What more do you need to catch the next Chargers game than a TV and a good old-fashioned beer? Well, how about 10 high-definition flat-screen TVs, a 10-inch high-definition projector and more than 40 craft brews on tap? If that’s more your style, check out TapRoom in Pacific Beach for the next Chargers games.

Whether you’re a beer snob, a Chargers fan or you root for one of those other NFL teams, TapRoom has everything for game day. There’s little excuse for not joining other locals at the neighborhood pub as the Chargers take on the Tennessee Titans on Sept. 16 at 1:25 p.m. and the Atlanta Falcons on Sept. 23 at 1:05 p.m.

“We get a Chargers crowd that creates a really exciting and fun atmosphere to watch the games,” said owner Kevin Conover. “We are San Diego-based — born and raised — and we naturally draw a local crowd that makes you feel right at home.”

On game day, you can find area Chargers fans gathered at the local watering hole cheering on their favorite team and exploring the bar’s expansive list of draft and bottled beer, which includes local, national and international craft-brew favorites, sprinkled here and there with the occasional mass-produced staple.

“[They’re] mostly local, with some rarities like Pliny the Elder and one-off collaborations,” Conover said. “The San Diego IPA is, for sure, our most popular style. Beers like Sculpin, AleSmith IPA and Port Mongo have the highest demand, but our Belgians are also gaining in popularity, thanks to beers like Lil Devil and Horny Devil, which have turned people onto this style of beer.”

For guests who can’t decide between a sour or a stout, TapRoom also offers beer flights, allowing guests to sample six-ounce tasters of up to six different beers, starting at just $2.50 per sample.

To supplement the host of combinations of refreshing liquid, you’ll also score with TapRoom’s mouth-watering menu items, like the bite-size pizza-influenced beer soakers or a spoonful of the restaurant-bar’s signature Sculpin IPA chili.

TapRoom also offers full breakfasts on Saturdays and Sundays, alongside drink specials that include mimosas and bloody Mary’s made by San Diego’s very own Ballast Point Brewery, for those who want to get a jump start on their football Sunday.

“The game day ambiance is high energy to say the least — everyone wearing their jerseys, cheering for their teams, having a great time,” said Conover. “It can be a little loud, so be warned.”

TapRoom welcomes fans of all teams and has the sports package subscriptions to support them. TapRoom also cheers on the New York Giants and promotes such collegiate programs as Washington State, Clemson, Indiana University and San Diego State University.

TapRoom is located at 1269 Garnet Ave. For more information, to call in an order, or to ask about a specific game being televised, call (858) 274-1010 or visit
