Main Tap Tavern

Densely populated with beer-swilling denizens, El Cajon might be equally stocked with craft-beer spots. Alas, it’s a virtual wasteland of macrobrew dives — with this single sterling exception. Equipped with 24 taps — most devoted to local liquid refreshment, but all siphoning out fine craft beer — Main Tap has swung for the fences.

Without a doubt, the ONLY place in El Cajon that you need to go. They remodled and it looks great, the staff is friendly, food is delish, they have a HUGE beer selection. Love the patio too!
