Enjoy a fun filled afternoon featuring our public transportation system, the San Diego Trolley. Who says you need a car to get anywhere in San Diego? BeerNerdz is centering some of our favorite activities around trolley stops. Golf, food and beer on a beautiful summer day in San Diego is a tough combination to beat!
The day starts at Presidio Hills Golf Course in Old Town, which has hosted the likes of Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson in their youth. Names will be drawn randomly at Presidio to determine each 4 person team to compete in a scramble format (basically everyone hits and you take the best shot among the group and repeat till the ball is in the hole). Presidio is a pitch and putt with hole lengths that range between 20-95 yards. To create a level playing field each team will be allowed one club which will be rented from Presidio (golf ball will be provided as well).
Once we’re done testing our golf skills and worked up an appetite we’ll jump on the trolley and head to Downtown Johnny Browns. Downtown Johnny Browns is a great beer bar tucked away behind the Civic Center. It’s a great place with a solid food and tap selection, TV’s and two of my favorite bar games, shuffleboard and darts. There you’ll have two hamburger options to choose from with a beer appropriately paired with it.
After some good eats and beer we’ll head to our last stop downtown via the trolley where we’ll reconvene with our teammates and challenge our palates with a BeerNerdz blind tasting featuring the awesome beer from Beer Co. Kirk at Beer Co brews some incredible beer and I am excited to showcase his talents. You’ll be given a scorecard with a description of each beer being served. Your challenge will be to match the station to the description on the scorecard. After the tasting the team with the combination of the lowest round at Presidio and the highest graded scorecard will be crowned team champions. Prize to be determined.
There you have it. This is an event you won’t want to miss! All you need to do is sign up, show up and be ready to do have a great time among other like minded new friends!
