1, 2009.

I'm still trying to figure out whether these were beer glasses or champagne flutes. Was there a liquidation special at the restaurant supply store? These had to be twelve ounce beers, tops. On the left is a Firehouse Hefeweizen and a Stone Pale Ale is on the right, La Gran Tapa, San Diego, December 6, 2009.

Like Charlie Brown, a friend kept getting poor pours while everyone else at the table was getting served full pints. This happened on three rounds, so I am guessing it must have been the brown ale's fault. The picture is a brown ale, don't know the brewer, at the San Diego Brewing Company November 20th, 2009

Ballast Point's Calico Amber Ale at Roseville in San Diego, September 14, 2009. Despite the neat glass this $4 beer was in a short glass, I am guessing 12 oz, maybe 14 oz. That much foam in such a short glass stinks, too. More on Roseville here.
