beers 349 º places 1 º 13:17 Fri 5/3/2013

I will be in San Diego this month on 14th-16th. My days are wide open, but evening are booked, and wondered if anyone would like to meet up for a beer. I am hoping to visit Lost Abbey and Alesmith breweries. If anyone has any suggestions of some local places that are a must, I am open to recommendations.

I have found some places with high reviews on the places tab and intend to hit some of those up as well.

Thanks,
Kyle

Lost Abbey, Alesmith, Stone, and Toronado are must visit spots, at least in my opinion. Hamilton’s Tavern is also great and has some tasty food options as well. Also, Pizza Port Carlsbad with the bottle shop attached is excellent if you love good pizza a great variety of beers.

30th Street in Nort Park has some pretty legit places..Tiger!Tiger, Ritual Tavern, Toronado, Bottle Craft is not too far, and for food...Urban Solace. Breweries....I’d hit Societe, Alesmith, Green Flash, and Lost Abbey. For food and beer...Urge Gastropub any Pizza Port location

It’s a great place for ticks, but it is seriously work getting through 6 different variations of the same crappy blonde ale.

I was talking to a couple who just got back from a San Diego trip and recommended Alpine on the way in. I’ve heard of them, but never tried anything. Anyone have any opinions on them and if they would be worth the stop on the way in?

Kyle, you MUST stop. Good food and you can pick me up 6 bottles of Nelson. Win-win!

In all seriousness, yes! You should absolutely stop at Alpine and grab a bite to eat and a pint. Then head next door to the brewery and take some things to go.
